With more and more people doing Podcasts and streaming games, the need for a solid, dependable, and easy to use Webcam has never been greater. Thankfully the Logitech C922 Pro Stream Webcam is a great and affordable option for users of all stages.
Prices at $99.99 the unit offers full 1080 HD streaming at 30 FPS and 60 FPS at 720P. The setup was very easy as the stylish unit easily affixed to my monitor and was connected with a USB cable in no time at all. Users can also use the built in stand should they wish to take this route vs mounting atop a monitor but it easily moves between locales.
I used the camera with both XSplit and Shadowplay to do some commentary on some games I was recording and streaming and it setup with ease and captured and streamed great video quality. I also noted that the unit comes with three months of Premium XSplit membership for those who wish to take advantage of this offer.
There are two microphones on either side of the camera though I did use my desk microphone for most of my recording it is nice to note that there are amble options for users who do not have the hardware already; the C922 offers simple plug and go functionality for those looking to get started without investing in multiple hardware pieces.
What really impressed me was the ability to do our weekly Skewedcasts as I thought it would be nice to capture the shows with video as well as audio as we have done for ages. The C922 easily worked with Skype and recorded great video with ease. I also liked how well it worked in low light as when recording in the evening; I often prefer not to turn on a lot of lighting to reduce background glare and distractions.
The Logitech C922 has been a very easy to use, reliable and effective addition as it has worked amazingly well with multiple streaming and desktop applications as well as with multiple games. There have been no issues or performance issues to date and I look forward to incorporating it into our coverage of many upcoming games as well as continuing to use it during our Skewedcasts and other coverage.
