Suffering from poor lighting? The ring light fitted to the Vitade PC 960A Webcam makes it arguably the best webcam for Skype when bad lighting strikes. It has three levels of lighting, so that you’ll always have the best for your situation or when you just need an extra light source.

Why We Like It – Vitade PC 960A Webcam

Capturing and recording in 1080p, and affordable, the Vitade PC 960A Webcam is packed with features: microphone ring light, even advanced H.264 encoding for easier storage management.

Pros
  • 1080p, 30fps video calls
  • Light ring w/ 3 light levels
  • Tripod-ready base
Cons
  • Clip-on design isn’t the greatest

Type, Lens, Size & Weight

The lens type on the Vitade 960A Pro Webcam is wide angle, providing an 80-degree viewing angle. You can squeeze two people in and be fine. What’s surprising is its size. It measures 1.90 x 2.50 x 3.00 inches and weighs 5.3-oz, probably the smallest webcam among our entries, and significantly smaller than the Logitech HD Webcam C525.

Resolution & Display

Shooting in 1080p, at 30fps, is already fantastic and ideal. But then enhancing lighting? Even better! The Vitade PC 960A Webcam automatically adjusts lighting in low light settings. Still coming out too dark? Then use the on-board ring light with 3 levels of brightness. Even when lighting is good, always check if the ring light will make it better.

Tripod & Image Stability

Get rid of the clip-on and go with a tripod. Clip-ons tend to drop image stability, so take full advantage of the screw hole underneath and your favorite tiny tripod.

Optical Zoom, Microphone, Audio & Storage

The Vitade Web Camera Video Cam does have zoom, but lacks internal storage. That’s pretty common, to be fair. On the other hand, the microphone isn’t that great. It picks up too much static for it to be a viable source of audio—not so much with the Logitech C270 Widescreen HD Webcam.

Value

The Vitade PC 960A Webcam is an interesting beast, because it provides a fair amount of features without being overpriced. The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 is $20 more and yet is limited to 720p during live calls. You also get bonus lighting, which really helps when you’re suffering from poor settings. In other words: a great deal.

Vitade PC 960A Webcam Wrap Up

It’s nice to have on-board lighting when the need arises, making the Vitade PC 960A Webcam unique in that aspect. You just have to look past the clip-on design. Take advantage of the tripod-ready base instead. It’s there you can then fully appreciate the high quality, 1080p resolution at 30fps.
