MixUp buying guides: camera

You can buy different types of cameras for the MixUp App.

You can use many different cameras in MixUp App. Currently supported cameras are Canon DSLR, GoPro (7,8,10,11,12 models), GoPro MAX, Garmin Virb360, and web cameras. You can also connect almost any camera through a video capture device and it will work as a web camera.

Canon EOS DSLR cameras:

Technically any Canon EOS camera will work with MixUp App.

These are the cameras that we recommend for the price\ quality. They have good picture quality, fast autofocus and work well with video:

  • Canon EOS M50 (USB micro cable)
  • Canon EOS M50 mark2 (USB micro cable)
  • Canon EOS R100 (Type-C cable)

If you're looking for a photo-only solution, you can take a look at these options, but we recommend switching off autofocus on them:

  • Canon 1300D (USB mini cable)
  • Canon 2000D (USB mini cable)

One more important thing:
Don't forget that the camera may also require a dummy battery for non-stop operation. If you're using software in a Mixup booth - we recommend looking for one with a Type-C power connector. The new Mixup photobooths have Type-C charging ports, you won't have to plug in an extra power adapter.

You'll also need a USB cable to connect your camera to your tablet. It's different on all cameras. In our list, we've listed which cables you'll need to connect. For other camera models, see what connector is used in your camera's documentation.

GoPro Supported cameras:

  • Gopro 7,8 Black (Wi-Fi connection only)
  • GoPro MAX (Wi-Fi connection only)
  • GoPro 10,11,12 Black (Wi-Fi & USB connection)

We recommend using GoPro 10,11,12 Black cameras for 360 booth setup
Use GoPro MAX for "Little Planet booth" setup

Garmin supported cameras:

  • Garmin Virb360

Use Garmin Virb360 to work with "Little Planet booth" setup

Web cameras:
We recommend using Logitec BRIO as a web camera. It is probably the best option to use. It provides good picture quality and stable streaming speed also has fast autofocus.

Here is a list of web cameras that we can recommend for price\ quality:

  • Logitech C920
  • Logitec BRIO
  • Logitech StreamCam
  • Elgato Facecam Pro

Video capture devices:
Not the most convenient, but sometimes necessary way to work with cameras is to use a video capture device. Here is a list of devices that may be suitable:

  • Elgato Game Capture HD60 S
  • AVerMedia Live Gamer Extreme
  • AVerMedia Live Gamer Extreme Extreme 2
  • AVerMedia ExtremeCap UVC
  • AVerMedia Live Gamer Ultra GC553
