Logitech C920 Pro HD Webcam
Bought the Logitech C920 Pro HD Webcam during Lazada’s Online Tech Show for S$108.05. The usual retail price is S$149. During the flash sale, it was discounted to S$119. After deducting Lazada’s voucher of S$5 and the shop’s voucher of 5% off (S$5.95), I ended up with S$108.05.
The upgraded model to this is the Logitech C922 Pro Stream 1080p Webcam which was released back in 2016. Logitech C922 retails for S$199 on Lazada while on Hachi.tech, it retails for S$159 as they are having a promotion.
When I googled, I only can find four differences between the Logitech C920 and Logitech C922.
- C922 can capture 720p at 60fps
- C922 comes with a capture software
- C922 is better in low light conditions
- C922 comes with a tripod
So all the above doesn’t really matter to me since I will be using it purely for work purposes (Zoom call), so I am happy with 1080p at 30 fps.
I heard the capture software is buggy and gimmicky, so I will probably not install it even if I got the C922. I will rely on Zoom’s settings instead.
My room has a lot of light, and I don’t need a low light feature since my calls are mostly in the afternoon, bright and sunny.
I have plenty of small tripods at home, and since Logitech C920 also comes with a tripod mount, I can use any tripod on it as well.
I decided to save the S$50 and go with the Logitech C920 instead.
I think this camera has been in the market since 2012, which explains the USB-A connection rather than USB-C.
Both Logitech C920 and Logitech C922 support tripod mounting but only Logitech C922 comes with a free tripod in the packaging.
There are many ways you can adjust the mounting angle on the Logitech C920.
Previously, if you read my Our Play & Work From Home Setup, you will notice that all our computers are only in one room, hence, both Li Xiang and I will not be able to work together inside a room as we need to take calls from time to time.
So all this while, I have been working in the Living Room where I can open my MacBook Pro easily if I need to access the webcam.
But since I have shifted my standing desk to another room and using the Razer Core X to support my triple monitors, I need a dedicated webcam.
It is a hassle to disconnect my eGPU and use my MacBook Pro webcam. Because when I do that, the applications I used will crash, even though I “safely remove the eGPU”.
