With the rapid development of network live broadcasting and online video conference, the image quality of video becomes more and more important. Traditional live broadcasting usually uses the front camera of mobile phone and computer, with poor picture quality, touching noise and poor color expression, especially the poor restoration of skin color, which directly affects the personal image of the live broadcast owner. And because there is no adjustment option, it will be difficult to control the exposure. The brightness of the picture flickers. As for the virtual effect, it is even more impossible to have it.
The picture quality of front camera of mobile phone or computer is poor
The relatively advanced methods, such as using the HDMI video capture card, connecting the camera and using the camera as the video signal source, will greatly improve the image quality, but the HDMI video capture card needs to be purchased separately, which is also an expense.
HDMI video capture card needs additional purchase
Today's recommended method is to use Canon's EOS webcam utility live broadcast software to directly connect the camera and computer through USB cable. The effect is the same as that of HDMI acquisition card. However, this method is completely free!
