With the current pandemic still forcing many people to stay home these days, many have found that they need a webcam (better than the one that’s built into your laptop) to attend meetings or have online hangouts with friends. With so many people looking to buy a 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 some of the best webcams available to buy 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.
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. If you’re new to streaming, 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 these webcams are discounted, but prices do fluctuate quite quickly and seemingly randomly, 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.
