I had a similar problem with my c920 and the ros usb_cam node ---- VERY low frame rate (~5fps). On top of that, the H264 option didn't work for my c920 with the usb_cam node. Try these settings, it gave me full frame 1920x1080 with 30fps on usb_cam node. Notice the pixel format is mjpeg. Using these settings, I was able to just rosbag the /usb_cam/image_raw/compressed topic and display it in rviz just fine.
