Apple Compatible Web Cameras

A Mac compatible webcam can be a great addition to your Macintosh computer setup - even on an iMac or MacBook that already has a built-in iSight camera. An OSX friendly external web camera can give you far greater versatility in viewing angles and camera placement, autofocus functions, better microphones, or higher HD resolutions delivering improved video quality.

External USB Webcams For MacOS

For a webcam to have full Mac OSX compatability, it needs to conform to the UVC - USB Video Class device specification. Recent versions of MacOS Monterey, Big Sur, Catalina, Mojave and Sierra -- as well as older OSX versions like Tiger, Leopard, Lion, Mavericks and Yosemite -- include low-level OS support for any UVC compliant webcam. This adherence to, and broad adoption of the UVC video device standard by many web camera manufacturers in recent years has made true Macintosh compatibility plug and play easy. No camera driver install needed for basic camera funcitonality on any Mac that has USB 2.0 or SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and 3.1 ports.
