    1) Their website claims this device can use “clean HDMI” when paired with the Canon T7i (Canon 800D), but this is simply not true. Or it should at least be stated more clearly what is required. The ONLY WAY to avoid on-screen menu items / focus boxes on the video output is to disable autofocus on the camera. 🙁 But who is going to do that?!? Sure, Elgato’s website lists the Canon T7i as being “clean HDMI” compatible, but they really need to put an asterisks to let people know this would also require completely disabling autofocus. For this reason alone, the device is useless to me. My plan was to use it to livestream on YouTube. But I don’t want all my viewers seeing an autofocus box following my face around the whole time. And I can’t disable autofocus because I am a one-man shop making YouTube videos at home. 2) There is different option (without needing this Cam Link device at all!!) to run video from your DSLR to your computer (in my case laptop) in order to live stream on YouTube. At least for Mac it’s called “Camera Live” and it’s free software. You need a USB cable to connect your camera to your laptop. Then I use OBS to stream the video. It works fine… EXCEPT that while live streaming the fan on my laptop was spinning like crazy, because I suppose this whole operation is very CPU intensive. I thought that perhaps getting this Elgato Cam Link 4k device would somehow offload the necessary computing to the device itself…. so that my laptop wouldn’t spin the fan so crazy fast during the live stream (which is also recorded in the audio). BUT…. THIS IS NOT THE CASE. Yeah, the Cam Link 4k device itself was getting rather warm/hot…. but my laptop fan STILL started spinning up like crazy. (And I have a fast MacBook Pro.) Sooo… the moral of the story…. just stick with a USB cable & Camera Live software like I mentioned earlier… you can actually get a completely clean video output WITHOUT any Heads Up Display on-screen menu items showing… and your laptop cpu fan is going to go crazy anyway, no matter what you do. No need to buy this device! Save your money. Additionally I contacted Elgato’s customer support to ask about a refund and they said NO. Not willing to help me out. Even though their website table of compatible cameras was (in my opinion) quite misleading and almost false advertising. If you have a different DSLR that can provide clean HDMI out, then the number 1 issue I described above will not be a problem for you.Read more

    I should probably start with saying that I stream on Twitch, and I wanted to make use of my Nikon D5200 DSLR camera since it’s been sitting sadly in a corner collecting dust. I do not use this for Zoom/Skype meetings, however I have used it for a single Discord video call. I will also list my PC specs at the end of this review for reference. The reason I chose the CamLink is because a couple friends I have who stream also use this device, so I figured this would be the best option since they know way more than I do about what the best hardware is specifically for streaming. It’s genuinely just plug and play. I had no issues with making it work with my Nikon. HOWEVER, I’ve flashed custom firmware onto my Nikon D5200 that bypasses the auto shutoff timer. If you’re not comfortable with modding your camera (assuming there’s modded firmware that can bypass your camera’s auto shutoff feature), I would find a different camera that natively has the option to disable auto shutoff if cost isn’t an issue. Integration with SLOBS (StreamLabs OBS) is fantastic. I can use the CamLink 4K alongside my Elgato 4k60 PRO with zero issues. I can also switch between PC and console game scenes and the CamLink is not affected and doesn’t lag. All in all, I have zero complaints about the Elgato CamLink 4k, and I would recommend this product to a friend.

    TL;DR: Overheats. Overpriced. Don’t waste your money; buy the Pengo HDMI grabber instead at 1/3 the price and enjoy a native USB-C connector to boot. It’s sad…Elgato is a company I’ve been buying products from for years, but not likely anymore. After purchasing the Cam Link 4K on the advice of a consultant, I was expecting their consistent quality that I’ve enjoyed in their other products, like EyeTV, which I’ve been using for years. This product isn’t even close to their standard. Its big problem is that it consistently overheats and the feed from my camera goes black. Not a good thing to happen during a live event. Happened regularly. So, I returned it for a replacement, thinking I just got a bad one. But the second one did the exact same thing. Failed consistently right out of the box. And I don’t need 4K. 1080p is fine for me. I’m not sure I know any of my peers who do, since we’re all sending video streams to web services that can barely deliver 720p – so the Pengo HDMI capture device is perfect, at 1/3 the cost and no need for a USB 3 to USB C adapter, either plugs right into my Mac Mini. After the back-to-back Cam Link 4K failures, I can’t help but touch the Pengo every so often to see if it’s warm, and it’s always cool as a cucumber. I’ve been using it for over 5 months, not a single glitch.Read more

    This works as advertised. Make sure you read thoroughly Elgato’s camera compatible list. If it says the community has stated it works then MAKE SURE you do research first as it may work but not as intended for your use. I had purchase a camera to use with it and it would cut into sleep mode after 30 minutes even with tweaks. Not Elgato’s fault. I was lucky enough to be able to return the camera and get a 100% supported one but you may not be so lucky. If you have a 100% compatible camera but are having issues capturing the video you may have an overloaded USB channel and need to remove other devices or buy a dedicated USB PCIE card.Read more

    If anyone’s considering buying an elgato camlink, do some homework. I have been struggling on and off for more than 18months with them. My first one would work perfectly (with a canon 5DIV) but then started to randomly drop signal without any warning or indication. Meaning whilst streaming, suddenly the cam went black yet you don’t realise (i use streamelements). This also happened in SLOBS too. I had to switch on / off the camera several times until it eventually came back. Then a new phenomenon started to appear. The screen would work and stay on, but all of a sudden the hue/colour would turn green and purple, making me look a skinny hulk! Again, funny initially, but annoying. I would have to power cycle the camera and restart OBS. Not good mid stream. Then the drop outs got worse and worse. I was dealing wiht Elgato for months on end, they could recreate the issue with the green/purple hue, and their workaround was to play with the colour sliders in the software. This did not solve the issue at all. In fact it’s been more than 3months and it still happens. Eventually I relented and sent it back to amazon, and bought another one (I really wanted this camlink to work). Now I get no dropouts, but continuous green/purple hues. If that’s not enough, it freezes now in OBS. Checked the hdmi out put from my canon, it works fine. It’s a shame, when it worked, the 5DIV was perfect, with good glass. For now though, Logitech C922. Works all day every day. I don’t have room in my build for a capture card unfortunately (ITX build in a Dan A4 case).Read more

    Der Cam Link ist einfach Klasse. Unter Linux und Windows läuft das Ding ohne jegliche zusätzliche Treiberinstallation in 2 Minuten und gibt sich als Webcam aus. Der Raspberry Pi 4 mit seinem H264 Hardware-Encoder schafft es, einen 1280x720p 60 fps Stream aus dem Signal des per USB3 angeschlossenen Cam Link zu generieren. Die perfekte Streaming Maschine für Twitch für unter 200 EUR!Read more

    I was excited to get this, hooking my new DSLR up to the computer. I connected it, i saw it, but it kept freezing after a few seconds to minute. I read up on the issue, it was something to do with USB 3.0 not having enough bandwidth or something. I moved it to other ports, worked longer, but still froze up. I used a powered USB 3.0 Hub, same issues. With more research, i found out you need a PCIe Card that gives you a USB 3.0 to use it. This was not mentioned in the product site etc. I find this ridiculous that i need a special card to use this on my computer, which is not a low end PC at all. I ended up connecting my DSLR to a Internal Capture card instead. I will keep the product to test on my Ultra Gaming PC and see if the same issue is there. There was no other issue with this product and i just want this review to be a warning to anyone looking to buy this product, to have an internal or external card you can use, or to buy the PCIe USB 3.0 card to go in your computer.Read more

    Ich hatte mich auf den Camlink gefreut, weil ich im Rahmen dessen eine Go Pro 7 Black anschließen wollte. Das Bild der Gopro ist gegenüber diesen USB Webcams um längen voraus und wollte so ein gutes Bild für den Stream anbieten. Doch es kam anders. Die Verzögerung der Go pro an dem Camlink war so hoch, das zwischen der Bewegung und dem Bild, was man dann z.b. bei OBS gesehen hatte, um 2 Sekunden verzögert war. Völlig unbrauchbar. Ich habe auch keine Software zum Camlink gefunden (gibt es überhaupt welche?), um diesen eventuell anzupassen und somit ist für mich das Thema durch, eine Go Pro oder einen Camcorder als Webcam nutzen zu können. Schade eigentlich, denn die Idee dahinter war sehr gut.Read more

    È un prodotto fantastico. Risolve grattacapi nello streaming in un modo unico al mondo, per giunta economicissimo. Come ho spiegato nel video di prova, l’installazione è praticamente immediata e l’utilizzo lo è anche di più. Con Fujifilm X-T3 mi è bastato collegare il microfono ed è tutto partito facilmente. Attenzione sempre alla qualità del cavo: un cavo economico può compromettere un buon sistema di streaming. L’utilizzo è praticamente immediato e converte qualsiasi dispositivo capace di mandare segnali video su HDMI in un dispositivo di streaming. Praticamente i campi di applicazione sono infiniti, è una possibilità eccezionale.Read more

If that’s not enough, it freezes now in OBS. Checked the hdmi out put from my canon, it works fine. It’s a shame, when it worked, the 5DIV was perfect, with good glass. For now though, Logitech C922. Works all day every day. I don’t have room in my build for a capture card unfortunately (ITX build in a Dan A4 case).Read more

    Der Cam Link ist einfach Klasse. Unter Linux und Windows läuft das Ding ohne jegliche zusätzliche Treiberinstallation in 2 Minuten und gibt sich als Webcam aus. Der Raspberry Pi 4 mit seinem H264 Hardware-Encoder schafft es, einen 1280x720p 60 fps Stream aus dem Signal des per USB3 angeschlossenen Cam Link zu generieren. Die perfekte Streaming Maschine für Twitch für unter 200 EUR!Read more

    I was excited to get this, hooking my new DSLR up to the computer. I connected it, i saw it, but it kept freezing after a few seconds to minute. I read up on the issue, it was something to do with USB 3.0 not having enough bandwidth or something. I moved it to other ports, worked longer, but still froze up. I used a powered USB 3.0 Hub, same issues. With more research, i found out you need a PCIe Card that gives you a USB 3.0 to use it. This was not mentioned in the product site etc. I find this ridiculous that i need a special card to use this on my computer, which is not a low end PC at all. I ended up connecting my DSLR to a Internal Capture card instead. I will keep the product to test on my Ultra Gaming PC and see if the same issue is there. There was no other issue with this product and i just want this review to be a warning to anyone looking to buy this product, to have an internal or external card you can use, or to buy the PCIe USB 3.0 card to go in your computer.Read more

    Ich hatte mich auf den Camlink gefreut, weil ich im Rahmen dessen eine Go Pro 7 Black anschließen wollte. Das Bild der Gopro ist gegenüber diesen USB Webcams um längen voraus und wollte so ein gutes Bild für den Stream anbieten. Doch es kam anders. Die Verzögerung der Go pro an dem Camlink war so hoch, das zwischen der Bewegung und dem Bild, was man dann z.b. bei OBS gesehen hatte, um 2 Sekunden verzögert war. Völlig unbrauchbar. Ich habe auch keine Software zum Camlink gefunden (gibt es überhaupt welche?), um diesen eventuell anzupassen und somit ist für mich das Thema durch, eine Go Pro oder einen Camcorder als Webcam nutzen zu können. Schade eigentlich, denn die Idee dahinter war sehr gut.Read more

    È un prodotto fantastico. Risolve grattacapi nello streaming in un modo unico al mondo, per giunta economicissimo. Come ho spiegato nel video di prova, l’installazione è praticamente immediata e l’utilizzo lo è anche di più. Con Fujifilm X-T3 mi è bastato collegare il microfono ed è tutto partito facilmente. Attenzione sempre alla qualità del cavo: un cavo economico può compromettere un buon sistema di streaming. L’utilizzo è praticamente immediato e converte qualsiasi dispositivo capace di mandare segnali video su HDMI in un dispositivo di streaming. Praticamente i campi di applicazione sono infiniti, è una possibilità eccezionale.Read more
