Image quality. It’s more than just megapixels.
Seeing the smile on your grandson’s face or the glitter off your daughter’s engagement ring is so much better than a phone call. And a webcam can really make these experiences possible, even when you’re separated by thousands of miles. But getting the right webcam is more than just a matter of finding the one with the most megapixels.
The truth about megapixels
A higher-megapixel sensor doesn’t equal high-quality images on its own, so it’s important not to just look at megapixels and forget about the other aspects of the camera.
The right lens
The lens is what captures the light that gets turned into the image by the sensor. If your lens isn’t good, it doesn’t matter how many megapixels you’ve got. A bad lens is going to give you a bad image.
Ready for your close-up? You’re not only going to need a good lens—you’re going to need a good focusing system. A lot of webcams have either a manual focus option or no focusing system at all. If you get too close, you can end up fuzzy.
What about HD webcams?
When it comes to video calls, the maximum resolution is 640-by-480 pixels, otherwise known as VGA resolution. Today, you can’t make an HD video call on any of the free instant-messaging applications.
Power and connections
Most computers sold today have no problem handling a video call. But if your computer is a little bit older or you’re not using a fast connection, you might run into difficulty. To get good clarity and smoothness, your computer needs to meet the minimum requirements to support a video call.
RightLight™ 2 technology. Be seen in a better light.
Just the right light
Video calls make it feel like you’re right in the same room with your family and friends. But if the lighting isn’t right, it might just feel like they’re talking to a shadow or a faceless ghost.
RightLight 2 technology identifies your face in the frame and uses that to determine the light and color settings.
More light, less noise
Low light can be tricky for the average webcam. They generally only use software adjustments to increase the brightness, which means your video might be filled with digital noise that shows up as dark specks or digital garble.
Add a lot of rich color to low light and your typical webcam tends to get confused. All that saturated color adds extra weight to an already dark environment—often resulting in dark, flat images. On top of that, the camera introduces more noise by trying to create contrast where there isn’t much.
