Summary: The item that was send was not item advertised... Item advertised was Creative 1080p HD & item received was a cheaper version of their product & no notification or product info enclosed. I was extreme disapointed by this quality of service...
Summary: This is a very good quality webcam. The picture is very clear, the sound is acceptable. For the price, I feel you're getting your money's worth. I now own 2 of them for two different computers.
Summary: I wrote this review for the Logitech C920, but since it compares it head to head with the Creative Live! Socialize HD camera I owned before it, I'm including the review here too: I owned this Creative camera for about 6 months until I was lucky enough to upgrade from Windows to Mac, which this camera didn't support.
Summary: This camera is excellent once the autofocus is disabled. The sound quality is excellent. In linux the autofocus is hopeless unless the lighting is perfect and the subject is exactly in the centre. If you are using Debian or Ubuntu linux, the focus is fixed as follows : First install the control software (only this step needs to be done as root) # apt-get install uvcdynctrl You can list the possible webcam controls with # uvcdynctrl -c Open the program that you want to...
Summary: This camera zooms in and out constantly even when I'm perfectly still, and a light source is behind the camera. Compared with my other webcam a Logitech. The Creative Web camera HD1080 is frustrating and useless.
Summary: This camera makes recording anything longer than 30 secs a problem. It continuously focuses with no way to adjust or turn off the auto focus feature. The image is NOT HD quality and the sound quality is terrible. I cannot believe I spent this much money on a lemon.
Summary: Well... This is a great cam for the price. In Windoze 7 it runs very good. The autofocus works well and the color and effects that the software provides are kind of fun to mess with. The picture is very clear. On the other hand. running with Ubuntu 11.10 the auto focus goes on the fritz and the video will lock up using Skype and Gmail Video chat. There are only the effects that come with Cheese. The sound is very clear in both operating systems.
Summary: Don't drop this webcam because the lens will crack. I accidentally dropped it and the lens just cracked. If this happens you guys should just take the glass off. But other than that it's pretty good. The focus is great but if you use it with Mac it would look weird.
