I've got an iPhone and I've got a USB camera. Is there any way to plug the camera into the iPhone and use it as the source camera for Facebook Live or other camera related items?

  • Why? The iPhone's front camera is likely better.

  • The Theta is a full 360 camera.

  • It has a USB port and a HDMI port. Connected to the computer I can do live video over the USB port. Connected to a TV, the HDMI port.

  • You can go to the site of the manufacturer of the camera. If there is a specific cable and a specific software for the iPhone, then you can. Otherwise you can't.

You should plug both your iPhone and camera to your computer. Then you sync the pictures from the camera to your iPhone. I think this is the only way it can work. Good luck!
