Microsoft LifeCam Studio 1080p HD Webcam
6 March 2015
Excerpt: In many ways this is a great webcam that matches many aspects of the Logitech C920 in terms of quality. It records HD video with 1080p resolution that can easily be scaled down to 720p if necessary.
Conclusion: The Microsoft LifeCam Studio is a sweet upgrade from a built-in VGA webcam, and good enough for high-definition Internet video chats and even home movies.
Pros: Sharp, crisp images and video recording. Most natural color balance we've seen from a webcam. Built-in TrueColor and automatic light correction works well in less-than-optimal environments. Warm vocal reproduction. Flexible 360-degree mount includes tripod thread.
Cons: Mono mic lacks noise suppression. Video recording maxes out at 720p and 15 frames per second without extra software. Buggy live effects.
Microsoft LifeCam Studio 1080p HD Webcam Video Review
11 August 2011
Summary: The Microsoft LifeCam Studio 1080p HD Webcam offers fantastic quality HD video. This webcam looks amazing, has a flexible base, comes with a great mic, tripod mount, long USB cable and more. It's capable of 1080P, quality autofocus lens and comes with TrueColor and CleanFrame technology.
Summary: Priced at anywhere between
US, the Microsoft LifeCam Studio isn't exactly the least expensive webcam on the market, but it easily outperforms many of the offerings that you find at cheaper price points.
Pros: Full 1080p HD sensor, Flexible rubber mount with tripod thread, Fun software effects, TrueColor brightens up the room
Cons: TrueColor can result in over-exposure, Some effects don't fit perfectly, Audio tends to have an echo in enclosed spaces, Autofocus can be slow at times
Conclusion: It is a little expensive - although for a 1080p webcam, the street price of £50 really isn't bad - and we are very cross about the auto-focus, but as a webcam the quality is unassailable, and it's a nicely designed camera which plays well with every video chat app we used it with.
Pros: Beautiful picture quality, stylish and compact, great sound
Cons: Somewhat expensive, autofocus is dreadful, plugging into USB hub caused us picture problems
