Built for streamers in mind.
It’s already 2020 and the future, which means that it’s time for Logitech to start updating its webcam roster. As awesome as its current selection is, there comes a time when folks might want to start mounting their webcams vertically.
Enter the Logitech StreamCam, the logical update for the Logitech C920 webcam that adds a few more bells & whistles and a few extra dollar signs. You can mount it either horizontally or vertically, rotate it on multiple axes, as well as tilt it down at a full 90-degree angle.
If you compare the StreamCam at first glance, you’ll notice that it can stream at a faster framerate and higher resolution. Meaning it’s quite an improvement from the C920, C922, and Razer’s Kiyo to an extent. Check out the full specs below:
- Max resolution: 1080p/60fps in Mjpeg (motion jpeg)
- Focus/Exposure: Smart Auto
- FOV: 78 degrees
- Connection: USB-C 3.1
- Microphone: Stereo / Dual Mono
- Lens: f/2.0 – focal length 3.7mm
The catch? The StreamCam costs US$170, which is a bit more than the C920. But you’ll get a 3-month X-Split premium subscription for free. Also, you may need to get an external light source since the StreamCam doesn’t come with any. And it comes with a USB-C connection, but that shouldn’t be an issue if your computer is just a year old or two.
Good news though; with the StreamCam coming soon to Asia, the C920 and C922 will drop in price. Right now, it’s available in the US and many parts of Europe.
