Elgato Cam Link 4K Reviews

Great Service as always from B&H

So far, in all my purchases from B&H I have been extremely satisfied. Packaging, performance, details and price. The Elgato Cam link allows me to take my live streams to a more professional level. Quality products.

Amazing device highly recommended

We have 4 of these and ALWAYS worked flawlessly. People using it should try to undestand what this device is about and how to manage your computer to work wih it. Most people don´t respect the bandwidth of the USB and the bus has a limited one. We managed to wrok with 3 at a time but there is a limit ti what you can do. The camlink is only a conversion device and if it doesn´t work it is likely to be the computer not fast enough or probably needs a restar. We love the quality and what it does for this little money. Thank you for a great product.

I’ve used this cam link 4K and it died after a couple of months. It blinks 3x every time I connect but it stops working after that.

I have tested it on 2 separate mac, with 2 different dslr's and cannot get a signal. I have used powered usb's, connected it to independent Graphics cards, nothing. Also customer service at Elgato is a never ending loop of bot's, terrible trying to get help.

My Streaming Quality is A++

I had been using the built in webcam software on my pc for streaming and finally decided to grab a cam link. The quality difference is ASTOUNDING. I love the crisp, clear quality I get from it. It really maximizes the lens capabilities of your camera.

can this be used too turn my Panasonic GH5 into a webcam?
Asked by: gavriel
If your Panasonic can output its source through HDMI cable live, then it should work. For example, I'm using a Canon camcorder that outputs its signal through HDMI. This could be used to connect the camera to a TV so I can see in real time what the camera is recording. In my case, I'm using the camcorder as a webcam for my daughter. Once the camera is on, it's plugged into the Cam Link, and the PC recognizes it as a web cam. Depending on your camera, you can clean up your output so all you see is the video and not the battery level, focus/metering/etc.

Does Premiere Pro recognize this video capture device?
Asked by: Jerry
I'm a bit confused by this question. Cam Link isn't a video camera, it's a device that turns a camera into something capable of streaming. So if you have a camera that shoots in a format that Premiere can read (i.e. most everything) than you're good. If you're asking, can you live record something directly into Premiere...I have no clue and honestly don't know why you'd want to do that if Premiere could.
