The 4 best webcams (2022): Razer, Logitech and more | MarketingwithAnoy

Razer Kiyo for $ 72: Our previous best choice, the original Kiyo still offers 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second (or 720p at 60 frames per second) and built-in lighting that is controlled by rotating the illuminated ring to brighten, dim or turn it off completely. The image quality is good, with beautiful colors, and the camera quickly adjusts the white balance when the ambient light of the room changes. It autofocuses well, but you will see that it is noticeably adjusted as you move around the frame. The field of view is slightly wider than typical webcams and comes in at around 82 degrees. After a month, the hinge on my Kiyo broke, which gave me a break. But my second is going strong and WIRED writer Parker Hall has not had any issues with his Kiyo so we are still confident in our recommendation.

Anchor B600 Video Bar 2K Webcam for $ 220: Review editor Julian Chokkattu calls the B600’s video quality excellent. If your computer can power it, the B600 can stream at up to 2K resolution. However, it is very expensive and too large to hang from a laptop screen like the other webcams in this guide. In low light, the image quality is very weak even with the built-in light source, so it is best paired with an external light.

Obsbot Tiny 4K AI Webcam for $ 269: Chokkattu has been making Obsbot his primary webcam for more than six months, and as someone who video conferences with him several times a week, I can say that its 4K compatible image looks good. What makes it stand out is that it automatically tracks your face if you move around, making it look like you have a private camera team. You can turn this feature on and off with the palm of your hand as it responds to hand movements.

Logitech C922x for $ 99: C922X is a stable webcam with solid specifications. It can stream 1080p video at 30 frames per second or 720p at 60 frames per second, making the Razer Kiyo and Kiyo X its best competition. But it is more expensive than both and has a slightly narrower 78-degree field of view. It’s a good webcam, but you can get a comparable Kiyo X for less money.

Logitech C615 for $ 29: The specifications were fantastic (at the original price) – 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second with a 78-degree field of view – and the image quality is fine in anything but dim light. You can also rotate the camera 360 degrees, which review editor Julian Chokkattu says he does when he is not using it, as there is no private shutter. On the downside, the microphone records in mono, not stereo, and the short cord could make it annoying to use with a desktop, even though it works fine with a laptop. If retail stocks are thinning and that’s all you can find, it’s not a bad option, although for a few extra bucks, your choices will be much better.

Logitech C930e for $ 73: This is the business-oriented alternative to the Logitech C920 with a 90-degree field of view that is better at capturing large groups of participants than the C920’s 78-degree field of view. For a single user at home, 90 degrees can be an interesting and welcome option (I liked the optional setting on Brio). Unlike Brio, you are locked to only use 90 degrees, which may not work for everyone. This webcam has not historically been as cheap as it has been lately. When it’s past, typical prices over $ 100 plus, it’s not worth the extra cost. Under $ 100 it is an acceptable webcam with
