Best Cameras for Video Podcasting

Logitech C922x

Stream in 1080p HD from your computer! The Logitech C922x builds on the quality and reliability of the C920 (which is also a great, cheaper alternative) and adds 60 FPS at 720p, and smart background replacement for green-screen effects.

Logitech BRIO 4K webcam

For 4K streaming and recording directly into your computer, the Logitech BRIO is the right choice! Even if you don’t need 4K, this gives you plenty of resolution to zoom or crop without compromising HD video quality. Plus, the BRIO includes intelligent HDR image processing to make you look better in with almost any lighting!

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.

Canon EOS Rebel T7i DSLR

A DSLR is an affordable way to capture high-quality HD video with all the versatility of detachable lenses. I started with a Canon T4i and it has lasted well.

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

Sony a6500 mirrorless

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.
