The Best Webcams Available Now (July 2020)
If you need a webcam for streaming or just work meetings, then there are some good options in stock right now.
With the current pandemic still forcing many people to stay home these days, many have found themselves looking for the best webcam they can get (or a webcam better than the one built into their laptop, at least) to attend meetings or have online hangouts with friends. With so many people looking to buy the best webcam, it can be hard to find a good webcam from many of the best brands, including Logitech, Microsoft, and Razer, that hasn't sold out. With that struggle in mind, we've rounded up our picks for a great HD webcam you can get right now. These may not be the best webcams on the market, but they're still well-reviewed, affordable, and will work just fine for the majority of people if you want to make your next video call more personable.
Many of these webcams are also great for casual Twitch streaming setups. While more professional streamers use DSLR cameras, webcams are a popular way to implant your face into your stream without breaking the bank. A big plus to streaming with a webcam is that you don't need one with an ultra-high resolution, as the picture-in-picture facecam is relatively small compared to the rest of your stream's output--you don't necessarily need to go full HD in your video call, Twitch stream, or Youtube upload. If you're new to streaming or just want a cheap webcam to start with, most of these webcams will suit your needs perfectly. Plus, see our guide to the best streaming accessories for more options, including the best capture cards and best budget gaming chairs.
At the moment, some of our HD webcam picks are discounted, but prices do fluctuate quite a bit and seemingly at random, especially on Amazon. Before you finalize your purchase, double-check that price. As for the webcams we've chosen, the ones you can view below have either been tested by us personally or chosen due to their overwhelmingly positive reviews for the great video quality, ease-of-use as a standalone webcam or streaming webcam.
