If you need a webcam, the Razer Kiyo Pro is currently on sale at Amazon and Best Buy for $ 99.99. The $ 100 discount makes the accessory more valuable than when it first came out, which saw it for $ 199.99. It has some decent specs, including the ability to record 1080p recordings at up to 60fps and a wide 103-degree field of view that you can easily crop for tighter framing – as long as you don’t mind using Razer Synapse software.

The Kiyo Pro is a bit of a mixed bag, but it ultimately does a good job of difficult lighting and manages to produce smooth, detailed video. It’s just a bit expensive for what it offers and what it lacks, as 4K resolution, but the current discount makes it a far better value. Read our review.

Google briefly unveiled the upcoming Pixel 7 and announced the budget-friendly Pixel 6A smartphone during its developer conference on Wednesday. While the 6A will offer Google’s flagship Tensor CPU for $ 449, it lacks a headphone jack and counteracts the trend of A-Series phones using the same camera system as their more expensive brothers.

But if you’re in the market for the very best from Google – and you want maximum camera performance – Amazon is selling an unlocked, 128GB Pixel 6 Pro in the two-tone white color variant for $ 856.57. This modest discount of around $ 42 gives you an unlocked phone that you can use on any mobile carrier, as well as Google’s triple camera system, which includes a 50 MP main sensor, a 12 MP ultra-wide and a 48 MP 4x magnification telephoto lens. It also has a larger 6.7-inch screen with a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. Needless to say, there is a lot to like in the top-tier Pixel, and those are features that stand well above the upcoming budget model. Read our review of Pixel 6 Pro.
