The best webcams help you look your best, whether you need one for work, streaming to Twitch, or video chatting with family. A good webcam's image sensor is much larger than the camera built into your laptop, so will pick up features better, even in lower light. Most webcams also have a higher resolution than most laptops, so you'll get a lot more detail.

Do you need a built-in microphone? How about a wide aspect ratio? Perhaps you want to upgrade to something capable of 4K or 60 FPS? Whatever your reason for looking to buy a new webcam, there are so many variables these days that the options can feel overwhelming. Here we narrowed down the 7 best webcams to make your job easier.
