(Pocket-lint) – Razer has announced the Kiyo X webcam – an update to its entry-level video camera for streamers.
The new model offers Full HD 1080p video capture and streaming at 30 fps, or 720p at 60 frames per second. It is fully customizable in the Razer Synapse software and comes with an autofocus feature.
While there is no built-in LED light, it is compatible with Razer Virtual Ring Light software, which uses your PC monitor to create a light source. This software will be available later in October, while the camera itself is available now, for £ 79.99 / $ 79.99.
It should be noted that, as with other Razer Kiyo cameras, it performs best when connected to a Windows PC. Although it works on a Mac via USB, the Razer Synapse software is not compatible with macOS, so you cannot easily adjust the settings.
