Amcrest Webcam









  • Great Price
  • Sharp Picture
  • Large Focus Distance


  • No software for customisation
  • So-so build quality

We also own Logitech C920 pro and Logitech Brio cameras, and this Amcrest webcam stands beside them proudly, for a fraction of the price. If you are looking for a camera that will work for remote learning or teleconferences for work, this is a great solution.

Unboxing Amcrest camera 1080P: 

There wasn’t much inside the box: web camera, privacy cover, and instruction manual. Additionally, the instruction manual was easy to understand. It included a “Frequently Asked Questions” section on the back that assisted you in troubleshooting any minor inconveniences that prevented the camera from working.


Amcrest webcam HD is a pretty tiny device, which makes it portable, with dimensions of 4.8 x 2.7 x 2 inches, and of much better build quality than the Taotuo webcam. The design of the camera stand makes installing/mounting the camera very easy and gives you lots of flexibility. Basically, the old school “clips” that these cameras used to have has been replaced by an adjustable arm that can affix to pretty much anything and can also stand up on its’ own. We thought the design, in general, was really cool and useful.

Price and availability:

Amcrest webcam setup: easy to setup and use. In all seriousness, there really isn’t anything that you need to do to get this installed. Once you remove and unwrap the camera from the package, all you need to do is plug in the USB to your laptop and let the driver connect. 

For feeling secure, the Amcrest camera 1080P has 2 lights on either side that light up when the camera is being used. We like this for security so that you know when the camera is on if you were not paying attention. It also comes with a cover that you attach to the camera so that when it’s not in use you can cover the lens and you don’t have to worry about something being able to see through your camera.

Amcrest webcam setup with the computer: 

Amcrest webcam software:  Compatible with WinXP/Vista/Win7/Win8/Win10 and other operating systems and supports the major live broadcast platform. It can be used with any laptops, LCD monitors, desktops, or tripods.

We particularly liked the web camera’s ability to swivel vertically, allowing you to adjust the angle of the video. It has a wide swivel range, but it doesn’t aim upward as much as it can adjust downward.

Image Quality and Sound:

FOV: 70 degrees | Resolution 1080p |  Framerate: 30fps  

Amcrest webcam AWC201-B resolution up to 1080p support at 30fps.  The lens angle of the camera is pretty wide, a bit wider than others we have tried or used in the past. That may be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your needs, but just know that this is going to capture a lot of area.

Amcrest webcam review: 

Occasionally, lighting is an issue when it gets dark because the camera quality isn’t phenomenal. Even with proper lighting, there is a subtle graininess to the video. In dim lighting, the graininess is slightly more apparent. With our lamp turned on at night, the camera adjusts terribly to the harsh light and makes her face look white. She must sit further back for the features of her face to be more recognizable. Overall, the camera’s ability to adjust to light is decent. It isn’t as good as a phone camera, but it is acceptable to work with inside of a consistently lit environment.

Amcrest Webcam AWC201-B with Built-in Microphone:  Built-in dual noise-reducing microphone, superior stereo audio, which allows for clear and natural sound recording. It’s the best choice of video combined with a built-in microphone to provide the best video conference experience even in a noisy environment.

Camera works well is at a fair price and in stock right now during the “COVID-19 pandemic”. I purchased this for my kids online schooling and Zoom meetings. Compared to my Logitech 922 Pro the Amcrest performs very well. The picture quality is comparable although the Logitech is a little clearer, that being said the Logitech is twice the cost. I own and have installed many Amcrest products and do recommend them regularly to others.

Customer Reviews


The Amcrest 1080P Webcam is very easy to use, is designed well, has a good video quality, and performs as it is described to. Our biggest complaint would be the mount. Amcrest webcam HD is not nearly as solid and firm as the Logitech mount. It just doesn’t quite grab the monitor very strongly. This is one thing Logitech does better. But it shouldn’t be an issue for casual users. Lastly, we think that the camera does its job for its price. It is a functional and decent webcam to use when you want to show your face online or through video calls

  1. Thanks for your post. Another item is that to be a photographer consists of not only trouble in catching award-winning photographs but in addition hardships in getting the best digicam suited to your needs and most especially issues in maintaining the grade of your camera. This can be very genuine and clear for those photography enthusiasts that are into capturing the actual nature’s captivating scenes – the mountains, the actual forests, the particular wild or even the seas. Going to these exciting places definitely requires a photographic camera that can meet the wild’s severe environments.
