One-minute review

Webcams rose to prominence again over the course of the pandemic, but the issue with the market remained; after a point, the majority of webcams are pretty similar.

Enter Obsbot, a new name in the industry that’s offering a decidedly unique line of webcams, combining the power of new technologies such as AI with videography. Filling the gap in the market between general consumer webcams and professional conferencing gear, the Obsbot Tiny 4K is the smaller, 4K edition of the company’s flagship product, the Obsbot Tail, and crams much of the same technology of the latter into a smaller package. 

Tiny is in the name, and it’s certainly the game – although this model isn’t quite as diminutive as some of the best webcams on the market. Standing at 3.5-inches / 89.4mm tall (5.5-inches / 142mm with mount), the Obsbot has a 2-axis PTZ gimbal that allows for motorized tracking and 150-degree range of rotation, 45 degrees horizontal adjustment at 120 degrees per second.

In terms of quality, the Obsbot Tiny 4K has a lot to offer. Its dynamic range is great, and its face-prioritizing auto-exposure adds a lot of finesse to the resulting video. However, you’ll be best-served in a well-lit environment, as we’ve come to expect from most webcams, because the Tiny 4K didn’t perform so well in dimmer settings.
