LifeCam Studio brings 1080p to Microsoft webcams

updated 03:45 pm EDT, Mon September 13, 2010

Microsoft LifeCam Studio arrives with full HD

Microsoft today aimed for the crown in webcams today by launching the LifeCam Studio. The clip-on camera is Microsoft's first to have a native 1080p sensor and uses a glass lens with autofocus to provide a much truer to life picture. The barrel-shaped unit also has a better-than-average microphone and shoots stills at a high 2304x1728.

From the start, the Studio has a mount for notebooks and flat-panel displays and also has a tripod mount for a horizontal surface. Microsoft officially supports the camera for Windows, although it's believed it should work with Mac OS X on at least a basic level.

Best Buy's online store is already carrying the new LifeCam for $100, and its retail side should have the device in store by October.
