A brand new UltraSharp webcam from Dell has made us all nostalgic about Apple’s iSight camera following today’s release from the company.
Dell announced a new 4K UltraSharp webcam that delivers 4K HDR video, advanced AI framing, face recognition, and more.
Still, we can’t help but notice the design similarities to Apple’s old iSight camera, a 720p giant from 2003 that was connected to your device via Firewire (ask someone older than you).
The new camera from Dell has an 8.3 MP sensor and can record or stream videos in 4K at 30 or 24 FPS, it can also do up to 60 FPS in either 1080p or 720p.
An impressive data sheet automatically makes the UltraSharp one of the best webcams of 2021, competes with devices like the Logitech Brio, which also delivers 4K video.
In the age of remote connections and working online, webcams are more important than ever when it comes to feeling connected, but many Apple devices, such as M1 13-inch MacBook Pro continue to only offer users a 720p webcam. The new M1 iMac offers a pretty significant boost up to 1080p, supported by strong image signal processing powered by Apple silicon and the M1 chip. But if you want to go beyond full HD quality, you have to look outside, which is why Dell’s new UltraSharp camera could well be an excellent premium option for people who rely on a webcam for business conversations, or even for Streamers who could benefit from the UltraSharp’s design, which means it can be mounted on a monitor, saving space in any setup.
