Review of the Logitech C920 Webcam

The Logitech C920 Webcam is by far the best webcam I’ve used thus far.

After pluging the camera into my computer the driver installation went painlessly.

I was immediately was struck by the quality of the picture that I was able take.  Crisp, clean and colorful.

I was also pleased to find that the C920 worked seamlessly with XSplit, OBS and other Internet broadcasting programs.

The lens is amazing in this web cam.   Thanks to the focus capabilities, you can easily produce a “Deep of Field” effect which blurs the background while focusing in on the subject.

As well the on board MP4 encoding allowed the camera to be smooth and fluid.   I definitely recommend the Logitech C920 for any vidcasting project.

      Thanks for the comment Christine.

      Your room size has a lot to do with the depth of field. I have about 5 feet of clearance behind my chair, so the background is very blurry.

      If you only have a a foot or 2 behind you, the effect won’t be as pronounced.

      Another option would be to upgrade to a DSLR camera that has DoF options.
