The webcam i have had for the last 8 years has started playing up with the sound not working, so i was looking at getting a new webcam when i seen that Canon released some beta drivers that let you use a Digital SLR as a webcam. I have a Canon 70D that i dont use very often so after trying that on a tripod it worked great, but it doesnt do sound. I had a look at reviews on different microphones and as i was only using it for conferencing, i went for the Yanmai SF-777. I got a mount for the camera and the microphone so that i could still keep the clean floating look. The camera is powered from a USB adapter so i dont need to keep changing the batteries. Using it on calls is great, the image quality is great with my lens set to 24mm and the sound from the microphone is great and being a condenser microphone i dont get a lot of background noise.
