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...
Pros: There seems to be some confusion about the differences between this camera and the 9000. The 9000's autofocus and auto-exposure features are software controlled. Rather than write OS X drivers, Logitech opted to use hardware controls for the Mac version, which obviously incurs an additional cost....
Summary: It works with Quicktime Pro great, although an occasional unplug/replug might be needed if you have two programs open or something. I'm pretty sure this is the best you can do for the Mac at this point.
Pros: The cam is probably the best for making standard web cam stuff... if you want something better than what came with your Mac, this is it. There are only two or three top models, and for the Mac this may be the only one. The lighting enhancement and colors are probably the best you'll find. Adjusta...
Cons: Don't be fooled with the HD... if you need HD, you need a whole other setup. Sure, maybe you can get 5 frames a second or such, but the cam and the computers today are not set up for real HD web cam shoots. Again, don't buy this thinking you'll be getting HD web cam quality with a normal frame rate.
Great Mac Webcam for My Laptop, But Could Be Better
23 November 2009
Summary: I have a PowerBook G4 (1.67 GHz, Leopard OS 10.5) and this WebCam was exceptionally easy to start using. Like others have noted, it really is simply "plug & play." I've been using it with Skype, and the quality of the visual is very good, and the microphone is good, too (others have commented the...
Summary: Having read that the Vision Pro is the first webcam to include hardware autofocus and light correction - thus avoiding the no-compatible-software issues that Mac users have had to deal with when using other Logitech cameras - I gave this one a try. Overall it delivers the goods.
Summary: Since Apple no longer makes its most excellent (but overpriced) iSight Firewire camera, this is the next best thing. I simply plugged mine in and began using it in less than a minute. The color and exposure are excellent. The downside is the badly designed mounting bracket. Or is it a handle?
Summary: This is an excellent webcam for the price. It does not, however, live up to its hype. For example, it does not directly support iMovie. QuickTime Player 10 can capture video from it, at 1600x1200 pixels and between 6 and 10 fps. There is a Java-based program available on the web, BTV ([...
Summary: Resolution excellent if you have good internet signal. No software to customize the camera like the Windows version does. Easy installation. Michrophone is excellent, but again no software to calibrate to your voice etc like the Windows version does. You can buy it confidently it's worth the money.
Summary: Dislikes: There is a button on the side of the camera but it does nothing and there was no manual that explains it. It would be nice to be able to overide the Autofocus. Full HD for the Mac would be great also. I don't think it stands up on your table very well.
