6 Reasons For for Choosing the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema

4MP Higher Megapixel

The Microsoft LifeCam Cinema has a megapixel of 5MP, but the Logitech C270 is only a 3MP webcam (2MP lower), the Logitech C525 and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 are both only 1MP webcams (4MP lower) and the Razer Kiyo is only a 4MP webcam (1MP lower). More ...

The resolution of the image a webcam records is measured in megapixels. A webcam with a resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels records 1,310,720 pixels or roughly 1.3 megapixels.

A higher number of megapixels means the webcam is able to record finer detail. The resolution of the image is, however, not the only factor which contributes to the overall image and video quality of the webcam.

Zoom Capability

The Microsoft LifeCam Cinema has a zoom capability, and so do the Logitech C270, the Logitech C525 and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000, but the Razer Kiyo does not. More ...

'Zoom Capability' denotes whether the webcam has the ability to zoom in on distant subjects.

A zoom capability makes the webcam more versatile, allowing perfect framing when you use it for video chatting, and allow you to enlarge distant objects on the video.

5 Times the Still Image Resolution

The Microsoft LifeCam Cinema has a still image resolution(s) of 2880 x 1620, which is 5 times the still image resolution of the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 (1280 x 800). We do not know what type of still image resolution(s) the Logitech C270 and the Logitech C525 have. More ...

A higher still image resolution will increase the sharpness of the images the webcam is taking. A Full HD webcam will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

A higher still image resolution will generally result in sharper and higher quality image, although it is not the only factor contributing to the overall image quality of the webcam.

Photo Feature

The Microsoft LifeCam Cinema has a photo feature, and so do the Logitech C270, the Logitech C525 and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000, however the Razer Kiyo does not. More ...

'Photo features' covers a number of different effects and filters that can be added to still photos taken with the webcam.

Photo features allow you to do more with the photos and snapshots from your webcam, and personalise them however you want.

Better Kagoo Score

The Microsoft LifeCam Cinema has received a Kagoo Score of 88, whereas the Logitech C270 scored 87 and the Razer Kiyo scored 82.

Better Digital Versus Review Score

The Microsoft LifeCam Cinema has a review score of 80% from Digital Versus, but the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000's rating was only 60% from the same site.

19 Reasons Against for Choosing the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema

Lower Video Resolution

The Microsoft LifeCam Cinema has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels (as are the Logitech C270, the Logitech C525 and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000), whereas the Razer Kiyo has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. More ...

A higher maximum video resolution will increase the sharpness of the images the webcam is recording. A Full HD webcam will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

A higher maximum video resolution will generally result in sharper and higher quality video, although it is not the only factor contributing to the overall image quality of the webcam.

Not Full HD

The Microsoft LifeCam Cinema is not full HD (As do the the Logitech C270, the Logitech C525 and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000), whereas the Razer Kiyo is. More ...

A Full HD webcam can record video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD indicates that the webcam can record at a fairly high resolution, resulting in a sharper picture.

A Lot Lower Maximum Frame Rate

The Microsoft LifeCam Cinema has a maximum frame rate of 30fps (as do the Logitech C270, the Logitech C525 and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000), whereas the Razer Kiyo is a 60fps maximum frame rate webcam (30fps higher). More ...

The webcam's maximum frame rate is the number of images the webcam can capture and transfer to your computer per second. Frame rates of between 15-60 frames/second are most common.

A higher frame rate will result in a less choppy and smoother video. A frame rate of 15 fps is considered the absolute minimum while a frame rate of 30 fps will result in a natural looking and smooth video.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Microsoft LifeCam Cinema does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Logitech C270, the Logitech C525 and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000), whereas the Razer Kiyo has this feature. More ...

A built-in flash means that the webcam comes with a flash device built in, rather than having to rely on external lighting.

A built-in flash can be very helpful for taking photos in low light conditions using the webcam.

$13 More Expensive

The Microsoft LifeCam Cinema is more expensive than the Logitech C270 by $13, more expensive than the Logitech C525 by $13 and more expensive than the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 by $3.

Fewer Sellers

Only 7 sellers sells the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema, but 10 shops sell the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000. More ...

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Logitech C270

Zoom Capability

The Logitech C270 has a zoom capability (as do the Logitech C525, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000), however the Razer Kiyo does not have this feature. More ...

'Zoom Capability' denotes whether the webcam has the ability to zoom in on distant subjects.

A zoom capability makes the webcam more versatile, allowing perfect framing when you use it for video chatting, and allow you to enlarge distant objects on the video.

Photo Feature

The Logitech C270 has a photo feature (as do the Logitech C525, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000), whereas the Razer Kiyo does not have this feature. More ...

'Photo features' covers a number of different effects and filters that can be added to still photos taken with the webcam.

Photo features allow you to do more with the photos and snapshots from your webcam, and personalise them however you want.

Noise Reduction

The Logitech C270 supports noise reduction, and so does the Logitech C525, however the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema, the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 and the Razer Kiyo do not. More ...

Noise reduction means that the microphone on the webcam is designed to filter out unwanted noise (such as cars, wind noise, background chatter, etc) to make hearing easier.

Cheaper by $10

The Logitech C270 costs $24.98, whereas the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema is $37.99, the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 is $34.95 and the Razer Kiyo is $59.49.

Better Expert Reviews

Based on 5 reviews, the Logitech C270 has an average expert review score of 90%, but the Logitech C525 has an average rating of 83% (based on 5 reviews), the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema has an average rating of 82% (based on 23 reviews), the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 has an average rating of 60% (based on 1 review) and the Razer Kiyo has an average rating of 84% (based on 17 reviews).

Marginally Better Overall Reviews

Based on 594 reviews, the Logitech C270 has an average overall review score of 91%, but the Logitech C525 has an average rating of 86% (based on 494 reviews), the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema has an average rating of 86% (based on 197 reviews), the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 has an average rating of 72% (based on 62 reviews) and the Razer Kiyo has an average rating of 87% (based on 55 reviews).

More Solidly Made

Our analysis of the Logitech C270 reviews indicates that more reviewers thought the Logitech C270 was more solidly made. Over 30 people thought that it was very well-built and several people thought that it was also well made and reliable.

18 Reasons Against for Choosing the Logitech C270

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Pixels Resolution

The Logitech C270 has a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels pixels, and so are the Logitech C525, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000, which is half the video resolution of the Razer Kiyo (1920 x 1080 pixels). More ...

A higher maximum video resolution will increase the sharpness of the images the webcam is recording. A Full HD webcam will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

A higher maximum video resolution will generally result in sharper and higher quality video, although it is not the only factor contributing to the overall image quality of the webcam.

Not Full HD

The Logitech C270 is not full HD (As do the the Logitech C525, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000), but the Razer Kiyo is. More ...

A Full HD webcam can record video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD indicates that the webcam can record at a fairly high resolution, resulting in a sharper picture.

Lower Megapixel

The Logitech C270 is a 3MP webcam. That's 2MP higher than the Logitech C525 and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 (1MP), 2MP lower than the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema (5MP) and 1MP lower than the Razer Kiyo (4MP). More ...

The resolution of the image a webcam records is measured in megapixels. A webcam with a resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels records 1,310,720 pixels or roughly 1.3 megapixels.

A higher number of megapixels means the webcam is able to record finer detail. The resolution of the image is, however, not the only factor which contributes to the overall image and video quality of the webcam.

50% Lower Maximum Frame Rate

The Logitech C270 is a 30fps maximum frame rate webcam, and so do the Logitech C525, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000. That's 30fps lower than the Razer Kiyo (60fps). More ...

The webcam's maximum frame rate is the number of images the webcam can capture and transfer to your computer per second. Frame rates of between 15-60 frames/second are most common.

A higher frame rate will result in a less choppy and smoother video. A frame rate of 15 fps is considered the absolute minimum while a frame rate of 30 fps will result in a natural looking and smooth video.

Does Not Have a Built-in Flash

The Logitech C270 does not have a built-in flash (As do the the Logitech C525, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000), but the Razer Kiyo does. More ...

A built-in flash means that the webcam comes with a flash device built in, rather than having to rely on external lighting.

A built-in flash can be very helpful for taking photos in low light conditions using the webcam.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Logitech C270 has received a Kagoo Score of 87, but the Logitech C525 scored 88, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema scored 88 and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 scored 88.

Not As Many Stockists

The Logitech C270 is only stocked by 7 shops, however the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 is stocked by 10 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this webcam.
Older by Over Two Years

The Logitech C270 is three years older than the Razer Kiyo.

Five Less Awards

The Logitech C270 has only received 1 award, however the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema has received 5 awards and the Razer Kiyo has received 6 awards.

User Review Rating is Worse

The Logitech C270 has an average user score of 89%, but the Logitech C525 has an average user rating of 91% (based on 489 reviews) and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 has an average user rating of 95% (based on 61 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend It

Only 64.2% of 598 customers recommend the Logitech C270, however 85.5% of 62 customers recommend the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000.

A Worse Size

On average reviewers thought the Logitech C270 was a worse size.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Logitech C525

Face Tracking

The Logitech C525 features face tracking, but the Logitech C270, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema, the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 and the Razer Kiyo do not. More ...

A webcam with face tracking will reframe to follow the face of the subject as they move around. This may be done by physical movement (panning and/or tilting the camera) or by digitally cropping and enlarging a portion of the wide angle image.

Face tracking ensures your face will stay in the frame even when you move around.

Zoom Capability

The Logitech C525 has a zoom capability (as do the Logitech C270, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000), but the Razer Kiyo does not have this feature. More ...

'Zoom Capability' denotes whether the webcam has the ability to zoom in on distant subjects.

A zoom capability makes the webcam more versatile, allowing perfect framing when you use it for video chatting, and allow you to enlarge distant objects on the video.

Snapshot Button

The Logitech C525 has a snapshot button, however the Logitech C270, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema, the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 and the Razer Kiyo do not have this feature. More ...

'Snapshot Button' denotes whether the webcam has a special button on the device for taking still photos.

This is helpful because it allows you to use the webcam as an impromptu camera, and you won't have to mess around with external software to take photos using it.

Photo Feature

The Logitech C525 has a photo feature (as do the Logitech C270, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema and the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000), however the Razer Kiyo does not have this feature. More ...

'Photo features' covers a number of different effects and filters that can be added to still photos taken with the webcam.
