Looking for a 1080p or 720p USB webcam, to use on my desktop PC for teams/zoom meetings.


Previously I would have to fire up my laptop (inbuilt cam) for video calls, but would prefer just to keep using the desktop PC (and not switch between devices)


There must be a few webcams out there collecting dust, that people rushed out to buy for lock down, but no longer needed.

Got a Logitech C910 gathering dust.



Thanks, my first preference would be a webcam with 1080p video calling. I see the c910 only does 720p video calling?


Although if I don't find a webcam over the next week, then I may change my mind and a 720p camera will suffice.
Will PM you if nothing else comes up.

Probably cheaper to tape a mobile to the side of your monitor? Maybe the only way to get a webcam these days.
