Why the Logitech Streamcam is the next big thing for streamers

Streamers rejoice! 60fps (frames per second) 1080p streaming now comes at an affordable price thanks to the Logitech Streamcam. Up until now, content creators who were looking to improve their stream quality on the visual side would have had to heavily invest into a fairly pricey DSLR camera setup if they are wanting that sleek 60fps goodness. While microphone solutions were always at broadcasting standards, the common video option to purchase for streamers on a budget was the Logitech C920, which the Streamcam will have now replaced. At a price point of just £139 the camera provides the next level of broadcasting quality to streamers eager to upgrade their setup.

Logitech Streamcam
The New Logitech Streamcam

A Twitch or YouTube gaming content creator with a camera output of 1080p / 60fps can be instantly recognised due to the crisp, smooth refresh rate which is leagues ahead of a choppy 30fps camera. We've ordered one of the new Logitech Streamcam's to test here at Disobey, allowing us to play around and give feedback to our streamer friends who are looking to buy one 🔥 The Streamcam uses USB-type C connection, which is necessary to carry the video bandwidth of the full 1080p/60fps as USB 3.0 wouldn't have enough girth to be able to handle all the data sent from the camera.
