The peripheral specialist has announced the launch of a new line of web cameras. They are the Logitech Brio 300, from basic features, cone-shaped, with various color finishes, economical and certified for the main video conferencing platforms and applications.
Logitech is perhaps the world’s largest manufacturer of external web cameras. The COVID pandemic caused an explosion in sales of this type of solution due to the need to increase digital contact and the offer from the Swiss peripherals giant is considered to be the most complete in the consumer market. Many of them start from the old (but fantastic) Logitech C920 that continues to be a reference in the sector.
Logitech Brio 300
The series is marketed in two versions, Brio 300 and Brio 305. They are practically identical, except that the second is focused on the business market. The most striking feature is the design, which change the usual horizontal bar shape to a cone. The camera, privacy shutter and microphones are located at the base and the connection cable exits from the tip of the cone.
The connection is made to a port USB Type-C that has been standardized in all kinds of products. It includes a noise-cancelling microphone and features like automatic light correction and high dynamic contrast. It also includes a privacy shutter and the Logi Tune app used to configure settings and test video quality.
Its features are basic, but sufficient for large consumption. It has a 2-megapixel sensor with a 70-degree field of view (FOV). The camera can record 1080p video at 30 FPS or 720p at 30 FPS. If you want 60 FPS or 4K resolution you will have to opt for higher models. The cameras are partially built with post-consumer recycled plastic in a nod to the increasingly necessary care for the environment.
Logitech Brio 300 is already available on the manufacturer’s website and in the retail channel for an official price of $69. You can choose between white, black and suggestive pink finishes. It is certified for platforms such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom, although it will work with any type of software. In Spain, you can buy it on Amazon for €84.99 with delivery on Saturday, January 21.
It’s not bad, although it must be said that there are alternatives for that price with 1080p/60FPS resolution. If you need to scale to 4K video, you will already have to allocate more budget.
