Microsoft LifeCam Studio
27 February 2013
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. Considering how affordable this webcam is, it's a very impressive product. As a matter of fact, this is the best webcam I've tested so far.
Excerpt: Some of you may have started packing up your stuff for the annual trip to grandma’s house. However, many of you may find yourself away from members of your family during the holidays. How can you feel like you’re there carving the turkey when you’re not physically there?
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. So if you can live without reliable auto-focus, then this camera will offer you better video quality than anything else on the market. And that's what it's all about, really.
Pros: Beautiful picture quality, stylish and compact, great sound
Cons: Somewhat expensive, autofocus is dreadful, plugging into USB hub caused us picture problems
