Logitech Brio + Lewitt DGT 650 

Mic: Lewitt DGT 650 (this is a USB mic)
Cam: Logitech Brio (this is a webcam)
Software: Windows 10 camera app (comes with Win 10)

I am testing the above setup, so I recorded some videos with different settings and I was hoping to get your feedback.

4K at 30 fps: https://youtu.be/4BWZ5kJb-l0
Video size is 1.22 GB for 3 min 20 sec duration
Raw video can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m5rbywavx6y1wvw/4K-30fps.mp4?dl=0

1080p at 60 fps: https://youtu.be/M5FXMysiXKs
Video size is 859 MB for 3 min 20 sec duration
Raw video can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/fk7ms74zkanbm4w/1080p-60fps.mp4?dl=0

720p at 90 fps: https://youtu.be/MJGekERXpbg
Video size is 477 MB for 3 min 20 sec duration
Raw video can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/lkjokfapy977xcv/720p-90fps.mp4?dl=0

720p at 60 fps: https://youtu.be/eXJ5cMycPV4
Video size is 382 MB for 3 min 20 sec duration
Raw video can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/58rww15uiiyzazs/720p-60fps.mp4?dl=0

I did NOT edit the videos or the audio files at all. Just uploaded the raw files directly to YouTube.

What are your thoughts/impressions? Which one of the four formats do you prefer, if any?

Looks superb in 4k. Can see woodgrain well. Sounds fine too - without hearing in-room to compare, hard to criticise.

Very, very few people will be browsing on a 4K device so 1440p is fine and 1080p is your safest option.

On my kit, Youtube scales up and down quite easily and seems to default to 1080 anyway (at least for me using Chrome).

Doing some more testing. The picture-in-picture ones are done automatically through YouCam 7 from CyberLink.







Thoughts?

RE: Logitech Brio + Lewitt DGT 650 (in reply to rombsix

Update on this - for Windows users, a new updated came out on Windows 10 that basically destroyed the 60 FPS functionality of the Brio. I was finally able to bypass that by using OBS as the recording software. This was a MAJOR breakthrough because I was able to get very decent quality with very small file sizes. In the past, with the Win 10 camera app, a one minute video would be 500 MB in size. Now, one minute with OBS is only 50 MB and the quality is more or less similar. Check it out...



Watch this in 1080p at 60 FPS in YouTube.

RE: Logitech Brio + Lewitt DGT 650 (in reply to rombsix

I was having a lot of issues editing audio/video using CyberLink software with my current setup, so I've changed over to Adobe Premiere Rush which seems to be doing a better job and is pretty affordable.

Recording using the Windows 10 native camera app with the Lewitt DGT 650 USB mic as the audio input, the Logitech Brio webcam as the video input (at 1080p with 60 FPS through the camera app), then encoding with constant frame rate at 60 FPS the raw file using Handbrake, then editing audio / video (mainly transitions and to raise the volume) via Rush, and finally exporting as MP4.

This file was 103 MB in size.

Sounds good Amigo. I looked up that mic and it says you can plug it directly into your phone. Have you tried it? I bought one of those IOS mini condensers by Shure a while back as I didn’t want to fuss with syncing up audio and video. Not too fond of the sound quality though. Now a days most interfaces seem to support iOS and Android anyway.
