If your device doesn't have a built-in camera, you'll need to buy one. You can also buy an external camera if you want to improve your video quality over your built-in camera. 

 

Below is a comparison of using a built-in camera on a MacBook (left) and a Logitech C920 HD Pro Webcam (right):

 

Camera Comparison

Answer

Logitech has many webcam models available at different price points. We use their top-of-the-line Logitech C920 delivers an excellent video experience when paired with the right device and broadband. (This camera includes a microphone, but no speakers.)

 

For a lower price point, the Logitech C525 still delivers a great video experience. (This camera includes a microphone, but no speakers.)
