Obsbot Tiny 2 Review

It's newer, and it is certainly tinier but is the Obsbot Tiny 2 a good enough 4K tracking webcam given the competition?

Digital Camera World Verdict

The Obsbot Tiny 2 has come close to mastering AI subject tracking, and can even extend that art to hands or whiteboard wands.

Obsbot's first AI webcam, the 'Tiny' was called that in comparison to the 'Tail,' a camera designed for streamers which was the company's debut product. As such it didn't actually need to be that compact; it easily fitted in one hand, and was a good bit smaller than the Tail, but it didn't look entirely comfortable balanced on a monitor.

That was easily forgiven, though, because, as we noted in our review, it – and the Tiny 4K that followed it – did an excellent job of keeping a subject in frame, offering much of the functionality of the Tail in an even more portable context.
