Great to be part of the Vmix forum.

I am researching cameras to use with Vmix and I prefer Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, and will consider other camera solutions that will work.

Prefer to stay under the $1000 range for budget purposes.

Can the forum members give me a recommendation as to what works, perhaps model numbers so we can do some additional research.

Thanks so much,

Do you already have a capture device?
What is your use case? Live events, studio?

Im also shopping for cameras. Following this thread.

I am new to Vmix so I am researching cameras, capture devices, etc.

The camera will be used for in-studio recording of interviews. Unlikely for now that it will include "live" events.

But, the interviews need to be clean, at least 1080p. Zoom if possible, but not a deal breaker.

If possible, I like the idea of the camera also having still photo capability.

You could go with a dslr and get an hdmi capture device.

However for a studio. I would get as many camera angles or shots as possible to keep it interesting.

PTZ optics has an ePTZ camera that looks really useful.

Im thinking about getting a pair of them and then setting up a bunch of shots in the software to do the switching.

This would make them single use for your studio but would be major bang for buck. 2 can be had for about $1000. When they come in stock that is.

Thanks for the feedback. Using multiple cameras would be ideal.

I am thinking our main camera (center) would be something like a DSLR and then perhaps 1 camera left and 1 camera right.

Thanks for the feedback. Any recommended megapixel, features, etc.

Im still learning myself.

If you do any further research, please share what you find.

Will do. Hopefully the forum has some additional insight.
