Updated Studio Display Camera Firmware Is Available in MacOS 12.4 Beta 3

The Verge:

When we reviewed Apple’s $1,599 Studio Display one thing immediately jumped out: its built-in webcam is bad. At the time, Apple told us that an update to improve the camera would be forthcoming, and now it appears to be here. Apple spokesperson Jennie Orphanopoulos tells The Verge that “an update to the Studio Display firmware is now available with today’s beta release of macOS Monterey 12.4. This beta update has refinements to the Studio Display camera tuning, including improved noise reduction, contrast, and framing.” [...]

Developers are able to install the Monterey 12.4 beta now; everyone else will be able to install it from Apple’s public beta program later today.

The public beta is now out. I installed the developer beta this afternoon, and my very quick impression is that image quality is at least somewhat improved. Center Stage feels more natural too. Full report forthcoming.
