I recommend it

Matyas, Amazon

  • Summary: Really wide angle camera, perfect to use in the living room, so my family can see the whole room. It's not perfect to sit before it, as it makes fish eye effect, but perfect if you need to cover a wider area with one cam.

Great

  • Summary: It works as described, a decent enough wide-angle lense webcam. You do get a bit of a fish eye effect, but it's not so bad if you keep it on 720p mode.

Widescreen is an understatement.

  • Summary: The viewing angle of this camera is huge. If you want a face cam, do not get this product. However if you want to use it for family talks or conferences then it is perfect. Only problem I have with it is the further away you get from the camera the more awful the quality gets - This is to be expected of course but not quite as rapidly as this does, moving just a foot (30cm) away makes a huge difference in quality and the only place you can get the full 720p is within...

  • Summary: Really wide angle, perhaps even wider than I imagined. Worked out of the box on Ubuntu. Image quality seems decent.

Good value widecam

Patrick Carroll "Wolseley Pat", Amazon
8 July 2013
  • Summary: I needed a wide angle web cam to cover a club meeting held in a home setting, & this one has done the trick at a very good price. I'd have preferred auto-focus, as initially I've been told from the 'other end' that the image was not too clear, so now I know to tweak it beforehand to get it spot on. That apart, it's a good little bit of kit, & auto focus + wide angle seemed difficult to find at a decent price.

Really useful product for conference calling

Amazon Customer "spaatz", Amazon

  • Summary: No more crowding in front of the laptop camera for conference calls! The widecam delivers great image quality, and if placed on top of the laptop screen, will let 3 to 4 people fit into the view.

Just what I needed.

  • Summary: Good camera for wide angle needs. Clear image, but too dark by default, with easy USB connectivity and good FPS speed.

Great for video conferences

DarkPrince, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: If you run video conferences with a conference table full of people at both ends then this is the webcam for you. You can actually see most of the table at the same time with the 120 degree field of view of the webcam. If this wide angle isn't important for you then this will not be we webcam for you. The wide angle lens introduces a bit of fish eye distortion, and you will see such a wide view that you will spend your whole time wishing you could zoom in.

User Review

  • Excerpt: Купила для общения в скайп - видно всю комнату, что очень удобно. Звоним бабушке в деревню регулярно, чтобы постоянно не крутить камерой в попытке показать бегающего ребенка и куплена эта камера. Свою задачу выполняла бы и на отлично, если бы не эта дурацкая особенность отваливаться от подставки.
  • Pros: Широкий угол, живучесть
  • Cons: Постоянно отваливается от подставки и падает с полки
