The highest video resolution of the LifeCam Studio is 1280 x 720 pixels. That's over three times the video resolution of the most common maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. Across all webcams that are a comparable age to the LifeCam Studio the video resolution ranges from 640 x 480 pixels to 1920 x 1080 pixels.
We compared all the other webcams that have a video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels to this webcam and we think because of it's better review score, the Logitech C920 is also worth considering.
If the video resolution of this Microsoft webcam is not high enough for you then you might want to consider the Brother NW-1000 (£94.52) (1920 x 1080) which is also cheaper.
