Razer's New Webcam Is A Streamer's Dream - Built-In Professional Lighting

Razer

Let's Plays and Twitch streams continue to grow in popularity which makes a lot of gamer hopefuls on the look out for epic gear to make their set ups as impressive as possible. Razer, a very well-established gaming peripheral company, has just debuted their new webcam at this year's TwitchCon and the Kiyo looks absolutely stunning.

Any public figure will tell you that good lightening is incredibly important. Because of this, many often seek out recommended light sources; some of which for the more professional setups can cost hundreds of dollars. That's not even including the camera, just lighting alone. To combat this and keep the Razer name alive, the company has created a two in one peripheral that combines a professional light ring with a high-grade camera.

Logitech currently rules the streaming market as a coveted webcam, but the specs and accessibility of this rivals that of the competition. The price point is standard for those that look for a decent camera, set at $99.99. UPDATE: The camera is available to order on Amazon. Interested? Check out the official specs below:
