The last several years have brought about some big changes in video technology, but webcams have been left behind. 

So what's the solution? Ditch webcams! In my recent course on better webcam video, I gave a full rundown of the steps you can take to set up a super-high-quality video-streaming rig of your very own.

But do you need a high-end camera to pull this off? Or will something more basic work? In this short video tutorial from the course, you will learn what sort of video camera to use for recording webcam video.

In the full course, Better Webcam Video, I will show you how to set up a system using a consumer video camera and a capture device to get the best live-streaming video quality possible.

You will learn which solutions will work and which won’t, for both Mac and PC. You will also look at how to set up the camera and lighting to make you look your best, and how to get great-sounding audio. Not only will this work for live-streaming services like Ustream, YouTube Live, and Google Hangouts On-Air, but it will also work for just about any video conferencing app out there like Skype, Google Hangouts, and more.
