Reviews and Problems with Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro

Great when it works, terrible the rest of the time
26 October 2010
Summary: I'll start by getting all the PROs out of the way. In terms of sharpness, picture quality, color, this is the best webcam I've ever used. Definitely better than iSight cameras. I just plugged this into my USB port and all of my video apps, instantly recognized it. Zero set up required. (I tested this with iChat, Skype, FaceTime, GoogleTalk, Yahoo Messenger, Quicktime Player) The autofocus usually keeps me in focus and my background soft.
Conclusion: PROS: Plug and play. No software required (see cons). The only reason I didn't give it one star was because it's super easy to use and just works (like most Mac stuff) CONS: No software included. For the markup that I paid for a specifically Mac product, I would hope I would get some sort of software that would allow me to get all the functionality out of it that it claims to have.
Summary: This is the best webcam you can find for Mac. Two major drawbacks though: 1. On Mac OS/X 10.5.7 desktops after the computer comes out of sleep mode the camera is not recognized anymore. To fix this one would have to re-boot or unplug and plug the camera again - Extremely annoying 2.
Summary: Don't buy this if you have a new Mac Mini (3/09 or higher) which is what I have. It looks great, and you would think that not needing drivers would be a good thing, but after staying on the phone with Apple for 2 hours they came to the conclusion that there's an incompatibility with the internal hardware on the newer Macs.
Summary: I bought this camera for video conferencing using my MacBook Pro. (iSight is a poor camera). This camera works great for iChat & Quicktime, but it is NOT flash compatible. Any web-based conferencing application that uses flash will not be able to see this camera! I confirmed this with Logitech tech support. Otherwise, this is a terrific camera - 100% improvement over the built-in iSight.
Summary: J'ai reçu cette webcam aujourd'hui et l'ai mise sur mon mac mini, eh bien je suis très déçu par la qualité de l'image très mauvaise, ce n'est pas net, c'est comme si un voile persistait devant l'image.
