I was motivated to find a better Facebook Live video solution for my saltwater reef tank, since video from my smartphone was just not cutting it. One big problem is aquarium lighting and a DSLR with its sophisticated white balance features makes it much easier to dial in authentic colors.  You also have different lens options with a DSLR so certain perspectives such as macro shots are possible. Anyway, I decided to go on a quest to figure out how to use my DSLR, a Canon 5D Mark III, as my live camera for Facebook. I did come across a few different solutions but some did not appeal to me since they required expensive video capture cards as well as pricey live streaming software such as Wirecast, MORE
