    I call it "Future-proofing"

    This camera is more than most people need...including me. However, in an age when Skype, YouTube, Periscope, Twitch, Hangouts and FaceTime are all the rage, one must be ready for their closeup in the rapidly approaching future. The camera's wide view can cover an entire room. This is great for having the whole family captured in a Skype call during the holidays or special occasions. The software can also zoom in on any area captured in that wide view so that you limit or crop what is included in your video. The high resolution of the camera lets you zoom and crop without losing much quality if any. The camera captures high resolution still images as well, so the camera can be used for capturing pictures of objects for posting on online sale sites or capturing documents if you don't have a scanner. My only complaints are first, the microphone which, while covering a wide area, does not seem very powerful. When recording gaming sessions the mic doesn't pick up my talking unless I talk loud. I may need to tweak settings but I just used an external mic instead. Secondly, the price. This camera is priced over $100 more than most average webcams and $40 or $50 more than next best webcam in the Logitech line. Finally, a very small issue is the camera only tilts up and down and does not swivel left and right. Ultimately, if you don't need crystal clear video (or don't have the upload bandwidth to send it) and you don't need to capture a full room or documents or images...save some money...get the next best in the Logitech line.

    High quality and easy install on both Mac and PC

    No extra software required to get it running on Windows 10 or Mac OS 10.12.3. If you want to use the special features such as manual focus, zoom and pan, you will need to download and install software from Logitech. In case you are wondering, this is the exact same hardware as the C930e business model. In fact, it is detected by Windows as a C930e. The only differences are the packaging and the warranty (the Pro Webcam has a 2-year and the C930e has 3-year). There was a firmware update available on Logitech's site for the C930e but it is actually older than the one that was already installed on the camera. The software offereings are very sparse for this product which is probably the correct marketing approach these days. It is assumed you will use this product with another vendor's application. They do provide a small utility to control the focus, pan, and zoom functions locally and remotely over Skype and a few other apps and that's about it. You will have to load up your application first to see what effect your settings are having on the image. There is a similar app available in the Mac App Store for the Macintosh. The quality of the picture is very good even in low light conditions. It is heads and shoulders above my older Logitech 9000 Pro. The privacy shutter is a nice touch although you will always know when the camera is on by the white LED ring around the lens glowing. There isn't a way to shut it off in the present software. I haven't tried out the H.164 compression features yet so can't comment on how well that works with streaming.

    This camera can shoot 30FPS 1080P with some effort

    You need a software like OBS Studio to get the 1080P 30fps that this camera advertises. Logitech support...well...that's not going to happen. I browsed forums a bit to see what software users were using to achieve the best results. Microsoft Windows 10 Camera app and several others default the camera to 15 fps depending on color and lighting. Even if you set the default settings in Windows 10 Camera app to 30fps x 1080P the camera still defaults back to 15 fps even under moderate light. Why should I have to jump through hoops to get the camera to work as advertised? The great thing is that OBS saved the day. It makes this camera shine IMO. I achieved higher than advertised fps using OBS. The color looks good and the images or video are crisp under moderate lighting. I didn't want studio lighting in my home just to get advertised results so thanks OBS Studio. The wider view angle on this camera works quite well. Oh by the way...this is the Logitech C930e Webcam. Why it is not labeled that way is beyond me. Best Buy priced matched this camera with a better price found on Amazon. Thanks Guys! Logitech....you need to consider developing software that will run this camera. Right now Logitech does not make software for this camera and they pretty much don't support it. If you are a patient person this camera is a real good webcam with the right software. I would rate it 5 if not for the lack of Logitech support.

    Terrific Product

    After installing the webcam you need to go to the Logitech website and download the "Property Page" update for the 930e model webcam so that Windows can recognize it. I would ding the product a few points for not including this software in the box in the first place, or mentioning that it was necessary to do so in the documentation. After installing the update, it performs exactly as you would want it to. What I also like is that the product includes a separate plastic piece that snaps around the webcam that allows you to raise and lower a cover over the lens that allows you to protect yourself from unauthorized access to the device when you are not using it. It's very nice that a company recognizes any number of threats, including our own government, are capable of abusing their product and is willing to spend the extra time and money to protect their customers. :)

    Best webcam for Mac, hands down!

    I am a Mac lover, through and through, but was always disappointed with compatibility with external webcams. As in, at first, there was none. Then some, but not all, Logitech webcams began partially comparable without any real ability to manipulate quality or control camera angles. Then I found this baby! AMAZING raw picture- including controls for white balance, zoom, pan & tilt, and more. Great duel microphones transmit clear audio, and finally my video conferences run smooth and have the professional polish that tells my clients they contracted the correct man for the job! I definitely recommend!

    Perfect for online meetings/training. Broadcasts 1080 with no problems. Excellent microphone built in, although I use another Logitech product (wireless headset) for even clearer voice for online training classes. If you download the Logitech "Camera Settings" ap you have excellent control over the camera from your computer to zoom in and out, as well as panning. Mounted on a professional tripod with studio lights, my teaching area looks very professional.

    Great camera used for large Skype video conference

    Bought this camera for the high definition and ultra wide angle lens and was not disappointed. Used it to Skype with executive leadership into a conference with 60 managers and we were able to capture the room into the Skype session. While each face was not crystal clear, our executive could see the room and see audience reaction to his presentation. Achieved the desired results we were after for this conference. Have not tried this in individual video Skype conference but expect excellent results bases on our wide group chat session.

    Very Good, but not great

    When it comes to webcams, this is pretty high up on the list. I needed a camera that was good in low lighting, and after reading MANY reviews, settled on this one. It does decent, and by decent, I mean it's just a webcam. It has difficulty focusing in low lighting, and presents a grainy (or "noisy") playback. However, in regular lighting this is very good. I wish the mic was more sensitive (make sure to accommodate for this in your computer settings), but the stereo mics make up for it. The bottom line is, for normal use, you can't go wrong with this. If you're looking for something that will fair well in low light, your only true option is a tethered DSLR.
