[Question] Webcam purchase - Streaming on Twitch
« on: 12:35 PM - 04/22/14 »
What webcam should I buy???!?!?


Logitech C310 USB 2.0 HD WebCam
Logitech C920 USB 2.0 certified (USB 3.0 ready) HD Pro Webcam
Microsoft 5WH-00002 LifeCam Studio for Business USB 2.0 WebCam
Microsoft Q2F-00013 USB WebCam

I need some more camera's for streaming on twitch and for capturing my hands and solder work...

Requirements:
* No sloppy motion
* 1080p for solder work
* ease of mounting

Secondly, should I buy a mic or just a new mixamp so i can pass my chat audio along to the stream?

The logitech c920 has good reviews and good low light performance.

However, you'll want to go with this




That "natural curve" you [roads] are talking about was me taking a wild guess what the game was doing (which was completely wrong of course).

😂😂😭

Logitech C310 USB 2.0 HD WebCam(Marginal video quality)
Logitech C920 USB 2.0 certified (USB 3.0 ready) HD Pro Webcam(Best of the ones listed)
Microsoft 5WH-00002 LifeCam Studio for Business USB 2.0 WebCam(Own and the quaility is okay/Autofocus is a PITA sometimes)
Microsoft Q2F-00013 USB WebCam(Marginal video quality)

Dedicated mic and pc interface will sound much better than astro's out but the price is much cheaper w/ the Mixamp.

dont RED cameras start in the 40k region for just the basic core model without any accessory? :P

There are literally 100s of combos for mic and interfaces. What are you looking to spend and I'm sure a few of us can recommend a dedicated mic setup. As far as camera the Logitech HD Pro C920 is the best on the market currently for quality per dollar.
