A guide to choosing your screencasting camera: webcams vs DSLRs

Choosing a camera for your screencasting needs can be quite the task, especially with all of the options out there. Allow me to simplify this process for you. If you’ve made up your mind on never stepping in front of a camera, well, this post might not appeal to you as much. But for those ready to dive in, buckle up as we drive into the world of webcams and DSLRs.

Remember, the goal is not to get distracted. You may already have the perfect camera. Don't fret about having the perfect camera before you start creating content. The beauty of growth is improvement. When you upgrade later, your older screencasts will only highlight the progress you've made. Don't let the camera selection become an obstacle to getting started. What matters the most is the content you create.

Start with what you have and let's make some great screencasts.
