Reviews and Problems with Logitech QuickCam Ultra Vision

Not For Mac
14 June 2013
Summary: I couldnt' get this to work at all. As one reviewer said, the software is for PC only. That should have been warning enough. However, I'm not interested in bells and whistles either, so I thought I'd try it. After failing to get this working on my Mac-Mini, I called Logitech, and they informed me it's not even made to work on the Mac. I'm returning the product.
This thing is unusable and amazon charged 20% to return

Summary: what a lousy design. I expected this to be the same size as the quick cam fusion. It is nothing like it and huge. The pictures display pictures on Amazon are not scaled. This model is twice as big. The support brace will not hold it on anything but a flat surface. Isn't usable on a lcd flat screen or laptop. I returned it to Amazon. They charged me a 20% restocking fee. Won't be using Amazon any more.
Summary: Logitech keeps doing the same thing - they use their standard software & drivers then add some gizmo (a tripod, a robot, whatever) to make it different, but the camera is still a 640x480. Hello? Anyone at home Logitech? My laptop screen is 1920x1200 (dell 1705) - HDTV is 1920x1080 - why would you possibly STILL make a 640x480 camera? It's time for an upgrade.
Summary: i bought this item with the belief that it worked with apple computers. When i received the item the information stated it wasn't. Event though i did get a driver eventually , most of the features of the web cam didn't work so i really wasted my money. Now i really don't use it the colour is very dark and it cant be adjusted.
Ultra Vision, comes in clear, but Rightlight fails

Summary: The camera resolution would be good if the Rightlight 2 didn't make the image so dark, even with lights on. I called Logitech but was on hold forever. When they gave me the option to leave a call back number, they never called back. I returned this product and got the Logitech Communicate CTX instead. Lower resolution, but it uses Rightlight 1 which actually seems to work. One would think if Rightlight 2 didn't work, they would not push that for any of their camcorders.
Summary: My boyfriend and I were expecting the release of the Ultra Vision camera for quite some time, since for the time being we are forced to live in different cities. My first camera was the Logitech 5000 and it is a decent camera, so I was expecting some great things from this new Logitech camera. Unfortunately, I am here to report it is much worst than earlier versions. Not only does it have extremely serious software compatability issues, it is finicky and unreliable.
Summary: I "upgraded" from a Logitech 5000 - an excellent camera for the money - and expected an improvement in performance. As other reviewers noted, the image is dark, regardless of settings. There are nice features, such as head tracking, but what's the point when your viewers can't see your head? I've used web cameras since they were first available for the Mac - and this is my worst experience with image quality. Muddy and dark for $100.
Summary: This camera caused the BSOD every once in a while. Previous Logitech 5000 never did that once. Today, downloaded new software (v 10.5) from the Logitech site, and the BSOD problem occcurs every other time the camera is turned on. When the camera doesn't cause the computer to crash, the picture is okay in good lighting. It is very hard to adjust manually and the right-lite software barely makes a difference.
Summary: - LES POINTS POSITIFS : L'image et le son sont fantastiques, la fonction de suivi de visage géniale et le look tres sympa. - LES POINTS NEGATIFS : Elle est incompatible avec le chipset USB de ma carte mére (INTEL récente !) et de ce fait l'ordinateur ne démarre pas quand elle est branchée. Logitech m'a confirmé le probléme. Elle ne tient bien que sur des écrans un peu epais.
