The best webcams 2022
31 October 2022
Right now, everyone uses video chat. Everyone is using teleconferencing, and many companies are changing their minds about how they feel about people working from home. Still, you want to look your best in a video meeting, which means more than just taking a shower and putting on clothes. You need an excellent webcam more than anything else. Here are the best webcams of 2022.
The Anker PowerConf C200
The Anker Powerconf C200 is the best webcam for less than $100. You get a 2K webcam that takes excellent video in all kinds of lighting has a field of view that you can change, and has a built-in privacy shutter for when you don’t want to be seen.
The Logitech Brio is one of the few products to get a 5-star rating. It has the best video quality of any webcam on the market. Its 4K camera (2160p/30 fps) took prominent pictures in our tests. More importantly, its other features, like face-tracking, High Dynamic Range, and auto light correction, ensured that we always looked our best, no matter the lighting.
This webcam is the smartest and most unique one we’ve seen in a long time. The Insta360 Link has a camera on a 3-axis gimbal that can follow the room as you move. But that’s only the start: It has several AI-enhanced modes, such as Whiteboard, which will automatically find a whiteboard in a room, resize it, and put it in the middle so callers on the other end can see it as clearly as possible. It can also zoom in on your face, half your body, or whole body. You can also use hand gestures to zoom in and out.
The Logitech C920s Pro HD
You have the Logitech C920s HD webcams you can buy, which is why you’ve probably seen them in almost any conference room. The C920s HD records explicit videos at 1080p and 30 frames per second. It also has a wide field of view of 78 degrees, making it great for one-on-one conference calls and meetings in large rooms. Its sleek black design makes it easy to attach to displays or tripods, and the software that comes with it lets you change the backgrounds and avatars. It also has a privacy shutter that you can use to block the camera’s lens.
You’ll have difficulty finding a better deal than the NexiGo N930AF. For around $50, and often less, you can get a webcam that records at 1080p, has auto-focus to help you avoid blurry images, and even has a privacy shutter to give you some peace of mind.
