Virtual meetings have continued to reign supreme even after most of the world returned to the "new normal" post-pandemic. The ease of connecting with anyone around the world in a matter of seconds is just too convenient, especially as a large portion of the workforce is now remote and/or works from home. That said, if virtual meetings are the primary way people connect beyond an email, Slack, or introductory phone call, then it's just as essential to put your best foot forward in a virtual meeting as you would in person. If you were trying to make a good impression, you would only show up with shoes, unshowered, or a ratty shirt. Putting yourself on a good display by way of having a quality camera is now the same level of importance as dressing professionally for a meeting. 

A grainy, poorly focused camera at a poor angle or looking up your nose from your laptop gives an unprofessional feeling to your presentation in that meeting. That is the image you are presenting. However, alternatively, if you look crisp, in focus, at a good angle, with good lighting, then you look put together and professional.

For that reason, I have loved using the Logitech MX Brio for the last several months. It's one of the best business webcams I've ever used, and I've even been in countless meetings where people ask what camera I use because it looks so professional and put together. What's mind-blowing about this is that there is nothing fancy that I am doing, nor am I anywhere near a professional photographer.

Logitech MX Brio: Unboxing & first impressions

Logitech sends the MX Brio in an unassuming, simple box with good packaging. The box contains the webcam, a mounting clip, a USB-C to USB-C 3.0 cable, and essential documentation.

From the first look, I loved the MX Brio's design language. The Graphite colorway feels very space-grey-like and matches the rest of my Apple gear beautifully. It looks and feels premium and has a sturdy build that won't break on me after using it for a week.

After setting up the camera to my liking, I found it is built with premium quality. Even elements such as the privacy shutter add a level of understated eloquence. I love how easily the camera can point down towards my desk for a desk shot, and I love that the universal mount can fit my MacBook Pro's lid, monitor, iPad, tripod, camera arm, or atop my beloved BenQ Lightbar. No matter where I wanted to put this camera, there was a way to get it right where I wanted it for the perfect camera angle.

Logitech MX Brio: In use

As I mentioned, I love this camera - for me, it's one of the best Logitech webcams I've ever tried. It works great. I love that my setup time, from plugging my laptop in to sitting down and taking a meeting, is next to nothing. Further, if I don't mind a moment longer setup time, I can keep the privacy shade closed, ensuring privacy no matter what (even though I don't leave my laptop plugged in when I am not at my desk). 

It took a couple of minutes to dial in my photo settings how I wanted, but it was super easy. Again, I am far from a professional photographer. I understand the basics of how images work with all the modifications that can be made to help make a photo look better. Armed with my mediocre knowledge and skill level, I got the picture quality to look fantastic even in my basement office with mood lighting and no natural camera lights. As I am on Mac, this camera also integrates perfectly with the portrait mode and studio lighting settings native to Mac's video output in the most recent software update. While I usually use my AirPods Pro for virtual meetings, I tested the microphone on this camera to know how good it is. Overall, I was pleased with it, though not as blown away as I was with the image quality. It's a massive upgrade from internal mics to most laptops, but I still prefer the audio quality from my AirPods Pro 2.

This camera has earned a place on my primary home office desk, where I take most of my business meetings thanks to its ease of use, quality camera shot, and ability to mount just about anywhere without needing anything extra.

Logitech MX Brio: Final verdict

The Logitech MX Brio sets a high bar for webcams with its 4K resolution and extensive feature set. While its price might be steep for some, the exceptional video, decent audio quality, advanced customization options, and sleek design make it a worthwhile investment for professionals looking to boost their virtual meeting presence.
