Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on February 1, 2021
This camera was exactly what we needed for Zoom meetings without spending a fortune. Set up was completely idiot-proof for non-techies. Plug into your computer and it's ready to go. As soon as I started a Zoom meeting, the green light turned on and the video was rolling. If you use a laptop with an integrated camera, you may have to go into the video settings on Zoom and change from "integrated camera" to "usb camera." The lens is more wide-angle than I needed (captures approx. 10' width) which is of no concern to me either way, but if you are not looking to share a lot of your background, this would not be the best.

Word of caution: If you are planning to use the camera for something like teaching a class or leading a blended in-person/Zoom meeting using a white board or viewing screen in the background, I would urge some caution as the items on the wall behind me appear to have a fairly significant degradation in clarity and there is a fair amount of rounding on the edges of the frame.

The attached photos show the camera in stand-by mode, camera on, the clarity of the video on the screen, the camera on with privacy lens-cover closed and the rounding of the edges of the frame (shown in background: straight cement wall corner and straight door frame).
