Where to Buy
 

At the time of the review in 2009, the Logitech Webcam C905 was the best webcam for laptop users, specifically because its mounting clip connects securely to any size laptop. It features a 2-megapixel sensor, a high-quality Carl Zeiss lens, sound- and light-enhancing technologies, autofocus and a particularly user-friendly software package. CowboyFrank.net's Frank Harrell designates the Webcam C905 the best portable webcam for its superb color and exposure, widescreen resolution and versatile mounting clip. Logitech backs the Webcam C905 with a two-year limited warranty.

The best review of the Logitech Webcam C905 comes from Frank Harrell at CowboyFrank.net. Harrell includes a set of standardized test photos in various lighting conditions for each web camera. Sample photos are compared to a control photo shot with a digital single-lens reflex, and reviews are highly comparative. We found almost 350 reviews at Amazon.com and an evaluation of the C905's predecessor, the QuickCam Pro for Notebooks, at EverythingUSB.com.

Although it's specific to the Webcam C905's predecessor, the QuickCam Pro for Notebooks, Eric Hanson produces an outstanding comprehensive review that is copiously illustrated with photos and screenshots.
