Razer’s Kiyo Pro may be pricey for some, but this USB camera with a high-performance Adaptive Light Sensor is for streamers and business users who demand market-leading image fidelity, even in low-light conditions. It accomplishes this with an ultra-sensitive 1/2.8 CMOS sensor using STARVIS technology, which is a back-illuminated pixel technology, used in surveillance cameras to create high quality images from visible and near infrared light regions. This means that all of your video conference calls will have a consistently bright, clear image, even under a wide variety of typical work-from-home lighting conditions. Product page. Product page.
