Canyon CNR-FWC113 is a budget 1.3 Megapixel budget webcam with microphone and adjustable stand. We've been using this webcam for couple of weeks now so we decided to share our impressions with the CNR-FWC113 in this short review. 

When we got the Dell E2314H a month ago it was clear that we will need some additional gadgets in order to make the new office configuration complete. This wonderful 23-inch Dell monitor doesn't have any web camera so I decided it would be nice to get an external USB webcam with mic for conference and Skype calls.

What I didn't expect to happen is to buy such device from the local hypermarket. Yes, I saw the Canyon CNR-FWC113 on sale while I was getting some groceries from the store and decided to give it a try.

The price was also quite appealing - I got it for only 6 Euros which looked like an amazing value to me. Usually this camera is offered for around 10-15 Euros so it was around 50% discount.

The plug and play interface of the CNR-FWC113 allows an easy and quick set up. Once I got it up and running I immediately fixed onto the monitor. That was quite easy with the flexible adjustable stand which allows various positioning of the webcam. I made couple of test Skype calls with this one already and it performs pretty well - sound was reported to be clear on the other side so was the picture.

Canyon CNR-FWC113 does very well so far but don't expect any exceptional performance as it has very basic specifications:

  • Maximum Frame Capture Rate 30 fps (640x480)
  • Interface USB 2.0

  • Width (mm) 59 mm

So, the overall impression from the Canyon CNR-FWC113 is very good, it is a good value for money webcam and it seems reliable so I can recommend it to those who are searching for a budget webcam with basic specs.

Recently I also tested the Logitech C505e which is way more expensive and offers better performance.
