Webcam Mania!

Today on Video Marketing Madness – Webcam Mania. Ray gives us a bunch of webcam options.

-Built in camera – OK but not great
-Logitech C920. Good all-purpose webcam HD
-Smartphone with Camo interface software. Best quality, but it had a conflict with Ray’s streaming software
-Mivo Cam. Connects to smartphone and now has webcam capabilities. Very good quality, but everything is in focus. Little depth of field
-DSLR. Canon provides the software interface

Best Buy and Micro Center (25 locations in 16 states) should have all this stuff.
