Where are the differences?
Let's take a closer look at the differences between the two webcams Brio* and Brio 500* from Logitech. The newer model of the two is the Logitech Brio 500. The device is from the year 2022. The year of release of the Logitech Brio is 2017.
Which webcam has the higher resolution?
The resolution is one of the most important factors for a webcam and therefore elementary for the purchase decision. The two webcams Logitech Brio and Logitech Brio 500 do not differ at this point. Both provide a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 px (4K). The resolution and frame rate factors are often also a reason why an external webcam is worthwhile. With most built-in webcams in notebooks, the resolution and frame rate is quite low.
Which webcam gives the better frame rate?
This brings us to the next important factor: the frame rate, or fps (frames per second). This specification describes how many frames per second can be recorded and played back. The higher the value, the smoother the picture runs.
The maximum framerate of the two webcams is 60 fps.
However, the frame rate often varies depending on the resolution. Some devices have a higher framerate at a lower resolution. This is also the case here. At the top of the table you can find the resolutions with the corresponding framerate.
If a resolution of 1080p is chosen, the framerate of the two webcams will differ. In comparison, the Logitech Brio* offers more here. It has a frame rate of 60 fps. The Logitech Brio 500 has a frame rate of 30 fps.
There is a difference in 720p resolution. The Logitech Brio* offers 90 fps at this resolution. Thus, the webcam performs better in comparison than the Logitech Brio 500 with a frame rate of 60 fps.
Field of view
The larger the field of view, the more of the environment a webcam can capture. However, a larger field of view is not necessarily better, as it can also capture more privacy. The Logitech Brio and Logitech Brio 500 do not differ in the maximum value here. Both have a maximum visual range of 90 °. The viewing range can be adjusted on both webcams. This provides more flexibility for recording or privacy.
Is there a microphone installed?
With most webcams, there is an integrated microphone. For streaming or when no headset is available, this is beneficial. Both the Logitech Brio and the Logitech Brio 500 offer an integrated microphone. In both cases, it is an recording.
Is there a tripod?
Both webcams offer the possibility to attach a tripod. However, not every package includes this. A tripod is interesting if the webcam cannot be attached directly to the screen or notebook. A tripod is also interesting for live streams.
