Although we're gradually starting to see more people commuting to the office, it doesn't mean that the need for webcams has fallen off the cliffs. With hybrid working arrangements on the rise, it's more important than ever to look your best in work video calls.
#1 Best Overall: Logitech C920s Pro HD
Known as "the best webcam for most people", the Logitech C920s Pro HD stands out from the other webcams because you get a more bang for your buck including excellent picture quality, dual omnidirectional mics and many more features.
In the package, you're getting a privacy shutter, a 5-foot USB-A cable and a user manual. According to reviewers, the adjustable base is pretty sturdy. If you're not keeping it hooked to your external monitor, you can sit the C920s Pro HD on your desk or attach it to your laptop's screen.
The Logitech C920s Pro HD records in 1080p at 30 frames per second. Thanks to the glass lens, you get clear picture quality with realistic-looking foreground and background. Even on cloudy days, the webcam produced sharp videos with fairly accurate colours.
Other welcome features include a 78-degree field of view, autofocus, colour intensity and brightness that can be adjusted via the Camera Setting app. The two omnidirectional mics give the C920s Pro HD an edge over the other webcams as it ensures your voice isn't competing with the background noise, so your voice is clear during calls.

#2 Best for Content Creation: Logitech StreamCam
The Logitech StreamCam not only has your back during regular video calls, conferences and live streams, but it's also the perfect webcam if you're an avid content creator.
The webcam comes with a tripod, a monitor mount and a 5-foot USB-C 3.1 cable. Out of the two stands, the monitor mound is more flexible and supports plenty of room for vertical tilt and panning from left to right. Sporting a cubic design, the StreamCam can be mounted either horizontally or vertically. The presence of grooves on the side of the camera lets you rotate the device quickly if need be.
The Logitech StreamCam has an appealing 1080p/60fps resolution. This is better for streaming content because you're getting vibrant, true-to-life pictures and a buttery smooth video all at once. Similar to the C920S Pro HD, the StreamCam has a 78-degree field of view.
Other cool features include AI facial tracking which helps with auto-focusing your face through various movements and correcting exposure so the webcam adjusts the lighting to match the environment. The image stabilisation comes in handy as it prevents the camera from shaking even if you bumped it. Despite having omnidirectional mics and a noise reduction filter, some reviewers feedback that the Logitech StreamCam picked up subtle movements like shifting in your chair to a certain degree.

#3 Best for Office Use: Logitech C930e
Need a webcam to put your best face forward? The Logitech C930e is ideal for video conferencing with its exceptional mic quality and wide viewing angles.
One thing we like about the C930e is it comes with a flippable privacy shade which comes in handy for those working in the biz industry. It has an integrated tripod threading and a mounting clip which fits on any display or laptop.
It has a 90-degree field of view so it's an excellent option if you frequently have presentations or business video conferencing. The Logitech C930e has 1080/30fps resolution, as such, you get high-quality videos and uber-accurate colouring.
Reviewers rated mic quality to be outstanding. The omnidirectional mics capture crystal clear audio. What's more, these mics are super sensitive to the point that it picks up voices from roughly 9 metres away which will be useful for group presentations. The Logitech C930e has a few extra goodies which include anti-flicker, auto/manual focus, text overlays and effects, a virtual camera and a priority setting that maintains FPS or correct brightness levels.

#4 Best for Streaming: Elgato Facecam
Offering a great balance of features and performance, the Elgato Facecam is worth considering if you create streaming content for all kinds of platforms. Be warned that it lacks a microphone.
What's interesting about the Facecam is that it has eight built-in lenses for a supposedly different purpose. The aspherical surface of the lens is said to maximise image perimeter sharpness. Using a low dispersion glass material ensures constant transmittance over the entire colour spectrum while simultaneously reducing chromatic aberration and enhancing sharpness, contrast and tonality. Covering the lens with an anti-reflective coating preserves details in the image and prevents flare. The IR Cut Filter blocks infrared light from disrupting the sensor.
The Elgato Facecam supports an 82-degree field of view that's wider than other webcams on our list. It also has a fixed focus which keeps an eye on what you're doing. Plus, the Facecam optimises indoor lighting and includes a Sony Sensor for detecting ambient environments.
There are other advantages the Facecam has for streamers. Elgato has an intuitive ISO reader which controls the exposure levels of footage. This will be beneficial for streamers when it comes to personalising their setup. Even more, these adjustments can be saved to a default setting so you don't have to tweak it again. For creators who own a Stream Deck, they can swiftly make video altercations with just a push of a button, switch the current room lighting to a pre-programmed setting and even zoom into your face.

#5 Best for Video Quality: Razer Kiyo Pro
The Razer Kiyo Pro is a webcam that delivers a fantastic performance given how much flexibility you want your viewers to see.
This webcam is designed to be durable thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 that's both scratch and damage-resistant. The plastic clip system that it comes with allows you to choose where you want it to be set up: propped on your desk, on top of your monitor or on a standard tripod.
It delivers 1080p video at 60 frames per second, so if you're looking for uncompromised quality then look no further. The Razer Kiyo Pro also offers HDR which reduces the frame rate from 60fps to 30fps to enhance shadows and highlights.
A great feature that Razer included is the adjustable field of view which lets you change between presets such as Narrow (80-degree), Medium (90-degree) and Wide (103-degree). This greatly impressed many reviewers as the webcam lets you see more of yourself or your work. In addition to a sensor and autoexposure capabilities to compensate for harsh and dim lighting, the Kiyo Pro has an automatic white balance that preserves more natural-looking skin tones.

The best webcam doesn't have to be the most expensive on the market or is packed to the brim with features. As long as it fits your needs and at the same time improves the quality of the video, that's all we can ask for.
