Poor Video quality, returned - Update
Reviewed in India on 23 June 2020
*Edit: Update on seller response: As I posted this review, I got a call from the seller Case-U, the person was very polite and expressed regret over the Webcam not living up to the expectation. He assured the Webcam does have Autoficus feature, and maybe my piece was defective and offered to send a replacement. As per his advise, I returned the item through Amazon, however in Amazon, there was no option to ask for a replacement, but only to claim refund. Assuming the specific piece I received was indeed defective and the foucs issue will be solved, I am raising my review to 3 Stars. It was certainly good to see the supplier CaseU reaching out proactively to help a customer *
The webcam of my otherwise stellar new Asus Laptop is terrible when it comes to picture quality. I bought the Case U 1080P webcam to addrerss the issue, but am disappointed to say the least. The overall webcam build quality is decent, packaging was good ( though generic Chinese product with no brand markings on the box oe webcam). Plug and Play with Windows 10, no issues there. However, the picture / video quality is very poor.
1) Focus issues - There is no Autofocus ( or Autofocus does not work in the piece I got) - Picture is blurry, especially at the normal distance where your face will be with respect to the camera for a video call.
2) Colours look blotched and far from real.
3) Low dynamic range, blocky artifacts
2) Fish eye effect (barrel distortion) around the edges of the picture.
