Digital Camera World Verdict

If you’re serious about multi-camera video production, but on a bit of a budget then this is the product for you – because it will work and work well! You have to admire Blackmagic for continuing to offer such a range of products affordable to everyone within a certain price range without scrimping on invaluable specs. Depending on your style of video you can be as creative as you want with a few useful transitions or stick to basic hard cuts. Either way your Youtube or Twitch followers won’t help but notice a massive improvement in your video streams moving from 1 basic webcam mounted on your laptop to this user friendly and super sleek video switcher that’s pretty close to flawless in its price category.
