If you\u2019ve ever been on the lookout for the best webcam for streaming, then the Razer Kiyo Streaming Camera should be on your radar. With Superb image and video quality and an advanced auto focus you can stream yourself playing video games or hop on a conference call with the clearest of pictures.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Razer Kiyo Webcam\r\nThe Razer Kiyo Webcam is a streaming focused webcam with the ability to take sharp, lucid videos and pictures for up to three years. It also includes its own lighting system, saving you the hassle of buying extra equipment or setting up at an inopportune location simply for the good lighting.\r\n\r\nImage Quality\r\nThe picture quality on the Razer Kiyo is superb and on-par with another high quality webcam, the Logitech C920S Pro HD Webcam. It has a 4MP, 2688x1520 camera that takes brilliantly colored photos along with superb video quality. In brightly-lit spaces this quality is amplified too. In low light situations performance quality tends to suffer, but that\u2019s like all cameras. But in this instance, image quality suffers on slightly!\r\nEase of Use\r\nThe one flaw in the Razer Kiyo Webcam\u2019s design is the 5 foot braided USB 2.0 Cable. Not only is it not detachable, it\u2019s also not as long as some of the competition\u2019s USB cables, such as the Logitech C922X Pro Stream Webcam. Not only does this limit set-up capabilities, it also means you can\u2019t replace the cable if you do need something longer or if it breaks.\r\nBattery Life\r\nThe Razer Kiyo Webcam does require one one Lithium Ion battery to work. It\u2019s hard to estimate the life cycle of this type of battery considering the many factors involved. But generally, they last two to three years or for 300 to 500 cycle charges. Whichever comes first. But by the time it does run out, you\u2019ll probably have more than enough money to buy a new webcam. And considering the timeline of electronics they will have made some great advancements by then.\r\nDurability\r\nThe webcam is basically just an LED light ring stacked on top of an extra two discs. That\u2019s when it\u2019s folded up. Unfolded, the ring light takes center stage to provide excellent lighting for anything from video calls to pictures. It squeezes snuggly to laptops and computers and is just as solid and non-moving as it\u2019s competition, such as the Logitech C930E.\r\nValue\r\nIf there\u2019s another flaw in the Razer Kiyo Webcam, it\u2019s that it has quiet microphone playback, making your video calls that much harder to hear. It does feature advanced auto focus though, and the minimal focal distance for this to work is about two inches (one inch for manual focus). The camera also supports streaming software, with Razer specifically mentioning OBS and XSplit, at 1080P for 30FPS or 720P for 60FPS.\r\nRazer Kiyo Webcam Wrap Up\r\nThe negative aspects of the Razer Kiyo Webcam are annoying, sure. Quiet mic playback might be a turn off if you\u2019re in a Zoom meeting, and the non-detachable USB cable is a little frustrating, but if you can get past these you\u2019ll find that the Razer Kiyo Webcam really is a game changer, or at least a starting game changer, in the world of webcams.
