An HDMI Capture Card increases the amount of data an external camera can send to a computer during a recording session.
When using an External DSLR or Mirrorless Camera, an HDMI capture card allows you to record with a higher resolution than a USB otherwise would. Among Riverside creators, a commonly used capture card is:
- Elgato Cam Link 4K
- IMPORTANT: Check your external camera's compatibility and its maximum resolution with the Cam Link on Elgato's website.
