Summary: Good webcamera. It has a CCD sensor for capturing images (the same type used in digital cameras), which provides better quality than the CMOS ones. I was able to make it working in Linux without much work (I'm running ubuntu 9.10 karmic 64 bit) and I just had to load the module for the phillips webcam with "modprobe pwc" using the shell console.
Summary: I like that there is a telescope eyepiece adapter available for this web cam, I would like to see more adjustments available in the capture software since I use this for astronomy. Overall a good buy for the price!
Summary: I like this camera compared to a couple other I tried. Good picture quality, however "my" voice lacks clarity once recorded, maybe its me. I did know that there's an improved version or upgraded version available but I liked the price of this one.
Summary: We wanted to try this webcam to see how it would work with our system. It works great, and it was easy to install with the software that was provided. We use it to visit with our family around the country.
Great Webcam - Strong Zoom, Microphone (Sharp Images)
29 March 2006
Summary: The webcam has a strong digital zoom, built-in microphone, and high-quality VGA CCD sensor. The picture quality is decent, not super clear but you'll get a crisp image. The microphone quality is excellent. The setup was fast and easy, very user friendly. The face tracking feature could use some improvement as it seems a little sketchy.
