Best Dual Camera Setup For Vlogging


I am building a new studio to film from, and I would like to upgrade my cameras.

Currently, I film with two Cannon T7i Rebels from different angles. The camera that points directly at me has a 18-55 lens, and the one that is positioned to the side of me has a 24mm lens.

I do YouTube video reviews and unboxings, and I also host a weekly live show on YouTube.

I run both of my cameras through an ATEM Mini and use Streamyard as my video source.

The only downfall of the T7i's are that they need to be in manual focus mode to have 100% clean HDMI for use with the ATEM and Streamyard, and that prevents me from showing anything to my audience for them to see clearly.

So, I am looking to replace both cameras to use in the new studio that have clean HDMI.

The cameras will never be taken out of the studio, and the lighting will always be the same.

I'm not sure if this matters or not, but one of the cameras will be pointing at me, and behind me will be a tv that will have my advertisers info cycling through.

Cannon has soooo many options, and I don't even know where to begin.

Any comments or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.



Thanks for the helpful use case.

The sky is not limit, that's for sure!

I have no problem switching glass if that is recommended.

If I could keep it to under 3K that would be great. 4K would be absolutely pushing it. I just couldn't justify going over 4K for a set of cameras that will do nothing else buy record video.


If you wish to stick with an APS-C DSLR, then the 90D provides “Clean HDMI” output.

Hi everyone! I'm new here and was looking for advice on dual camera set-ups for vlogging. I see that the OP already has their own setup with two T7i's and that it looks good.
