A small-form-factor HD webcam that values your privacy with its integrated shutter and gives away clear and crisp audio are just some of the many features that the Poly Studio P5 has to offer.

This webcam works for your PC or Mac and it supports multiple video apps such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, GoTo and StarLeaf.

You can also use this for recording your webinars or presentations through its plug and play compatibility. Just clamp it on your monitor and you’re ready to take on those video conference meetings anywhere.

Make Yourself More Presentable With Poly Lens

The Poly Studio P5 also includes the Poly Lens app for Windows and Mac where you can adjust your camera settings such as contrast, brightness and backlight compensation to name a few.

You can also place reminders to hydrate and rest especially for those who are used to working from home and tend to forget to take a break every once in a while. Add soundscapes if you want to reduce work stress and improve your focus when meeting critical deadlines.

Decent Enough To Handle Your Video Calls

The directional built-in mic of the Poly Studio P5 clearly captures your voice and it has good noise cancellation so your calls are free from distractions. You can also pair the webcam with any headset or speakerphone if you want a better video call experience.

If we were to nitpick on this device is that upon checking its spec sheet, it did not mention if the camera can support high frame rates when recording video. So if you’re a streamer with a high-end PC, this camera may not be for you.

But overall, this $129 webcam should be worth picking up with its small physical footprint, wireless audio support features plus 2-year limited warranty. So head on over to Poly and get yourself a nice webcam and say goodbye to those awkward video calls.
