iPad / iPhone webcam

Every crisis is an opportunity! And now we have a crisis that could be distributed on every corner, so I thought I’d take advantage of that and improve my home equipment and knowledge for video conferencing and video shooting a bit.

Why tackle iPad / iPhone as a webcam?

I’ve never dealt with it much and I just connected with a classic integrated webcam and lately there are a lot of those video calls and the quality is terrible (the webcam on the Macbook 2016 is a complete shit and really a hardware disgrace, no one wants it), so there’s room for improvement for sure 🙂

I found a nice app EpocCam that allows you to use the trampled cameras on iPhone / iPad as a classic webcam in Teams, Zooms, etc. It has several advantages:

  1. Image quality is completely different from integrated webcams.
  2. You can also use an iPhone microphone in the paid version.
  3. You can place the camera wherever you want and come up with a better angle of view.
  4. Possibility to connect by cable or Wi-Fi.
  5. Easy installation. One app on iOS, one app on your computer – that’s all.
  6. Works on both Mac and Windows.
  7. The app is free or you can purchase the PRO version for a one-time $ 20.

I have a paid PRO version, but it can work perfectly with the free version.

If you are solving the same problem, then the application is definitely worth a try.

P.S .: There are definitely a lot of similar apps for Android phones, but I have no personal experience with them.
