Here’s a list of popular cameras, tested by Epiphan and the community, with information about Webcaster X2 compatibility, audio inputs and other primary camera specs: http://updates.epiphan.com/downloads/Cameras.xlsx
Together with the community, we’ve tested many cameras that work great with Webcaster X2. But some cameras aren’t compatible. The most common issues we see:
Cameras that output an interlaced signal over HDMI will not work. Webcaster X2 requires a progressive signal (eg: 1080p, 720p). 1080i signals will not work. The fact that a camera records 1080p or 720p does not guarantee that it actually outputs a progressive signal over HDMI. For example, the Canon C100 mki records 1080p but it’s HDMI output is interlaced, so it won’t work (C100 mkii solved this). The Canon C300 mki can record 1080p, but it outputs 1080i over HDMI. You have to change the recording mode to 720p and then it will output 720p over HDMI, which is compatible.
Some cameras don’t actually output live audio over HDMI (eg. Canon Rebel T6i). In these cases it may be possible to bring your audio into Webcaster X2 over USB using an external audio device, but using HDMI audio from your camera is much more ideal.
Some cameras don’t output a clean signal. For example, the menu overlays are present (eg. older DSLRs like Canon 5D mkii)
Some cameras don’t output a live signal at all. They only output HDMI during playback of recorded clips (typical of some older camcorders).
