The Gamdias IRIS M1 Streaming Webcam offers full HD resolution in 1080p at 60fps. It also comes with autofocus technology, one-tap privacy mode, and an adjustable ring light with a 3-level control for temperature and brightness.

What’s more, this is the only webcam that features a unique camera screw mount for tripods and camera arms. This is perfect for multi-angle and over-head recording, especially for unboxing videos.

The IRIS M1 webcam features full HD resolution in 1080p at up to 60 frames per second, autofocus technology, and an adjustable ring light. The all-in-one camera solution delivers high-definition images while accurately focusing on subjects in any environment with near-zero distortion while protecting your privacy and security with one-tap privacy touch control.

Deliver sharp and detailed FHD (1080p) resolution at a perfectly smooth 60fps granting the perfect visual delicacy while streaming, gaming, recording, or any type of video conference.

ADJUSTABLE RING LIGHT VIA TOUCH CONTROL

The built-in ring light provides 3 levels of color temperature and brightness that is easily adjustable with smart touch control located on the back of the webcam. A short tap on the control will adjust the ring’s brightness, while a long tap will alter its color temperature. Getting decent camera illumination has never been so easy.

ONE-TAP PRIVACY PROTECTION

With a single tap of the top right button, you can instantly turn the display on and off for convenience and privacy. The IRIS M1 also comes with a cover that protects the webcam’s lens and gives you the double-assurance of privacy when not in use.

RAPID AUTOFOCUS

With autofocus technology, the IRIS M1 is able to adjust the lens intelligently in real-time when you move toward or away from the camera. The camera’s 73° FoV is an ideal angle to keep yourself centered while capturing accurate true-to-life videos.

NEAR ZERO DISTORTION LENS

The IRIS M1 is equipped with a premium lens with less than a 1% distortion rating, which is superior to the market standard of a 3% rating. High-quality video footage can be captured using the webcam without any visible distortions.

UNIVERSAL COMPATIBILITY

The adjustable webcam clip can be mounted on your screens or monitors with maximum stability while tilted to the perfect angle, or if you prefer—mounted on a tripod for capturing different angles. With a USB-A connection, the IRIS M1 is an ideal solution for video conferencing, video calls, or online learning.

Photos

There’s nothing special about the packaging. All the features that it offers are mentioned on the box. There wasn’t even a instruction manual, as the webcam is bascially plug-and-play.

 

 

 

A Closer Look

As you can see from the webcam itself, there’s a privacy button which is touch sensitive. The webcame is attached to a 1.5m USB cable (Type-A connector) which is long enough for most users. at the rear of the webcam unit, you’ll find another button which controls the 3-level color temperature and brightness of the ring light. Again, the button is touch sensitive.

You’ll also find a rubber/silicone cap that can be used to protect the webcam. One feature I really like about this webcam is at the base of the clamp. Here, you’ll find a camera screw mount for mounting the webcam to a camera tripod or arm.

 

 

Camera Usability

The clamp on the base of the webcam is extremely versatile and can be used on any monitor or laptop screen. The camera can also be tilted with varying angles to get that perfect position during Zoom calls or streaming session.

 

Tripod Mounting

The Gamdias IRIS M1 webcam features a camera screw mount for tripods and camera arms. This is perfect for multi-angle and over-head recording, especially for unboxing videos. The ring lights allow extra illumination so that the product can the lighting you need during the unbxoing.

 

Verdict and Conclusion

As you can see from the above photos (also watch the video), the Gamdias IRIS M1 is a surprisingly versatile webcam designed for streaming, video calls and more. It comes with autofocus technology, one-tap privacy mode, and an adjustable ring light with a 3-level control for temperature and brightness. I especially like the unique camera screw mount on the base of the clamp, which allows me to mount the webcam on to a tripod or camera arm. This is perfect for any multi-angle and over-head recording, especially for unboxing videos.

I really like this webcam, so much so I can easily give it our recommeded award!
