Elgato released the original model of the Cam link back in 2017. The small device allows any compatible DSLR to be used as a webcam. This proved to be popular among professional streamers where grainy webcam quality just won’t cut it anymore. It also removes the need to go out and purchase a separate high quality webcam if you’re already the owner of a decent camera for other content creation. With 4K being more and more popular and if you’re lucky enough to have the internet connection to keep up, then Elgato have now updated the CAM link with a brand new 4K model. It costs about the same as its predecessor at £120 but how easy is it to use and is it worth the investment?
