Digital Camera World Verdict

The Razer Kiyo Pro is an excellent webcam that looks and feels premium, is easy to use and produces great video quality. But then so it should, given the $200/£200 recommended retail (although thankfully you can find this on sale for almost half this amount). The Kiyo Pro is primarily aimed at gamers and streamers, and for them the 60fps frame rate at Full HD will be ideal, while those who want to look their best in meetings, or just less dynamic live streams, can look their best with HDR and Full HD at a still-respectable 30fps.

The Razer Kiyo Pro succeeds the original Kiyo, and while the new model no longer has its predecessor’s integrated ring light, it offers high-quality video for streamers, content creators and anyone who simply wants to look better in their meetings.

For the latter, who may have been using their integrated laptop webcam for Zoom meetings through the pandemic, the Razer Kiyo Pro can offer a serious visual upgrade, thanks to Full HD at 60 frames per second, optional HDR (at 30fps), a field-of-view of up to 90 degrees, and autofocus.
