There aren’t many sectors of the technology industry where the most expensive product can cost ten times more than the cheapest, despite performing the same function. But webcams are one of those products, and even within Logitech’s own portfolio, there are models priced at just $20 and some, like the new MX Brio reviewed here, that cost $200.

Insta360 Link

As mentioned above, the Insta360 Link is a 4K webcam with a trick up its sleeve, in the form of a drone-style motorized gimbal that keeps the camera steady, while also panning, tilting, and zooming to keep you in shot. It’s a bit niche – and not at all cheap – but it’s smaller than the Logitech and works impressively.

Jabra Panacast 20

Also more compact than the MX Brio, the Panacast 20 by Jabra is also a 4K webcam. It also has a high-quality metal body and feels built to last, while packing three microphones and producing excellent footage through a 90-degree lens. It even comes with a carry case, too.
