Webcam stock has been one of the major casualties of 2020. Many of the best webcams are simply nowhere to be found. If you can find them, you probably have to go through a third party that may or may not be trustworthy. And you'll probably end up paying a lot more than the MSRP of the camera itself. Deals are beyond rare in most situations. Rare but not completely gone. There are webcams to be found, after all, and of the ones that are available many of them do have sales worth noting.
The webcam shortage was caused by essentially a perfect storm of huge demand and a cut off from supply. Thanks to the global pandemic, more and more people were forced to work from home for the first time ever. Working from home means more video conferencing, more Zoom meetings, and more online gaming (after work, of course). To do those things, you need a webcam. So demand shot through the roof. Unfortunately, webcams also got hit with slower shipping and a dried up supply chain for the same reasons. Now popular models like the Logitech C920, possibly the most popular webcam around, have sold out pretty much everywhere.
We'll have to wait and see if Cyber Monday, which will be one of the biggest sales events of the year, can revitalize some of these webcam stocks and give us some of the big discounts we expect from Amazon.
Let's take a look at the webcams that are available and the ways you can save on them.
