A shift to remote work has laid bare the shortcomings of built-in webcams, so much so that many workers have resorted to using powerful mirrorless cameras as a pricey but far preferable stand-in. The Opal C1 provides a happy medium. It's built around a 7.8mm Sony sensor, an f/1.8 glass lens, and an array of beamforming microphones. Linked to a powerful neural processing chip and Intel-made VPU, it offers professional-looking video that performs well even in low-light, 4K video capture, and intelligent noise cancellation. All the tech is packed into a sleek anodized aluminum housing that comes in white or black and works hand-in-hand with the company's dedicated Mac app.
