720P vs 1080P webcams, which one should be chosen? 

(5 important points you need to know are also very informative in 2022.)


Covid-19 is still impacting people's lives. It is rapidly changing the mode of communication for many people. Students need to access the Internet for classes, office workers often conduct online meetings, etc. The webcam has become the key to our most prominent remote face-to-face communication. Here's a look at 720P vs 1080P webcams, which one should be chosen?


1.Why most laptop webcams are 720P?

Most laptops on the market have built-in webcams, but why do most of them have a maximum resolution of 720P? This is because laptop customers tend to be more concerned with size, speed, weight, battery life and overall price/performance ratio. While taking pictures is a common activity with cell phones, it's safe to say that less than half of laptop users regularly use webcams.


The NotebookCheck article asked both Dell and AMD and got the same answer, that people don't buy a webcam based on how good it is, but rather prefer the size of the memory and the speed of the processor in a laptop. So installing better webcam modules on laptops is a non-essential move. Consumers are also very dissatisfied with this answer, and the ability to perform high quality video on laptops is what they want.


2.The difference between built-in webcam and external webcam

As we all know, the built-in webcam of notebooks will be relatively low pixel, whether it's more than $10,000 such as macbook or a low-cost $200 computer, it's usually 720P.


If the laptop is to be very thin, then the built-in webcam will not be able to have a high pixel module built in. The advantage of a built-in webcam is that you don't need to carry more accessories with you to go out, and you don't have to worry about losing the webcam. The disadvantage is also obvious, that is, the built-in webcam is generally low pixel, low frame rate problem. It will affect your video experience, and you can't adjust the angle at will because it is fixed at the beginning.


Why ought we to claim an usb webcam for laptop or pc? The self-evident reasons are way better picture quality, superior center execution, and simple to alter the point of the standalone webcam. The execution and cost of today's standalone webcams for PC are exceptionally great. At the same time, you can have a better quality Webcam for about $30 at the moment. Webcam also has a certain disadvantage, that is, when you use it, you need to manually connect it. So when buying, the plug and play feature is something to consider.

4. How to choose the right webcam for yourself

First you have to consider what you use the computer camera for? If you are engaged in live streaming, then trust me, choose a computer camera with 1080p settings with higher parameters. You'll be able to improve the video in your live stream at the same time, which is what viewers want to see.

Secondly, If you need to do a lot of online meetings, then try to buy a computer camera that has a large wide angle and also choose one that has AI sound source recognition, that will be very helpful.

Finally, If you are purely for online video chatting with friends, then choosing a cost effective 1080P computer camera will do the trick.
