Finding the ideal camera settings for live video is crucial for so many of use who are on video frequently via video conferences or webinars but also for video production professionals on site. Humans are creatures of habit and we are used to 24 frames per second. We are also usually forgiving when a live stream on YouTube has a blip or the Skype call we are on has a few seconds of jittery video.

In this article, we are going to talk about how to use standard photography methods to produce amazing video images. The reason camera settings are so uniquely important in live video is because there is often no chance for post production. If you have ever used YouTube live you know that once you live broadcast is over you video will live on to collect many more views on-demand.
