If you need a less-expensive option, or something you can take with you, we recommend the Logitech HD Webcam C615.
Cameras located on Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, in Whistler Village and at the Whistler Golf Club.
View our photo gallery for the latest Whistler photos. The Whistler ski season starts November 23, 2017 with the mountains open through to May 2018.
For our 2017 tests, here’s what we captured with each contender: We then had seven Wirecutter staffers compare the images and videos from the different cameras, without knowing which was which, and rank their quality from best to worst.
We used that data, our findings from the previous version of this guide, and notes from other professional reviewers to settle on our picks.
In a previous round of testing, we tested (and dismissed) Logitech’s C930e and Microsoft’s Life Cam Cinema.
Once we narrowed down the field, we took multiple pictures and videos with each webcam under controlled conditions so we could compare them directly.

The C920, our top pick, is less expensive and our testers preferred its picture quality, but the C922x was a close second and it uses an identical microphone and monitor clip.
It also supports smoother 60 fps video at 720p, it includes a tripod, and it supports (on Windows only) a background replacement feature that simulates a green-screen effect.
They did think that the C920’s audio sounded muffled compared with the other webcams we tested, but the camera’s noise-reduction feature works well and the sound is still perfectly fine for casual chats and virtual meetings.
