Razer Kiyo Pro FHD Webcam

MSRP 200 USDNEX score 79%

Product Overview

Razer Kiyo Pro is a FHD USB webcam with a Adaptive Light Sensor. It is able to record 1080p video at 60fps via its 1/2.8" backside-illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor that delivers strong low-light performance.
The Kiyo Pro also supports HDR 30FPS mode, which significantly extends the dynamic range while adjusting the exposure on-the-fly in post. Its wide-angle lens gives the user three choices of the angle of view: from group video calls to personal video calls to video streaming, the choice of 103°, 90°, and 80° views make the webcam highly versatile.
Beyond video recording, the Kiyo Pro also comes with a clear 16bit 48kHz omnidirectional stereo microphone array.
Razer pairs the Kiyo Pro with a clamp-type mount that can be fitted on top of a monitor or desk. The Kiyo Pro can also be mounted on a tripod.

Reviewers from laptopmag have found the following***:
The Razer Kiyo Pro is an overall good webcam thanks to its 1080p video and HDR. There's no color noise, like you'd find in cheaper webcams, but there's a consistent noisy layer in the shots. The microphone volume can be a little low at times, and there are no settings for the microphone.

Pros
  • Good image quality
  • 4K, HDR and Windows Hello support
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • No 4K or 1080p video
  • No microphone

The Razer Kiyo Pro can record 1080p video at up to 60 frames per second. It has a field of view of 103 degrees, with digitally cropped angles of 90 and 80 degrees. The camera records a sharp, well-exposed picture in full light. The low light footage is some of the best we've seen in any webcam.

The Razer Kiyo Pro is a pre-grade webcam that delivers some seriously strong functionality for both the home office (like me) and also in the game room. It has the ability to flick between Full HD 60fps and Full HD HDR 30fps delivering strong versatility. It also comes with a handy built-in preview function, meaning you can directly see the changes you are making on the fly.

The Razer Kiyo Pro is available from February 23 for $199.99 on the Razer.com store, with plans to go on sale via authorized retailers later in 2021. We can't justify recommending something this expensive to a casual user, but for anyone looking for incredible video quality online that doesn't want to deal with video capture cards, this webcam is an absolute beast.

Pros
  • Incredible video quality
  • HDR (High-definition) recording
  • Compact and lightweight
Cons
  • Loud ambient light
  • No built-in ring light

The Razer Kiyo Pro webcam is designed to be incredibly durable. It has a plastic clip system, which allows you to choose from how you want to mount it. It's significantly larger than the Logitech C920, measuring in at 8.5 x 7 x 4.5 inches. The Razer Synapse software is very intuitive and easy to use.

Pros
  • Impressive 1080p/60 fps video performance

Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following***:
The Razer Kiyo Pro is a solidly built, hefty and modular device that feels pleasant in the hand. It's also the most expensive webcam I've reviewed, and its much-touted HDR and 1080p @ 60 fps recording features will likely only appeal to a specific group of content creators. It also touts a new light sensor that's genuinely impressive and will probably put you at ease if your recording environment is dark.
Find the original article here.
Pros
  • HDR and 1080p @ 60 fps recording
  • Robust build quality
  • Built-in omnidirectional microphone
Cons
  • Razer’s ring light is gone
  • No HDR support
