HD Webcam shoot-out: 720p Webcams compared

If you're looking for an HD upgrade for video chatting on programs like Skype or Google Chat, Microsoft and Logitech have you covered with the latest batch of 720p cameras.

Paired with free video chat programs like Google Chat or Skype, Webcams are the best way to stay in touch with friends and family from anywhere around the globe. There's a good chance the computer you have now already has a Webcam built in, but a 720p HD upgrade can't hurt, especially for less than $100.

We've rounded up four HD Webcams for your consideration, and though both Logitech and Microsoft offer wide-screen lenses and one-touch uploads to social networks like YouTube and Facebook, our favorite out of the group is the Logitech C510, a solid device that brings 8-megapixel snapshots, 720p video recording, 360-degree panning, and automatic adjustments that improve the audio and video quality.

For $60, the C510 certainly earns our recommendation, but check out the entire 720p HD Webcam roundup and a couple screenshots below for more options.
