Microsoft LifeCam Studio HD Webcam Review

Futurelooks
29 November 2010
  • Summary: Priced at anywhere between $99.99 - 139.99 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

Microsoft LifeCam Studio

PC Magazine
22 September 2010
  • 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

Pocket Lint

  • 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

Test Microsoft Lifecam Studio : une webcam 1080p... ou presque

Clubic
10 December 2010
  • Excerpt: A l'heure où nous écrivons ces lignes, la webcam n'est pas encore disponible en France. La Lifecam Studio se situe dans la droite lignée de la Cinema, dont elle conserve la forme cylindrique et la qualité des matériaux utilisés : pas de plastique mais de l'aluminium, moitié gris métallisé, moitié...
  • Pros: Finition impeccable, Peut être fixée à un trépied, Suite logicielle toujours aussi agréable, Image de bonne qualité
  • Cons: Pas de capture 1080p en standard, Framerate limité en HD, Capuchon facile à perdre, Rapport qualité/prix discutable
