Cinematic LUTs for OBS Studio

Live streaming has become immensely popular over the years. Whether Facebook, YouTube, Periscope, Twitch – there are plenty of options for your online live show. The technical aspect of building a live streaming setup can be intimidating, however, GoPro makes it very easy with its GoPro App. Let me show you how it works.

Just in case you want to have a bit more options and flexibility, you can capture the live feed of your camera’s HDMI out with a inexpensive capture card (Elgato CamLink 4K, BlackMagic UltraStudio MiniRecorder) and use OBS Studio on your PC or Mac.

As you can tell, live streaming isn’t complicated and camera companies like GoPro make it very easy to share your story in the moment with either family, friends, or even a wider audience on YouTube and Facebook.

How To Live Stream with GoPro

While I enjoy shooting with my Sony cameras, the fact that Sony never offered a flip-out screen with their higher-end mirrorless lineup is frustrating. So one either has to live with that, or invest in an on-camera monitor. There are many different external camera monitors available nowadays, in a wide range of features and sizes. Watch my review of the PortKeys LH5 HDR to learn why I love this field monitor so much!

PortKeys LH5 HDR : Best 5-inch On-Camera Monitor For The Sony a7III?

I finally upgraded my GoPro Hero5 Black, which I wasn’t too crazy about. The image and audio quality wasn’t great for a US$400 action camera and the features weren’t that exciting either. The improvements and new features of the GoPro HERO7 Black however won me over again. In this video I am testing the new GoPro HERO7 Black and compare it to the GoPro Hero5 Black – just in case you are still undecided whether you should get one.

How to BEST Setup the SONY a7III for Filmmaking

I bought the Sony a7III and I couldn’t be happier!

The Sony a6500, which I used for the last year, is still a great camera. I will keep it as a back-up camera. However, when it comes to slow-motion and low light, the a6500 isn’t performing as good as I was hoping it would. I was also missing the full-frame look in my photos that I fell in love with back in the days when I was shooting with the Canon 5D.

As a hybrid shooter, the Sony a7III ticks all the boxes. And for US$2000 it is simply the best camera on the market. Watch my review for more details of the camera and how it performs against the Sony a6500.
