Okay, so the Logitech BRIO webcam isn’t exactly brand new. We put it through its paces for a few months because new isn’t always better.
The images below are unedited and the webcams are on full-auto. There is a small window to my right and overhead lighting; it's not bright but it's certainty not dark either.
Logitech makes the best webcams available. Don’t waste time or money looking for a webcam that will capture a good quality picture in a moderate light setting.
To capture a good quality picture, your options are (a) hack it together with a desk light or (b) look like a pro with a ring light.
Look at the examples above, only this time compare the photos with “no zoom” to the ones “with zoom.” Which looks more professional?
Use zoom to crop distractions from the background.

The BRIO's $200 price point is high. However, there’s a compelling case to upgrade -if you zoom- because the picture quality is better.
Pro Tip: The BRIO is USB-C but comes with a USB-C to USB-A cable. To plug it into a USB-C laptop without an adapter, use the Belkin USB-C to USB-C Cable (USB 3.1), or any other USB-C to USB-C cable that supports USB 3.0 or higher transfer rate and power.
