Logitech has been successful in the webcam market for years, the most famous model is probably the C920. With the StreamCam, the company is now particularly targeting streamers. For example, the Logitech StreamCam offers face tracking and a 9:16 mode for Instagram or Facebook stories. Images can be recorded in FullHD at 60 frames per second. To find out if streamers can be happy with the Logitech StreamCam, we took a closer look at it.

Chic design, regression in functionality
No matter if black or grey, I would say the Logitech StreamCam is a very nice camera. I like the design, even if it is a matter of taste.
Although Logitech has years of experience with webcams, the company has taken a step with the StreamCam that I can’t understand. Most other webcams simply have a tripod thread integrated into the monitor mount, and Logitech has done the same. However, this is not the case with the StreamCam. Instead, two mounts are included in the scope of delivery, which can or must be replaced as needed. So there is a monitor holder and a tripod holder. Even though the change is easy and quick, it is still one that might be superfluous. And the second holder will certainly disappear in the depths of their rummage boxes for many people.
