  2. The Sweet & Savory Classroom says

    I am setting up a livestream studio doing cooking classes. There will be people in the room cooking with me as well as on live stream. I need a camera that can be mounted 10-15 away from me and still get a good shot. It has to be so far away so as to not obstruct the view from the in-person participants. Would the sony 5100 with a certain lense do the trick? Also need a camera that can use a remote control.
