Great little camera.

E. Lorenzi, Amazon
26 December 2012
  • Summary: I love the POV on this thing. Using basic POV api calls you can easly write third party software to control the device. I made a html document that allows a remote user to operate the pov and zoom abilities of the camera. The devices works great with windows 7. Just make sure you have all the current windows updates. Don't expect any help from Logitech if you contact them they will pretend they never made the device.

Logitech Quickcam Orbit

TK, Amazon
30 April 2011
  • Summary: Installation and ease of use of the unit was exceptioanally ease like all Logitech cameras. The only issue was compatibility with windows 7. Originally, I could not get the drivers on CD to run and went to the web site to review options. It appears that on many old listings that the camera could not be used with win7. I did happen onto one area at the website that did support the basic usage but the total Logitech software sweet was not availible.

Lack of Instructions, but very fun camera.

Ian "Ian", Amazon
10 October 2007
  • Summary: The lack of a good manual made this a tough set up. I had a hard time with how to turn off the the auto record feature, and figure out how the avitars work. Once figured out however, it worked really well. Picture quality is great It is the only camera that follows you if you move around the room, and it works extremely well. what really makes this camera fun are the "Avatars" and Picture effects. For U tubing, it is excellent.

All it can be

  • Summary: I just received the Orbit MP and installed it without too many problems. Unlike respondent Rochelle, mine had a headset in the box, with the software and camera stalk. The device works well enough - you have to manually turn automation on, but then face detection, auto-panning and auto-focus work well enough, just remember that backlighting and ambient noise can confuse the software during installation, once it asks you to plug the device in, so turn the television off...

Great webcam, easy set-up

Bryan Moore "Bryan", Amazon
7 April 2007
  • Summary: Whenever I read reviews for a webcam they always went from one extreme to the other; they were either great cameras with easy installation or so-so cameras with very problematic installation. I never knew what my experience would be. I found it all depends upon what computer and operating system you're using, and that you need to consider the "computer-savviness" of the user. I would rate my computer-savviness as a 5 on a scale of 1-10.

Logitech QuickCam Orbit MP Web Cam Review

K. Tse "Ultraman Forever", Amazon
4 August 2006
  • Summary: This web camera seems working pretty good, and the video quality and audio are both doing well on this unit. Compare to other Web Camera in the market, I would think this is probably a good quality web camera in the market especially this has right light and right sound technology which will make the video quality looks good even you are not in the bright environment.

9 May 2006
  • Summary: Pros: supurb video quality. cool effects, and motion tracking. Cons: video has a little lag in it. camera gets warm to the touch when idle. face tracking works good with a few glitches on timeing. uses more cpu recorces then its previous unit. Other: works with only logitech software, 3rd party controls are not supported. audio has a little noise interferance, as a small echo or static once in a while. Over All: Good Camera with lots of features.

Great camera , the best

Axel C. Rivera "gat0mog", Amazon
5 January 2006
  • Summary: I bought one from christmas and it has been awesome. Video quality is excellent, but may be too much for low speed broadband connections and software like MSN Messenger. I've yet to try it with specialized video conferencing software and better speed. Face tracking is tricky and not that useful.

Quality hardware, junky software

Rick V, Amazon
18 December 2005
  • Summary: I echo what one of the other reviewers stated. The hardware is excellent: the image is NEVER grainy, even in miserable lighting conditions (monitor reflected light only, for example). Cowbofrank dot net gives some good examples of just how good the picture is in various lighting conditions.
