Webcasts are a great way to share your work and knowledge with other photographers, but if you're using a tired old webcam from five years ago you're likely coming off kind of fuzzy. If you want to clear up the connection, go with Logitech's HD Pro Webcam C910 which lets you record in full 1080p HD video and make video calls in 720p HD. Meanwhile, Logitech's Fluid Crystal technology is designed to transmit smooth, jitter-free motion in your video feeds along with bold but accurate colors.

You'll also sound loud and clear thanks to the dual microphones on either side of the webcam's lens. It's amazing how much these attachable cameras have come down in size and the multi-featured C910 is no exception. Just 25mm thick, the discreetly designed webcam won't dangle precariously from the top of your computer like an old shoe. Times have changed, after all.

And as with all of Logitech's latest models, the C910 offers easy-to-use features including one-click uploading to Facebook and YouTube. There's also a way to take snapshots, with the C910 capable of recording 10-megapixel photos.

Logitech's HD webcams are Skype-certified but unfortunately only compatible with Windows-based PCs. But as anyone with a recent Mac knows, Apple already gives you a very decent webcam built into your computer. Windows users looking to get the most out of their video calls and webcasts, on the other hand, should definitely consider upgrading to the C910.

Cost: $100
