Great price for what I'd rate as the best consumer web camera going
Great webcam. Perfect for vloggers and Youtubers
Damn this site!
Another product I had no idea I wanted!! X)
it's a good cam! I did however purchase this for about £28 from an Amazon prime deal. still... good price considering its usually £50+
Good camera to be sure - I use it. But mac compatibility is pretty pathetic. Would only recommend for pc users.
not available for delivery god damn it why
Yeah, I bought this due to everyone here saying it was great. Well, video noise what rife in a well lit room so, I returned it.

Surely a faulty item then? I have one and it's exactly how people say it is. Cannot fault it.

​Amazon will do a better lightning deal at some point. Got mine for 30 not to long ago.
Bought from Amazon a few months ago for 50 odd clams and that was a bargain. Use it for online darts

​Nope. I checked and the Logitech software doesn't allow for data rate changes, so, it's due to low data rates. Google it.
I got mine for £29.99 on promotion from Amazon UK in December 2014. No chance of getting at that price now. Easily the best web camera I've used and possibly the best out there, especially for the money. No brainer, if you need and can afford then get one.

I use mine on OSX El Capitan, plug and play as far as I remember. Works fine on Skype for me.
Thanks, just reserved one.
Got this - it's a great cam - I paid £42.99 so this is a good deal.
Quality wise it's nowhere near as good as a decent smartphone camera.

paid £28 on Amazon in June 2015, and I've seen it on another lightning deal since then, most likely will again. This is a bargain though.

It's a webcam - not a smartphone cam!

It's a webcam - not a smartphone cam!



What he is arguing, that with all the advances in smartphone cameras, surely someone can do a better webcam for this kind of money. (and I do not mean transmitted but original image) I have seen phones around 100£ with crazy good cameras which put this to shame, and I doubt those need to cost 40£.

But yes this is slowly a dieing breed, as laptops/phones have built ins which are "good enough" and there are less and less desktops around.

All that said it is a good deal for a decent camera.

They excelled once upon a time I paid £30.99. It sits on the top of my monitor and I have never used it!

I have got this one and Microsoft LifeCam Studio, Logitech camera u cannot turn on sides unlike Microsoft device. Also here is no protective cover. Both cameras are full HD, but Microsoft one has got better picture sharpness and auto focus. Also on life cam is much better microphone. I like them both, just guys if you will have same price on both, chose Microsoft device. Thanks.

​You can think what you want, but I checked it before turning.
Nice OP. I bought one 920c a week back for £46 odd, couldnt wait any longer ... Could have saved £8 +.
Anyone know of any other software that can be used for simple recording? My daughter uses it for blogging, but the software is a bit naff, you can't even maximise the window...

​I did too and agree with you..

Mate, you seriously had a faulty one. The 920 is the cam even Video Conference suppliers recommend (when you aren't using their room systems). The 920 and the 930 are excellent cams. You'd use the 930 for a room, and 920 for a solo user.
And on the "software", you only need a "driver" from Logitech. The software that decides what video codec, bitrates etc are the endpoint software apps like Skype, or Vidyo, or Lifesize.. or home user stuff like Curse, or Hangouts via WebRTC.

I've yet to see another top of PC cam beat the 920 yet.

If you're having issues, if you're trying to do a 1080p or 720p @ 60 fps up a standard DSL then its going to look bad.
You'd need to turn things down, but that isn't the camera. 720p at 60 needs about 1.4Mbps for example. Your DSL is likely 800k. Or you got a broken one, or some other PC issue. But if you have the right software and the right bandwidth then the 920 looks fantastic.

Cold, cheap car DVR camera is perfect for a webcam.
I got this 30.99 December 3rd amazon
Anyone here use it for Chaterbate and would recommend it?
i wanted one of these for streaming local views 'out my window' on youtube, but this one won't focus to infinity as designed to focus on people sat at pc in small domestic room. Ones that advertise infinity are cheap china produced garbage that I can't guarantee will work at all or at least work with my free streaming software called wirecast for which the C920 is supposed to. I'm stuck there seems no product out there for me atm. There are videos out there showing you how to take a c920 apart to manually focus to infinity, no chance of getting refund after that though

I know you want to explain it away with things like, "you had a faulty one" or "your DSL is likely 800k"! Well, sorry, it wasn't faulty and my internet is fibre broadband, not DSL. Not sure what that last one means, considering I was recording onto my PC, but, well...ok. And hey, I was using 1080p30 - not exactly taxing.

What you won't get from all the reviews on the internetz is that it deals with colour-space badly and this relates to me because of the colour in my room. Try and find a c920 video on youtube with a strong red colour (plus shadow) and see what it looks like.

If Logitech had allowed you to modify settings properly, and not have to hack it via something like OBS, it may have been a contender. Sadly, it doesn't allow this and can actually crash OBS when you try to alter things. Yes, I did try 3rd party software and no, they didn't provide any unique controls.

I'm willing to be wrong on this as I could do with a simple webcam with good quality images, free of noise.

For a simple web cam free of noise try a PlayStation Eye, can be had for under £3 second hand from Game or CEX...
Granted it resolution is "simple"@ 640×480 pixels @ 60 Hz or 320×240 pixels @ 120 Hz, I have yet to find a better spec cheaper! (it also sports true stereo audio capture)

Yes, made by a company that is funded by the Chinese government - so the firmware probably includes some lovely backdoors for them to spy on you. Does anyone not question why Hikvision is flooding the market with these cheap cameras!?
You need to run a BIOS update on many HP computers otherwise you will have boot issues with this plugged in.
