Applications such as Skype have revolutionized the way of communicating via PC, smartphone and tablet thanks to the possibility of seeing each other in a video call; the protagonists of this revolution are certainly the webcams, video and audio devices now ubiquitous in the equipment of PCs and notebooks. Whereas before it was necessary to buy very expensive teleconferencing systems to be able to talk remotely with other people, now an Internet connection, a program and a webcam are enough to see each other and talk, reducing the distances between people. If in laptops the webcam is now integrated into the monitor body, in the case of a desktop PC you will need to buy one suitable for your purposes.
In this guide I will show you the features it must have a good modern PC webcam for making video calls with Skype or other programs, with a collection of webcams that you can buy on offer.


Characteristics of a good webcam


In order to take advantage of Skype and other programs with video call support (Facebook Messenger on all) I recommend that you only view webcams that have this type of characteristics:

  • Resolution for modern standads, it only focuses on webcams with support for 720p resolution or even better 1080p; in the latter case make sure you have enough speed on the Internet (at least 12 megs in download and 1 meg in upload) to be able to handle the call in high definition. Ignore any webcam with low resolutions (VGA or less), now useless.
  • Autofocus: make sure that the webcam you choose has autofocus (autofocus), so you can always center the frame in focus and avoid blurry shots.
  • Microphone: if the webcam integrates the microphone you will have one less expense to make, since your voice will be captured by the webcam itself while you make the video call. Some models integrate 2 microphones, so as to capture even better the voice and sounds of the environment.
  • Luci: some webcams also integrate lighting lights into the body, designed for making calls in the dark.
  • Personally I find them annoying in the long run, better to use the room light or a desk lamp rather than having these LEDs shot in the face while you call. On the other hand, the operating LED is fundamental, so as to immediately understand if the webcam is on and working.
  • Attachment or support: most webcams have an interlocking system, designed to be used on the top of any PC monitor; other models have a dedicated base so that they can be placed on the desk.
  • Compatibility: virtually all webcams are compatible with Windows, but many models also have good support for Mac systems, the FaceTime app (Apple's alternative to Skype) and Linux systems.
  • In the vast majority of cases, therefore, it will not be necessary to install any driver, as the latter is already available in the operating system.
  • Connection: all webcams have a USB 2.0 cable, which can be easily connected to one of the free ports on the back of a PC case. Some models also have wireless connectivity, using the home WiFi network as a means of communication with the PC; these devices are often sold as security cameras, but can also be used as webcams when needed.
