List of cameras that play nice with Webcaster X2



We have tested the Zoom Q2 successfully. It required adjusting the EDID settings on Webcaster X2 under Preferences to ensure it’s set to the “progressive only” option. We have not personally tried Q4 or Q8, but we have had a couple of users comment using those cameras so it shouldnt be a problem!



Tested with:
HDMI: Panasonic HC X-1000 4K ? Work perfect.
USB: Logitech C270 = Not working ?? (I use the USB on the same side as the HDMI IN :-))


I have a Panasonic AG-8C, it doesn’t output the streaming video via HDMI so I use a composite A/V to HDMI convertor. I found that with both audio channels hooked up it will not broadcast. Remove one channel of the audio and everything works fine.


Can you tell me which telephoto lens you bought? I have c920 and the clip on the telephoto lens I bought won’t fit over the webcam.


There is a photo of it in the Topic “Scoreboard Overlay”. There are no other identifying marks on the lens other than what is visible in the photo. Sorry, I threw the box away months ago. Bought it at Walmart, Target or Best Buy. Nothing fancy. May have been a clearance item.


Hallo, there is a list on the Elgato Cam Link web site which, I assume, could be applied for Webcaster X2 as well:

I am still looking for the best price / performance for a camera to livestream.

Did somebody try the (hacked) Panasonic Lumix GH2 or any Canon Magic Lantern hacked cameras and can report?

Kind regards



Webcaster X2 only supports Progressive signals from camera sources at 720p or 1080p. The list of cameras on the Elgato cam-link are not necessarily compatible unfortunately. As an example, all of the listed Canon DSLRs are interlaced so they are not natively compatible.


Please can you update the list of camera that X2 support ?. The last updated list I could get is 7/24/18.
I would suggest if it is updated monthly. Thanks
