Summary: I switched from PC to Mac with Windows 7 running as a guest operating system a few months ago. Before making the switch, it was important to me that I knew the webcam I had would work well on the Mac side since I teach biology online and use the webcam and the online classroom's webcam function to do the dissection walk-throughs. The original Logitech auto-focus webcam I had was reported by the manufacturer as being compatible.
Summary: I got this cam for my MacBook Pro because the built-in iSight sucks. I am an adult webcam model so I needed something with a lot better quality after receiving many complaints about the iSight from my clients. I use this camera 5 days a week if not more, and the quality is excellent. It took me a long time to find a Mac comaptible high-quality camera.
Summary: This worked plug and play with my OS X home made build. Works with all software - Skype, Gchat, etc. People I have chatted with have told me the image is sharp, the mic is great for calls and installation was a breeze.
Works Great with Mac Mini & Google Voice (as a Mic) & Skype

Summary: We originally bought this for Skype but now I use it to talk to people on Google voice from my computer (you go into google voice settings and tell it to use this for the mic) It's an amazing picture quality. Everyone I talk to on Skype tells me how awesome it looks. Best webcam I have ever bought! And i've purchase 3 before for windows.
Summary: The Logitech is a smart looking, well made camera that processes clear video. It would be nice if the camera could be manually operated with it's own uploaded application but no such luck with this product. The fault of this product is the lack of instructions supplied. Instructions should be written for an audience that has never operated a product. For example: How about including information on which Mac products will operate this camera.
Summary: I bought this to make simple video recordings using a MacBook with better quality and more flexibility than from the built-in iSight camera. Even though sold in Apple's own stores (mine came from Amazon) it is not entirely compatible with Mac OS applications (OS 10.6.5 at the moment): 1) iMovie will not recognize the QuickCam Vision Pro (despite the 'for Mac' words in its name).
Summary: Bought this camera for my 85-year-old Grandmother to Skype with her Great Grandchildren across the country. The Mini-Mac is running OS X, 10.5. Half of the time, the picture that the computer receives from the camera is way, way too dark to be usable. The reliability factor is unacceptable.
Summary: My first experience with the Logitec webcam and it's Zeiss lens was excellent! However, when I purchased this second unit for my mom's Mac, it has been less successful. Unfortunately, it works ... by a fashion ... so I can't send it back and we are stuck with it! This is always the risk you take with giant companies such as Amazon. The second logitech camera doesn't auto focus very well. It has great low light sensitivity but most of the time the image is just blurry!
