Shopping links on the CHOICE website

CHOICE is an independent, nonprofit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our nonprofit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.

Our expert testers assess each webcam to find which models:

  • perform the best in various lighting conditions
  • perform well for recording and video conferencing
  • are easy to use and position
  • have privacy features.

Our interactive comparison tool helps you find out which webcams can swivel, have a tripod mount, display a video indicator light, and more. Our Recommended list will help you quickly see which models come out on top.
