Many gamers who livestream on Twitch, Mixer, YouTube or Facebook Gaming are starting to look for ways to differentiate themselves from other streamers on the platforms in order to bring in more viewers and create a better viewing experience for their current community.
That, along with the lack of any real innovation in the current webcam market, has caused many streamers to turn to using more professional-type digital cameras, whether DSLR or Mirrorless, for their livestreams.
The two most popular entry-level digital cameras for this purpose tend to be the Sony A5100 and the newer Canon EOS M200. Personally, I like the Canon system as it’s a newer system and offers 4k video which is great for creating content outside of livestreams.
The biggest problem is that most gamers and streamers are not very experience with these types of cameras. I thought I could be of help by providing a video that shows you the best settings I’ve found for using the Canon EOS M200 as a webcam replacement for your livestream!
I hope it helps and if there’s anything you disagree with or if you found a better way of doing something, please let me know in the comments so I can give it a try!
