Summary: After reading and comparing other Logitech webcam models on Amazon's site, I chose this particular model sold by ShoreWireless and fulfilled by Amazon. Buyer BEWARE! The page (bottom) listing the various models includes comparisons of each webcam and what comes with each model (software bundles,...
Summary: I am using the second C510 camera that I received from Logitech. As I said the effects, and mask maker do not work at all. From what I read of others with the same problem, (and I have determinated also) certain .dll's do not load.

Pros: Very Sensitive microphone (Can be a problem), Very clear/high quality Video, Decent Fps, Small
Cons: Dodgy Clip, Mic Sensitivity, Dodgy wire placement
Summary: a great webcam at a sensible price; howebver when I installed it on my (oldish) laptop I discovered there was not enough memory (now upgraded) and then not enough disk space (ok I'll upgrade it - or buy a better laptop) The installed software (bloatware)takes up more space than I had expected.

Summary: It's undoubtedly a good camera providing a very sharp image. But it's difficult to fix to my laptop and the operating instructions are not clear so I have to mess about with it to get the images of both sides displayed. It also has a tendencey to spurn Skype and try to get one onto its network.
