Gone are the days of settling for grainy integrated laptop webcams, or fiddly USB cameras that balance precariously on top of our razor-thin monitors. Today, entire companies can be run via Slack, friendships are maintained via across-the-world Zoom calls, and careers can be kickstarted by streaming the latest online shooter or gruelling survival game on Twitch or YouTube. To stand out in an ever-increasingly digital world, you need a webcam with the flexibility and clarity to capture you exactly the way you want to be captured.
That's where the OBSBOT Tiny 4K comes in–a diminutive AI-powered webcam whose compact size deceives the wealth of high-tech features contained within. The camera will get a big discount starting on Amazon Prime Day (July 12) so if you like what you're about to hear about it then the good news is that you'll be able to get it for cheaper than ever!
But let's dig under the hood of this little guy. First up: what do we mean by 'AI-powered?' Well, the camera has a built-in tracking system that is not only able to identify people on the screen, but with the help of a 2-axis gimbal can actually follow you as you move around the room, keeping you in the centre of the image at all times. Whether you're walking around your room like an old-school news presenter, or recording a sparring session where you and your partner would constantly be jumping in and out of shot on a regular webcam, the Tiny 4K won't miss a beat.
Another rather mindblowing smart feature is gesture control, whereby the camera tracks your hand movements, and lets you do air gestures to control it. Don't worry, this feature won't require you to learn some arcane sign language; you simply open and close your hand to start and cancel tracking, and use your index finger and thumb to zoom the camera in and out. Simple, yet kind of amazing.
As the name suggests, the camera is capable of 4K capture, as well as HDR, ensuring an image that's as crisp as you could possibly need. The image quality is further enhanced by the 1/2.8" Sony Sensor, so even if you zoom right in on your face (remember the gesture?), then you'll maintain a high level of fidelity.
The technical prowess of the Tiny 4K is matched by its sleek design. It's a lovely, curvy bit of kit, which can stand freely on your desk or be attached to the top of your screen with the accompanying clip. Once you've finished with your YouTube stream, meeting or whatever else you'll be using your camera for, you can simply tilt the lens part so it's facing back onto its own body, giving you the privacy you need–no more need for flappy camera covers or bandaids!
This is a small but serious piece of hardware, which is reflected in its price tag. But that price has never been better than now. Between July 12 and July 17, you can grab the OBSBOT Tiny 4K webcam (and the rest of the OBSBOT product line) at 26% off on Amazon, while other OBSBOT products will go for up to 35% off. In today's age where your presentation on-screen matters more than ever, the Tiny 4K has got your back (as well as your front). Buy the OBSBOT Tiny 4K on Amazon now.
