With a pandemic that has created an intense demand for high-end webcams, Razer is adding a new product to its line of streaming peripherals. The Kiyo Pro is a 2.1 megapixel camera that can capture 1080p images at up to 60 frames per second or up to 30 frames per second if you enable an optional HDR mode. With the company’s Synapse software, you can adjust the field of view between 103, 90 and 80 degrees to roughly capture the background. It also comes with an included privacy cover and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
What’s missing from the Kiyo Pro is the one feature that made it stand out: a built-in light ring. However, Razer says the larger 1 / 2.8-inch IMX327 sensor in Sony’s Pro model is better equipped to deal with less than ideal lighting. At $ 200, the Kiyo Pro is also $ 100 more expensive than its predecessor. That’s a steep price to pay for a device that lacks features like 4K video capture and Windows Hello support, but as is often the case with Razer products, you’re paying a premium for the company’s design sensitivity.
