Why Should I Prefer Logitech 4K Pro Webcam?

Hello Gary,

On your MacMost Recommended Products page, you tell us that you (recently) switched from the Logitech 920c to the Logitech 4K Pro Webcam.

1) Considering that you make a lot of training videos with picture in picture, do you think the switch was a good move? Is the difference noticeable?

2) Do you still use Webcam Settings application with your new webcam (compared to the software provided by Logitech)?

Thank you for everything.

P.S. For those interested by the Logitech 4K Pro Webcam, I just noticed that Logitech sells the exact same webcam under 2 differents names:
– 4K Pro Webcam (under FOR ME tab)
– Brio Webcam (under FOR BUSINESS tab)

The price is the same ($199 as of today).

The specs are also indentical, except… the lenght of the webcam cable:
– 4K Pro Webcam: 4.9 ft
– Brio Webcam: 7.2 ft

    Yes, definitely a big difference. The Logitech 4K “Brio” camera I have been using for some months is 4K video, which is much higher quality than the 1080 of the 920c. That alone makes it worth it.

    Yes, I still use Webcam Settings. I use the Logitech software too as it has the setting to adjust the viewing angle.

    Thank you for your nice reply.

    The thing I am worry about is the great amount of negative comments from Mac users who bought the Brio webcam.

    On Amazon, we can read comments like: “Don’t buy if you’re using a Mac. There are threads everywhere detailing the pleas from users to Logitech to get their support up to par for OSX 10.13 High Sierra..

    Did you have any problem with the installation of this webcam on your Mac? Did the fact that you are an experienced programmer help you?

    Vincent: I took a look at those reviews. There were only 3 of them that mentioned it not working on the Mac, and lots of others that said it did. I’m not sure what problem those people had. It works fine on my Mac Pro — plug and play. I didn’t have to do anything special.
