For some of the best quality you can find, for a good price, the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 Widescreen proves itself to be the best webcam for Skype. In fact, it saves its best feature\u20141080p at 30fps\u2014for Skype only. Within and outside of Skype, you still get improved image quality through its use of a glass lens.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920\r\nSeemingly built just for Skype, the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 can output your beautiful mug in crisp 1080p, at 30 frames per second, while in use with Skype.\r\n\r\nType, Lens, Size & Weight\r\nHaving a glass lens does more than improve durability, it also gives your footage clearer picture than plastic. Unfortunately, the Logitech C920 HD Pro Webcam doesn\u2019t come with a lens cover. Still one of the smallest webcams at 7.68-oz and dimensions of 3.70 x 1.70 x 2.80 inches, significantly smaller than the Logitech HD Webcam C525.\r\nResolution & Display\r\nWhen firing up Skype for video calls, you can expect 1080p at 30fps, which is great for clarity and conferences; and it\u2019s the same for capturing footage. Outside of that, however, it drops to 720p depending on the software\u2014but that\u2019s still full HD video.\r\nTripod & Image Stability\r\nImage stability is okay, but over time may drop. The issue is the clip-on design, which doesn\u2019t always secure the camera, and over time loosens. Thankfully, the C920 Webcam supports tripods.\r\nOptical Zoom, Microphone, Audio & Storage\r\nYou\u2019ll find the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 Widescreen lacks optical zoom and internal storage, but makes up through its autofocus. It does well at snapping back to your face when something interrupts. Audio quality is also a few steps above the Logitech C270 Widescreen HD Webcam due to it being omni-directional. That means it has a mic on each side, providing better, higher quality stereo sound.\r\nValue\r\nLogitech webcams tend to be priced fairly, and given the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 Widescreen\u2019s performance, we\u2019d say $83 is right on the money. You\u2019re getting bumps in quality in almost every corner: sound quality, glass lens, durability, and image. But if you thought to yourself, \u201cThat\u2019s more than I want to pay,\u201d then downgrade to a Microsoft LifeCam.\r\nLogitech HD Pro Webcam C920 Wrap Up\r\nYou\u2019ll be really happy with the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 Widescreen\u2019s performance, at least with Skype. Live footage with 1080p at 30fps and a glass lens ensures no details are missed. We do wish a lens cover had been added, but that\u2019s definitely something you can pick up at a later date, preferably with a tripod.
