Microsoft LifeCam Studio webcam ushers in 1080p sensor era

Microsoft has upped the ante when it comes to webcams, where their LifeCam Studio webcam is the first from the company to deliver sharp high-definition (HD) video with a true 1080p sensor in order to complement Windows Live Messenger 2011, where the latter will offer HD video calling in a 16:9 widescreen format. Hmmm, time to make sure you go for regular facial treatments, otherwise your other half in the long distance relationship would notice your warts and all across a few thousand miles. LifeCam Studio does not only deliver the goods on paper, it also comes in a stunning industrial design as well as boasting a tripod thread which makes it ideal for recording long video captures from different angles. Features include a 360-degree view range and an elongated hood that resembles a high-end camera in order to offer lens protection from stray light, resulting in no more washed-out colors. Expect the LifeCam Studio to retail for $99.95 from later this month onwards, where it will be accompanied by a worldwide three-year limited hardware warranty. Looks like the home video recording scene is going to get all the more interesting, what with crazy frat parties and all. [Press Release]
