You could somehow figure out how to use your iPhone camera as a desktop webcam… or you could shell out $69.99 for the Logitech Brio 300 and get yourself a pretty nifty webcam capable of shooting in Full HD with automatic Light correction and noise reduction include microphone for a pleasantly surprising video experience that is worth the money.
It’s funny how laptop and desktop manufacturers have absolutely dropped the ball on webcams. Everyone is so focused on slim builds and powerful CPUs and GPUs that no one in the last 3 years has really realized that the webcam is now an integral part of businesses. “We surveyed more than 3,000 remote workers* and found that most non-webcam users struggle with low light, unflattering camera angles and shoddy sound from their laptop speakers,” said Scott Wharton, Logitech general manager B2B The Brio 300 was designed to appeal to this demographic that just needed a reliable, budget-friendly conference call workhorse. The Brio 300 isn’t a state-of-the-art 4K camera (like its older brother, the Brio 4K), but it handles the basic tasks very well. A 70° field of view captures just the right amount and gets you perfectly framed (without showing the clutter around you), while automatic light correction helps adjust your image whether you’re in a dark room or you have harsh light that falls on your face and creates a color burn. Finally, the built-in noise-cancelling microphone focuses only on your voice and not on the cacophony of children playing, dogs barking or cars honking around you.

The Brio 300 Series webcams are perfect for those looking to take the simple but significant leap to vastly enhance their video conferencing experiences with an external webcam,” says Wharton. “And for companies that If you need to provide certified, easy-to-use webcams for employees’ home or office workspaces, Brio 305 is the budget-friendly option.”
The webcam is a compact device that comes with a monitor clamp and a USB-C cable that works right out of the box. The plug-and-play webcam is certified for use with Microsoft Teams, Zoom and Google Meet and features a manual privacy shutter that allows you to close the camera lens when the Brio 300 is not in use.
The Brio 300 has an unconventional, cone-shaped design that feels more custom and comes in three colors — Rose, Off-White, and Graphite (which goes pretty well with Logitech’s mice and keyboards). Like other Logitech products, the camera was designed from recycled materials. The Brio 300 is made from at least 48% certified post-consumer recycled plastic for the Off-White and Rose variants, and a staggering 62% for the Graphite variant.
