Tripods For Mac Webcams With Standard Camera Mount Holes

A few select webcam models feature a standard 1/4" - 20 thread camera tripod mount. Most notably, Microsoft's premium webcam, the LifeCam Studio Pro -- and Logitech's high-end camera models including the C615, C920, C922 (with free mini-tripod), C922X (x-without mini-tripod) and the C930e include a 1/4" tripod camera mount option located in the base of their clip.

The benefits of buying an external Mac webcam with tripod mount are twofold: Image stability and precision positioning. Most Apple compatible web cameras have flimsy if somewhat usable flip-clips that all too often largely rely on gravity to cling precariously onto a computer monitor or MacBook laptop's screen. With a real tripod you can assure stable, fixed positioning that may be critical for scene continuity and a vibration-free razor sharp image during Skype sessions or YouTube video capture sessions.

There's basically 3 types of tripods:
1. Desk clamp tripods with armature or gooseneck extensions.
2. Full-size free-standing professional tripods for conferencing or staged scenes.
3. Desktop mini-tripods for close-ups and convenience.
