The best in the dark is anything that can make an ambiance clearly seen. New camera technologies are learning algorithms that will make them see in the dark, and so is Razer’s Latest Kiyo Pro Webcam because it uses surveillance camera tech to improve lighting.
Razer’s option will make webcams all the more important in 2021 because it is geared toward people who are streamers and work remotely. Kiyo Pro, which is not that expensive, is an upgrade of the company’s Kiyo webcam, which means that features are now better in some respects. This is why the latest edition gets the ‘Pro’ in the name.
The latest product has no built-in ring light that we know Kiyo for. Instead, the Pro version comes with adaptive light sensor technology that the company claims cancels the need for direct light to brighten up one’s face during video calls.
The image sensor, a Sony IMX327 CMOS with Starvis Technology makes things happen in this new device. Security and surveillance cameras are now having this technology for the purpose of making extreme low-light ambiance seen by the eyes. This really benefits everyone, because, at night, the lights may not fully reach everywhere.
Comparing Kiyo Pro with competing products shows that this product is the best for now. It gives a more nuanced and balanced picture rather than blowing out whites.
Reps from Razer also comment that the webcam gives more accurate and lifelike colors such that it serves better when compared with other products like it. For Kiyo Pro, the lighting is adjustable, so one can save profiles and select different presets.
Kiyo Pro shoots 1080p at 60 frames per second, compared to the 30 fps of the previous Kiyo. Another webcam that can be compared to the Kiyo Pro is the Logitech StreamCam. It matches Kiyo Pro in resolution and frame rate.
