Even the most expensive laptops can have lackluster webcams. Case in point: The latest Apple MacBook Pro’s webcam only captures video at Standard HD at 720p. This would’ve been considered cutting-edge in 2010. But webcams have come a long way.
Take this Weicha HD Webcam. It’s on sale for just $9, or $12 off with promo code ‘6BEMAJ8B’ at Amazon — that’s a whopping 60 percent savings! It captures video at an impressive Full HD at 1080p and 30FPS (frames per second).
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
Sharp video clarity
This wallet-friendly Weicha HD Webcam streams high quality, buttery smooth HD video with wide viewing angles. It also adjusts white levels to present you in the best possible light (even if your room is dark).
Meanwhile, its built-in microphone reduces ambient and background noise, so those video calls, live streams, meetings and online lessons will sound as good as they look.
“This webcam has been perfect for video chats with my family and kids,” raved a five-star reviewer. “It has a built-in microphone with a noise-canceling feature. The camera captures HD video and has a clear picture. Setup was easy, we just had to plug it in and it was ready to go.”
The Weicha HD Webcam couldn’t be easier to install. All you have to do is clip it to the top of your laptop or monitor and plug it into a USB port. That’s it! The cam is compatible with Windows 2000 and up, macOS, iOS and Android devices and even Linux laptops and desktops. With more and more people staying at home during the pandemic, online get-togethers with family and friends will be a snap.
“I'm grateful for this,” continued the reviewer. “It's allowed my kids and I to see their grandparents... I'm not tech savvy and was drawn to this webcam because of the plug-and-play feature.”
For just 8 bucks with promo code ‘6BEMAJ8B,’ it’s more than worth it—and we’re guessing it’s far better than the webcam that came with your laptop.
“Perfect for zero-tech people like me,” added another five-star reviewer. “Literally plug and play. All you have to do is disable your computer's camera for this to be your auto-default camera. This took me less than five minutes from start to finish.”
