It's not the cheapest time to buy a webcam.

I use a Logitech C920 which i picked up for just under £30 a good few years ago.
It's always been a great cheap webcam.

Since the pandemic it shot up in price on Amazon and currently sits around £130 from Amazon directly.

Most webcams have followed a similar trend, as has pretty much anything necessary for work from home activities.

There are quite a few of those around and sometimes at a "good price". However, are they real Logitech? Quite often not.

I needed a webcam & mic for remote council meetings.

The first two I got from Amazon had good video but rubbish sound. Ended up buying a separate USB microphone - which had a volume control.

Cheers!

I tried one of the cheap-ish Amazon webcams last year, when webcams were in short supply in the lockdown and Logitechs were unavailable. It was absolutely rubbish and I returned it.

When a company with an excellent reputation as a Raspberry Pi supplier offered a webcam, I bought one and it has been excellent with good quality audio and video. Although marketed as a Raspberry Pi add-on, it works fine on a PC. This webcam costs £32.

That's not a bad price. Looks similar to the one I have which is only 720p but mic sounds like I am in a tunnel I have been told.

I've ordered it based on your recommendation and some of the reviews.
