Best webcam?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Logitech C210 webcam. It's pretty grainy since it's only 1.3MP - so I'm looking for something that takes better pictures/better video quality. It will be used for Skype/TinyChat. Any suggestions? (Price preferably under $150 thumb.gif )

I recommend Live! Cam inPerson HD Webcam http://us.store.creative.com/Live-Cam-inPerson-HD-Webcam/M/B0040X3EG0.htm which have onboard processing so it doesn't use your CPU, but as I just see it now, you already make a purchase.

Logitech C920 records in full 1080p HD up to 30fps. Has a built in encoder so it doesnt tax your cpu and its around $90 on Amazon. thumb.gif
