Logitech/Logicool StreamCam C980GR

  • Logitech is marketed as Logicool in Japan, that's also written on the package
  • This webcam is not cheap, but does 1080p@60Hz
  • No hacks required, plug & play on Fedora33 :)
  • Note: the camera will fetch energy as long as it's connected, so disconnect it if not needed for a longer time. Linux tools can not reliably tell you that, I learned this from the usb-c power meter I use.
