"Best PC Webcam for Under £60"

Introduction:

I received a Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 as a Christmas present in 2013. It is in my opinion by far the best webcam you can buy for a fantastic price with great quality! I have used it on my PC ever since I got it and it is brilliant.

Product Description:

The Legitech HD Pro Webcam C920 is a small sleek webcam that not only looks great it works great! It can be mounted on the top of a monitor or screen but can also be screwed onto a stand and is plugged in via USB 2.0. It has some of the best quality from any Logitech Webcam and can capture video in HD up to 1080p which is also 1080p when using something like Skype. It can capture 15 MP photos and has built in auto focus and a dual stereo microphone built in.

Pros and Cons:

The webcam has always worked well and has full HD 1080p quality with a fast auto focus and smooth video. It lights up blue around the edge of the lens indicating the camera is turned on and capturing video. It can be used on video chatting applications such as Skype and with use of the downloadable Webcam software it can directly capture photos and record videos that can be later uploaded to YouTube or Facebook. It also features a new technology called H.264 which allows for quick and easy upload to YouTube and Facebook and helps the webcam to run smoother on your computer.

It has dual stereo microphones one on each side of the camera, which record good quality sound for a webcam even though it can sometimes be a bit muffled compared to other microphone or webcams it still record great quality sound that is great for the price.

One of the only possible downsides is the fact it has no protective cover or case and the H.264 isn't supported by all software however I'm still going to rate it 5 out of 5 as it has never been a problem for me.

Conclusion:

In my opinion the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 is a brilliant camera for the amazing price on about £50, it has fantastic HD 1080p quality that is smooth and fast with quick auto focus . It has new standards like the H.264 which can sometimes help and all together looks good. It can record good quality sound for a webcam and is easily placed on a stand or on top of a monitor.

    I have a Logitech webcam too (though a different model) and am very pleased with it.
