Outside of using the built-in webcam on my Surface Pro laptop, it wasn't sufficient for the number of meetings I needed to participate in lately with Covid. So I bought 2 different brands from Amazon (Papalook PA452 [This review] and Amcrest AWC201-B) to try them out on my Dell Desktop, which has more computing power and 2 larger screens. After hooking up both webcams at the same time and trying them out side-by-side, I learned alot... unfortunately neither of these webcams fit my needs, so they'll both be returned and I'll continue my search. Pros of the Papalook PA452: Nicely packaged in a small box, with clear instructions inside. Overall the build quality seems good, it pivots well side-to-side, and it mounted to the top of my thin, widescreen monitor fine. It was extremely easy to install/setup, and Windows 10 plug and play recognized it immediately, allowing me to use it right away in Zoom and Google Hangouts. Plus it shipped/arrived very quickly. Cons: Although the microphone was sensitive and properly picked up all the spoken words, I found it to sound a little muffled/distant (although it was better than then other model). Maybe there's a 3rd party app/driver that could have helped with this, but out of the box, it was just ok. As for image quality, I admit I don't have the best lighting in the room, other than an overhead light built into the fan, so a big concern of mine was if the camera could compensate/color correct. Although this camera was better than the other model, in that it was clearer and adjusted for the yellow tint of the light bulb and brightened the image a little, it still wasn’t what I was hoping for in terms of auto correction. However the biggest issue and deal breaker for me, was the narrow field of view. I couldn’t find this anywhere on the website or box, but in the manual it lists it’s only 58-degrees, and I believe it. Although I don’t need it to see the entire room, this camera zooms in very close, almost like head and shoulder only. And when you turn of the “HD” option it gets even closer. Too close for my taste (the other was 70-degrees which makes a big difference). And as others had said, the On/Off button on the back doesn’t do anything. The only way to turn off the camera is to unplug the USB. And although I knew it didn’t come with a privacy cover, with the design of this camera, the lens sticks out of the body. So there’s no easy way to attach a 3rd party “stick on” cover (like a hinged toilet seat) or a piece of paper. Overall I’d say it’s decent for the money. But given the amount I’ll need to use it, and the type of calls I’ll been involved with for work, looks like I need to buy one of the more expensive models.

The camera produces a sharp and clear image, certainly better than the basic low-cost camera I used before. It is definitely plug-and-play; I have had no difficulties in it functioning (with a Windows 10 operating system). The depth of field is good, and I have not had to fuss at all with the manual focal length adjustment. I had hoped that the viewing angle would be narrower than it is, so the image would be more of the person sitting in front of the camera and less of the surrounding room. I thought based on earlier comments and description that that would be what I was getting. But alas, the viewing angle is rather wide, which should be better for a group of people than for one person sitting at a desk.

I have three of these - one for the home and two for work. They are great. Easy to use. Plug and play. Good price, good quality, good picture. I work for an international firm, and most of my meetings are with 40+ people at a time. My image consistently looks better than most if not all others. The built-in mic works well - crisp and clear with no delay. There was no autofocus, but there was a manual one - you just set it once and forget it. I highly recommend!

It is a nice looking device - however it does not look like the picture. The photo looks like a silver webcam and it is actually shiny metallic black with clear acrylic around it like a frame. Still nice looking and not too big - under 3 wide I think. I wish that the focus was automatic. It was really fuzzy and poor quality until I looked through the manual and saw that I could manually focus the camera. I worked perfect. The image is a bit bright - wish I could change that or saturation. I will be using the webcam for Zoom or Skype meetings so I would want the ability to tweak the brightness or saturation on the virtual meeting platform. I have Windows 10 and just plugged in the USB cable and Windows 10 automatically installed the drivers. No problem with that! The manual says that if you have Windows XP/Vista/7/8 you will need to download the software. It does not come with that software (built in or a mini disk) but the manual includes an URL to get the software. I wish manufacturers would give us buyers more choices that black hardware. I really wanted a white webcam with a white USB cord... Because I thought I was buying a pure silver webcam and it is obviously black, I am taking away two stars. I don't think the image is spectacular. I have a Logitech C610 from 2011 that the image looks the same. (I gave my daughter the Logitech for working from home when her work had all workers work from home)

My former camera, if you can call it that, is the camera/video recorder that's built in to my laptop. It's like 20ppi and my image when looking at myself is grainy, fuzzy, faded. In other words, I never looked better. So I installed this camera (the one I'm reviewing, duh). I did not like what I saw. I have this thing hanging from my chin that I never saw before (my wife said it's my "wattle" and that it's been there for several years now). I saw wrinkles. I saw gray hair. I saw my pores, for crying out loud! So, is the quality of the picture from this camera good? Yes, it is very good. But be forewarned -- you may see things on your face you've never seen before, and never wanted to see before. Oh, and it's very easy to set up -- plug in the USB and you're in business. It took longer to get the darned thing out of the Amazon box than it did to get it up and running, which was great, because it gave me extra time to trim my nose hairs.
