It’s incredibly important these days to have one of the best business webcams 2021 has to offer as part of your work space. 

That’s because more people are working from home now, so video-conferencing has become more ingrained in the way we handle business and meetings. So, you need a business webcam that will let you be heard and seen clearly and without issue.

These webcams provide excellent quality while not being too pricey. They also come equipped with top-notch microphones that will pick up your voice like you’re in the same room, with many offering noise cancellation or noise rejection to minimize the distraction of background noise. And if you have more general webcam needs, you can also take a look at our best webcams list as well.

720p only

The Microsoft LifeCam Studio is our pick for the best business webcam. As you'd expect from a Microsoft peripheral, this is aimed at professionals with large displays, and offers 1080p recording and 720p live video calling. It rotates 360 degrees, and can be mounted on a tripod. It also features autofocus, which ensures you're always visible. The wideband mic delivers crystal clear audio, and Microsoft’s TrueColor system will shift the exposure dynamically to keep you well lit, making it a great choice for business conferencing and presentations. It integrates with Microsoft's Skype software perfectly as well.

The Logitech G922 Pro Stream features the same classy design as its predecessor, the C920, but also has some key upgrades. For a start, the C922 boasts excellent 1080p video quality, which is great for hosting video calls, and its automatic low-light correction makes it a fantastic cam for streaming with the lights off. It also supports background removal, which is useful if you're taking part in a virtual meeting and you don't want people to see what's in the background (a blessing for people working from home while their kids are off school!).

This is a serious peripheral – one that requires a powerful PC for max settings – but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking bells and whistles. For instance, it comes with 360-degree rotating capabilities and Microsoft’s TrueColor system, which will shift the exposure dynamically to keep you well lit.

Logitech makes brilliant webcams, and the Logitech HD Webcam C310 is a fantastic budget offering, that offers very good image quality for the price. Resolution is just 720p, but for most people that won't be an issue. In fact, if you have an internet connection that struggles with high definition videos, then this is actually a bonus.

Pricey

The 920 comes very close for a lot less cash

The C930e claims to be Logitech's most advanced HD webcam yet, so it isn’t surprising that it's also one of Logitech’s most expensive offerings. However, unlike traditional webcams, which rely on the PC for all the heavy lifting, this unit does the video encoding itself, which should in turn result in better video quality. The wide, 90-degree field of view means it’s well-suited to business video conferencing and presentations. And of course, it’s Skype-certified for PC and Mac.

Not cheap

The Logitech StreamCam is a brilliant business webcam. While it's not primarily designed for business use (it's more for content creators like YouTube streamers), the fact that it offers excellent features like auto-focusing, smart exposure, facial tracking, up to 60fps frame rate, and a flippable design, means it's a great choice for professionals anyway. It's also 1080p, so you get a clearer picture than 720p cameras, and it connects via USB Type-C, so there's faster, more stable, video transfer speeds as well.
