Digital Camera World Verdict

Precious few consumers would ever consider spending $300/£250 on a webcam. But for those who can afford it, the Jabra Panacast 20 has the best build quality of any webcam we’ve ever used. It matches this with 4K resolution that is actually useful, thanks to AI-powered zooming and panning, a triple-mic array for impressive sound, and some of the best video call quality we’ve ever seen.

What happens when you want to buy a webcam, but aren’t restricted by trivialities like sticking to a sensible budget? The answer is you end up here, with the Jabra Panacast 20, a webcam that costs ten times more than some of today’s cheapest options, and between two and four times more than many consumers would ever be willing to spend.

As long as the high price tag hasn’t put you off, this is a webcam worthy of your attention. Thankfully, there is much more to the Panacast 20 than a very high price. For the considerable cost you get 4K resolution, a premium design with great build quality, intelligent zoom and lighting optimization, and a protective carry case.
