Sony HDR-FX7, I believe has Firewire and HDMI out.

For Firewire you can use it in DV or HDV mode but unless you're streaming HD, DV is easier for CPUs the handle.

To use HDMI out you'd probably want to use Blackmagic Intensity Pro card.

How's this for Canon 7D streaming awesome?

RC Copter, Canon 7D mounted, Teradek Cube sends wirelessly and apparently to Livestream direct or through Telestream Wirecast for multiple camera switching.

Either way it looks like Canon 7D to Livestream is viable. I still wonder about the camera overheating though.

Hi

Im new to streaming live, and i need some help finding the right equipment.

I would like to stream soccer matches from my local soccer team, and therefor need a camera that can deliver good enough pictures. I have possibility to get Canon products to a reduced price from a friend. Is there any Canon camera that can fix the job? if not, what camera can you recomend?

Have a look at our list of Procaster's certified devices, which includes a few Canon cameras:

Hi Guys,

For connecting your cameras, use either the Canopus 110 firewire to composite box or a HDMI card in your computer.(I use a desktop, so it installs in a PCe slot)

Either of these will work with the majority of AVCHD cameras on the market.
Even my little Microsoft Cinecam works great for a webcam and produces great shots.

For sound, I suggest that you have a look at a small mixer (Behringer USB Podcast kit is great) and make sure your camera can take an external mic out. It sounds better and stops annoying feedback through the system.

I was reading today about the new wireless link systems that are available for streaming though Livestream. That sounds impressive!

Just a heads up that USB sound/mixing devices aren't supported by Procaster. It doesn't necessarily mean they won't work - but rather that we haven't done much testing with them and may not be able to provide support based on this setup.

Best,
Jason

I know this might be a long shot, but have you looked into the Canon 5D Mark II? Probably your best "camcorder" made. I guess more a camera than video, but it is a great video camera as well

Smile what camera

Hi
I would like to buy a camcorder that is cheap and not to professional. I have looked at a lot of the Panasonic camcorders but not sure if they will work and how to connect them to my mac for live stream, what out puts does the camera need and what cables do i need?
I would like it to be able to just plug in and live stream.

Can any body recommend a camcorder
between 50-600
Comes with a remote
Long battery life
able to record to SD card
Able to plug a extra MIC in

Thanks
Ross
