Not for streamers, but the Logitech StreamCam is a good webcam nonetheless

Digital Camera World Verdict

The Logitech StreamCam is a great webcam, and for content creators who don’t yet own a dedicated camera, it can also do a decent job of recording footage for a YouTube channel. But Logitech falls short of offering the “ultimate experience for streamers” this camera promises. But do make sure you don't pay the full recommended price.

The StreamCam is Logitech’s latest webcam. Landing in 2020, it sits above the aging C920 in Logitech’s range but below the 4K-enabled Brio. It has a smart design, AI-powered automatic framing, stereo microphones and shoots high-quality Full HD video at a smooth 60 frames per second.

But, while the name suggests this is a camera for streamers, we believe this is instead a good option for remote-workers who want to improve their appearance (and sound quality) without spending needlessly on a 4K webcam whose extra pixels are wasted on HD-only video conferencing platforms.
