In this age of video conferencing and online socializing, and with YouTube and vlogging now a major part of our culture, webcams have become commonplace at work, out in the field, and in our homes. A decent stand is practical, aids stability, and is essential for achieving good results from your camera. Here we have ranked the best according to their aesthetics, versatility, quality, and value.

Editor's Notes

May 07, 2020:

Whether used for video blogging, conferences at work, recording video clips and stills, video security, or anything else, webcams are undoubtedly a useful item in the digital age. They can even be used by healthcare professionals to capture arterial pulse rates with a high degree of accuracy, and special models with low light capabilities are used by astrophotographers to document the sky at night. Any one of these applications requires a good mount to keep the webcam stable, tidy, and fixed in focus.

The webcam stands in this ranking cover a wide range of prices, and some, such as the Mama Win Mini Tripod and the Regetek Camera Tripod are easily affordable and perfectly suitable for desktop or domestic use. Others, including the Crab Clamp Fixed Clip and the Geekoto Ultra Compact are made of high-quality aluminum alloy and are portable, and well-suited to people who stream or make footage out in the field.

An important consideration as a buyer is the type of footing or attachment that suits your requirements. For instance, the Forevercam Magnetic Mount has a magnetic base that is suitable for attaching to vehicles and other metal surfaces; the Amada Ring Light Mount has a sprung clip, making it ideal for attaching to the sides of tables or desks; and the AceTaken Wall Mount must be screwed into place, making it a good choice for those who use their camera in a static location.
