The Apple MacBook Pro or MacBook Air has a mediocre webcam by today's standards and usage. The 720p camera doesn't work anymore. If you're on Zoom video calls and meetings all day, you might want a camera that performs better than the built-in 720p webcam on Apple MacBooks that makes it look flat and washed out.

5 Best Webcams for Mac Book

Today, most external webcams offer a healthy mix of features, including high-resolution video and features like auto focus and zoom. And if you're in the spending mood, you can also incorporate features like HDR.

So if you are looking to buy a webcam, here are our recommendations for the best webcams for Apple Macbook Pro and Macbook Air. But before that,

1. Logitech BRIO

  • Resolution : 4K
  • Connector : USB-A and USB-C
Offers

Logitech Brio Ua HD Pro Webcam, Fluent Streaming 1080p / 60fps, Adjustable Field of View, Zoom X5, Compatible with Skype, WebEx, Cisco Jabber, Zoom, Windows Hello, PC / Mac / Laptop / Chrome, Color Black
Logitech Brio Ua HD Pro Webcam, Fluent Streaming 1080p / 60fps, Adjustable Field of View, Zoom X5, Compatible with Skype, WebEx, Cisco Jabber, Zoom, Windows Hello, PC / Mac / Laptop / Chrome, Color Black

  • Capture Every Detail in 4k HD: Supports multiple resolutions, including 4K Ua HD; at 30 fps, 1080p Full HD; at 30 or 60 fps
  • RightLight and HDR technology: Delivers your image in any lighting condition, from low light to direct sunlight or high contrast
  • Practical Security: Supports facial recognition for security with Windows Hello or other facial recognition software
  • Mounting and Privacy options: Blur the background in a busy workspace or replace it entirely by selecting or uploading your background images
  • Adjustable Field of View: Zoom in and move around the scene with precision

Logitech BRIO meets many requirements. For one, it's a 4K webcam that translates into beautiful images. The camera supports HDR, which results in balanced images and videos. Another advantage is that the Brio can transmit audio clearly without noise.

However, please note that we do not need 4K webcams for daily calls and videos unless you want to record and record video. That said, the two omni-directional microphones pick up audio well and the noise-canceling feature does a good job of masking ambient noises. Many critics have praised this quality.

It includes a privacy shutter, so you can slide the privacy shutter to block your view if you are not comfortable with the webcam.

However, it has some shortcomings. For one thing, the background replacement feature doesn't work as advertised if the lighting isn't right. Second, the build quality isn't impressive considering this webcam costs over $ 150.

Other than that, you get a detachable long cable. Plus, the USB-C connectivity means you can connect it directly to your Mac.

2. Logitech C922x Pro Stream Webcam

  • Resolution : 1080p
  • Connector : USB-A
Offers

Logitech C922 Pro Stream, Professional Streaming Webcam with Super Fast HD 720p at 60fps, Tripod Included and 3-Month Free License for XSplit, Black
Logitech C922 Pro Stream, Professional Streaming Webcam with Super Fast HD 720p at 60fps, Tripod Included and 3-Month Free License for XSplit, Black

  • Premium video quality every time you stream
  • Streaming without lag or distortion
  • Enjoy crystal clear high definition in all environments
  • Capture natural sound in recorded calls and videos
  • Fully adjustable tabletop tripod with swivel mount Extendable to 18.5 cm

The Logitech C922x Pro is the successor to the very popular Logitech C920 Pro. One of the first things you will notice is that it is not as expensive as its previous counterpart. For around $ 80, it brings an exciting set of features like FHD videos and autofocus.

This FHD webcam offers quality video. For the record, it can handle 1080p at 30fps, while it does 720p at 60fps. Like the one above, it comes with dual microphones. But when you compare both Logitech cameras, the C922x Pro's microphone isn't up to scratch.

The highlight of this webcam is its autofocus feature. This gives the webcam the ability to adjust its focus based on ambient lighting. And it's a huge plus when you're on video calls all day.

3. Nexigo business webcam

  • Resolution : 1080p
  • Connector : USB-A
Offers

60FPS 1080P Webcam with Auto Focus, Dual Microphones and Privacy Cover, 2022 NexiGo N660P Pro HD USB Webcam for PC Gaming Zoom Conference Skype FaceTime Teams, White

  • Full HD 60fps 1080p webcam: NexiGo Full HD webcam is equipped with 1920 x 1080p high definition resolution, automatic white balance and automatic exposure control, the webcam can provide clear images and high definition video at 60fps Even when recording in dim or poorly backlit settings, the camera will intelligently adjust itself to produce the best possible image.
  • Built-in Stereo Noise Reduction Microphone: The built-in stereo microphone is equipped with an omni-directional microphone that protects against background noise, perfect for online teaching, blogging, lecturing, live streaming, video calling, social gaming. It can provide the best video experience even in a noisy environment.
  • Privacy Shutter Webcam: The webcam comes with a privacy shutter to protect your privacy and security, slide the webcam cover open when needed and easily close when not. Prevent web hackers from spying on you. It is perfect for providing privacy, security and peace of mind to individuals, groups, organizations, businesses and governments.
  • 【Plug and Play】 The 2m USB cable is long enough for any task, just plug it in and you're good to go. There is no need to download or install any complicated driver, convenience and utility software.
  • Wide Compatibility: Compatible with Windows 7, Windows 8, Android V 5.0 or above (with video calling support clients), it is the best webcam for computers, make calls, broadcast conferences and record.

The Nexigo proves to be a good choice if you want an affordable webcam for your Mac. It brings all the important functions under one roof, such as 1080p 60fps recording, a noise-canceling microphone, and a privacy shutter. But 1080p is sufficient for Zoom calls and Microsoft Teams meetings.

It is a simple plug-and-play camera and does not need any additional software to run.

The image quality is clear and several users have praised this feature as part of their reviews. Plus, you also get a nifty privacy shutter with this camera.

Like most webcams, the Nexigo camera is not perfect and has a few shortcomings. The wide angle lens means that a large part of your room will be visible in the background. While the microphone transmits audio smoothly, the noise-canceling feature can, at times, make it sound a bit robotic. Second, the camera clip can be a bit awkward to use at times.

That said, this affordable webcam for MacBooks has earned praise from its user base for its image quality and plug & play functionality.

4. Casecube FHD 1080P webcam

  • Resolution : 1080p
  • Connector : USB-A
1080P Webcam with Ring Light and Dual Microphone, 5-Level Digital Zoom Webcam, Advanced Auto Focus, Adjustable Brightness, Angetube 962 USB FHD Google Meet Gaming Webcam
1080P Webcam with Ring Light and Dual Microphone, 5-Level Digital Zoom Webcam, Advanced Auto Focus, Adjustable Brightness, Angetube 962 USB FHD Google Meet Gaming Webcam

  • 3-Level Adjustable Ring Fill Light Webcam – The streaming webcam's built-in ring light offers illumination compensation in 3 different levels with touch control that you don't need to enter software settings, so you can achieve the ideal brightness conditions by adjusting the ring light in low light environments. Facial enhancement technology makes you look more confident and professional in live streaming.
  • 5-level digital zoom for adjustable field of view: Angetube network camera with powerful 5-level digital zoom allows you to precisely focus on important things and can capture clearer details and colors in video chat. You can adjust the field of view to be narrower or wider via the digital zoom buttons to zoom in and out on the back of the webcam. (Can't zoom in and out with 1080P resolution)
  • HD 1080p Webcam Autofocus and Low Light Correction: The Angetube 962 PC Webcam with 78 degree wide angle lens and 2.0 Megapixel CMOS captures real video and images at 1080P / 30FPS. Low-light auto correction provides clearer video even in low-light conditions. Real-time autofocus allows the streaming camera to capture more details. Perfect for streaming on social media and games.
  • Plug and Play and Innovative Design – Works with USB 2.0 / 3.0, no additional drivers required. You can adjust the viewing angles as you like. It is compatible with Windows XP / 7/8/10, Chrome OS, Mac OS 10.6, Linux and Android 5.0 or higher.
  • Dual Microphone Webcam – Computer webcams with built-in noise-canceling dual microphones reduce ambient noise to improve the sound quality of your video. Even in noisy surroundings, you can capture the pure and clear sounds. Supports Zoom / Skype / Facetime / Video Call / OBS / Facebook / YouTube / Xbox one / XSplit / Conference / Game Streaming / Recording for Desktop PC Mac Computer

The Casecube includes a light ring that makes it a pleasure to use if your home office isn't too bright. Like dedicated ring lights, you can customize the amount of light on your face. Tap the light ring to cycle through the four different light modes. Great, we would say.

Other than that, it is a decent webcam for MacBook users. The image is clear and the ring light provides an adequate amount of light. However, you must keep the light on or else you may see a darker image.

The microphone transmits a clear voice. However, it doesn't come with perks like a noise-canceling microphone and the like.

Being an inexpensive product, you will have to forgo features like the USB-C connector. This one has a USB-A connector, and you'll need a USB-C converter if you don't already have one.

5. IFROO FHD 1080P webcam with microphone

  • Resolution : 1080p
  • Connector : USB-A

IFROO FHD 1080P Webcam with Microphone

If you don't want to spend a lot on a mere webcam and want a short one, you can check out the IFROO 1080P webcam. The name pretty much gives away one of the important features of this webcam. For its price, it's a sleek webcam and sits smoothly on top of the screen.

Again, it is a plug-and-play webcam and does not need any additional installation. For the price, it offers decent image quality compared to the built-in camera.

Images appear clear and colors are mostly accurate, given the right lighting conditions. However, the audio may not be up to the mark, and this is a must-do compromise for the low price.

Last but not least, you will have to make peace with the USB-A port. And if you don't have a USB-C converter on hand, that will add to the costs.

See a clear picture

These were some external webcams that you can consider buying for your Apple MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. Unfortunately, more affordable webcams have USB-A connectors and can make audio processing difficult and in turn make your voice sound a bit different or robotic.

If you have a few extra bucks to spare, you can also take a look at some inexpensive microphones. The dedicated hardware and proper audio processing in these microphones will outperform webcam microphones and result in clear and accurate audio.
