QuickCam Ultra Vision
8 August 2007
Excerpt: . The image beats everything I have tested to this date, including my $1,500 StarDot netcam MP. The image is crystal clear and the new RightLight 2 technology is amazing. Even with a lamp behind my head, my face was not too dark, and neither was the lamp badly overexposed. The daylight outside the window was even handled without very much overexposure.
Pros: Extremely good quality image, Very good image in very low light, Good mounting system, Light weight cord, Mega pixel image sensor, USB 2, Fast frame update
Cons: Software uses too much CPU time, Requires a late model computer, Fixed focus lens, No swivel with mounting bracket, A bit higher priced than others (but worth it)
Summary: This product stands as Logitech's top of the line web cam. At the retail price of $129.99. It may be a bit expensive to some, but those who consistently communicate with long-distance relatives or friends, will overlook the price. Otherwise, you may want to consider Logitech's other excellent QuickCam web cams that may fit your budget. The Ultra Vision's 1.3 Megapixel sensor provides the needed clarity that plagues most other web cams.
Conclusion: The Logitech QuickCam Ultra Vision is nice, just the ability to see the person on the other end is a great treat, especially if it’s someone you have not seen in ages. Although the video capabilities were not impressive, I feel it was more a result of my connection which is kind of slow by DSL standards. But going beyond just video chat sessions, I was pleased with the web cams range of capabilities.
Pros: Compact Modern Design that’s flexible and adjustable, Certified for Windows Vista integrates well with existing technologies built in to the OS such as Windows Photo Gallery and Moviemaker., Supports a wide range of online and instant messaging services., Adjustable Camera Lens, Snapshot and Quick Video Buttons, QuickCam Capture Software – Avatar and face accessory software, Good focus technology, Certified Windows Vista
Cons: Flexible rubber clip does look or feel 100% secure when fitted on top of LCD monitors such as Notebook computers, Installation and configuration phases are bit too much; I just want to start using the device as quickly as possible., 4 Mega pixel photo qualities are not that impressive.
