NEAT LITTLE WEB CAM
DANE 1000, Amazon
19 February 2013
Summary: I CAN'T TELL YOU THE SPECS OF THIS CAM BUT IT IS NEAT.I LIKE THE WAY YOU CAN CLICK PUSH THE CAM BACK IN TO PROTECT FROM DUST...CAME PACKAGE NICE BUT IT REQUIRES A SOFTWARE IN WHICH I RECEIVED BUT THE COMPUTER STORE THAT SOLD ME A COMPUTER SOLD ME ONE WITH FAULTY ROM BUT FOR WHEN I AM READY I WILL SEE IF I CAN BY PASS THAT AND JUST DOWNLOAD SOFTWARE AND INSTALL ON MY CPU.
Summary: I always appreciated photos and videos, but, sometimes, i couldn't a good quality of images. Thus, i have tried to innovate my webcam here for another with better resolution and performance of images. I decided then, acquire a webcam of the Microsoft with 2.0 Megapixel and test the images through it. My 1º disappointment was that the webcam came with a usb cable very short and it was only possible to install in my laptop.
Summary: Just bought and installed this product, poped the installation CD in and says my product has compatability issues with windows 7.....ok.....downloaded updated software...Turned on the software, here were my resolution options for video 320 x 120 640 x 480 800 x 600 Resolution options for pictures 2mp 8mp The main reason I bought this over the nx-3000 model was because it was advertised as a 2.0 mp for video. WRONG..it is NOT 2.0 MP for Video!
Summary: The video quality is great, camera mounts perfectly, its quick and simple to setup, although with vista you need to download the new driver from microsoft which is painless. The audio has a lot of static interference. I would recommend this camera with a seperate headset or microphone.
Nice Picture Quality, but MANY Compatibility Issues

Summary: I was pretty disappointed by this webcam. It has relatively good picture quality & it's small & compact, but I spent my whole afternoon trying to install it. First of all, the CD that it came with didn't work for Vista, so I had to find drivers on the Microsoft site. Second, I don't really use MSN, so I had a huge deal of trouble using it with other non-Microsoft programs.
Summary: I bought this webcam so when I'm away from my family I can still chat with them 'face-to-face'. I didn't want to haul around an orb or other awkward cam so this seemed like the perfect fit. I will get this camera working, I don't doubt that. But it has been a huge headache up to this point. My windows 7 RC Desktop hates the thing and despite using the newest drivers available, the computer refuses to do anything with the camera images.
Okay but a few details that are left out of the advertising

Summary: - Video quality is reasonable for the price - nice range of resolutions for video transmission as well as still shots - fixed focal length - wide angle, but with some electronic zoom,pan,tilt capabilities - has settings for brightness, contrast, saturation etc. - works with skype but without the effect/hats/icon features - physical lens enclosure -- probably the only sure way to prevent hackers from viewing an image at any time.
Summary: I have had many webcams over the years and have pretty much stuck with logitech. I bought this because it was on sale and it was a 2 megapixel camera. Other than not being a fan of microsoft bundling camera features to work with its messenger for example, this is a step above most webcams in terms of features. Having said that, I would not pay a premium for it as other webcames can be had cheaper and with the same features (except the 2 megapixel resolution).
Summary: This camera offers a decent image and a lot of interesting functions. But if you only need video conference online, probably this camera is way too "good". $40 one can also offer you same quality. Extra features won't help in online video conference. Another thing is it's not friendly to thinkpad. The hook on the back is a little bit too small. T60 is barely OK, T43 and below model users, forget it.
Summary: Below is my review of the camera but I just want to "up" the rating to four stars. I've got more bugs worked out of the camera and it does work pretty well. Below was written before the bugs were cleared up. Received the webcam but the wire was loose and wouldn't record the voice with a video some of the time. The quality of the voice was lower in pitch and lagging behind a one minute (saved to my hard drive) video by about one second.
