Sodapoppin is a lifelong video gamer who has mained World of Warcraft (WoW) for the majority of his gaming life. He got into streaming at fourteen, after working and saving up money to buy himself a streaming setup. His hard work paid off, as he is now one of the most famous WoW streamers and YouTubers in the world. Although he has obviously upgraded his setup a lot since those early days, but despite being so big, a lot of Sodapoppin’s gaming setup and streaming equipment mirrors that of smaller streamers.

The number of additional profiles that can be setup go into the tens, so it is unlikely that you will run out of slots. However, these will need to be adjusted from the software, as the mouse itself can only store three profiles at a time to toggle between. The placement of these buttons can be adjusted according to your grip preferences, by using a key to loosen the mouse and then slide them into a more comfortable position.

What Camera Does Sodapoppin Use?
Sodapoppin’s streaming setup includes a Sony Alpha a7SII camera. The Sony Alpha a7SII is a mirrorless digital camera that is designed for beginner IRL photographers rather than streaming.

It also has a built-in five axis image stabilization feature that prevents images from blurring or going out of focus while you are recording. This is aside from all of the additional programable buttons and other recording options that are possible with this camera.
While these are fantastic features, they are not really necessary for streaming unless you are planning on possibly creating a lot of IRL streams, so you might want to consider a far cheaper, dedicated webcam, if you’re planning on starting up a basic stream.
