Summary: I purchased the F100 because normal web cams just have too narrow of a field of view. This is especially annoying when video chatting with my parents and having my wife and daughter around. The Genius F100 has about 120 degrees field of view which is much much better than the usual 70-80 deg for most web cams. Be advised though, 120deg might be a bit too much for you. You can definitely see the so called "fish-eye" effect with this wide of an angle.
