Loving My New Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 (with video)

Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920, 1080p Widescreen Video Calling and Recording (960-000764)I’m not the chick with 200 pairs of shoes. I’d much rather spend money on tech gadgets and gizmos for my business. My latest toy is this Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920. The video on this Web camera is far superior to my internal Webcam, and is even better than my iPhone. It also has a built-in microphone that sounds pretty good (I’ll use a separate mic though. Here’s my Samson C03U when I want the absolute best sound quality).

I was surprised at how small this Webcam is (about 4×1 inches). I can use the built-in mechanism to clamp it to my laptop, a monitor, or a tripod. I can capture videos or photos. One thing that surprised me was that the .MP4 format was audio only when I inserted it into Sony Vegas for editing. I ended up having to convert the video to H.264 format first. (I use software called Movavi Video Converter for that. There are other products on the market, but this turned out to be the best one for maintaining the level of quality I want).

The first part of this video was recorded with my iPhone with its built-in microphone. The second part was recorded with the Webcam. Be sure to click the Quality Wheel to see the video in HD.

I’m so totally obsessed with doing videos. See some more of my how-to videos on my YouTube channel. I’m also creating new videos for a membership Website for solopreneurs that features full tutorials to help you manage and market your business.

What are you using to create videos?
