Summary: I have used a generic webcam (free from Earthlink ages ago), then "upgraded" to another generic "Digigr8" gooseneck CMOS sensor webcam. I have to say I am pleased with this Philips CCD sensor webcam. The picture is crisp and sharper than the previous ones used -- you certainly get what you pay for!
Summary: I am in the desktop video conferencing business. As such I find it puzzling why any webcam would need over 30 FPS. In most cases, you just can't tell the difference. That said, I still found the full-motion video quality to be quite good with this camera.
Mac compatible, ok picture, bad for notebooks (mounting)

Summary: I got this for a mac, since it was one of the only CCD-sensor webcams I could find that worked on mac with 3rd party drivers (check out macam). It works solidly, and once I found the image settings and adjusted them the image is ok.
Summary: Video quality is brilliant even in poor light Picture color is rich Face tracking is very impressive, but this is not much of practical use as the focus keeps changing with the smallest moves also. Does not sit properly on the laptop. Just hangs and falls whenever I adjust the LCD's position.
Excerpt: A very neat little web cam with a great picture - even in low light conditions. The sound works really well, as does the face tracking feature (it tracks your movement to keep your face in the centre of the shot). This is definitely an impressive cam. Now the negatives..
Summary: Be careful with the specs for this camera. It is essentially the same internally as the ToUcam Pro II PCVC840, that is a 640x480 resolution USB 1.1 camera. The camera chip is the Sony ICX098 BQ CCD a 640x480 sensor so it only achieves the 1.3MP resolution by interpolation.
Excerpt: Jag köpte min kamera för 3 månader sen i hopp om att jag hade gjort ett bra köp. Ack ack ack vad jag hade fel. Min kamera började efter ungefär en veckas chattande och camande på den välkända chatprogrammvaran msn messenger att hacka.
Pros: Bra stillbilder
Cons: Hackar, drivrutiner funkade inte felfritt med msn messenger
