Cheapest 4K Webcams For Mac OSX?

Shopping for an affordable Apple compatible HD webcam that supports 4K resolutions under MacOS? When the first Mac compatible 4K web cameras like the Logitech Brio and LUMINA 4k web camera hit the market, the pricing was nearly double previous generations of premium 1080p HD webcams, and are still well over $100 USD.

However, cheap 4K webcams for MacOS like the Unzano 4K and Depstech 4K are starting to hit the market at prices that might appeal to budget-conscious Macophiles.

Unzano Cheap 4K Webcam For Mac With Digital Zoom

Wide-Angle Lens : Includes Remote & USB-C Adapter


One thing to look for in product descriptions and specifications would be a note of a cheap 4K web camera using a SONY IMX-series Starvis 8MP sensor. Over the past year or two, the cost of Sony's popular 4K image sensor has come down in price to make relatively cheap 4K web cameras possible. Other 4K indications to look for are notes that the webcam supports resolutions up to 3840*2160. Some cheap, no-name webcam knockoffs from China may lie or exaggerate about their capabilities.

Depstech Cheap 4K Webcam For Mac

Includes Mini-Tripod and Privacy Shutter


Above are examples of low-cost 4K webcams currently available on Amazon. Note that 4K webcam capture ideally requires a 5GBps USB 3.0, USB 3.1/3.2 (USB-C) connection to handle the high data rates of 4K resolution. 720p and 1080p HD webcams work fine at USB 2.0 speeds.
