Hello Small business owners!
Do you have to buy the most expensive webcam to use in video web conferencing? Not necessarily. There are many affordable options available without spending a fortune.
The more expensive webcams have a high resolution and frames per second. The higher the resolution - the better quality the videos and pictures will be. Faster frames per second will ensure your streaming video is smooth and less choppy.
The most common resolution for webcams is 640x800. The minimum resolution for satisfactory quality is 320x240. When choosing a webcam, I recommend buying the highest resolution you can afford so you'll be happy with the video quality.
There are affordable webcams that use a USB port or even be wireless. Just make sure your computer or laptop is compatible with the type of camera you choose.
More often than not, new laptops will have built in web cameras. But it may not work the best with your video web conferencing software. That's why it's important to test out your webcam before making a final decision.
Web cameras with a glass lens are more expensive than plastic lens cameras. But the extra cost is well worth it because you'll get a more accurate and higher quality picture.
Also, cameras with automatic infrared lighting and a built in microphone for hands free use is an added plus.
And lastly, the best web cameras have a motion detection face tracking function that makes your video appear more natural.
There are many affordable video web conferencing cameras to choose from. Good luck in choosing the best webcam for your business and budget.
