Web camera vs. dslr camera - worth to know

We have prepared a comparison of the same frames with the same lighting. The tests used (one of the best available on the market) webcam - Logitech Webcam C930c and a standard camera Canon EOS 1300D.

Pictures are raw - not subjected to any processing. You'll find a link to the original next to each one. We encourage you to download and compare (you can see more differences on the originals).

** a huge disadvantage of webcams is the inability to change the "zoom". Webcams have a very wide viewing angle - they are designed to work very closely, i.e. so that the filmed model is about 50-70cm in front of the lens. This is a huge problem when setting the right photobooth frame. The wide frame means that every background is too narrow and the people who take pictures - they stand very close to the photobooth and are very "small" - they do not fill the frame.
