ElGato FaceCam Mac Compatible Web Camera

El Gato HD Web Camera For MacOS
The Apple compatible FaceCam from ElGato is a new entry into the MacOS web camera market. Competing at the high end with other cameras like the Logitech Creator Camera and others in the $100+ price range, it strives to deliver a premium image.

ElGato FaceCam For MacOS

1080p Optical Glass Lens


Perhaps part of it's pricing is the fact it uses a very high-quality CMOS Sony STARVIS sensor for a highly detailed image through its optical quality glass lens. The ElGato Face Cam also has a standard 1/4" tripod camera mount hole which is a nice touch. Surprisingly, it has a Fixed-Focus lens, which is somewhat unusual since most high-end webcams usually have autofocus functions.

As a 1080p 60FPS HD web camera in this price range, it's surprising El Gato's Face Cam lacks a built-in microphone which most but not all MacOS friendly webcams include as standard. If you're a video podcaster or live streamer who already has a separate, dedicated USB or XLR microphone for broadcasts, this might be a good camera option..
