    Im in th market for a dslr camera, but would like it to be as flexible as possible. Some of my clients wants a live stream, but in my experience usb webcams give bad quality especially in low-light conditions. Is it possible to use dslr's for live streaming? Is it limited to certain manufacturers or models? I was looking at the panasonic gh2 and would use it with resolume.

    I would test MXO2 (Mini) with GH2. I tried with Pentax K-5 HDMI input to MacBook Pro, but I was not really sure if I did it right or K-5 is not suitable for this.
    BTW Sony PS3 eyecam is rather good USB device.
    So are security and old video cams via named MXO2.

    We have a GH2, which seemed to be the best static/wide camera for the money. In live situations it also suffers from the same problems all sub $US3000 cameras have - namely through lack of physical buttons and a counterintuitive GUI that was designed by a robot, for a robot.

    Also although the manual and menus say otherwise, it can't output 720P via HDMI and will only ever output 1080i (which may or may not be an issue).

    Oh thanks @olivepixel - good link!
