Logitech StreamCam review

The Logitech StreamCam may have marketed itself as the perfect webcam for streamers and online content creation, something that it does very well, but it’s missing a few key features that it needs to best other products on the market.

Two-minute review

The Logitech StreamCam is the most recently released product in the Logitech family of webcams and has swiftly become a popular choice for content creators and streamers. Looking at the specifications and Logitech’s track record, it’s easy to see the appeal.

Performance is top-notch, on par with the Razer Kiyo Pro, but the Logitech StreamCam misses out on a few quality of life features, especially with the unfortunate choice to have the USB-C connection wired into the back of the device. It’s also on the pricey side for a webcam at 169 / £139 / AU280 which won’t make it the most affordable choice if you’re looking for something to take a few conference calls at work.

The Logitech Capture software is incredibly easy to use for minor adjustments, but you may need to use a different app if you want to make any serious alterations. You can also use the Logitech Capture feed through other programs such as OBS or StreamLabs if you want to keep the adjustments made via the app, rather than using the raw webcam footage.

The output is 1080p at 60 fps, which is noticeably smoother than the typical 30 fps offerings on cheaper models, but deciding if this will be for you entirely depends on your webcam requirements. A lot of conferencing software such as Google Meet don’t allow for 60 fps, or even 1080p quality in some cases so it’s unlikely you’ll see the full benefit.

For platforms like Twitch or YouTube Live, however, you can use the StreamCam to its full advantage. If you are just looking for a high-quality webcam, this is without a doubt one of the best offerings on the market. You really do get what you pay for, especially if you’re looking to create online content or start streaming.

Price and availability

Here are the specifications for the Logitech StreamCam: Connection type: USB-C 3.1 Image resolution: 2.1 Megapixels Video Resolution: 1080p @ 60/30/24FPS / 720p @ 60FPS / 480p @ 30FPS / 360p @30FPS Microphone: Dual omnidirectional mic with noise reduction filter Still Image Resolution: 1920×1080 Image Quality Settings Customization: Yes Diagonal Field of View (FOV): 78° Focus Type: Auto Mounting Options: L-shape joint or Tripod Cable Length: 1.5 meters built-in cable

The Logitech StreamCam will set you back 170 (£139, AU279) when you can actually find one, which has been difficult of late due to the sudden rise in remote working causing demand for good quality webcams to skyrocket.

This is likely more than most would be willing to pay for even one of the best webcams, but Logitech isn’t exactly marketing this to the everyday office worker. It has to contend with other models in the streaming industry such as the ever-popular C920, another Logitech offering that has been the reliable (and more affordable) go-to for anyone needing a great quality webcam for streaming, so the high price could put folk off as soon as they load up the page to buy it.

That said, this isn’t as pricey as the Razer Kiyo Pro, but it lacks many of the features that this rival product provides such as a variable field of view or HDR settings. You may not use these features for something like work calls, but a wider field of view is especially useful for streaming on platforms like Twitch or YouTube, which makes their absence on the StreamCam a tad disappointing.


The Logitech StreamCam has a uniquely cubic design that isn’t seen in any popular rival products, making it immediately distinguishable among the competition. The design isn’t just a style choice though. the webcam can be mounted either horizontally or vertically, with the latter mimicking the appearance of most forward-facing mobile phone cameras. Grooves are located across the sides of the camera to clip into a ‘U’-shaped casing which allows you to rotate the device quickly if you’re in a situation that needs a swift alteration.

That doesn’t mean the vertical recording capability is actually a good feature though, given how little it will likely be used. Outside of apps like Snapchat or TikTok, most video platforms are horizontally optimized so it’s hard to understand why it was included at all.

There are also two different styles of mount to choose from, the standard ‘grip’ that stiffly flips out to rest onto the display of a monitor or laptop screen, or a diminutive desktop tripod. The tripod mount compatibility also means the StreamCam will work on larger, standard-sized tripods too, should you need something with a little more clearance.

The camera mount only allows for up-and-down or swivel adjustment, so you’re limited with the angled positioning of the device itself, something that could have been improved with a ‘ball joint’-style mount. The device uses a USB-C connection which could also cause a few issues. Not only is the cable wired into the back of the StreamCam, unlike other products that have removable options for flexibility), but not every device has a USB-C port. For those that do, there has been a rise in devices using USB-C connections which means you may have to invest in an adapter or ensure your other devices won’t be fighting for the same connection.

The StreamCam is available in solid black or a white and gray combo, with a slightly textured fabric surrounding the lens. This doesn’t appear to have a practical use, but it does make the webcam look more modern and aesthetically pleasing than a traditional bar-style device. If you have a minimal or scandi-inspired setup then this would likely suit your current look.


Where the 4K, 30 fps Logitech Brio wasn’t well-received by the streaming community, the StreamCam offers a more appealing 1080p quality at a smooth 60 fps. This is better for streaming content such as shows and games, but would realistically be completely overkill for anyone who won’t be utilizing its full potential.

The raw footage is exceptionally good, with great color balance and autofocus right out of the box. We noticed some unfortunate background noise in the background of recordings even in a well lit room though, so make sure you sit yourself by a good light source if you need to broadcast at full screen. It’s also unlikely that this will be picked up on scaled-down video such as gaming streams or conference calls.

You can see comparison images below taken on the Logitech StreamCam against the Razer Kiyo Pro and the Logitech Brio where all settings have been reverted back to the factory standard.

Logitech StreamCam Webcam Review

It’s been three long years since the launch of the Logitech C922, one of the best webcams available, and the streaming community has been hungry for something new. After the disappointing launch of the 4K-capable Brio, Logitech has a lot to prove in order to live up to the long wait. The StreamCam is the company’s answer. Featuring a fresh new design, 1080p60 video, and unexpected features like image stabilization, it aims to impress. But does it do enough to justify the years-long delay and 169 price?

Design and Features

The StreamCam is strikingly different from any other webcam in Logitech’s line-up. It features a boxy design with a larger lens element. Instead of the usual flat plastic face, Logitech has trimmed the front with a fabric covering that fits right in with the company’s MX Speakers or the Amazon Echo Dot. It looks stylish and modern but seems like a mismatch for modern gaming rigs. The black version is a better fit, but it’s the first example of some odd design choices Logitech made here.

Apart from its look, Logitech has made a number of enhancements to the camera itself. The aperture has been lowered to f2.0, which is almost a full stop below the C922’s f2.8. The camera’s sensor is still too small to offer the same bokeh you could expect from a nice camera and lens, but that doesn’t mean it’s pointless. A larger aperture means it can take in more light and offer better performance in dark settings.

The StreamCam is flexible in how it can be set up. The mount that comes pre-attached allows you to position it on the top of your monitor like normal, but it can also be unclipped and rotated to capture vertical video. It’s a neat feature that no other webcam I know of is capable of, and makes the StreamCam more versatile – but I’m left wondering who it’s for. Most streamers don’t use vertical video at all, and for social media applications like Stories, very few people use anything other than a smartphone. Much more useful is the second mount Logitech included, which allows you to attach the StreamCam to a tripod.

To make use of the StreamCam’s 60 fps at 1080p, you’ll need a USB 3.0 connection. This was a major issue when the Brio launched and led to many people connecting their webcams incorrectly. The StreamCam side-steps that problem by ending its cable in a USB Type-C connection. If you’re connecting over Type-C, there’s no way to connect it “wrong,” but if you’re using a PC that’s a few years old, you may not have a Type-C port at all. Logitech recommends using an adapter in this situation, but doesn’t include one in the box, which feels awfully stingy for a product that costs 169. It’s also not common for webcams to require USB-C, so there’s a good chance some streamers will buy the StreamCam only to find out they can’t use it.

Using Logitech Capture, the camera is able to offer a couple of neat tricks others don’t, including Image Stabilization and Auto Framing. Image Stabilization is a head-scratcher. Most webcams are set in one place and rarely move. They don’t need image stabilization. Turning it on causes the camera to zoom in to hide the shaky edges and still didn’t eliminate jostling when I bumped the desk. In my case, it just wasn’t worth the reduced field of view to leave turned on.

Auto Framing is more interesting but feels a little gimmicky. The StreamCam offers the best face tracking I’ve seen on a webcam and uses that to follow you as you move around the frame. It works remarkably well and was able to move the frame to follow me anywhere I moved in its 78-degree field of view. It desperately needs a sensitivity slider, however, because the mix of pan, tilt, and zoom moved too much to be useful instead of silly as I would lean in my chair. I can see the benefit if you move from place to place in a stream, though. Another problem is that the camera doesn’t do this natively, so using it with OBS or XSplit involves leaving Logitech Capture open in the background. The program is lightweight, but if your system is already near its limit, it’s not something you’ll want to leave running.

The rest of the software feels like it’s still in a beta state. You can choose between Streaming and Recording settings, which trades off frame rate for exposure. The Streaming setting didn’t feel well-tuned, and left my image darker than if I dialed in settings myself. Under the Image Settings tab, you can tweak brightness, contrast, and sharpening (and will need to for the best results) but the sliders are both too small and don’t update until you let go of the mouse. What should be a simple slide requires lots of clicks. After seeing how everything worked, I went back to the sliders built into OBS because they felt much more functional.


When evaluating a new webcam, it really comes down to video quality and whether the StreamCam offers enough improvements to justify picking it up over the tried-and-true options dominating the market. I sold my own Logitech C922 last year when I invested in the Elgato Cam Link, but had the Razer Kiyo and Logitech Brio to test against. The Kiyo is similar to the C922 and offers excellent video quality and a built-in ring light.

In the video below, I go through the StreamCam’s software, followed by comparisons between the StreamCam, Brio, and Kiyo. I also included a sample of a Sony RX100 Mk. V connected through a capture card. This allows you to see the kind of jump this more expensive solution offers compared to an all-in-one webcam. Have a look at how they compared:

Where the Logitech StreamCam excelled was its ability to hold FOCUS on my face. No matter where I moved or how bright the lights were, it wouldn’t shift FOCUS once it found me. When I forced it to refocus by putting an object right in front of it, it transitioned moderately quick but wasted no time reacquiring me when I put the object down. The Razer Kiyo performed similarly, but not quite as fast. The Brio, on the other hand, didn’t do well at all and couldn’t seem to separate me from the background.

I was also impressed with the StreamCam’s low light performance. The wide aperture really made a big impact, which can improve your video quality if you like streaming in dim lighting. The camera was able to make out more detail within shadows, and was far less grainy than the Kiyo. The Brio also did well with its low light performance but since it couldn’t stay focused on my face, it really doesn’t matter. The StreamCam’s frame rate also held well and stayed buttery smooth even with my Key Light turned off.

The microphone quality was impressive, not that many streamers will actually use it. The StreamCam offers dual microphones for Stereo or Dual Mono recording. Though the mics still pale in comparison to a good headset or standalone condenser mic, they would work perfectly fine for Discord chats with friends or video calls.

All that said, after three years of waiting, I couldn’t help but feel a little let down. The StreamCam has better autofocus and low light performance – that’s what we would expect from a new camera. 60 fps is nice, but as the crowning impressive feature? Not so much. Where are the innovative streaming features? I would much rather have seen Image Stabilization and vertical video left on the cutting room floor if it meant an integrated ring light like the Razer Kiyo or 4K at 30 FPS.

What each of those features does do, is make the StreamCam an objectively better webcam than the C922. That’s enough to make it a new high water mark for streaming cameras, and maybe that’s enough, but I do wish Logitech had done more to push the boundaries.

Purchasing Guide


The Logitech StreamCam is a great webcam, but it’s held back by its price tag. It offers some of the best face tracking I’ve ever seen in a webcam, good low light performance, and a smooth 60 fps frame rate. If it were cheaper, it would be an easier recommendation over the C922 or Razer Kiyo, but as it stands, I can’t help but feel like streamers will be overpaying for features they don’t need.

Using a Logitech StreamCam on Linux

Last week I finally purchased a webcam for online meetings, something I had been holding off on for quite some time. I was using a 12″ MacBook for these up until now, but I wanted to get a webcam for my main computer as I sometimes need to look over or go through a project while in a meeting, and that’s easier to do on my main macine. For a quick family call this certainly makes it easier, too.

One model that is highly recommended is the Logitech C922 – the successor to the still wildly popular C920. Coming from a Mac webcam, even a potato would be considered an upgrade in terms of image quality, but when looking at reviews and comparisons on YouTube, I couldn’t help but notice the picture quality was decidedly fuzzy.

Since webcams are not necessarily cheap, I had a hard time convincing myself to get it. This is actually the primary reason it took me so long to purchase one in the first place. But, I have to find a solution for this sooner or later, so let’s just get it over with now, I thought.

The Logitech StreamCam is, as the name implies, targeted somewhat more towards the YouTube and Twitch gamers. For what reason I am not entirely sure, as it does not necessarily seem like a great choice for that market. It actually looks like a better all-round choice, or perhaps just for anyone who prefers to have a slightly sharper and higher framerate capture (bandwidth permiting, of course) and spends some time in front of a webcam throughout the year, whatever their purpose may be.

And so, I chose to get the Logitech StreamCam. Not because I’m planning on doing any streaming, but simply because it offers a sharper looking image in most lighting conditions, and supports 1080p at 60 frames per second, if so desired. Perhaps this is overkill now, but as I am not someone who enjoys upgrading hardware often, I like to think that this camera is future proof.

There are two colors available: white and “graphite,” the latter of which is basically the black-equivalent version. Included with the StreamCam are two mounts; one is your typical camera mount designed to be placed on top of your LCD display, and the other has a standard tripod screw mount, which is super handy and the one I ended up using alongside an off-brand GoPro bar mount, attached to my monitor arm.

The camera is hard-wired with an 1.5 meter long USB-C 3.1 cable, which depending on your setup might be a bit short. Fortunately it seems to work fine with a 1 meter USB-C extension cable I purchased separately. No USB-C to USB-A adapter is included in the box by default, although this is something the store I purchased it from did include.

Getting it to work in Linux

Fortunately Logitech webcam support is pretty good under Linux, with video4linux (or v4l2) providing support. What follows is a quick step-by-step guide on how to get the StreamCam to work at full 1080p, 60fps quality, although you can use this same guide for other Logitech cameras too, as the steps should be identical.

List your devices (Optional)

To see if your computer recognizes the webcam you can use the v4l2-ctl tool, which is provided by the v4l-utils package. It is not necessary to install this package, you only need it if you want to use some of the helper tools it provides.

Ubuntu / Debian

❯ sudo apt install v4l-utils

Manjaro / Arch

After this you can run the following command to get a list of recognized devices. Your result should look something like this – along with any other recognized device you may have plugged in:

❯ v4l2-ctl.-list-devices Logitech StreamCam (USB-0000:09:00.1-2): /dev/video0 /dev/video1 /dev/media0


The main utility we’ll be using here is called Guvcview, and is available directly from the Ubuntu universe and Manjaro community repositories. This utility will allow us to preview the webcam, alter many of its settings, and even do things like make photos or record video – though the latter comes with a few caveats. on that in a bit.

Ubuntu / Debian

❯ sudo apt install guvcview

Manjaro / Arch


When you first launch guvcview you should be greeted with your camera’s view, it’s working! However, things probably don’t look quite right. You’ll probably get an abysmal framerate, too. Let’s fix that. Whenever you make a change, you should immediately see the difference in the camera view. The window title of the camera view will tell you what the current framerate is, so keep an eye on that too.

The main window of Guvcview is made up of three tabs, let’s walk through them in order:

Image Controls

  • Disable Exposure, Auto Priority, if it’s not already.
  • Disable Auto Focus (continuous), if it’s not already.

Video Controls

  • Change Frame Rate to 60/1 fps (or 30/1 fps if you prefer).
  • Change Resolution to 1920×1080 (or 1280×720 if you prefer 720p)

If these changes did not immediately fix the framerate, try doing the following under Image Controls:

Sometimes the camera seems to need a nudge in the right direction, and this might help it. After this your framerate should jump up to whatever option you chose, and you should be able to change Exposure, Auto back to Aperture Priority Mode. Alternatively you can leave it at whatever specific setting you want, of course.

These are just the default settings needed to get the StreamCam to show up at its full resolution and framerate. From here you can tweak its white balance, exposure, etc. if you like, although I must admit I have done none of those things. I did use the mirror filter to match what I see on-camera with what I expect to see, which is a bit more convenient for me.

Take a look at all the available settings and see what you like. Fortunately Guvcview supports saving and loading of profiles, so once you have made your basic configuration, simply use the Save profile option under Settings, and store this somewhere convenient. That way you can always go back to your defaults, or even switch between different settings depending on specific situations, for example.

Recording video

Guvcview allows you to snap a photo and record a video directly, too, which can be handy in certain situations. What you may find though is that by default as soon as you hit Cap. Video, the framerate tanks.

This seems to be a limitation with this application, but a solution I found was to change the Video codec from the Video menu to MJPG. compressed. Raw camera input works fine, too. This seems to avoid the issue, although the resulting video file will become quite large, quite fast, so keep that in mind. If you’re planning on recording videos more frequently, it would probably make sense to use something like OBS instead, just make sure you check the aperture-related settings if your framerate seems low.

Most settings you specify in Guvcview should be preserved by other applications that use the camera, unless they apply their own settings or defaults. So once you have configured things the way you like in Guvcview, your next Zoom/Skype/Google Hangouts call should look quite alright.

Update: A note on guvcview and audio recording issues

It appears that guvcview has trouble recording audio these days, likely related to pipewire, which is the new default used on several more up-to-date systems. Guvcview still correctly shows microphone activity while recording, but no audio is actually being recorded.

If you have run into this issue, know that this is not an issue with the StreamCam. I’ve unfortunately so far not found any way to fix this, other than to use a different tool. The webcam tool called “Cheese” would be a nice alternative if it wasn’t for its very poor picture quality defaults that seemingly can’t be changed. I’ve been using OBS to record videos, which feels like overkill, but at least it works.

I wasn’t able to find much information about the StreamCam under Linux, so if you are in a similar boat as I was and found this article whilst doing your research, rest assured that the StreamCam works just fine under Linux, including full [email protected].

Install RPM Fusion that automatically stays up-to-date alongside future Fedora Silverblue releases

I’d like to show a slightly Inception looking way you can install RPM Fusion in a way that you don’t have to worry about needing to remove-and-reinstall it with every Fedora update. The issue lies with the “normal” method of installing RPM Fusion being specific to the currently installed version

Hardware-accelerated video playback in Fedora Silverblue 38

recently, Fedora removed support for hardware-accelerated playback of H.264 and H.265 content. This was done due to the need to avoid licensing complications (and costs) that surround these codecs. While understandable, this is less desirable to those using Fedora and wanting smooth video playback, especially on more

Delayed starting of Docker service until expected mounts are available

(Or for any other systemctl controlled service, for that matter) If you’ve ever run into the situation where you reboot your computer (or virtual machine) and the Docker service kicked in a bit too fast, even before some of your fstab defined mounts are fully available, you might’ve noticed that
