Favorite webcam

Hello everyone,

I thought we could do a post about favorite webcam's and settings.

I have a Logitech Quickcam Pro 5000 with default settings.
Don't like the quality of the capture. Don't think the camera can do better.


For the price and size, I love the Pi NoIR camera module and the long ribbon cable(s) that Adafruit sells. It produces great photos and timelapse videos.


I use a standard Pi camera on a Pi3 with an arm that fits into the unused Ethernet port.This works very well with OctoPi.

Logitech C270. By now I they really should grant me a discount considering how many of those I've bought.


Both my printers have C270's

They work fantastic once you take the face plate off so you can focus them for close ups

i have a c310 and a C270.
i got them for 11€ + shipping.
(4,19€ for the c310 and 6,86€ for the c270 )

That's good price, found one local for 34€

What about mounting it? Can the clamp be removed and, perhaps, mount it on a table tripod?

Yup, the axle on the back comes out and can be reused to attach it when you print the arm/stand/tripod whatever

I bought a raspberry pi zero w and the raspberry cam. And this mod Duplicator i3 Z Axis camera mount found on #Thingiverse https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2623384 and this case Raspberry Pi Zero W Case - Remix found on #Thingiverse https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2165844 and some extra bits that I have designed my self the camera is a bit to close so I'm looking for a nother solution.

You could always do something like this.

Don't have the space, but I'm design my own solution :slight_smile:

You want to mount it on the front... corner? I think I would back out that hex-head bolt and create a mount right there. Maybe it goes off to the right and up.

Don't have the Plus but understand, It's the enclosure that is the problem.

Bought a Creative WebCam Live! Cam Chat HD VF0790 (041e:4097), I think I need to tune the settings as the image looks like a camera that is 15 years old.

Any has any idea where to start ?
