A great camera with a good price

Excerpt: Since I am an overseas student from Indonesia, I need a good web camera that can support my video conference with my family in Indonesia. Since the internet connection on Indonesia is not to good, the average speed of the real internet connection in Indonesia is just 100kbps, so I need a camera that can give me good resolution. This camera has provide me with a quality that I need on a video camera, that is high resolution graphics.
Excerpt: Say hello to the world with this Logitech Quickcam E 3500 Simple, easy and good are three words in which I can describe this webcam from Logitech. Since a while now I had a webcam and I think this is actually my second one. The first one broke after a few years of usage and since I love talking to friends over the internet I had of course get my self a new one. I have this webcam for quite some while now and it never let me down since the moment I bought it.
Summary: I needed a new Vista compatible Webcam so I looked at a lot of reviews on here. I though that the reviewer "Ozman" must have had a faulty cam as other reviewers said it was a great little cam for the price. I previously used a Logitch Quickcam which has served me well until now and thought I would get the E3500 having consulted the reviews. I live in Spain and it was cheaper on Pixmania here. It looks good and there was no problem with the instalation.
Summary: If you want a high quality webcam, spend alot more money. The Logitech E3500 is a nice cheap camera, the quality can be optimized with the right settings and of course having good lighting where you intend to use it. It comes with some capture software and allows you to add effects to the video in real time. This is amusing for around 5 minutes but nothing special. I haven't used the microphone on it alot because I have a aerparate mic but it sees to work fine.
Summary: A very easy to set up piece of equipment. My computer is so old and slow that the image freezes occasionally but the end result is good. I expect a better result with more modern equipment. I purchased this after reading a number of reviews and this was widely recommended.
Summary: I just brought this webcam to be used through MSN messenger. It was very easy and quick to install and to configure. It looks good as it is quite small. As I have a very fine laptop screen the clip does not give a very secure fit but is satifactory with a little fiddling and no big knocks. The image quality is fine for the use with MSN and definately good enough quality for the price.
Summary: Got this to use with Skype so needed both a camera and microphone. No problem setting it up. Decent length USB cable means it can sit comfortably on top of the monitor (bracket folds out nicely for old CRT type monitors) and the cable easily reached the system unit beneath the desk. Manual focus is fine - you adjust it once and leave it. Decent depth of field anyway. Microphone works well too and no problem with feedback from speakers when used with Skype.
Summary: Purchased Logitech QuickCam for my wife to use with Skype. Quick and easy to install, just need to ensure your settings are set onto the Webcam. Delighted with quality, price was good at time of purchase, as on special offer, but increased a day later. Now my wife not only speaks to, but sees friends and family not only in the UK, but all over the world for FREE !!!! Absolutely delighted with product.
