    WFH Web meeting kit

    Seeing as I'm now spending many hours a week working from home in Teams, Zoom or Skype meetings, I was thinking of pimping my web meeting kit - something that I can plug into either laptop.
    The lighting is pretty poor is in here, so I've either got the option of dim daylight or shiny reflections coming off my forehead with the light on... With winter approaching this will only get worse....
    Is there a natty combined lighting (ring type?) / webcam / microphone / speaker set up on the market which would only take up one USB port?
    Any recommendations?

        I've got the logitec C920 and I get black lines due to the Led G10s I've got. I've ma aged to changed the refresh to 60hz which wasn't straightforward but it's not much better.
        Can't believe they are selling kit that struggles with Led lighting. Really disappointed with it as it wasnt cheap either.

          Checking through the reviews the C920 is still getting picked as best of the best. It should be able to work with a simple light reasonably effortlessly...
          The Razer Kiyo with built in light looks like the right bit of kit for me. I'll read up on the options - and of course, see how much I can spend

            More times than not, an improvement in lighting will be much better than just a camera upgrade

                ^^ This.

                Try it out. The difference is amazing. Even with a laptop's webcam.

                  Have you upgraded to the "Logitech Capture" software?

                  It's a bit resource heavy, but it has a number of excellent features that the stock software doesn't.

                    Being a part time photographer I use my backup DSLR and a lighting rig as my web cam, excellent image quality but then I realised I look like a yeti as I've not had a haircut or trimmed by beard in 7 months so thought why try polishing a turd
