The C920 enables video conferencing in Full HD.
Is simple HD quality not good enough for video conferencing? Then the C920 HD Pro from Logitech is the right choice for you: With Full HD support of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels at 30 frames per second, videos shine sharply and in great detail. If 720p is sufficient, you will benefit from a more fluid image display thanks to 60 Hz.
The glass lens consists of five elements and even has an auto focus and automatic HD exposure correction. When it comes to sound, the webcam has two microphones with automatic noise reduction. The ideal cam for more demanding users.

Up to 110 euros: Razer Kiyo streaming camera
The streaming cam films at up to 1080p at 30 fps and at the same time ensures a well-tempered light – because the right ring light is directly integrated. This avoids hard shadows. The equally fast and precise autofocus does not lose focus even with fast movements. And even if Cam is primarily aimed at streamers, you can also use it excellently for video telephony in your home office.
