Why get a webcam for streaming?

Before explaining what makes the Logitech C922 Pro a great choice, it's worth noting why a webcam is important to begin with if you're a streamer. Connecting with your audience is an important part of streaming, and while voice-only can be enough, streams are typically much more interactive if the people watching you can see your face and see how you react to things. Therefore, you need a webcam if you plan to take streaming seriously, and you'll ideally want one with the power to stream in high-definition (HD) or close to it. After all, it'll be hard for your audience to get immersed with the stream if your face is blurry.

The three main reasons why a Logitech C922 Pro is a great choice are quality, versatility, and price. When it comes to quality, the Logitech C922 Pro isn't the best webcam on the market, but it gets the job done. You can stream at full HD at 30 frames per second (FPS), or at 720p and 60 FPS. Ultimately, both options are great, and having the choice is nice.

Another big benefit of using the Logitech C922 Pro is that it's capable of working with pretty much every streaming software around, including XSplit, OBS, Streamlabs, Elgato and Game Capture. Additionally, the price is quite excellent at $72, making it an affordable option when compared to more luxurious webcams.

One last thing to note is that the Logitech C922 Pro is very easy to set up and configure, which makes it a friendly choice for new streamers.

Best of the best

If you want a webcam that can push your stream quality to the next level, you want to look at the Logitech BRIO Ultra HD Webcam. The big difference between the BRIO and the C922 Pro is that the BRIO is capable of streaming in full 4K and is the very first webcam capable of doing so. This is hardly necessary to run a good stream, but if you really want to look the best you can for your audience, there's no better choice than the Logitech BRIO.
