Mac OSX 10.8.5 - Like a Champ!
By S. Gonzalez
[[VIDEOID:mo43P2NE1P48GE]]I have a Macbook Pro with OSX 10.8.5 and it worked like a Champ straight from the box. I downloaded the APP store software and you can see the video for yourself.

Plus and Minus from the C920
I have had a C920 for awhile, and it is quite good. It's used 24/7 as a camera to run surveillance video of the front gate in conjunction with Contacam. But, the C930e promises sharper video resolution and being a couple of years newer, it seemed like a good upgrade.
Also, I did read many of the comments in advance of purchase. Here's a few other things you should know, particularly when compared to the C920:
* With the C930e you basically download the drivers and a camera controller. You do NOT get the Logitech Webcam Software (LWS) as a "recommended" installation. Their intent is that you are already using top-grade "BUSINESS' software, so you won't really need the LWS. This is notable because the LWS has the quick snapshot program with allows you to take still photos or run video/sound and save it. Without LWS and without "business software" there is no method to record video/audio.
* I re-installed the LWS on the computer. There are warnings when you install it that "most" of the features from LWS will not be available with the C930e, but you can "skip" them. When complete, there aren't too many that I've found missing -- except one rather important feature: When using a C920, one can deactivate the camera LED. With the C930e, however, those radio buttons do not exist -- you are stuck with the dual-edged halo. Not a huge deal in many cases, but I do NOT want the light shining all night long toward the gate -- sort of ruins the "surveillance" part of "surveillance video." I will probably cover the two LED slivers with electrical tape.
* Video/audio quality: Seems better. I haven't tried a variety of background colors and much movement, but will assess that later. On initial view, it looks favorable.
* Knowing what I do now, I probably would have bought a second C920 instead of the C930e. At this point, the C930e has slightly diminished functionality for a minor improvement, with a ~$20 - $30 premium. It's all shiny and new-car-smell, but not that much better.

Best webcam option available.
I use my C930e for streaming gameplay on Twitch and making video calls to relatives out of state.
In this form factor (webcam... not other camera types) this is the best quality and value available.
- VERY WIDE FoV [field of view]. Seriously... this thing is amazing. If you are going to be doing any green screen work you will appreciate this more than other people. This will mean that you don't have to worry about the top of your head, arms, or other parts of you from falling out of the field of view and making some odd looking artifacts. For video calls it's nice that 2 people can sit 3 feet from the camera and both be entirely in the shot.
- The light to indicate that the camera is on is white. That may seem like no big deal but if the light were red or green and I would be in a low-light area it could affect the color of my skin on camera and be distracting.
- Including the lens cap is perfect. When you are wanting to be seen you can leave it open and when you are not expecting to be seen you can close it and make sure that no prying eyes can see you. In cases of auto-answer for Skype calls or other [hacking] situations you can be sure that only audio could be grabbed because this cap is solid.
- The clip for your monitor is great and securely holds the camera to your monitor or if you should choose to you could use a mini tripod.
- Auto exposure won't yield the **BEST** results. They are good but they are not perfect.
- Loses focus when you move around from time to time. You don't need to wave your hand in front of it or anything, but if your needing perfect focus while sitting in front of it you can lock focus using the setting on the Logitech app or in other software like OBS.
- The built in mic is on par with an integrated mic from a laptop at best. Not enough people realize the power of good audio ESPECIALLY when it comes to video calls or recording. There are a lot of cheap options and some better more expensive ones but if space on your desk won't allow... the built-in mic will pass.
