3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech C905

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the Logitech C905 has a relatively typical maximum frame rate compared to most of the other low megapixel webcams that were launched more than two years ago.

Webcams with a higher maximum frame rate that might be worth considering include the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] (60fps), or the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10[plb_1343171_price] (60fps) which also has a higher rating.
