The best Macbook webcam is a vital accessory if you want excellent video quality for things like Zoom calls, YouTube videos and streaming. If you own a MacBook, you're probably already aware its in-built camera isn't great, and even the 2023 MacBooks haven't seen much of an improvement. This means investing in a good external webcam is a must for high-quality videos and also allows for some more interesting visual set ups considering the camera angle isn't limited to where your MacBook is placed.

That's where this guide comes in! We've listed the best webcams on the market for MacBook users now based on user reviews, looking at functionality, connectivity and prices. We also list some more exact specs, like frame rate and picture quality. We've made sure to include options that branch all budgets without impeding quality too.

A chance call in 2005 led to Jim taking charge of Computer Arts' website and developing an interest in the world of graphic design, and eventually led to a move over to the freshly-launched Creative Bloq in 2012. Jim now works as a freelance writer for sites including Creative Bloq, T3 and PetsRadar, specialising in design, technology, wellness and cats, while doing the occasional pantomime and street performance in Bath and designing posters for a local drama group on the side.
