Microsoft LifeCam Studio

 

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...

Mono mic lacks noise suppression. Video recording maxes out at 720p and 15 frames per second without extra software. Buggy live effects.

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.

Microsoft's 1080p LifeCam Studio review

 

Great quality in dim lighting, Very flexible mount, Full manual controls

Limited to 720p in most cases, Far pricier than your average webcam, Mono sound

The Microsoft LifeCam Studio is a high end HD webcam for Windows computers. It is touted as the first webcam with a full 1080p sensor, and has a sleek “industrial” brushed aluminum design. I'm not so sure how necessary a 1080p webcam is, but maybe it...

sleek design reminiscent of the iSight ; high resolution ; mic is not too quiet ; works in Linux

not able to tilt up enough ; Stand is not universal ; Lens Cap is pretty much useless ; background noise is picked up

The Microsoft Studio LifeCam is a good choice if you are looking for a high-end webcam for your laptop. It looks very professional, and not cheap or plastic like most do, has a good feature set, and it works. I would say this is the best performing...

The Microsoft LifeCam Studio comes from a line of the best designed cameras that we reviewed. Microsoft has improved some of the issues with the autofocus in this line, yet it is still not great. The overall quality of this line of webcams combined...

The Microsoft LifeCam Studio has an incredibly flexible design

The autofocus doesn’t work as smoothly as other webcams

For portability and flexibility, the design of the LifeCam Studio couldn't be any better.

Microsoft LifeCam Studio review

 

A 1080p webcam sounds a little ridiculous doesn't it. But of course, webcams aren't just for video calls, they're for recording your thoughts to YouTube, presenting a video podcast or lip-syncing to Carly Rae Jepsen. They are, in fact, cheap camcorders...

Beautiful picture quality, stylish and compact, great sound

Somewhat expensive, autofocus is dreadful, plugging into USB hub caused us picture problems

At first the price looks alarming, but you can get this camera for £65 or less if you look about. We don't like the fact that the autofocus is dreadful, and the minor glitch when using a USB hub is irritating, but forgivable. But the picture quality of...

Microsoft's new webcam has a 1080p sensor and some neat software tricks

It isn’t cheap, but it's simple to operate and image quality is excellent – and it can record 1080p if you have the software

Webcam

The high resolution, tripod socket and quick autofocus make this an ideal webcam for video blogging. If you just want something to use with Skype, this is overkill: you don't need the performance, and the price is too high.

The thing about making gadgets is that you have to keep upgrading them to keep in touch with the latest trends, or everyone regards you as yesterday's news. While 3D is all the rage for movies ...

Microsoft's LifeCam Studio brings the webcam bang up to date, with a Full 1080 HD sensor, excellent autofocus and picture quality, improved (mono) sound, plus the option to mount the camera on a tripod.
