      Im in the conundrum of beginning my home studio setup, and and feeling the fear that one purchase will lead to another… and then another… and then another. I’d like to get it setup correctly, with expandability and usefulness.

      Here’s my intent: 2-3 camera setup (straight, angle, overhead) webcast livefeeds, recording and editing into youtube posts. Blogging and Vlogging. possible screenshare.
      I don’t game so nothing like that. But my subject matter is health coaching, emotional, mental well-being, coping techniques, etc..
      Videos with PiP, text overlays.
      budget- $500-750 total.

      Now here’s the problem:
      1. Everyone says “I love my Elgato Stream Deck with my USB webcams”
      2. “I love my Atem mini with camcorders, DSLR”
      3. I love my Elgato AND my Atem Mini!!

      I currently have a Logitech Brio 4k, a Nikon DSLR, I’m learning OBS, have both a USB mic and Audio mixer.
      -If I go with the Atem mini- only has HDMI inputs, and I don’t know of any USB-to-HDMI convertors to go with webcams. I can switch, pip, audio control. I will need to 2 addtl camcorders or DSLR (If I go the the Mini Pro, then I can record to SSD). AM I MISSING ANYTHING?

      -If I go with the Elgato, then all inputs should be USB in multi-USB port, correct? they definitely have HDMI-to-USB convertors, and from what I’ve read, the stream desk can do virtually anything with the buttons. I will have to buy 1 additional camera (webcam or camcorder/DLSR). AM I MISSING ANYTHING?

      For what I want to do (which other than biweekly live streams would be live video editing into youtube posts), would anyone have insight, direction, recommendations to stay within my budget?

      thank you,
