This is by far the best webcam you can get in this price range. To find better image quality one needs to spend at least double, but probably even more, and one still would not necessarily get all the features found here.
After using it every day for over a month I find this webcam is absolutely perfect for professional video calls, it's a joy to use every single time.
* low light performance is phenomenal, an order of magnitude compared to the more expensive Logitech C930E which I also own and I used for over a year
* it comes with an excellent app, which works fine on M1 Apple Silicon MacBooks and is updated regularly
* exposure, white balance, sharpness and colour temperature are very good out of the box, but can be further customised in the app
* the anti-flickering function deserves special mention, removing any trace of flickering (which normally is a problem with most LED bulbs)
* the HDR functionality helps somewhat on sunny days, reducing the glow of the windows if they come into the frame
* there is double microphone, which I have not used much, but seems to work adequately in a pinch
* the field of view is ultra-wide, and it's suitable not only for individual use but also for conference rooms; there is an excellent distortion correction, so all the lines in the image are straight despite the very wide angle
* autofocus is fast, accurate and stable, it's the kind of thing that you don't even notice because it's so good
* the killer feature however, the one that wows everyone, is face tracking: this crops the image giving the illusion of a moving camera always keeping your face in an optimal position; to get an idea, it's pretty much identical to Apple's Centre Stage; it has two modes, single person and group; this feature has improved even more after some firmware upgrades, and it's now very responsive and satisfyingly smooth, it's just fun and a pleasure to use; another impressive aspect is that the computation is done on the camera itself, it does not require any driver nor does it use any additional CPU resources: once selected in the app, it doesn't even require the app to remain open (unlike Logitech's customisation features); right now, Sept 2021, to my knowledge the only alternatives on the market are Apple's Centre Stage on the iPads, and the OBSBOT PTZ webcam, but not at this price
In conclusion I must salute Anker's efforts here, both for the hardware but especially the software. I think this represents a turning point for them, they have created something truly unique, which is sure to upgrade video conferencing to a professional level. It definitely shows that they believed in this product and worked hard to make it happen, fully deserving the ubiquitous glowing reviews in the technical news. Well done Anker.
What's great about this web cam is that it works great with Zoom And the AI software produces lovely looking quality video
Excellent webcam. I’m using 2 of them in different positions in a 5 camera zoom situation. Only minor negative is you can’t change the camera settings while it is in use but a minor inconvenience
Anker makes really good products and even though Anker isn't know for webcams, they really done an excellent job with this webcam.
My requirements for the picture quality are rather modest, but I was pleasantly surprised by a truly wide angle and how the camera shows the room in low light. Auto-focus seems decent as well. But have to say, I haven't used the camera much yet.
It worked for me out of the box on by Raspberry Pi in Telegram messenger, I didn't have to install any additional software, and didn't have to give any consent for collection of my personal data as Jay from Canada mentioned in their comments. Not saying Jay was wrong. Their note must be the case when you're going to install some auxiliary Anker software on Windows, of course. However, I'm fine with the basic usage.
