THE Elgato is a brand that offers several products that help to stream games. Now, the company has launched the Facecam Pro, a 4K resolution webcam capable of shooting at 60 frames per second (fps) and offering manual controls to adjust the image. The problem is that the camera is a hefty price.
The webcam revealed this Wednesday (2) stands out for the possibility of filming in 4K. But unlike other models, the accessory doesn’t just record at 30 fps. On the contrary: it is possible to capture images with 60 fps, being the first on the market to bring this specification, with the help of Sony’s 1/1.8 inch sensor.
Check the list of supported resolutions:
- 2160p at 60 fps;
- 2160p at 30 fps;
- 1080p at 60 fps;
- 1080p at 30 fps;
- 720p at 60 fps;
- 720p at 30 fps.
Facecam Pro has manual controls and autofocus
But its glory does not end there. Facecam Pro even offers manual controls to adjust the image through Camera Hub. According to the manufacturer, this allows you to adjust the capture angle, contrast, saturation, ISO, shutter speed and even white balance before recording.
All this apparatus is stored in the camera’s internal memory. So, you don’t need to adjust the settings when using the device again. The webcam, however, does not have a built-in microphone, just like the conventional Facecam.
The list of Facecam Pro attributes brings together other highlights. This is the case of the lens with a focal length of 21 mm, an aperture of f/2 and eight elements. Additionally, users can use both auto and manual focus when recording, unlike traditional editing, which has fixed focus.
Elgato camera costs $299.99
The problem revolves around the price. Elgato is charging $299.99 for Facecam Pro, around $1,535 in direct conversion. The value surpasses competitors, such as Logitech Brio, which is on sale for about US$ 140 (R$ 715) on Amazon in the United States, for example.
There is no release date for the accessory in Brazil.
