In this video I unbox and review a pair of Logitech C920 HD Pro 1080p Webcams I purchased from NewEgg to replace my existing Microsoft Lifecam Studio HD and my Lifecam Cinema. This camera produces stunning picture quality that I didn’t think was possible from a webcam. It rivals my big Canon 5D Mark II for video quality in many respects. The only down side is the software doesn’t handle configuration two cameras connected to the same computer. The cameras work but only one is configurable by the software. I also thought the audio quality on the microphone was beyond crappy by anyones standards but I’m not worried since my audio source always comes from somewhere else. In this video you will get to hear a comparison of the audio quality versus my rode video mic and the Lifecam studio.

I use OBS (open broadcaster) to display the camera video in a controlled way to give a good comparison. I also test focus and light conditions and found that the logitech beats out the Lifecam in both of those areas. But don’t get me wrong the Lifecam is no slouch and does a fantastic job. The lens on the Logitech camera is Carl Zeiss and he doesn’t put his name on crap so you know what you’re getting.

I plan to use these videos for picture and picture and rear view of my 3 screens while gaming in future game play videos and also use them on my Ultimaker 3D printing videos to give better time lapses of prints I do overnight. Overall I’m very impressed with the build quality and the video quality of these cameras and can’t wait to put them to work on my future videos!

KittyCaTz56 says:

Just got this camera and there is no mention anywhere that it has a Carl Zeiss lense. The image quality isn’t as good as my old 3.3mp Nikon CoolPix 990. I wonder if it may have been damaged in transit because the image quality is not good at all.

Tobiasz Karoń says:

Can you lock the focus on C920 so it won’t adjust automatically all the time? I hate cameras juggling with autofocus when there’s no need to do so.

joel T says:

how come you have such a crisp image everytime my image is fullscreen its so blurry?

James Rice says:

Say can the Logitech record audio without video?

Tobiasz Karoń says:

About the exposure-framerate thing:

When you change exposure to get brighter image, the webcams change the time they let every frame to collect light on the matrix.

The longer they keep their virtual shutter open, the brighter the image. If this time exceeds 1/30 of a second, the webcam will start reducing the framerate to get more time to expose each frame.

Marc Hankel says:

Great review! Thank you!

Jake P says:
