How to choose
How we test

Choosing one of the best cameras for streaming is essential if you’re serious about content creation and going live online. Let’s say you’ve decided to take up vlogging, or you’ve created a Twitch account, or are new to TikTok shop and simply don’t know where to start. Sure, a basic MacBook webcam and microphone can do the job, but the visuals and audio produced will be of limited quality compared to the best streaming cameras.
