New Toys: Movo WebMic HD Pro

A computer, an Internet connection and the Movo WebMicHD PRO is all you need to do professional-looking videos, webinar podcasts or Zoom calls. The Movo works standalone on its own included handheld/tabletop desk stand or use its C-clamp to clip it to your computer monitor's screen or the edge of your desk. Either way, you'll have a cardioid condenser microphone aimed at you that rejects sound and noise coming in from behind mic, such as computer and outside street noise. Internal microphones in laptops pick up everything!

The Movo WebMicHD PRO has an HD 1080p camera that captures video at 30 frames/sec; the crisp, clear image was the first thing I jumped up and down over when I first plugged it in. I also like the integrated LED ring light around the camera with its three brightness levels (and off). The ring is not annoyingly big, as other rings, and I had no trouble using the camera with or without it. Biggest plus: you don't have to buy and set up a ring separately.

The computer setup is automatic with the WebMic HD PRO showing up in the Macs Sound app. It comes with its own USB-C to USB-A cable that plugs in the back of the spherically shaped WebMic to connect to my computer. Also on the mic's back is the ring light on/off/brightness switch and the two controls for the microphone gain, and the volume of the 1/8-inch stereo headphone jack.

Im having a great time with the Movo WebMicHD PRO! It seems well made and works great. My only wish is that it had a speaker inside I could use for Zoom calls in addition to the headphone jack. Its a solid product and a worthwhile addition to any laptop that usually sounds bad and produces a bad visual angle using the internal mic and camera. 

 The Movo WebMicHD PRO sells for $169.95 MSRP.
