Great quality wide angle video but mic was a letdown
8 July 2014
Summary: I purchased this for a conference room where we do some conference calls via Skype - The wide angle lens captures a good view of the room with very nice quality. Simple plug and play installation with Windows 7. Cons: The mic was not sensitive enough to capture voice clearly around the room but we had a tabletop mic we were planning to use that we used instead.
Summary: the wide angle lens is nice. the camera is really lite and doesn't fit thin laptops well.640x480 is not a great experience. but it works and is easy to get running. no autofocus but cant beat the price for wide angle.
Nice wide angle - only ok video quality - odd mount
Just a guy, Amazon

Summary: The best part of this camera is the fact that it is a nice wide angle. The video quality is only OK, far from high def and zooming in leaves you with a pixelated mess. The mount is very odd - although I have seen it before on other cameras. It does not fit well on a monitor or anything other than a flat table. The camera is so light it often gets knocked over by a slight tug on the cord. It is ok and the price is good. Not the best web camera I have used.
Summary: This cam is great. Very small and compact. About the width of 4 computer keyboard keys. Very lightweight. Just plug it in and Windows does the rest. Use any standard webcam software to view, like AmCap. Or drop it into Blue Iris and use it as an inexpensive security cam. Its got a glass lens, so the optics are pretty good. The exposure controls are a little lacking, but it's all auto, so that's fine.
Summary: I am pretty good at installing software but this webcam was a nightmare. After my first installation of drivers/etc. on my laptop, the audio would not record with a video. I then installed it on my desktop and it did work but not very well. The video quality looked like it was from one of those security camera. The webcam was intended for use on my laptop. So I uninstalled the software on my laptop and reinstalled.
Conclusion: With plenty of light, video on the WideCam 320 looks quite good even if I don’t, but there’s no webcam on the market today that can improve this mug. When moved into a low-light environment, the image quality drops as the camera tries to use the available light in the room to display the subject. A lot of the sharpness and clarity is lost and the amount of blur is increased when the subject moves, but this is to be expected.
Excerpt: Камера отлично справляется со своими функциями. Когда мы ее купили, то не обратили внимание, что микрофон встроенный, по-этому купили дополнительно микрофон. Обратите на это внимание. Брали в основном ради общения в скайпе, но и просто снимки делает отлично. Объектив камеры f=2.4 mm. В комплекте с камерой есть установочный диск, но мы его, кажется, даже не запускали. Компьютер сам распознал новое устройство. Единственный небольшой недостаток, так это крепление камеры.
