SlingStudio compatible camera list

Here's a list of cameras that are compatible with SlingStudio.

There are a range of cameras that are compatible with SlingStudio.

When connected to a SlingStudio unit via an HDMI cable or a SlingStudio CameraLink device, SlingStudio can record audio and video from compatible HDMI or SDI cameras. (SDI cameras require an SDI-to-HDMI adapter.)

Compatible camera devices include DSLRs, camcorders, cinema cameras, drones, and other video sources such as Windows and Mac computers.

Important note: It is not possible to connect a camera to a SlingStudio unit solely with the camera's built-in Wi-Fi connection. You must connect the camera to the SlingStudio unit either directly with an HDMI cable, or via a SlingStudio CameraLink device.

However, you can connect compatible Apple iPhone and iPod touch devices, as well as compatible Android smartphones, directly to the SlingStudio device. Download the free SlingStudio Capture app, available from the Apple App and the Google Play stores, and install it on your device. Then connect your smartphone's Wi-Fi to the SlingStudio hotspot and launch the Capture app. See above for more information.

The two tables below contain these lists:

  • First list: Cameras that Sling Media has tested with SlingStudio. As additional compatible camera models are identified, they will be added to the list.
  • Second list: Cameras that customers report they are successfully using with SlingStudio. Note: This information has not been verified by Sling Media.

Important: While Sling Media has tested and confirmed the data in the table below, camera models and internal software can change at any time. Best advice: Try before you buy! This table is intended to help you sort out the vast number of available cameras, but it is not intended to be a guarantee of performance.

Additional information on compatible devices is available in the links at the bottom of this page.

Sling Media asked customers what cameras they are using successfully with SlingStudio. Some of the cameras mentioned are ones that Sling Media hasn't tested, so they are not listed in the table above.
