The company designed this camera to be simple to set up, and you can even get it up and running in about 10 minutes. Once it is set up, you’ll be able to operate it using your smartphone if you’d like to. It can also work with PC and Mac so that you can use more advanced control options with the appropriate software.
Controlling this camera is easy, but you can get very fine-tuned control if you use an IP joystick controller or a serial joystick controller. When you’re using the right software and joystick, it’s very easy to shoot professional footage using this camera. It’s also great that the camera moves quietly due to advanced noise-reduction technology.

Of course, this camera offers full HD video at 1080p and 60FPS. It has a 12x zoom function on the standard model that will allow you to get very nice close-up shots. You can also choose to purchase a model that has 20x zoom or 30x zoom for a little more money if you need the increased zoom. Overall, the quality of this camera makes it an excellent buy.
Logitech is going to stand out in some positive ways when compared to the PTZOptics camera mentioned above. The first thing that you will notice is that this camera is offering ultra HD instead of just sticking to 1080p. If you want to be able to shoot video in 4K, then this PTZ camera from Logitech might be the best one on the market for you. The video quality is truly brilliant and the colors look so good on this camera.
This is another camera that works very well no matter what type of light conditions you’re working with. You can get good video even when you’re shooting in dim light due to the Logitech RightLight technology in the camera. It helps you to get the skin tones right while emphasizing faces, and your video will turn out very well. The camera itself happens to look very sleek and professional as well.
If you’re at all worried about putting a camera in your workspace, then this Logitech model will help to put your mind at ease. It looks very good and it doesn’t stick out in a bad way.

Noise is an important factor to consider when looking into these cameras, and this one happens to be whisper quiet. It does a great job of operating without making noise even when you’re zooming in or panning the camera around. This camera can also move pretty fast while remaining steady, and it helps to keep your video looking great. Installation is even easy, and this makes it so that you can get things set up without it being a hassle.
Much like the PTZOptics camera mentioned above, you can plug this camera in and get it to work with your PC or Mac. It even boasts being plug-and-play compatible with most video conferencing, recording, and broadcasting applications that are made to support USB cameras. For many people, this is going to be an ideal PTZ camera to purchase because of how easy it is to use as well as the fact that it offers 4K video.
PTZoptics vs. Logitech
Determining a winner in the battle of PTZOptics vs. Logitech is not going to be simple. Both cameras perform superbly, but it depends on what you need. You’re going to get more advanced options when using the PTZOptics camera due to it offering support for IP joysticks and serial IP joysticks. However, you are able to get very good results from the Logitech model due to it being compatible with so many different applications. Keep in mind however that the Logitech Rally Camera is a USB camera and will need to be mounted less than 15′ from your computer unless you buy USB booster cables.
If you’re looking for pure video quality, then the Logitech PTZ camera is able to offer 4K video as well as 1080p video at 30FPS. PTZOptics tops out at 1080p with 60FPS, and you aren’t going to be able to do ultra HD at this point in time. You just have to ask yourself whether you need 4K video or not. These cameras perform very well when it comes to zoom functions, maneuverability, and working in low-light situations.
Both cameras are reasonably priced for what they are, too. Just take a bit of time to consider the features and how they compare to each other. Both cameras operate quietly and both of them are easy to get set up. At the end of the day, it might come down to whether you want to shoot video in 4K or not. The PTZOptics does have the better framerate, though, and that could sway things in its favor depending on your expectations and plans for the camera.
