DESIGN

A product has to be appealing and good-looking because the design is the first thing a buyer notice while buying a product.

Logitech SreamCam has a wide box-shaped design with a full HD wide lens placed in the center. It has a live white LED indicator and inbuilt electronic image stabilization which greatly reduces the camera shake while recording. With a 5-foot long cable attached to its back, you can easily connect the device with your PC. It has a dual front-facing microphone, which makes the sound quality so much better.

On the other hand, the Logitech C920 is almost the same as the previous models. The rectangle-shaped single-lens webcam is designed to be mounted over the monitor. This webcam has dual microphones attached to the side in a shape of a slope.

Overall, the Logitech C920 has a relatively traditional design as compared to its competitors. The webcam also enables the user to connect it to a tripod and brackets. It has a non-removable cord that connects the webcam to the PC but it’s made of thin rubber that is easily bendable, which increases the chance of it breaking and putting the webcam out of use. This is the setback of this webcam.

Image and video quality are the most important features of the webcam and hence the most important deciding factor in a webcam.

IMAGE QUALITY

Image and video quality are the most important features of the webcam and hence the most important deciding factor in a webcam.

When we see the image and video quality of the Logitech StreamCam it supports the full HD 1080p at 60 frames per second. It gives an AI-enabled and exposure, resulting in a vibrant and pulsating image. The thing we do not like about this webcam is that it does not allow and support live streaming of the video on other platforms. This is a big set-back for a webcam when its competitors have these features.

Logitech C920’s image quality does not disappoint either. When tested, the webcam surprisingly performed remarkably in a dark room with light coming only from the screen. With 720 pixels resolution at 60fps, the camera provides commendable images and becomes ideal for live streaming and recording videos. The product has seen a major update as previous models failed to perform this majestically in low-light and made the video un-usable for those streaming in dark surroundings. Images that have a resolution of 1080p are rarely taken from a webcam, but again the Logitech C920 is no ordinary webcam.

FEATURES

Logitech StreamCam has some of remarkable features making it one of the perfect webcams. Its highlighting features are its auto adjustable body design and range of recording options making it a top-notch webcam. Moreover, the in-built microphones in the camera are a huge benefit too. They are highly sensitive microphones and can even record menial sounds such as the squeaking of a chair. We also like the unique design of this webcam as it is quite different from the typical design of webcams that Logitech used for its previous webcam. All these features make Logitech StreamCam quite popular among the users.

Logitech C920 has this remarkable feature of the background removal option. The webcam uses the Intelligent Shape Recognition software the removes the background surrounding the user in front of the camera. Although the manufacturers need to work on its proficiency but keeping in mind the fact that this feature is not available in products of this price range, it should be considered as a win. Apart from this, the webcam’s capability to perform remarkably in low light is a commendable feature.
