We found 94 current offers for webcams from eBay making it the biggest webcam retailer. That is significantly bigger than the second biggest retailer, Amazon UK for whom we found 72 current offers for webcams. The third biggest retailer is Misco with 19 current webcam offers.

When Are Most New Webcams Released?

The most common period for new webcams to be released in is between February and March. If you wait until February 2018 then you might be able to get better features on your webcam. It's also worth keeping in mind that the price of the current webcams tend to drop off when the next models are released. The biggest month in 2016 for new webcam releases was March, with five new webcams released that month. July was the biggest month in 2015 for new webcams, with 11 new webcams released that month. 31 new webcams were released in February 2014 making it the biggest month that year for new webcam releases.

How Fast Do Webcam Prices Drop After Release?

On average, in the first 6 months after release, webcams drop in price by 6%. That means a saving of £3 on a typical £51 new webcam if you wait 6 months before buying.

Maximum Video Resolutions

A higher maximum video resolution will increase the sharpness of the images the webcam is recording. A Full HD webcam will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

We found 88 webcams that are webcams that have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels, which makes this the most frequently found maximum video resolution amongst new webcams. We found 88 webcams that are webcams that have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, making 1920 x 1080 pixels the second most common maximum video resolution amongst new webcams.

A higher maximum video resolution will generally result in sharper and higher quality video, although it is not the only factor contributing to the overall image quality of the webcam.

Full HD

A Full HD webcam can record video with a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Of the 255 new webcams currently listed on Kagoo, the vast majority are not full HD webcams. 174 out of 255 are not full HD webcams and only 81 webcams (32%) are full HD webcams.

Full HD indicates that the webcam can record at a fairly high resolution, resulting in a sharper picture.

Built-In Microphones

A webcam with built-in microphone allows you to record sound and video at the same time.

The vast majority of the 255 new webcams currently listed on Kagoo are webcams with a built-in microphone. 86% of webcams are webcams with a built-in microphone.

A built-in microphone is essential when using the webcam for video calls and you will not need to attach an external microphone to your computer or laptop. If you want to use a webcam to record images only, a built-in microphone is not required.

Biggest Webcam Retailers

The biggest webcam retailer by number of products currently for sale is eBay. We found 94 current webcam offers from eBay. The second biggest webcam retailer is Amazon UK with 72 offers. That means eBay is significantly bigger than Amazon UK when it comes to webcams. Misco is the third biggest retailer with 19 current offers.
