Whether you\u2019re recording videos or going live, the Microsoft LifeCam Studio does its best to enhance the experience as much as it possibly can. Is it the best webcam for conference room though? That remains to be seen, but it's TrueColor technology and glass element lens makes a good argument.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Microsoft LifeCam Studio\r\nMaking the best of 720p, without breaking the bank, the Microsoft LifeCam Studio provides superior HD video quality, a high-fidelity mic to boot, and Microsoft\u2019s TrueColor technology.\r\n\r\nType, Lens, Size & Weight\r\nFor sharper image quality, Microsoft fitted the LifeCam Q2F-00013 with a high precision glass element lens, correcting any distortion that may have occurred otherwise. As far as size is concerned, it\u2019s pretty small; it weighs 4.48 oz and has dimensions of 4.48 x 2.36 x 1.77 inches. However, its awkward, rigid shape may make it difficult to fit in your pocket, not so with the Logitech C922X Pro.\r\nResolution & Display\r\nUnfortunately, the Microsoft LifeCam Studio limits itself to 720p during calls, but 1080p for recording\u2014but there\u2019s a silver lining. For starters, its glass element lens improves the overall image quality. At the same time, Microsoft\u2019s TrueColor technology, which is image processing technology that provides better coloring and brightness. In other words: you\u2019re getting an enhanced version of 720p. Or you could have 4K with the Logitech Brio.\r\nTripod & Image Stability\r\nThe Microsoft LifeCam Studio Q2F-00013 has an anchor for holding onto laptops and monitors. It just isn\u2019t very good; it\u2019s too rigid and unbending. Thankfully, it does support tripods.\r\nOptical Zoom, Microphone, Audio & Storage\r\nSadly, zooming isn\u2019t available unless the software you\u2019re using has it; there\u2019s no on-board buttons to press. It also lacks internal storage, which is fairly normal. It\u2019s microphone, on the other hand, is high-fidelity. It\u2019s supposed to be, anyways. Too much echo is picked up, so having soundproof panels is necessary. Or, better yet, pick up a Logitech C925E Webcam.\r\nValue\r\nWhile we applaud the Microsoft LifeCam Studio for making the most of 720p during live video calls, it ultimately isn\u2019t enough to justify the price. In fact, most of it is outperformed by the Logitech C925E Webcam. It has arguably better image quality and a much better microphone. It\u2019s $10 more, but $10 worth spending.\r\nMicrosoft LifeCam Studio Wrap Up\r\nThe Microsoft LifeCam Studio made a valiant effort, but it isn\u2019t quite enough to battle against its competition. To be frank, there\u2019s options out there just as good and for better prices. However, Microsoft\u2019s TrueColor technology does provide an exquisite image; colors look great, as does lighting. If you can pair it with an excellent microphone, we wouldn\u2019t bat an eye.
