  • The Logitech StreamCam is a new webcam packed with features for content creators.

Logitech today launched its latest webcam, dubbed StreamCam. As the name might suggest, StreamCam is targeted squarely at streamers and creators. But it's more than just the name; StreamCam packs a number of features that may prove attractive to creators, particularly if they're just getting started.

The Logitech StreamCam is fairly compact, sporting a rubberized plastic frame and woven cloth around the lens. The camera can be mounted on your monitor, or attached to a tripod. Moreover, you can switch it between landscape and portrait orientation to record content for the web, or for things like Instagram and Facebook stories.

Where StreamCam gets particularly interesting is when it's combined with the Logitech Capture software. Capture includes scene transitions, text overlays, and different effects that can give your streams a more professional look. The StreamCam also includes auto-tracking to always keep your face in frame, along with image stabilizations, and more.

Down to bare specs, the Logitech StreamCam can max out at a 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second for smooth visuals. It supports a variety of framerates and resolutions below that as well, but 1080p60 is likely to be pretty attractive when combined with its other features. There are also dual mics with noise cancellation, giving you the ability to broadcast in dual-mono or stereo sound.

The Logitech StreamCam is available now for $169.99 (opens in new tab) in the U.S., France, Germany, UK, Spain, and Italy. Logitech says it expects StreamCam to go on sale globally later in 2020.
