Webcam Settings

This macOS app is a must-have if you do any live-streaming or video recording with a webcam! Webcam Settings gives you control over your camera's settings so you can get the best quality possible:

  • Exposure
  • Brightness
  • Contrast
  • Hue
  • Saturation
  • Sharpness
  • White balance temperature
  • Noise reduction
  • Focus

Some of these features may not be available for a Mac's built-in webcam, but using an external camera, like the Logitech C922x or C920, will unlock all these features for fine control.

The Canon T7i includes the latest image processing, a flip-out screen, and works with all EF-S lenses.

Mirrorless cameras are smaller and lighter weight than DSLRs, and Sony makes some of the best! The a6500 records in beautiful 4K video and still offers the versatility of interchangeable lenses.
