Dell has made a 4K webcam that promises DSLR-like image quality

Dell on Tuesday introduced a new high-end 4K webcam which the company claims deliver DSLR-like image quality. The PC giant has designed the UltraSharp webcam to meet the needs of professionals and consumers who are entirely dependent on remote work due to the ongoing global pandemic.

To design its external 4K webcam, Dell says its designers looked at Digital Single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras. The goal was to pack the goodness of professional-level quality into a webcam that captures exceptional video quality in any lighting condition. The UltraSharp webcam uses the 4K Sony Stavis CMOS sensor that captures more light and delivers crystal-clear video.

The webcam itself looks premium. It is made of aluminum and has a smooth textured metallic finish. The device includes a convenient snap cover that protects the lens from scratches. Dell says users can place the webcam on the tripod in front of the monitor or snap it on the magnetic mount — no tools required.
