  1. I have bought a Nikon D3500 (refurbished) this past week. I want to use it as a webcam for video conferences. I discovered your website.
    In a word, help.
    I am an advanced beginner. I did not know that the USB connection had resolution issues, and want to get started with HDMI connections.

    • I am late to the game, but go to Amazon and search for “Cam Nova”. You want to get the capture card that records 1080P @ 60 FPS.

      The card is like 20 bucks. And it even comes with a mini HDMI to HDMI cable. You’ll need that to connect to your PC.

      The “Cam Nova” will appear as a web cam to your apps.
