The Elgato Cam Link 4k is highly rated for streaming. This Cam Link hard to find in-stock due to increased demand because of COVID. If you are in the market for a camera capture link with Clean HDMI, this is the product for you. This is not on-sale, just in-stock at Best Buy without paying the COVID Tax.

Good popular product.

Note that multiple camera brands have come out with freeware to use their DSLR/compacts etc as webcams. I think there is even a Wyze Cam hack these days :p

edit: Canon & Nikon links below
Wyze is apparently legit/official

Most reviews of those freeware found them of mediocre quality though. If IQ is not a consideration, then one could always buy a generic converter dongle for less than $30.

They released an official firmware to use wyze cams as a webcam. Just have to have the right USB cable but they're readily available on Amazon. Works great.

Also, I didn't realize other companies had done this. I just found one for my Canon dslr that I'm going to try out. I just got the op product but haven't used it yet do you might have just saved me $130.

After watching a review [youtube.com]on streaming with the Nikon Utility and OBS without a HDMI/USB capture card, it is pretty low quality, albeit better than a webcam. Maybe it will improve after a few updates. For now, if you are needing 1080p or better at a decent bit-rate, the Elgato Cam Link + OSB software looks like the best bet. Yes, there are also knockoff alternatives.

Hd60 s+ does everything the camlink does but adds pass through.

In what situations would having passthrough come in handy?

For example if you have a console and you want to both stream the video and show on a TV at the same time

I live stream dance performances while also live projecting to screens on the sides of the stage.
