If you're interested in learning more about OBS Studio and what it can do, here is a OBS Studio Learning Course by EposVox: OBS Studio Master Class Firmware updating is generally not needed anymore for any currently sold Elgatodevice. They usually already have the latest firmware. For me as a journalist, the ability to bring a device with me, and record footage, all without having a need for a bulky computer, capture combo seems like a dream come true. Even beyond behind closed door sessions, the possibilities for an external capture card that records right onto an SD card at 4K are endless.If you insert an unformatted card, the status LED on Elgato Game Capture 4K60 S+ will blink the general error code. However, if during a recording there is minimal motion, the bitrate will be dynamically reduced. This number should not exceed the write speed of the SD card used, otherwise recording will fail. The value is in bits. The result is that the image in OBS Studio will look different than how it will look on on the HDR display you have connected to the passthrough. But this is normal behavior.

The Elgato Game Capture 4K60 S+ is for content creators who want to upgrade their channels in a big way. For starters, it can capture 4K HDR gameplay directly to your PC or SD card. Yep, this is Elgato's first capture card to use stand-alone recording via an SD card, which is a massive plus for console games and a long-awaited feature from veteran Elgato users. While the 4K60 Pro does something similar in terms of what it can capture, the S+'s extra portability is what you should care about. The fact that this is the only Elgato capture device that can be powered in a standalone configuration is a big boost for people making content on PC potentially since game capture can often impede performance on some levels of PC hardware. Being able to offload that encoding to a separate device is a useful option, and well worth exploring. If you're a business or game studio looking to get rid of those incredibly expensive Atomos monitor capture devices, the Elgato 4K60S+ is your new best-in-class option. If you're a content creator who is frequently on the road, who doesn't want to rely on the capture solutions provided by an event, this is also an ideal option. This USB-C port sends the captured video to your computer via USB 3.x. The USB captured video preview has a latency of around 250 milliseconds (ms).
The bit rate at which videos are recorded can be configured on the SD Card. Learn more about configuring standalone recordings here. DO NOT update firmware for any products at any time, unless Elgato Technical Support tells you to do so for specific troubleshooting purposes. Ignoring this can potentially permanently damage your device.
