Update (11/25 10:00pm): Amazon is now offering the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 for $49.99 shipped again, matching the all-time low from this weekend.
As part of its Gold Box Deal of the Day, Amazon is offering the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 w/ 1080p Widescreen Video Calling and Recording for $49.99 shipped. That’s $50 under the original listing and the best price we’ve seen this highly rated webcam go for.
Not only is it perfect for business calls or for those with systems without cams built-in, but also provides a much higher quality picture than most on-board options. Based on user reports and our own experience, it works great with Macs and will fit on to a number of standard tripod mounts if desired (like this highly rated $10 (Reg. $20) Polaroid mount). However, it will sit on top of most monitors without any additional clamps or clips. It features:
- Full HD 1080p video calls on Skype with sharpest video-call picture; HD 720p video calls on favorite IM services like Yahoo! Messenger and Gmail Voice
- H.264 hardware encoding for faster, smoother HD experiences, OS support- Windows XP x32 / x64, Windows Vista x32 / x64, Windows 7 x32 / x64
- Carl Zeiss optics with premium 20-step autofocus
- Snap pro-quality pics; fast upload to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube
- HD video calls on Windows-based PCs or on any HDTV with HDMI connection from a PC laptop
It is the #1 Best Selling Webcam on Amazon and sits with a 4.5/5 star rating from over 2,140 customers.
