Bad Image Quality
28 December 2009
Summary: If you can get this webcam in the $10 range, then it's a good buy, because the poor image quality cannot justify spending anything more on it. It installed without any problem, but Contrast is bad in low light situation, and even with good lighting the picture is very grainy.
Summary: I bought this camera on another site for five bucks after rebate. If I had to pay the full price, then I probably would not have bought it. The camera is good in moderate to bright light. However low light (at night) picture quality is very bad.
Summary: In looking for a camera to point out the window, I bought and tried this one. Not the right choice. It does most things well--recognized by XP without drivers (shows up as a video input device under My Computer), very compact, nice picture quality, long cord, and a manual focus ring.
Summary: Got it cheap so I can't complain. Quality is decent and it works as long as the lighting is good. A poorly lighted room will make the camera virtually worthless, so if you're in a darker room or one that has a lot of sun coming in (back lit) then you're gonna be disappointed.
Summary: Like other reviewers, I got this camera cheap through rebate. This is my first webcam, so I can't compare it with others. The image quality seems sufficient with good lighting, but does appear grainy in low light conditions. The worst part about this camera is the software.
