Quality Livestreaming Video Setup

livestreaming video quality

The Canon M50 Mk II allows you to livestream to YouTube, and its reputation is phenomenal in the quality department. I recommend a quality external mic because I have no idea how your auditorium sounds or whether there’ll be a good sound transfer from your PA to the camera’s built-in mic.

Some Considerations When Using This Camera for Livestreaming

– Requires wi-fi connection with 3-6 Mbps upstream

– Requires usb connection to laptop

– Cannot record to SD card while streaming

– Recommend using external mic to improve sound

Canon M50 Mk II

The Canon M50 Mk II is a popular camera because of its flexibility, reticulating monitor and overall gorgeous recording quality. Paired with a 200 mm lens, you can record from a distance.

Rode VideoMic On-Camera

The Rode Mic mounts on the hotshoe of the camera when used within 3 feet of speaker. Otherwise, use 20 ft. extension cord, below, to connect mic to camera from podium/boom stand.
