Logitech just launched their new BRIO 4K webcam with HDR and Windows Hello support, and we've got one in to review! As always, we've got a quick unboxing and hands on first, giving you a good look at all the details and samples you need to see before you think about buying one.

The BRIO 4K from Logtech is the first prosumer 4K webcam that's available on the market. It retails for $199, which isn't cheap to say the least, but it does come with a hefty set of specifications that in our opinion makes its price worth it.

  • Mic on it sounds pretty bad.  4K looked very so-so (on a 1440p screen).  The chroma key looked pretty solid for doing it all with software.  I think that might be one of the bigger draws given that a proper green screen can cost $100 or more, takes up lots of room and is a pain to move around depending on how you have it setup.
  • Make it a giveaway
  • I'm very interested in this. When will your full review be available?
  • Logitech BRIO? So, it'll have little wooden trains chugging around on screen during video calls...? Trademark issue coming up; they even capitalized the letters the same way.
  • Oh Zac, you always look good 🙂 but the 4K was impressive too
