The best cheap webcams

By syrus

The best 4K webcams could cost you hundreds of dollars, but do you need to? When this article was written, most of the webcams on this list cost less than $50 or £50, but they still have excellent video and audio quality. Here are the best cheap webcams on the market right now. They work with Windows and Mac computers and have 780p to 1080p Full HD resolutions. But you can check out our general guide to the best cheap webcams if you need something that isn’t covered here.

Logitech C310 HD Webcam

Logitech is a well-known brand for webcams and a good reason. Even its most basic webcam is a must-have for PC owners who want to make video calls. The Logitech C310 doesn’t have as many ways to customize it as its more expensive siblings. But if you want something to put on top of your monitor, the C310 is an excellent piece of hardware thanks to its robust design and Logitech’s general reliability.

LifeCam Studio from Microsoft

Microsoft’s LifeCam Studio has been a popular and cheap webcam for the office for a long time. It doesn’t look stylish, but it has many features that will come in handy for work calls. The wide field of view is great if you need to show something in the background or do a physical demonstration during a presentation. Turning it to 360 degrees is beneficial so you can make custom setups on the fly.

Depstech 2K QHD Webcam

Cheap webcams often try to reach for the stars with higher resolutions like 1440P, but the Depstech 2K QHD Webcam does it better than most. For less than $30, this camera gives you a wide field of view and HDR support for videos you take. Because it has a higher resolution, you can expect the video to look more smooth and more precise.

Razer Kiyo

Razer’s Razer Kiyo webcam, which is a cheap webcam, is a unique piece of gear. It has a cute ring light that ensures your face is well-lit even if the rest of the room isn’t. It’s one of the more expensive options on this list. Still, it has a lot of customization options and works well with Livestream production apps like OBS Studio and Streamlabs, making it an excellent webcam for people who want to start streaming.

The AVerMedia Live Streamer 313

AVerMedia has made a name for itself by making great gaming products, just like Razer. The AVerMedia Live Streamer 313 is a cheap webcam with some of the same features as the Kiyo. The Live Streamer 313 can stream in either 1080p at 30fps or 720p at 60fps. It also has a 360-degree swivel that lets you move the camera or use it as a dedicated microphone for phone calls. It also has good configuration options through AVerMedia’s CamEngine software, which lets you make the best picture possible.
