TOP 8 best webcams according to customer reviews

10 Mins read

In this ranking, I have compiled the 8 best webcams for 2021 . My TOP includes models from different price categories from 1,000 to 18,000 rubles . When selecting models, I paid attention to such characteristics as video resolution, microphone quality, smart focusing, additional functionality and compatibility with all operating systems. For greater objectivity, I studied the reviews of YouTube bloggers, ordinary users and expert comments.

Logitech brio

Logitech brio

Characteristics
  • video resolution: 3840 × 2160
  • matrix: 8.3 MP
  • lens angle of view: 90 °
  • digital zoom: 5x
  • design: mount on the monitor
  • compatibility: Windows, MacOS

The first place in the TOP is taken by Logitech Brio. The company says this gadget is the best they’ve ever made. The camera records and broadcasts video in 4K format at 30 frames per second , in FullHD format at 30/60 frames per second, in HD format at 30/60 and 90 frames per second. The camera has 3 automatic modes with adjustable field of view from 65 ° to 90 °. All of these options support 4K resolution and 5x zoom. RightLight 3 technology corrects color and light, whether you’re in the sun or in dim environments.

With two noise canceling microphones , you will be heard perfectly. An interesting feature is the presence of an infrared and optical sensor for recognizing your face, that is, when interacting with Windows 10 when you turn on the PC, you do not need to enter a password – the system will automatically recognize you.

I would like to note the universal clip mount : thanks to it, the camera can be mounted on a monitor, table, laptop or even on a tripod. Additional settings (panorama, zoom and many others) can be configured in the proprietary program Logitech Camera Settings. There is a certain category of users who think that they are being watched through a camera lens. Now you don’t have to glue it down: for this case, the Brio has a lens cover. The gadget is compatible with PCs running Windows, Mac OS and connects with a regular USB cable. The package includes a privacy shutter, carrying case, USB cable, universal mount and documents.

Pros:
  • Shooting in 4K format.
  • 5th zoom.
  • RightLight Technology 3.
  • 2 microphones with noise canceling.
  • High quality video.
  • Proprietary program Logitech Camera Settings.
  • Protective shutter.
  • Fastening.
Minuses:
  • High price.
  • Heats up quickly.
  • Powerful PC required.
  • Thick wire.

The price is 15,000 rubles . For a reason, the manufacturer claims that this is their best model among all webcams that they have released, and this is a fully deserved word. With good lighting and a powerful PC, 4K video is obtained without noise and interference, add 2 good microphones and get excellent video content at the output.

However, you shouldn’t shoot for more than two hours: the gadget starts to get very hot and can burn out. Most often, due to the intense heat, the lens breaks in the Brio. A small nuance with the cable: it is thick and capable of overturning the camera standing on the table. I want to emphasize that only a powerful computer will reveal the full potential of the camera. If you have a medium-sized PC, then this device is not for you.

Logitech C922 Pro Stream

Logitech Model C922 Pro Stream

Characteristics
  • video resolution: 1920 × 1080
  • matrix: 2 MP
  • connection: USB 2.0
  • built-in microphone
  • design: mount on the monitor
  • compatibility: Windows, MacOS

In second place is another webcam from Logitech, the C922 Pro Stream. Video recording and streaming for YouTube or Twitch is  1080p Full HD @ 30fps or HD 720p @ 60fps . The maximum viewing angle is 78 ° , but there are no three automatic modes with the desired angle, like the Logitech Brio.

I would like to note that at 720p the image quality remains high, if you are a streamer, then your broadcast will be clearly visible and free from various distortions. Equipped with auto focus system and light level correction. This, of course, is not RightLight 3 technology, as in the model above, but it also exhibits lighting quite well. In video, the sound quality is good thanks to the two stereo microphones , and although they are without noise cancellation, your viewer will hear you very clearly.

If you’re an aspiring YouTube blogger, there is one thing that might interest you: the camera comes with a free 3-month license for video streaming software such as XSplit Broadcaster and XSplit Gamecaster, along with all the features available. The proprietary Logitech Capture app allows you to customize many camera settings and fully prepare it for your needs. The device is connected to a PC with a regular USB cable and is compatible with Windows, Mac OS, Chrome OS and Android 5.0. Includes tripod, application license, and documentation.

Pros:
  • Video clarity.
  • Build quality.
  • Easy installation.
  • Autofocus.
  • 3-month license for streaming applications.
Minuses:
  • The short cord is only 1.5 meters long.
  • No background blur function.
  • No up / down or left / right adjustment when mounted on a monitor.

Another model of the Logitech brand with very good parameters and at a good price – 9,000 rubles . This camera works equally well for novice streamers, as well as for remote work or training. All the advantages of this gadget are visible even on a PC with average parameters, and there is no such problem as in Brio.

It connects in a few seconds, just plug the cable into the PC and you can already shoot content, but it’s a pity that there is no such important function as background blur. Many bloggers would like to have this opportunity. It is better to install this device on a tripod so that you can tilt it to the sides. If you attach it to the monitor, then you will no longer be able to adjust the position.

Creative Live! Cam Sync 1080p

Creative Live!  Cam Sync 1080p

Characteristics
  • video resolution: 1920 × 1080
  • matrix: 2.07 MP
  • lens angle of view: 77 °
  • built-in microphone
  • design: mount on the monitor
  • compatibility: Windows, MacOS

Creative Live! Closes the top three. Externally, the gadget is similar to the Logitech C922, but when mounted on the monitor, it can be rotated vertically and horizontally. Video recording is carried out in Full HD and HD format at a frequency of 30 frames per second, and the picture quality is not inferior to the model above. The viewing angles are 77 ° , which means that several people or even a group of people can easily fit into the frame for a video conference.

The device is equipped with two microphones without noise cancellation, the interlocutor will clearly hear you, but at some moments there will still be extraneous noises. A nice bonus is the presence of a lens cover : it is needed to protect your privacy and simply protect the camera from dust and debris. Connects with a standard USB cable to any PC running Windows or Mac OS. The delivery set includes documentation and a warranty card.

Pros:
  • Affordable price.
  • Video quality.
  • Viewing angle.
  • The presence of a lens cap.
Minuses:
  • There is no additional software for advanced configuration.
  • Bad audibility a meter from the camera.
  • The short wire is 1.5 meters.

Creative managed to create a webcam that fully meets the expression “price-quality”. The video detail is at a high level, but sometimes slight noise is visible, although this is not critical. With sound, the situation is a little worse: you need to place the camera near you, since it will be difficult for the viewer to hear the sound a meter away from you, after all, the microphones in the Logitech C922 are better. The price is 4,000 rubles, and if we take into account all the advantages of this gadget, then the price fully reflects its capabilities. It’s better to choose a different camera for streaming on YouTube, but for remote work or training this is a good option.

Canyon CNS-CWC5

Canyon CNS-CWC5

Characteristics
  • video resolution: 1920 × 1080
  • matrix: 2 MP
  • auto noise canceling microphone
  • built-in microphone
  • design: mount on the monitor
  • compatibility: Windows, MacOS

The fourth place is taken by Canyon. The camera is capable of shooting Full HD and HD video at 30 frames per second  with a maximum viewing angle of 65 °. This indicator is clearly inferior to Creative and C922. The webcam is equipped with an automatic light correction system that works regardless of room lighting, smart autofocus and one noise canceling microphone.

CWC5 can be easily mounted on a monitor or on a tripod. Connects to a PC with a standard USB cable running Windwos, Mac OS and Android 5.0 or higher. The package includes a user manual and a 2-year warranty.

Pros:
  • Affordable price.
  • Good color rendering.
  • 2-year warranty.
  • Microphone.
  • Clear video.
Minuses:
  • Autofocus does not always work right away.
  • Heats up.
  • Video noise in a poorly lit room.

Canyon did a great job on their product, creating a mid-range webcam. For 3,600 rubles you get a small gadget that shoots in good resolution. Your viewer hears you clearly, without unnecessary noise thanks to noise reduction, but the autofocus function does not always work right away or may lose you at the most inopportune moment.

For video clarity, you need a well-lit room, since noise appears in the video in poor light. If you consider all these factors, then this camera is worth its money, and having purchased it, you will be satisfied with such a purchase.

A4Tech PK-910P

 A4Tech PK-910P

Characteristics
  • video resolution: 1280 × 720
  • matrix: 1 MP
  • built-in microphone
  • lens angle of view: 68 °
  • design: mount on the monitor
  • compatibility: Windows, MacOS

The fifth place is confidently held by A4Tech. Externally, the camera looks quite attractive. Shoots 720p HD video at 30 frames per second . The lens is covered with a special anti-reflective coating, so the picture is always bright and clear. The lens has a 68 ° viewing angle ; in this respect, the PK-910P outperforms the higher-ranking Canyon model.

To my surprise, the company’s engineers equipped the camera with a fixed autofocus function. The microphone in the model, although without noise cancellation, but the interlocutor hears you quite clearly at a distance of up to 1 meter. The camera is attached to the monitor with a universal mount and can rotate 360 ​​° , but there is no thread for a tripod at the bottom of the body. Connecting to a Windows PC is the simplest and most reliable: via USB 2.0 cable 1.5 meters long

Pros:
  • Build quality.
  • Video clarity.
  • Sound.
  • Autofocus.
Minuses:
  • There is no tripod thread.
  • No Full HD resolution.
  • Overcharge.

The camera from A4Tech shoots video of good quality, it has autofocus and good sound, but only with 720p HD resolution, 1080p resolution is not supported, but the picture quality here is not much, but still better than in the Genius QCam 6000, the same applies to sound. The price is 2,300 rubles , and considering that the webcam does not support Full HD, I think the price is a little overpriced.

Genius QCam 6000

Genius QCam 6000

Characteristics
  • video resolution: 1920 × 1080
  • maximum frame rate 30Hz
  • built-in microphone
  • design: mount on the monitor
  • compatibility: Windows, MacOS

Genius is in sixth place. Webcam. belongs to the budget line, but despite this, it is capable of shooting 1080p Full HD video at 30 frames per second . According to these indicators, QCam is not inferior to Canyon CWC5. The gadget is equipped with a simple digital microphone, the sound quality is poor, the interlocutor will hear you well, but with different noises.

The camera is attached to the monitor with a special holder, thanks to which the device can be tilted up and down 90 ° and rotated 360 ° . A nice bonus is the presence of a thread at the bottom of the case for attaching the gadget to a tripod. It is connected to a PC running Windows with a regular cable with a USB 2.0 connector.

Pros:
  • Easy to customize.
  • Video quality.
  • Tripod thread.
  • Tilt angles.
Minuses:
  • Microphone.
  • Video noise.
  • Overcharge.

The Genius company often pleases us with interesting gadgets, QCam is no exception, but it does not stand out in anything interesting, considering its price – 2,800 rubles . The video quality in good lighting is quite good – with 1080p Full HD resolution, the interference is almost invisible, but as soon as there is less light, interference appears, and the picture becomes much worse. Sound quality is average. If you only need a camera for remote teaching, then this is a very worthy reference.

CBR CW 855HD

CBR CW 855HD

Characteristics
  • video resolution: 1280 × 720
  • matrix: 1 MP
  • built-in microphone
  • lens angle of view: 90 °
  • design: mount on the monitor
  • compatibility: Windows, MacOS

In seventh place is the CBR CW 855HD. Externally, the camera is very similar to the Defender G-lens 2579, only without orange inserts, but it does not look so beautiful anymore. The gadget is capable of recording video with 720p HD resolution and 30 frames per second .

The webcam is easily mounted on the monitor screen, has good mobility and provides a 90 ° viewing angle . The microphone is installed here the simplest, without a noise canceling system, but during online training or normal conversation, the interlocutor hears you clearly. Just connect the camera to a PC running Windows, Linux or Mac OS using a standard USB cable 1.4 meters long, and it will be ready for use without additional configuration.

Pros:
  • Affordable price.
  • Viewing angle.
  • Linux and Mac OS support.
Minuses:
  • Sound quality.
  • There is a lot of noise in the video in low light.

The most budget camera in the rating, but in terms of characteristics it is not inferior to QCam and G-lens. In fact, they are almost the same, only different manufacturers, and each has its own small pros and cons. Here everyone chooses the gadget that he likes. This device is hardly suitable for youtube bloggers – it is more for remote learning, remote work or general Skype communication. Price – 1,350 rubles.

 

Defender G-lens 2579 HD720p

Defender G-lens 2579 HD720p

Characteristics
  • video resolution: 1280 × 720
  • matrix: 2 MP
  • built-in microphone
  • lens angle of view: 48 °
  • design: mount on the monitor
  • compatibility: Windows, MacOS

Closes the Defender G-lens rating. The webcam differs from the others presented in the rating with its design, and the orange stripes add uniqueness. Shoots 720p HD video at 30 frames per second .

The camera implements technology that is responsible for automatic image adjustment and automatic sensitivity adjustment. Similar technology is found in the Logitech Brio and the Logitech C922. The device is equipped with a conventional digital microphone , which is separately connected via a 3.5 mm plug, and it does not stand out for its good quality: you will be heard well, but with interference, and without additional tuning your voice will sound like a trumpet.

The camera is attached to the monitor with a conventional mount, which provides a 48 ° lens field of view . The USB cable is only 1.2 meters long, which is very inconvenient. The gadget works without problems with OS Windows, despite the budget segment, the manufacturer has added a disc with software for additional configuration in the package.

Pros:
  • Appearance.
  • Shooting in 720p HD.
  • Automatic adjustment of light and image.
  • CD with software included.
  • Price.
Minuses:
  • Noise when shooting video in a poorly lit room.
  • Sound.
  • Short cord.
  • Separately connected microphone.

A nice webcam from Defender is in the TOP sales in the world because of the price – only  1,400 rubles . Users shared 50-50 in terms of the convenience of the microphone: some like that it is connected with a separate cable, others do not, it is more convenient for someone here, but none of the above-mentioned manufacturers gave their consumers such a choice. Video quality is good in a well-lit room, but as soon as it gets a little darker, noise appears immediately. But for a budget camera, everything is very good, it is certainly worth its money.
