PlayStation Camera has two 1280×800 pixel cameras with lenses having an aperture of f/2.0, with a 30 cm focusing distance, and an 85° field of view. With the dual camera setup, the camera can operate at different modes, depending on the target application. The two cameras can be used together for the depth perception of objects in its field of vision, akin to the Xbox's Kinect peripheral. Alternatively, one of the cameras can be used for recording video, and the other for motion tracking.
The camera features a four-channel microphone array, which helps reduce unwanted background noise and may even be used to receive voice commands. It is tentatively set to be 186 mm × 27 mm × 27 mm (7.3 in × 1.1 in × 1.1 in) (width × height × depth), with a weight of 183 grams (6.5 oz). It records video in RAW and YUV (uncompressed) formats and connects to the console via an auxiliary port.
It was estimated that 15% of PlayStation 4 owners had a PlayStation Camera in March 2014.
