GoPro HERO7 Black – Best Camera For Streams

It’s without a question that the GoPro HERO7 Black is the best camera for streams if you want the best quality available. Since June, GoPro has been testing using the GoPro HERO7 Black as a high-definition webcam using just a USB-C cable. However, this won’t work on the Silver model.

With the GoPro app, you can stream directly to Facebook, Twitch and YouTube which is great for musicians. When live events kick off, this will be fantastic for documenting your shows too.


Logitech StreamCam – Best Webcam for Streams

The Logitech StreamCam was released earlier in 2020 as is intended for content creators – and included in that is musicians and DJs. The webcam can record Full HD 1080P at 60 fps and uses a USB Type-C cable. In our tests the autofocus worked well when moving around the studio. The Logitech StreamCam can also rotate in order to record vertical videos (Instagram Story for example).


Logitech C920 – Best Budget Webcam For Streams

While its a few years old, the Logitech C920 is arguably better than the newer C922 Pro and records fantastic, high-quality video. It’s most likely a big upgrade from your built-in webcam and with a long cord you will be able to place it in a number of locations.
