One of Best Buy's deals of the day includes a bundle that combines the Blackout Blue Yeti USB-powered condenser microphone with the Logitech C922 Pro HD webcam together for just $149.99. This combo price saves you about $50 versus buying these items individually. It's technically even more than that if you consider the Blackout Blue Yeti is actually on sale for $99.99 in most places like Amazon and often sells for around $130. The C922 Pro webcam can also be found going for $100 by itself, and it hasn't seen a sale price in a long time. This deal disappears at the end of the day.
The Blue Yeti USB condenser mic is a great way to start recording audio because it's easy to use and comes with a ton of customizable features. The Logitech webcam has had a tough time going on sale recently, but it's also a fantastic option if you just want to get your face out there.
The Blue Yeti is powered by USB so it's easy to just plug in and get it going. It's a condenser mic that includes a tri-capsule array that can record almost any situation. You can choose from multiple patterns (cardioid, bidirectional, omnidirectional, and stereo) that allow you to pick up audio from a specific direction (directly in front of the mic, all around the mic, in front and back of the mic, etc.). The mic also features gain control, a mute button, and zero-latency headphone output.
The mic works with Windows XP and up or Mac OS X 10.4.11 or higher. It requires a minimum of 64MB of RAM, which is a really basic requirement.
The C922 Pro webcam is one of Logitech's best. You can use it to stream your beautiful face in 1080p at 30fps or 720p at 60fps. It has a 78-degree field of view so you can actually capture you and a friend if you want. The camera also comes with HD autofocus and light correction, so it will get the conditions just right and make you look good with little effort. It also has two microphones to help it capture sound, although you won't need that with the Blue Yeti bundled on top of it.
