A dedicated webcam

In today’s world, audio and video communication via the internet is omnipresent. Be it for web conferences, training courses, live streaming or multi-client team meetings, it makes sense to use a dedicated camera for capturing and transmitting video - and the most obvious and lightweight choice with which to do so is the webcam. The Swissonic Webcam 2 Full-HD AF is a simple plug&play camera which requires hardly any installation, and can work at high resolutions straight out of the box. It is connected and powered via USB. A handy USB-C adaptor is included so that the most recent apparatus can be hooked up - including smartphones, via a dedicated application.

Flexible alignment

The Swissonic Webcam 2 Full-HD has a resolution of 1920x1080 and transmits at 30 frames per second. It includes an integrated stereo microphone good enough to ensure clear sound transmission during web conferences for example. The lens has a standard range which is roughly equivalent to a focal length of 38mm on a full-frame camera. It is also auto-focus. The provided camera holder allows the webcam to be easily fixed either onto a monitor, a regular threaded camera tripod, or simply placed on a table. A protective cover which pulls down in front of the lens allows the camera to be kept safe from damage at all times during transport. It can also help avoid unintentionally transferring images if, unbeknownst to the user, the camera is active. A 1.35m long USB cable is also supplied, a good compromise between length and transportability.

For internet telephony and web conferencing

Webcams such as the Swissonic Webcam 2 are suited to pretty much any form of audio and visual communication via the internet, such as work-related web meetings or for anyone wishing to talk to their family on the phone via Skype while being live on video at the same time. They will also benefit streamers wishing to include a video of themselves alongside their on-screen content. Set-up and operation, especially with the auto-focus function, is simple. The Swissonic Webcam 2 can be easily operated on a multitude of platforms and systems by beginners who have little to no camera knowledge. Due to the slightly narrower angle of the image, little background is shown during transmission. Those feeling uncomfortable with webcam lenses that cannot be properly shut off will certainly appreciate the cover included with this model.

About Swissonic

Launched in 1998, Swissonic is an in-house brand operated by Thomann. Swissonic's range of electronic and digital devices are built to precise specifications by well-known manufacturers and are thus available at very favourable prices via direct marketing without distributors. Swissonic mainly focuses on devices for use in conjunction with a computer. The product range therefore includes interfaces, webcams, monitoring speakers, MIDI keyboards, and routers but also sound converters and rack-mounted electronic equipment. Swissonic thus provides an extensive wide range of affordable equipment for computer and home studio-based sound processing.

Conforms to the latest quality standards

The quality of digital cameras in general has greatly improved in recent years, and webcams are no exception. So it is no surprise that certain webcams, including this model from Swissonic, are Full HD capable. This makes for clear and detailed images, ideal for modern web conferences and internet telephony – while showing little background in the process. In keeping with the latest video standards, the picture quality is excellent and surpasses not only that of most integrated laptop webcams, but also that of many smartphone cameras. The flexible mounting options, whether the tripod or the monitor clamp, allow the camera to be optimally positioned thanks to the included swivel and pivot joints. Add all these benefits, particularly the lens cover and auto-focus function, to an attractive pricing point – and it could make perfect sense to upgrade from an older webcam.

Good camera for price
Brianfmt, 15.01.2021
Very happy with the camera so far, bought it, upon delivery took it out of the box, plugged in the usb cable & used it for zoom.
First web cam so no prior experience to compare it with any others. Only used it for video conferencing so far, the video on screen looks good better than using my phone camera for conferencing anyway and I quite like the autofocus.

The camera sits simply on top of the monitor, there's a small piece that hooks over the front of the screen (approx 9mm H x 47mm W) with a folding suport leg down the back. The camera sits quite still & hasn't fallen off once. The support leg on the back can also fold back under the camera allowing it to sit on a flat surface if required. The centre of the camera lens is 30mm higher than the top of the monitor when in place, this isn't a problem as there is a swivel unit allowing the camera to be focused above and below the horizontal and also turned left and right. The 60 degree field of view allows easily 2 people to sit side by side at a normal typing distance from the screen, haven't tried 3 people.

The cable remains attached to the camera when unplugged. Initially I thought whoa that cable's too short but at 1.65m as measured it comfortably reaches the base unit on the floor from the desk. There's a blue light on the front of the camera that shows when it's on, there's also a very handy small privacy slider to cover the camera lens and a 1/4" thread too. If there is one fault it's that on this camera the privacy slider covers say about 99.9% of the lens. When the camera is on and the privacy slider closed on one side of the user window there are two very small areas still recording, one at the top and one at the bottom of the user window each one maybe about the same area of say a postage stamp. This means the camera still tries to auto focus a little when the privacy slider is closed. Think maybe just a one-off error (almost imperceptible bend in the slider) rather than a design fault.
Weight of camera & cable: 150gms.

Pro's: Ease of setup, Camera swivel, Auto focus, Indicator light, Privacy cover.
Cons: Privacy cover not quite totally perfect.

Possible the worst webcam I've ever seen
PeterKeuning, 09.04.2021
I got this webcam hoping that it be at least a bit better than the build in webcam of my Dell desktop screen. This is however very much not the case though, since it completely oversaturates if you have anything more than a candle for lighting.

It basically has too exposure settings: dark beyond sight and brighter than the surface of the sun. There are no controls for changing stuff like brightness or exposure, because why would there be? Who wouldn't like to look on their webcam to be one huge white blur with eyes?

I know it's available and not that expensive, but you're literally better off having no cam whatsoever. This is absolute and utter garbage and should be treated as such.

Für's Homeschooling spitzenmäßig!
Martin Skandera, 22.02.2021
Ich bin schwer beeindruckt von der Kamera. Die Bildqualität ist wirklich gut und selbst das Mikrofon taugt was.

Ich habe die Kamera für meinen Vater (Lehrer) besorgt, da seine Schüler dem Feedback zufolge echt unzufrieden mit der bisherigen Qualität seiner Übertragungen waren. Nun ist alles spitzenmäßig und alle sind Happy. Die negativen Kommentare zur Qualität des Mikrofons kann ich angesichts des Einsatzzwecks der Kamera nicht nachvollziehen.

Dass hier keine Studiotaugliche, hochauflösende High-End-Aufnahme rauskommt ist ja logisch... es ist ne Kamera! ABER: die Tonqualität ist auch in 2 Metern Abstand besser als die jedes Chinaheadsets von Amazon und das finde ich schon beeindruckend. Wer also Hardware für Videokonferenzen, Homeschooling etc. braucht, aber kein Headset aufsetzen will, sollte hier unbedingt einen Versuch starten.

Richtig gut: man kann die Kamera auf ein Stativ schrauben! Das schaffen die meisten Noname-Chinakracher von Amazon im gleichen Preissegment auch nicht.

Die Einrichtung war ebenfalls kein Problem, das hat selbst mein Dad ohne Probleme hinbekommen. Plug&Play.

Druce, 11.04.2021
Je ne comprends pas toutes ces étoiles dans les évaluations sur le site, qui m'ont fait choisir cette webcam.
Onéreuse pour la qualité de l'image, vraiment pas terrible, je ne visualise pas la Full HD sur mon téléviseur, les couleurs sont ternes.
J'ai un mode miroir par défaut que je n'arrive pas à supprimer.
Bref je suis très déçu par cet achat.
