Previous price was $118, not a huge discount but might be useful for some people.

Cam Link wouldn't work for that. This is meant for recording and or streaming videos from an outside source, meant for camera but you could also use a console hdmi as the input, and it has input delay and needs to be plugged in via hdmi to the cam link and then you plug the cam link into your pc via usb.

Can this be used to capture a video of the entire screen of my DSLR or SONY A6400 to demonstrate the menu functions?

Yes, you can view almost 100% of what you see on your rear screen and/or the viewfinder.

This is a capture device that is designed to "translate" a HDMI-out feed from a DSLR/MILC/camcorder etc cameras and effectively make it be recognized as a "hi-resolution" webcam by windows and relative broadcast & streaming programs.

If you have a console, you can plug it directly to the PC monitor, perhaps with a HDMI -> DVI cable or HDMI splitter.

If you want to game on a stand-alone device, research getting a raspberry pi with an emulator, or other "Stick" Windows or Android PCs.

Great Idea, I was thinking of doing some videos on this kind of thing.

Quick question if anyone knows, does this take any less/more system resources while streaming? Like compared to running a C920 webcam @1080p, would this take more or less system resources to run with my mirrorless camera?

camlink, like the HD60s, doesn't have a hardware encoder (the HD60 does, but it also introduces desync) so your PC is doing all the encoding.. you can choose software or hardware. Compared to the c920? I have no idea... probably less since you're not going to be needing the logitech software anymore if you switch.

Also... if you're talking about streaming with a lil cam window... you shouldn't be using 1080p anyways... 720p (even 480p) is fine for that. You're just wasting resources using 1080p and streaming since your stream won't be able to tell the difference. Now if you're talking about being FULLSCREEN camming.. or if you have great internet and no bottle-necking on the streaming platform... then disregard.

EposVox on youtube is a good resource for stream stuff.
