Over 60s webcam dating site for intelligent people
If you regularly use your webcam to stream to sites like You Tube or Twitch, and want to be able to put smooth 60 fps video of yourself on top of your 60 fps game footage, you’ll like Logitech’s C922x Pro Stream Webcam.
The C920, our top pick, is less expensive and our testers preferred its picture quality, but the C922x was a close second and it uses an identical microphone and monitor clip.
Once we narrowed down the field, we took multiple pictures and videos with each webcam under controlled conditions so we could compare them directly.
For our 2017 tests, here’s what we captured with each contender: We then had seven Wirecutter staffers compare the images and videos from the different cameras, without knowing which was which, and rank their quality from best to worst.
Kimber Streams has written about tech for six years and been a PC expert for The Wirecutter for more than three years.
Kimber has tested hundreds of laptops, even more storage devices, and way too many peripherals—including wireless mice, mechanical keyboards, and webcams.
A good webcam for most people should meet all of these basic criteria, which we used as guidelines for our research: Five of the webcams we tested met or exceeded all of our requirements, and they were all from Logitech: the Brio, C922x, C920, C615, and C525.
The C920’s autofocus works quickly, and the camera does a good job of adjusting its exposure and white balance—even in rooms with a mix of sunlight and warm overhead light, or when you’re sitting in front of a bright window.
It did just as well as or better than the more expensive C922x and the Brio in these tests.
But there’s still no better webcam for the basics, and price drops have only improved the C920’s value—you can usually find it for or less today, a significant drop from the 0 it cost when it was released.
If you need a less-expensive option, or something you can take with you, we recommend the Logitech HD Webcam C615.
