During this work from home time where everybody needs a webcam for video conference, it was hard finding popular brand webcams, so I decided to try other brands. I was surprised to see a familiar brand, Amcrest. My security cameras are Amcrest, so I decided to try Amcrest webcam as well expecting the same quality. I’ve been using this webcam for 4 days already and I am impressed.

Amcrest Webcam Review: Design

Starting with the quality of the camera itself, the unit is well built and sturdy. The frame is a nice, sleek carbon plastic in all black. 

The convenient foldable design allows you to easily take it anywhere, with dimensions of 4.53 x 4.53 x 2.68 inches and of much better build quality than the Victure Webcam

Amcrest Webcam Review: Value

Amcrest webcam software: easy to setup and use. Amcrestwebcam gives you a lot of flexibility to install it. Just plug it into your computer and open up the video software you want to use (Zoom/Skype/etc) and it automatically detects the platform as the video/audio source.

The Amcrest doesn’t use its own app to adjust exposure, and zoom, or anything else. this can be a blessing if you are using a PC and maybe need to reduce as many background apps running during gameplay and streaming. But it can also be frustrating because you have to utilize options that are built into your streaming software that is very run of the mill.

Amcrest Camera Setup:

The mount doesn’t hold well on the top of a monitor when trying to adjust the camera to either side. Not a big problem but it would be nice to be able to lock it in place a little better.

The Amcrest Webcam when mount on the monitor has no ability to turn/angle to the side. For those of us in multiple monitor environments, this means we can’t have it on the secondary monitor to the side that we do much of our non-critical work on.

This typically means it goes on the monitor with the main tasks. Again not a huge issue but I would have like to have it on the other monitor with the ability to angle about 15 degrees.

Especially, The privacy cover for the Amcrest webcam covers the lens when it is not in use. It’s perfect to help provide security, and peace of mind to anyone, from individuals to large companies. It also helps to protect the lens from dirt and debris to ensure your video remains clear for the life of the camera.

Amcrest Webcam Review: Performance

FOV:90 degrees | Resolution: 1080P |  Framerate: 30FPS

Amcrest Webcam resolution up to 1080p. The future demands quality with online equipment and you will not be left behind with this one. Amcrest Webcam for zoom records video at 30 frames per second which produces a sharp image with no latency in the video. The field of view is 90 degrees.

The only thing this webcam fell short on was the low light quality on videos but I do not know of any camera that is currently in this price range that excels in this area.

Amcrest 1080p webcam review – Logitech C920 comparison:

In the same low lighting, the Logitech C920 was better than the Amcrest. With average lighting, there was some noise in the image but it is unnoticeable in my “picture in picture” style of recording/streaming. When there was bright lighting, the Amcrest webcam was almost on the same level of quality as the Logitech

I did not notice how the colors were a little off on the Amcrest until I put the image beside the Logitech webcam. All of the light tests were done with the default settings on both cameras.

Amcrest Webcam At Amzon For $39.99

I’ve been able to use the mic on it which is great when I’m not wanting to add any other microphones or use a big heavy bulky headset

This is my first webcam, and I’m using it with my desktop computer (a Lenovo Ideacentre 720, running Windows 10). I got the webcam in the mail today, and I used it tonight for my first Skype. It’s plug and play, super easy. The person I was “skyping” said that the picture and sound came through well, so that’s one vote for the camera and microphone working nicely. Mind you, I have no other webcam to compare it to, but I’m happy so far. I’m also happy that the company seems to be from Texas (rather than China), which hopefully will greatly reduce the chance of any weaknesses in the thing that could be exploited by hackers.

Overall, I am loving this webcam. The picture is crisp and clear (after some manual adjustments). The versatility and physical security are great. If you are looking for a webcam, this webcam is an outstanding alternative to those expensive popular brand names. Highly recommended
