Where are the differences?

Let's compare the two webcams Anker PowerConf C300* and Logitech C930e* a little closer and take a look at the differences. The Anker PowerConf C300 is from the year 2021 and thus newer. The Logitech C930e was launched in the year 2013.

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 C300 and Logitech C930e do not differ at this point. Both provide a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 px (FullHD). 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.

The maximum framerate is higher for the Anker PowerConf C300 with 60 fps. For the Logitech C930e the value is 30 fps.

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.

If a resolution of 1080p is chosen, the framerate of the two webcams will differ. In comparison, the Anker PowerConf C300* offers more here. It has a frame rate of 60 fps. The Logitech C930e has a frame rate of 30 fps.

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 C300 is larger with 130 ° in comparison. The Logitech C930e has a maximum field of view of 90 °. The Anker PowerConf C300* 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 C300 and the Logitech C930e offer an integrated microphone. In both cases, it is an recording.
