Believe it or not, even the most expensive laptops have lackluster webcams. For example: The latest Apple MacBook Pro’s webcam only captures video at Standard HD at 720p. This would’ve been considered cutting-edge and sharp in 2010. However, it’s 2020 and webcams have gotten much better.
Take this KFF Webcam. It captures video at an impressive Full HD at 1080p and 30FPS (frames per second). And best of all, it’s on sale for just $20, or 50 percent off at Amazon.
Sharp video clarity
Normally going for $40, this wallet-friendly KFF Webcam streams high quality and smooth HD video with wide viewing angles, so it can capture more of you and your background. It also adjusts white levels to give you the best possible light, even if you don’t have a great light source.
Meanwhile, its built-in microphone reduces ambient and background noise, so those video calls, live streams, meetings and online lessons will sound as good as they look.
Amazon shoppers are seriously impressed with this little guy. “The build quality appears to be solid and the mount fits snugly at top my monitor bezel, with a good range of camera angle adjustment. The camera looks very nice and is quality made,” writes a delighted Amazon reviewer. “Positions on my computer holds strong. Other cameras I had always slipped and fell off. This design is so much better. The dual built-in microphones also sounded clean within the full range of volume.”
Plug and play
In addition, the KFF Webcam couldn’t be easier to install and get started, too. All you have to do is clip it to the top of your laptop or computer monitor and plug it into a USB port. And that’s it! It’s compatible with Windows 2000 and up, macOS, iOS and Android devices and even Linux laptops and desktops.
“This is a cute little webcam with fantastic clarity in audio and video. On my windows 10 laptop, it was plug and play,” shares a satisfied shopper. “I really liked the design for the base that helps in placing this webcam quite conveniently at many positions.”
At just $20, this KFF Webcam offers sharp video clarity, full and rich audio and a simple ‘plug-and-play’ setup and installation. And we’re guessing it’s far better than the webcam that came with your laptop.
“This laptop webcam will play in high definition with great sound effects and no distortion. If you are looking for a perfect webcam, it is worth considering buying this one,” adds another five-star reviewer.
