Elgato Facecam: New webcam for content creator in test

Manufacturer Elgato expands its lineup for content creators with the Facecam, the first real webcam for content creators, thus completing its range for streamers alongside capture devices, stream decks, microphones and more.

Connect and go

The Elgato Facecam’s packaging reflects the Corsair Gaming subsidiary’s current design language, presenting itself on par with the popular Wave microphones or the Stream Deck, which is popular with content creators.

On the front of the dark blue cardboard box, you’ll find the most important specs of the Facecam, which records in Full HD resolution at a maximum of 60 FPS, and even without any significant delay thanks to the Advanced Image Engine. The manufacturer only packs the most necessary items in the box of the € 199.99 cam: Besides the actual webcam including a cover for the lens, only the USB 3.0 cable and a comprehensive manual are included.

It doesn’t take much more than that, though, because if you connect the cam to a corresponding USB port on your laptop or desktop PC, it’s also ready to use right away thanks to plug-and-play connectivity. However, to get the most out of the functions, it is also recommended to download the in-house Camera Hub software, in which the image can be fine-tuned.
