Logitech C920 Webcam Review

The C920 uses a plastic clip to hold your monitor. This clip functions as a decent holder when you need to place it on your desk. At the bottom of the seat, there is a standard tripod mounting hole, convenient for when you need a more stable platform. I hope the holder can be removed because it will make packaging easier.

Setting up C920 involves inserting it via USB and launching your video application – complicated, I know. Once set, the C920 can capture the various type of resolutions. Also support recording in 720p at 30fps. The display area extends up to 78 degrees and can be narrowed down if you want to be more focused when you stream alone.

Give enough light, and the C920 emits strong image performance. The details are sharp, clear, and the colors are bright. Also, the autofocus is fast and accurate; Even though I was pacing in my room, it never failed to lock focus properly wherever I moved.

In a dim environment, the C920 relies on Logitech’s RightLight 2 technology to maintain image clarity. RightLight 2 automatically adjusts the brightness, contrast, and color settings according to the detected lighting conditions. The algorithm works very well in practice, producing images of stars in low light. But keep in mind that this is not the best we’ve ever seen; That honor belongs to Logitech Brio. Compared to Brio, the C920 produces darker stains under the same lighting conditions. With that, Brio is more than double the cost so we won’t be anchored too many points here.

Fortunately, this problem can be fixed through the Logitech Camera Setup application. It gives easy-to-use slider adjustments for brightness, contrast, color intensity, and white balance. With that, changing the white balance – something you might want to do – involves turning off the automatic calibration. That means that if the lighting color changes (eg, from daylight to room light), you have to adjust the settings manually.

An integrated stereo microphone is equivalent to an ordinary laptop microphone, in other words, just not bad. My voice sounds loud and slightly itchy. If audio quality is essential, use a special microphone if possible.

Most streamers use background replacement software when streaming, so while Logitech doesn’t list the C920 as an officially supported device, We still test it with ChromaCam. The C920 surprisingly works very well. Seldom background items have escaped.

The C920 sold for $ 99 when it was released, but hasn’t been listed at that price since 2013. Currently, the C920 is often found for $ 50 or less. Instead, its successor, the Logitech C922, costs $ 89. Although the C922 does have a better white balance, this slight increase is not enough to justify the premium. Until Logitech stops production or higher value products arrive, the C920 will remain as the best overall webcam.

The Bad > Iffy white balance, Stand not detachable

The Good > Great image quality, Affordable

Conclusion > Recommended for streamer
