While the sound quality may not be top-notch, the built-in microphone effectively reduces background noise during calls and conferences.
This is a pricier webcam,with advanced AI features that justify the cost. It automatically frame faces, even for multiple guests, which works incredibly well. The autofocus is also AI-powered and consistently accurate. The webcam captures sharp 1080p visuals at up to 60fps and rich audio thanks to dual noise-canceling microphones. The lens offers multiple fields of view up to 115 degrees, with HDR to balance bright backgrounds and dark foregrounds.

Additionally, the Poly Studio P5 includes an integrated privacy shutter that you can activate by twisting the lens housing.
The C310 is a basic low-cost webcam that performs its basic functions adequately. Its resolution maxes out at 720p, but the frame rate of 30fps is satisfactory, able to maintain natural-looking skin tones. Images are somewhat indistinct and grainy, and the mono microphone produces clear audio. Overall, the webcam’s quality is well balanced to its low price.
The Logitech C920 HD Pro is the best 1080p webcam available for under £100, as it has a CMOS sensor that delivers high-quality images, a responsive autofocus, and a five-element, all-glass lens.

Additionally, the versatile stand works as a monitor clip or a desktop stand.
The Taxon is reasonably priced for a 2K webcam and image quality is decent for the money. You get a middling 80-degree field of view, stereo microphones, a physical privacy shutter and the mount is a regular monitor clip with a tripod thread. Autofocus works well with very little of the hunting you often see with other webcams.
Logitech’s StreamCam uses a USB-C instead of the traditional USB-A and delivers smooth 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second.

The webcam features auto-framing, image stabilization, and customizable color balance, but the cable is a bit short.

Additionally, the camera has AI capabilities that can track your face as it moves around, and this feature works exceptionally well. The camera supports Windows 10’s Hello facial login, but it doesn’t have a built-in microphone and it’s pricier than alternatives.
