Depstech plug-and-play 1080p HD USB webcam with mic and tripod (opens in new tab)

Delivers 1080p video up to 30 frames per second. Includes automatic light correction and a 65-degree wide viewing angle. Dual mics help capture more natural sound. Comes with a tripod stand and a privacy cover. Plug and play and doesn't need drivers.

You get more than just a webcam with this purchase, too. For one thing the webcam comes with a privacy cover. If you're worried about hackers or companies somehow using your webcam to look at you when the webcam is not in use, you can protect your privacy by covering the lens when you're done with it. The cam also comes with a tripod stand. The adjustable tripod lets you place the camera flat on your desk or near your computer so you can get a perfect angle and you don't have to block your screen or anything like that.

The webcam generates video at 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution at 25 to 30 frames per second. It has a 65-degree wide viewing angle, and it captures everything in front of it in a clear, smooth image. It even works in dimly lit environments thanks to automatic light correction. The dual mics help keep your voice sounding clear as well. More than one mic means it can filter out some of the background noise and help you sound even more natural.

You also don't have to worry about the setup with this webcam too much. It's a plug-and-play device. You won't need to download any new drivers or software to get it to work. As long as you have a USB port, you have everything you need to get this webcam working. It works with most video apps like Skype and Zoom and YouTube, and it has a wide compatibility with platforms. Use it on operating systems as old as Windows XP, the Mac OS, and more.
