What Camera Should I Use For My Live Stream?

As churches are producing and streaming digital content we’ve had many questions about what cameras we recommend. There are a lot of variables at play such as what platform you might be using (Zoom, Youtube/Facebook etc.), what expertise you have amongst your volunteers, as well as budget.

We’ve come together with a few of our professional friends to contribute some thoughts and recommendations for cameras that hopefully suit your live-streaming needs.

For the purposes of this post, we are assuming that you are using a computer and have the ability to feed an HDMI (or SDI as appropriate) input into the computer in a format that works for your platform of choice. We are also mostly ignoring audio, as we are assuming you will feed the audio either into the camera outlined here, or directly into the computer (with the ability to sync the audio up with the video feed).

We’ve also put together some handy package guidelines with rough prices that we would recommend which will hopefully give you a ballpark idea of what solution at what price point is suitable for you and your needs. If you have any questions about your setup, please do get in touch with the friendly team at OBT.
