Meet the Opal C1

The first professional webcam



DSLR quality on a webcam
for the first time.

The fastest lens ever on a webcam.
Making it better at capturing incredible low-light video. An ƒ1.8, six-element, glass lens brings in 2.4x more light than any other webcam. So even in a dimly lit room, you’ll get a level of detail and color that wasn’t possible before.
A Mirrorless Miracle.
With a 7.8mm, 4K Sony sensor, the Opal C1 gives you the brightest brights, darker blacks, and more than 5x the resolution of a regular webcam to help you look your best.
The most advanced materials.
An understated anodized finish with precisely-machined aluminum specifically designed for Opal. It’s the best a webcam’s ever looked. And it’s recyclable.
