Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 Review
5 April 2010
Summary: The LogitechWebcam Pro 9000 is a well-designed and easy-to-use device. Best of all, the Carl Zeiss lens, autofocus, and Logitech's RightLight technology combine to produce HD video that is spectacular for a webcam.
When taking photos or videos with a digital camera, you want to be able to adjust the settings to your liking and change the settings based frequently. When using a webcam, most of the time you just want it to work quickly and easily.
Summary: A cam icon sits in your icon tray; double clicking it opens the QuickCam control panel. From here you have complete control over your webcam features and settings. Here we find a privacy shade as well as several video effects to use in conjunction with the cam; Avatars, Face Accessories and Fun Filters.
These are just a few of the video effects. The Avatars are really neat in the fact that they track your facial movements.
Excerpt: Logitech has done it again, and I am impressed! Those of you who are regular viewers of my reviews know it takes quite a camera to impress me. The new Webcam 9000 is a superb camera in all respects.
Pros: Excellent quality image, Works well across all lighting conditions, RightLight® technology built in, Wide selection of resolutions, Wide screen modes with included drivers, Carl Zeiss Optics
Excerpt: A while ago, having a webcam was considered a luxury; nowadays, with VoIP technology and the instant messenger boom, the peripheral ceased to be considered superfluous and became almost essential in this world of social networking, online dating and virtual meetings. Gone is the time of sphere-shaped webcams that blurred the user’s face – now the market has some pretty advanced choices, like the top tier option from Logitech, the QuickCam Pro 9000.
Excerpt: This is the first of the "thousands" series cameras by Logitech (3000, 4000, 5000, 9000) to break from the eyeball style. (I wonder where the 6000 and 7000 went?) The 9000 looks very much like the Fusion, except there has been a change in the stand. Instead of being bendable rubber, the 9000 has a stand similarly shaped to the Fusion, but of hard plastic, with a center tongue which can be used to stabilize the camera on a flat panel screen, or flipped up to allow the...
Pros: True 2 mega pixel image sensor, True auto focus, not fixed focus, USB Video class compliant, Certified for Windows Vista, Mac version availabe, includes hardware auto focus and Right Light
Cons: Focus across image not totally flat, Odd color balance with my red long johns, comes out pink, Requires Windows XP or later
Excerpt: As we said before, it’s been a while since we got excited by a webcam, but a demo of the Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 has caught our attention. Equipped with a Carl Zeiss optic (which also sells optics to Sony and Nokia, among others), this webcam has a very good image quality – much better in fact than the Quickcam Pro 4000, the Logitech webcam that I owned before I switched to the Apple iSight.
Conclusion: This is one of the best, if not THE best webcam on the market. The Rightlight and Rightsound technique do wonderes for this webcam. As we also saw the video and picture quality is awesome with the camera, remember that you need a decent internet connection to be able to use it full out. You also get some cool little features like video effects and fun filters that you can play around with.
