Sturdy, well-made but drivers need updating.

  • 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! My favorite feature is the face-tracker; it zooms in automatically if you lean back on your chair, and zooms back out if you come too close to the camera.

Decent webcam

  • 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. I don't like the design of the housing, it didn't mount very securely to either my desktop LCD or my laptop LCD. Overall, this is a fine webcam, but for the money, I'd go with something else.

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. The CCD sensor definitely helps out low-light performance over cheaper webcams (like a cheap Creative Webcam for Notebooks used earlier), but the image still doesn't compare to a Creative Webcam Ultra.

  • 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. Den slutade att filma, hacka i filmen och stängde ibland av hela messenger och jag loggades alltså ut. Jag testade utan och det hela gick mycket smidigare. Jag har nu gått tillbaka med den till samma affär som jag köpte den på.
  • Pros: Bra stillbilder
  • Cons: Hackar, drivrutiner funkade inte felfritt med msn messenger
