As Riverside supports up to 4k resolution, an external digital camera is a great tool for the job!

Though most major camera companies today have added the ability to use your camera as a webcam with just a USB cable, there is often a caveat. Using solely software and a USB cable often limits the recording resolution that is supported. Here are the max resolutions supported by the manufacturers with this setup:

EOS Webcam Utility (Cannon) - 1024x576

Imaging Edge (Sony) - 1024x576

Nikon Webcam Utility (Nikon) - 1024x768

In order to get the most our of your DSLR or Mirrorless camera, we recommend using a capture card such as the Elgato CamLink. This will allow you to utilize higher resolutions up to 4k.
