webcams still suck in 2024

this is supposedly one of the best webcams out there in 2024 and I just returned it because it sucks ass

Seems like they refuse to create decent webcams

this piece of shit costs as much as an entry level smartphone and even the selfie lense of my samsung A22 5G blows it away

what a fricked up world indeed

      Why is that? Thx MX brio webcam comes with a usb-c to usb-c connection cable

      my 4k monitor also works with such a cable

      if the problem was the cable, how come my monitor works?

        Your monitor has a chip for receiving displayport in over USB. Does your computer have that? No, it doesn't.

    Capatalism fails for high end electronics as the barrier to entry is so high. There is no incentive to create high quality products, each company is quite content to create garbage and gouge you.

    Smartphones have better cams. You can use your old smartphone as a camera for desktop.

    >webcams BAD
    No shit. They're meant for teleconferencing and being an insufferable eceleb who "needs" to show his dysgenic face in the corner of a video. They're not supposed to match a camcorder or DSLR
    >he actually thinks his phone's camera is better
    >when phone cameras are pinhole lenses with built-in photoshop filters masking the bad image quality

        Photo? Any DSLR from a real brand like Canon will do. Video? Any camcorder from a real brand like Sony and Panasonic will do. Things get real samey but real good when you bump up to spending four digits on a camera, but that's probably outside of the use case here.

          anything else to pay attention to, I googled it and already noticed that there are differences like mirroring or not mirroring

            Miorrorless are newer and will cost more. They're supposed to be better.

      phone cameras ARE better than webcams, by a long shot. but they're still not even close to a dslr/mirrorless

        this thread has made me give up on webcam and just forget about it

        now it sidetracked my mind to the quality of PICTURES i am actually taking with my phone

        are you saying that phone cameras are actually shit compared to cameras?

        maybe then I will buy a camera soon as I am expecting a child soon so I can take some very great pictures

        can you recommend any camera?

          that's a very broad question, pretty sure there are camera threads on here

    You're buying the wrong product. Webcams are for telecommuting shit. If you look at successful streamers and podcasters etc, they use actual cameras not webcams

        dont do em
        the chances that you need video for anything are almost always very slim if you do you can always take a picture of whatever with your phone

    I want shittier webcams. I don't want my coworkers noticing shit on our mandatory videocalls. Can't notice the cum tissues if they're 5 pixels large.

    The current high tech ones are miniaturized with extremely good quality. They are obfuscated and not available to the public - but they are all around you currently.

      I get the idea of FUDposting anon.
      But look up how big the cameras are for your phone. Without bolting on more motherboard, they can be the size of a big pinhole.

    Camera quality isn't limited by sensors, but by lens and processing. You can fix processing on your own, but the lens is the lens, it defines the input before it even reaches the sensor. Better to buy an older mirrorless camera and use that instead

      the shite compression and sensor is the issue here though, it's visible that most just use mjpeg. disabling processing of photos on your phone looks better than it ruining it with sharpening and denoising

    test the camera through your OS and not through zoom or whatever you are using. i believe the program you use downscale image quality
