Hello Experts;

I need your help in finding the best WebCam with the widest angle available now in the market and the price in not a problem
I'm conduction web conferences and I need camera to take most of the room if possible with high resolution.
Kindly advise me with the best solution, it's urgent

I do have couple questions too:
1-   Does a build in mic with the webcam is better for sound quality or a separate one?
2-    What do they mean by 76 field of view ?

Thanks alot

    "Best" is often in the eye of the beholder ... but any of the better models from Logitech or Microsoft will be fine.

    Field of view is the angle that the camera captures.   Unfortunately, not all manufacturers publish the field of view angle -- for example, I've used the Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 and it has an excellent field of view, but they don't specify exactly what it is.

    I'm very satisfied with the Pro 9000 -- I think it'd work well for what you've described

    If you need one designed for notebooks, I'd use this:

    The built-in microphones are fine for most purposes -- but a separate microphone will generally be better quality.    I'd use the built-in mic initially, and if you're disappointed in the sound quality, then add a separate unit ... I suspect you won't need to do that.
