Next Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920
From Creative to Logitech, we pick our five HD webcams to make the most of Skype and video calls over the festive period
The days of incurring astronomical charges on your phone bill for long distance calls are long gone thanks to the humble webcam and video calling apps like Skype and Fring.
Unfortunately, many front-facing snappers packed into most desktop, tablets and smartphones are not really up to the job of delivering your visual chats in great clarity in either the sound or video department. Helping you make that call come out loud and clear, we've picked five HD webcams to buy and video chat with instead.
