Reasons For

Logitech C920 Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000
5 Reasons For
Higher Megapixel
The Logitech C920 is a 15MP webcam. That's 13.7MP higher than the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 (1.3MP).

The resolution of the image a webcam records is measured in megapixels. A webcam with a resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels records 1,310,720 pixels or roughly 1.3 megapixels.

A higher number of megapixels means the webcam is able to record finer detail. The resolution of the image is, however, not the only factor which contributes to the overall image and video quality of the webcam.

Read more Read less | Edit
Full HD
The Logitech C920 is full HD, whereas the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 is not.

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

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

Read more Read less | Edit
Auto Focus
The Logitech C920 has an auto focus, but the Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 does not have an auto focus.

'Auto focus' is the ability for the webcam to automatically pull focus towards the main subject in the shot.

Autofocus means that the webcam makes sure that the subject of the shot is always in focus, and never appears to be blurry.
