Level Up Your Content

For those who want their content to be visually captivating, you can use the Cam Link and hook up your DSLR, camcorder, or action cam to your Windows or Mac system.

Plug & Produce

Coupled with Cam Link, your camera appears as a webcam in all your favorite apps, including Game Capture, OBS, and Skype. Up to 1080p at 60 fps or 4K at 30 fps resolution keeps your stream professional while ultra-low-latency technology gets you up and running on YouTube, Facebook Live, Twitch, and more.

Simplify Your Workflow

Say goodbye to maxing out your memory card mid-shoot. When recording with Cam Link, all content is stored directly on your hard drive, while real-time, full-screen feedback lets you edit scenes on the spot.

It's Showtime

Whatever you wish to shoot, the Cam Link puts it live on your screen for mass distribution. All you need to do is connect your camera and let the show begin.

Elgato Cam Link 4K Reviews

Works as advertised

Using this with a Xv-e10 as a webcam. Perfect

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.

Best for single video sources

I've used cheaper versions of this but none of them hold up to what this does. It seems like you should be able to get away with a cheap alternative but they tend to overheat or even freeze up. For instance, I bought this to replace an older Atomos which would occasionally just lose the video signal for no apparent reason. And Atomos is a brand that knows what they're doing (not blaming them specifically since it is an older card).

Reliable

This is a must if you need a professional caliper video capture card. We bought cheap knock offs from other sites and they work sometimes, but also have failed for no reason. This is our go to for our productions that require mission-critical success.

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.
