The best Logitech cameras provide some of the finest video quality seen in the best webcams.
Whether you’re meeting remotely with colleagues, learning or teaching in an online classroom, presenting at a virtual conference, or working as an online influencer, the right Logitech webcam can make a big difference. Logitech has various webcam models ranging in price from $40 to $200. Because of that, it’s important to know which suits your budget and home office.
In this guide, we’ll look at each and tell you which is the best Logitech webcam based on features, from resolution to privacy shutters, to help you decide which is best for your needs.
1.The Logitech 920S Pro
The Logitech 920S Pro HD Webcam is a slight upgrade to the C920 — Logitech’s flagship webcam — in that it includes an attachable privacy shutter. This serves a dual purpose: protecting the glass lens and also providing privacy when you don’t want to be on camera.
The webcam produces a clear, detailed image with 1080p/30fps video. Autofocus adjusts when you move, while the auto light correction adjusts for light or dark environments. The webcam has a fixed 78-degree field of view, so your image is not too large, but you’re not competing with your background. Dual microphones provide clear audio and the webcam zooms, pans, and tilts.
You can use a universal mounting clip on your monitor or laptop, and the tripod thread helps to keep it steady. Although the webcam works with a variety of platforms, it is not certified-compatible. The Logitech Capture app allows you to edit and customize videos.
2. Logitech StreamCam
If you’re a content creator or a gamer, the Logitech StreamCam is an expensive choice, but it will help you look your best. The 1080p/60fps video streams and records smoothly and the 16:9 format is ideal for such platforms as Facebook and Instagram.
The StreamCam uses AI-enabled facial tracking to provide auto-focus, and the auto-exposure feature adjusts to ensure the best image regardless of lighting. In addition, the dual omnidirectional mic includes a noise reduction filter to make your audio sound crystal clear.
You can easily transition from landscape to portrait mode by simply turning the camera sideways. There’s a monitor mount and a tripod mount included, allowing you to pan and tilt, and you can use the included cable to put the camera on a tripod.
The StreamCam also uses USB Type-C to transfer video using Windows or macOS. Logitech Capture software can be downloaded to use with the camera, and makes it easy for you to record from two sources (like two webcams, or a webcam and desktop), and switch between six scenes in either side-by-side or picture-in-picture mode. The software also includes the ability to adjust your layout and other settings, and add text and transitions.
3.Best Logitech Brio Ultra
The best Logitech webcam for overall quality is the Logitech Brio Ultra HD Pro. Its combination of a premium glass lens and 4K ultra-HD video at 30 fps provides a crystal-clear image, but you can adjust the resolution to 1080p (at 30 or 60 fps) and 720p (at 30, 60, or 90 fps). You can zoom and pan, and the adjustable field of view has three presets to provide a close-up shot, a balanced frame, or a wide background.
RightLight 3 automatically adjusts your image in direct sunlight, low light, or high-contrast scenarios. Meanwhile, the dual omnidirectional mics cancel noise while making your voice crisp and clear. The Brio can be used with Windows 7, 8 and 10, as well as Mac OSX 10.6 and above, and Xbox One. In addition, the Brio uses the Logi Tune app, which allows you to control your webcam and customize settings, such as framing focus and color presets, right on your laptop or desktop. The webcam is also certified to be compatible with most video conferencing apps.
If price is a concern, the Logitech C310 HD Webcam is one of the least expensive options on the list. It has most of the basic functions that the average person would need but is missing a few bells and whistles. Delivering 720p/30fps video your image will be smooth, but won’t be as crisp as the 1080p video you can find with more expensive models. The webcam does not have autofocus, but it does include auto-light correction to adjust for both light and dark environments.
There’s only one mic, but it works effectively to reduce background noise. The 60-degree field of view is ideal for maintaining eye contact. While it’s not certified-compatible, the webcam is compatible with Skype, Zoom, and other popular platforms.
5. Brio is the Logitech C930e
A less expensive, yet still business-grade option with many of the bells and whistles of the Brio is the Logitech C930e. Using 1080p/30fps video, the picture resolution is outstanding. The 90-degree field of view (which is not adjustable) provides full context, which means it includes a lot of your background. The camera also includes light correction, autofocus, and two omnidirectional mics for clear audio.
The adjustable clip allows you to mount the camera wherever it works best, and there’s also an integrated thread to use it with your own tripod. In addition, the lens shade can be flipped to provide privacy when you’re not using the camera. The 930e includes Logi Tune for Desktop, so you can customize and adjust settings.
6. Logitech C922 Pro
Slightly more expensive than the more popular C920s HD, the Logitech C922 Pro HD has more features than the economical, no-frills models, but doesn’t include an adjustable field of view and high dynamic range like the models at the highest price points.
It does have excellent video, streaming at Full 1080p/30fps, as well as autofocus, auto light correction, and two omnidirectional microphones. And it has something that’s rare in the Logitech webcam universe: a tripod. Still, unless you’re planning to use this webcam apart from your monitor, it’s not the best choice.
7. Logitech C270
If you’re looking for a basic camera for distance learning or conference calls, the Logitech C270 HD Webcam won’t break the bank. While it doesn’t have an autofocus feature, it does have auto-light correction, so your image will look right. The camera lens is plastic instead of glass, and the mic is mono instead of dual, but this should be sufficient for virtual classrooms and chatting with family and friends.
The webcam also has a universal mounting clip to put the camera on the laptop or stand on a table or shelf, but it lacks a privacy shutter.
