We bought this so we could put a camera below our wall mounted tv. The camera works exactly as advertised. Even when we are 12 feet away sitting on our couch. We video conference with family quite regularly and wanted something we could use to Zoom in and out. The zoom is only 2x Digital so we can't really get close-up when sitting on our Sofa but the picture is very clear (1080) and the sound is as good or better than our other Webcam. Having the AI to follow you and zoom on gestures is quite cool. I bought this camera when it was on special during Amazon Prime day so I feel I got my money's worth.
