At this point in our WFH routine, we’re well-acquainted with the various pitfalls of video conferences (chief amongst them being virtual appearance). Whether it’s because of an unflattering fisheye effect, some distracting background chatter, or even just improper lighting conditions, many of us opt to leave our camera off and our mic muted to save face.

But that was before Opal. With the launch of the C1, you can now upgrade your Mac’s video by way of a pro-quality 4k webcam. Fitted with a six-element ƒ1.8 lens, it lets in 2.4x more light than any other option on the market. What’s more, it features a 7.8mm 4k Sony sensor, an addition that allows for brighter brights, darker darks, and 2.4x the resolution of a factory-fitted webcam. Of course, better video alone isn’t enough, so Opal’s also given the C1 an array of beamforming microphones and an intelligent Trillium Chip. In practice, such a combination filters out the surrounding noise and hones in on your voice to deliver crisp, clear audio. Housed in a sleek machined aluminum body, it even comes with its own app for fine-tuning your image. You can buy the C1 now for $300 at the link below.

Purchase: $300
