How can you use your Canon DSLR, Sony Mirrorless, or even your Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera as a webcam? That's been a common question these days. As more people continue to work from home, Video conferencing has become more of a necessity. While basic webcams are suffice, there may be reasons you will need cameras with more abilities and features. Features such as better low light performance, wide angle lenses to fit a large conference room, or maybe you need audio inputs from a wireless Lav mic when teaching a distance from the camera - simple features where a basic webcam may fall short.
By simply adding a capture device, you can turn just about any camera into a webcam for use with applications such as Zoom, Webex, Skype, Hangouts and even Facetime. Rik Cordero from Runplayback.com gives us a look at a popular HDMI USB capture device from Inogeni.
