8 best webcams for live streaming image

Webcams are a popular – and convenient – option for live streaming. But with so many different brands and models out there, it can take hours of research to figure out which one will meet your needs. We’ve got you covered with a rundown of the eight best webcams for streaming on the market in 2019.

Whether you’re looking to host a webinar, add another angle to your live lectures, or try your hand at a career on YouTube or Twitch, a webcam is worth considering. It’s no longer true that opting for one means you’ll be stuck producing amateurish, low-quality videos. Webcams have improved by leaps and bounds over the past decade or so. Many available today boast impressive features like digital zoom, autofocus, high frame rates, the ability to output to 1080p – even 4K.

You might already have a webcam – built into your computer monitor or laptop screen. These internal webcams are nice to have, but better suited for video calls than live streaming. External cameras offer superior video quality, which will give your streams a more professional feel. Standalone cameras also offer more flexibility when it comes to placement, making it easier to shoot better, more evenly lit video.

External webcams are super simple to set up, which is one of their biggest selling points. No need for a capture card. Just plug it into a free USB port on your computer, download streaming software or log into your preferred video-streaming platform, and away you go.Easy webcam set-up

Webcams are easy to set up. It’s one reason why they’re such a popular choice for live streaming.

Of course, webcams are just one kind of camera you can use to live stream – from camcorders and action cams to DSLRs, mirrorless, and PTZ cameras. We previously recommended a bunch of cameras across these categories, broken down by budget. Here, we’re going to look exclusively at the best webcams for streaming.AV.io HD

Webcams 101

What makes Webcam A different from Webcam B? Brand is one factor. Cost is another. Apart from these, there’s a handful of terms you should familiarize yourself with before you start weighing your options. Depending on your goals for live streaming, some of these aspects may be more important to you than others:

Resolution

Put simply, resolution refers to the number of pixels on screen. The higher the resolution, the better your video will look. Common resolutions you’ll see include (in order of quality) 480p, 720p, 1080p, and 4K, which is also called Ultra HD.

Frame rate

Measured in frames per second (fps), frame rate refers to the speed at which the individual images that make up a video are displayed on screen. A frame rate of 30 fps will suffice for most users, while anything under 24 fps will make for a choppy viewing experience.

Field of view

Expressed in degrees, a webcam’s field of view (FOV) is the area its lens will capture. In webcams meant for streaming, FOVs tend to range from 50 to 120 degrees. You might favor a broader FOV if you plan to capture multiple people or an entire conference room. If that’s the case, look for webcams with what’s called a “wide-angle lens” (or dig through the specs to get an exact FOV value).

Lens quality

Webcam lenses can be made of plastic or glass. Glass lenses tend to perform better. While glass commands a higher price than plastic, it’s often worth it for crisper, more vibrant video.

Low-light performance

You could have a webcam capable of delivering 1080p yet still end up with poor quality video. Why? Because a lot of cameras have trouble in low-light conditions. That’s to be expected since cameras work by capturing light. But some cameras – webcams included – are more low-light capable than others due to sensor size, special features (e.g., low-light modes), and other factors. If where you’ll be streaming from is dimly lit, either brighten things up or look for cameras that excel in darker settings.

Extra features

Webcam manufacturers often build in additional features to help their products stand out. Digital zoom and autofocus are a couple of examples. Background replacement is another popular one. It’s what a lot of gamers on Twitch and other streaming platforms use to film themselves with their gameplay as a backdrop. (The same effect is possible with a greenscreen setup, but that’s another investment.)Compatibility with your operating system (Windows, macOS, Linux) is another important consideration. Do your research to ensure the webcam you have your eye on will play nice with the computer you connect it to.

What’s the best webcam for streaming?

Ultimately, the best webcam for streaming won’t be the same for everyone. It depends on your needs – and your budget. The Holy Grail is a cam that delivers professional-grade quality and the features that matter to you – all at the right price.

While we can’t point you directly to the best webcam for streaming, we can narrow your search. All our recommended cameras are built for live streaming and have earned generally positive reviews from users. We’ve tried to pick cameras at a variety of price points to suit different budgets.

Getting started ($30–$70)

When it comes to streaming, it doesn’t always make sense to go big right out of the gate. Pricier webcams may offer a bunch of features you’ll never touch. If you’re a social streamer who’s just starting out, any of these budget webcams might do the trick:%3Ctable%20style%3D%22width%3A100%25%3B%22%3E%20%0A%09%3Ctr%3E%0A%09%09%3Ctd%20width%3D20%25%20valign%3Dtop%20style%3D%27border%3Asolid%20%23e3e3e3%201.0pt%3Bbackground%3Awhite%3B%20padding%3A8px%208px%208px%2015px%3B%27%3E%3Ca%20class%3D%22anchor-spacing-class%22%20name%3D%22ausdom%22%3E%3C%2Fa%3E%3Cimg%20src%3D%22https%3A%2F%2Fdl4ih61pxf6wa.cloudfront.net%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2019%2F07%2F25101057%2FAusdom-Full-HD-1080p-Webcam.jpg%22%20alt%3D%22Ausdom%20Full%20HD%201080p%20Webcam%20%22%20height%3D%22161%22%20width%3D%22142%22%3E%0A%09%09%3C%2Ftd%3E%0A%3Ctd%20width%3D80%25%20valign%3Dtop%20style%3D%27border%3Asolid%20%23e3e3e3%201.0pt%3Bbackground%3Awhite%3B%20padding%3A8px%208px%208px%2015px%3B%20font-size%3A%20regular%3B%20line-height%3A1.5em%3B%27%3E%0A%09%09%3Ca%20href%3D%22https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FCalling-Recording-Reduction-Microphone-YouTube%2Fdp%2FB07Q4V1D5Z%2F%22%20target%3D%22_blank%22%3E%3Ch4%3EAusdom%20Full%20HD%201080p%20Webcam%20%28%2440%29%3C%2Fh4%3E%3C%2Fa%3E%0A%3Cp%3E%0AThis%20entry%20from%20Ausdom%20boasts%20some%20impressive%20features%20for%20its%20price%20%E2%80%93%20namely%2C%20the%20ability%20to%20stream%20in%201080p%20%28at%20up%20to%2030%20fps%29.%20It%E2%80%99s%20a%20good%20option%20if%20you%E2%80%99re%20a%20new%20streamer%2C%20or%20if%20you%E2%80%99re%20looking%20for%20an%20affordable%20secondary%20camera%20to%20add%20another%20angle%20to%20your%20streams.%3C%2Fp%3E%0A%3Cp%3E%0A%3Cb%3EFeatures%3A%20%3C%2Fb%3E%0A%3Cul%3E%0A%20%09%3Cli%20style%3D%22font-weight%3A%20400%3B%22%3E1080p30%20streaming%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%20%09%3Cli%20style%3D%22font-weight%3A%20400%3B%22%3EAutofocus%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%20%09%3Cli%20style%3D%22font-weight%3A%20400%3B%22%3EGlass%20lens%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%20%09%3Cli%20style%3D%22font-weight%3A%20400%3B%22%3E90%C2%B0%20FOV%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%20%09%3Cli%20style%3D%22font-weight%3A%20400%3B%22%3EBuilt-in%20dual%20mics%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%3C%2Ful%3E%0A%09%09%3C%2Ftd%3E%0A%09%3C%2Ftr%3E%0A%09%3Ctr%3E%0A%09%09%3Ctd%20width%3D20%25%20valign%3Dtop%20style%3D%27border%3Asolid%20%23e3e3e3%201.0pt%3Bbackground%3Awhite%3B%20padding%3A8px%208px%208px%2015px%3B%27%3E%3Ca%20class%3D%22anchor-spacing-class%22%20name%3D%22microsoft-lifeCam%22%3E%3Cimg%20src%3D%22https%3A%2F%2Fdl4ih61pxf6wa.cloudfront.net%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2019%2F03%2F20194203%2FMicrosoft-Lifecam-Studio.jpg%22%20alt%3D%22Microsoft%20Lifecam%20Studio%20for%20Business%22%20height%3D%22195%22%20width%3D%22132%22%3E%3C%2Fa%3E%0A%09%09%3C%2Ftd%3E%0A%3Ctd%20width%3D80%25%20valign%3Dtop%20style%3D%27border%3Asolid%20%23e3e3e3%201.0pt%3Bbackground%3Awhite%3B%20padding%3A8px%208px%208px%2015px%3B%20font-size%3A%20regular%3B%20line-height%3A1.5em%3B%27%3E%3Ca%20href%3D%22https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FMicrosoft-LifeCam-Studio-for-Business%2Fdp%2FB004ABO7QI%22%20target%3D%22_blank%22%3E%3Ch4%3EMicrosoft%20Lifecam%20Studio%20for%20Business%20%28%2460%29%3C%2Fh4%3E%3C%2Fa%3E%0A%3Cp%3E%0ABuilt%20for%20business%2C%20this%20webcam%20delivers%201080p30%20live%20streaming%20at%20a%20low%20price.%20It%E2%80%99s%20also%20equipped%20with%20Microsoft%E2%80%99s%20TrueColor%20Technology%2C%20which%20automatically%20controls%20exposure%20for%20brighter%2C%20more%20colorful%20video.%0A%3Cp%3E%0A%3Cb%3EFeatures%3C%2Fb%3E%3A%0A%3Cul%3E%0A%20%09%3Cli%20style%3D%22font-weight%3A%20400%3B%22%3E1080p30%20streaming%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%20%09%3Cli%20style%3D%22font-weight%3A%20400%3B%22%3EAutofocus%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%20%09%3Cli%20style%3D%22font-weight%3A%20400%3B%22%3EAutomatic%20exposure%20control%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%20%09%3Cli%20style%3D%22font-weight%3A%20400%3B%22%3EGlass%20lens%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%20%09%3Cli%20style%3D%22font-weight%3A%20400%3B%22%3E75%C2%B0%20FOV%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%20%09%3Cli%20style%3D%22font-weight%3A%20400%3B%22%3E360%C2%B0%20rotation%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%20%09%3Cli%20style%3D%22font-weight%3A%20400%3B%22%3EBuilt-in%20wideband%20mic%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%20%09%3Cli%20style%3D%22font-weight%3A%20400%3B%22%3ETripod%20mount%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%3C%2Ful%3E%0A%09%09%3C%2Ftd%3E%0A%09%3C%2Ftr%3E%0A%09%3Ctr%3E%0A%09%09%3Ctd%20width%3D20%25%20valign%3Dtop%20style%3D%27border%3Asolid%20%23e3e3e3%201.0pt%3Bbackground%3Awhite%3B%20padding%3A8px%208px%208px%2015px%3B%27%3E%3Ca%20class%3D%22anchor-spacing-class%22%20name%3D%22logitech-c920%22%3E%3Cimg%20src%3D%22https%3A%2F%2Fdl4ih61pxf6wa.cloudfront.net%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2019%2F03%2F21105824%2FLogitech-C920.jpg%22%20alt%3D%22Logitech%20C920%22%20height%3D%22117%22%20width%3D%22142%22%3E%3C%2Fa%3E%0A%09%09%3C%2Ftd%3E%0A%3Ctd%20width%3D80%25%20valign%3Dtop%20style%3D%27border%3Asolid%20%23e3e3e3%201.0pt%3Bbackground%3Awhite%3B%20padding%3A8px%208px%208px%2015px%3B%20font-size%3A%20regular%3B%20line-height%3A1.5em%3B%27%3E%0A%09%09%3Ca%20href%3D%22https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FLogitech-C920S-Webcam-Privacy-Shutter%2Fdp%2FB07K95WFWM%2F%22%20target%3D%22_blank%22%3E%3Ch4%3ELogitech%20C920%20HD%20Pro%20Webcam%20%28%2470%29%3C%2Fh4%3E%3C%2Fa%3E%0A%3Cp%3E%0AThe%20Logitech%20C920%20is%20one%20of%20the%20most%20popular%20webcams%20on%

Stepping it up ($90–$130)

Businesses looking to stream might want to start with a webcam that offers better quality, faster frame rates, and wider FOVs than lower-priced cams.

Taking your streaming to the next level

If you’re interested in live streaming as a potential career, or your business’s streaming needs evolve, it may be worth adding a hardware encoder to your setup. A hardware encoder is a device purpose-built for video streaming, capturing, recording – or all three. As dedicated appliances, hardware encoders often perform better than software encoders (i.e., the program you use on your computer to stream or record). That’s because software encoders have to share resources with your operating system and any active processes.

Check out our popular Pearl Mini and Pearl-2 hardware encoders. These powerful, all-in-one video production systems support webcams as well as DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and more, giving you the tools you need to live stream like a pro.Epiphan

Make your streams something to behold

Versatile and reliable, Epiphan Pearl-2 and Pearl Mini all-in-one video production systems make it easy to create professional-quality live streams that are sure to engage your viewers.Discover the power of Pearl

    The Logitech C920 is over $200 on Amazon. You have it priced at $70?

    • Michael Monette

      Prices on Amazon can fluctuate widely (use a price tracker like camelcamelcamel or Keepa to see what I mean). Major discrepancies like you’re seeing now tend to happen when Amazon’s own stock of an item is depleted, so the platform defaults to showing the price set by third-party sellers.

      The C920 should generally be around $70 USD (per Logitech’s MSRP) under normal circumstances. With unprecedented numbers of people working from home, there’s huge demand for webcams right now – especially popular models like the C920. Amazon can’t match this demand, which leaves only what third-party sellers have in stock (at whatever price points they choose).

    Which camera do you recommend for live streaming dance fitness classes?

    • Michael Monette

      Hi Elizabeth,

      The Logitech C930 is a good bet since it features a wider field of view (90 degrees). For an upgrade pick, the Logitech Brio Ultra HD webcam offers superior video quality and an adjustable FOV up to 90 degrees.
