  • Summary: I have this exact camera. I bought it on closeout at a Tiger Direct retail store. It works perfectly with the Raspberry Pi without having to add any drivers. In fact, I just plugged it in and it worked right out of the box. I just ordered another one.

Short USB cord, software crashes

roberta markevitch, Amazon
27 May 2014
  • Summary: The USB cord is closer to about 4' or less, not 6' as the description says. Software bombs out continuously... I'm a systems engineer, know a thing or two about what I'm doing. Just an app crash every time I try and launch.

The software driver has good/manual light control.

Bruce R, Amazon
19 February 2014
  • Summary: The audio is way out of sync if that matters. I captured a video and that's all I noticed. The motion and frame rate I estimate are 13-15 FPS. What I really liked was the driver, this cam has 4X zoom, effects, and the light can be manually controlled.

Do NOT Buy!!!

JimL201, Staples
10 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Gave as a Christmas present to my brother so we could Skype. Good for a laugh since his picture was a blur or blob. Says it's 1280 x 1024 but actual resolution is 640 x 512, so it would probably work ok if you have an early 1990's monitor. He threw it away and I sent him $ to buy a decent webcam.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Poor Resolution, USB cable too short

  • Summary: I'm pretty tech savvy, but could not get this to work. And good lord, did I try! Seems likely it's just not really compatible with a Mac.

Get what you pay for.. I'm content.

TheLabrat, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: Works for what I need it for.. I broke out the camera board and created an enclosure to give my robot some vision.. I removed the push button and little mic from the board-- as it turns out that requires a 3.5mm input jack..
