So, you're finally going to start streaming, huh? With all the Amazon Prime Day deals, now is the time to scoop up some streaming gear without paying full price. Spending a few hundred bucks can complete or upgrade your current livestreaming setup, or at least give you the foundation to finally go live.
From webcams to green screens, Amazon has loads of decent streaming and podcasting gear on sale for Prime Day. Figuring out where to start can be overwhelming considering the sheer number of products to sift through, so I plucked out some of my favorite webcams, mics, and other gear you'll need for a successful stream.
For simplicity, I stuck with the best USB webcams that output at 1080p and are dead easy to connect to your PC. Another thing you'll need is a quality streaming mic. I found some entry-level and prosumer options with stellar sound quality. These are USB devices, too, so you don't have to deal with audio interfaces.
I also tracked down other on-sale products like capture cards and green screens, which aren't crucial for your stream but are what I consider 'nice to haves' for your stream.
Below are some of the best streaming gear deals for Prime Day.
Logitech StreamCam | 1080p | 60fps |
$169.99 $96 at Amazon (save $74)
A great-looking, versatile webcam that's easy to use with features designed for content creators. The only problem is the webcam only connects via USB-C, which is a bummer if you have an older PC.
Razer Kiyo Pro | 1080p |60fps |
$199.99 $101.99 at Amazon (save $58)
This excellent low-light webcam is the lowest price it's been in a while. The auto-focus is a little finicky but super helpful if you stream from a room with poor lighting.
HyperX QuadCast S | 4 Polar patterns |16-bit 48kHz | 20–20,000Hz |
$159.99 $112.99 at Amazon (save $58)
This flashy mic is great for a streamer who wants to add some personality to their desk. The RGB is impressive, making the QuadCast S stand out from other mics. It also sounds good to boot.
Razer Seiren Mini | Cardoid polar pattern |24-bit 96kHz | 70–20,000Hz |
$49.99 $33.24 at Amazon (save $16.75)
This itty bitty microphone is one of my favorite budget mics ever. For less than $50, you can have a great-sounding mic that travels well so long as you don't lose out on some features like a mute button.

Elgato Stream Deck| 15 Keys|
$149.99 $99.99 at Amazon (save $30)
Think of these as mini versions of the switchers you’d see in a live TV control room. At the touch of a button, you can start/end your stream, switch to different cameras, and drop graphics and sound effects into your broadcast.
BOYXCO Gen2 Collapsible Green Screen| 15 Keys|
$47.98 $31.19 at Amazon (save $16.79)
