Where are the differences?

Let's compare the two webcams Anker PowerConf C200* and Logitech StreamCam* a little closer and take a look at the differences. The Anker PowerConf C200 is from the year 2021 and thus newer. The Logitech StreamCam was launched in the year 2020.

Which webcam has the higher resolution?

The resolution is one of the most important factors for a webcam and therefore elementary for the purchase decision. The two webcams Anker PowerConf C200 and Logitech StreamCam do not differ at this point. Both provide a maximum resolution of 2048 x 1080 px (2K). The resolution and frame rate factors are often also a reason why an external webcam is worthwhile. With most built-in webcams in notebooks, the resolution and frame rate is quite low.

Which webcam gives the better frame rate?

This brings us to the next important factor: the frame rate, or fps (frames per second). This specification describes how many frames per second can be recorded and played back. The higher the value, the smoother the picture runs.

However, the frame rate often varies depending on the resolution. Some devices have a higher framerate at a lower resolution. This is also the case here. At the top of the table you can find the resolutions with the corresponding framerate.

Field of view

The larger the field of view, the more of the environment a webcam can capture. However, a larger field of view is not necessarily better, as it can also capture more privacy. This is where the two webcams differed. The maximum field of view of the Anker PowerConf C200 is larger with 95 ° in comparison. The Logitech StreamCam has a maximum field of view of 78 °. The Anker PowerConf C200* has the advantage that the viewing area can be adjusted. This of course gives more flexibility in the application.

Is there a microphone installed?

With most webcams, there is an integrated microphone. For streaming or when no headset is available, this is beneficial. Both the Anker PowerConf C200 and the Logitech StreamCam offer an integrated microphone. In both cases, it is an recording.

Cover panel

Some webcams have a cover bezel built in. This is only the case with the Anker PowerConf C200*. With the Logitech StreamCam you have to do without this feature. The bezel protects the lens, but also provides privacy protection. Most of the time, the cover bezel is advertised for privacy. Of course, for some models, there are also additional options to cover the lens.
