Excerpt: Fine high-definition picture; the microphone picks up voices well. Autofocus, but no zoom. We use it with a 60" TV and normally sit on a sofa 13' away. When the camera is mounted on the TV, the wide-angle lens shows the entire 12' wide sofa -- so our faces are tiny. At first, we sat on chairs 3' in front of the TV to make our faces larger.
Excerpt: First, and most importantly, B&H Photo C/S was exceptional, I only wish I had the name of the rep, he was extremely knowledgeable and very patient with my ?'s. Regarding the Sony camera, it installed in moments and the we were using SKYPE with our grandson within 10 minutes (SKYPE setup was the longest part of the configuration).
Excerpt: We use this camera on our TV to Skype with our children and Grandchildren. We recently moved to Arizona from Wisconsin. We were use to seeing the grandchildren frequently, now it will only be when we get to go back for a few months in the summer. So it is great to be able to see and talk with them in this manner. Nothing compares to be together in person, but this is certainly the closest thing to it.
Pros: Attractive Design, Energy Efficient, Great Picture
Cons: Difficult For Us Anyway, Difficult To Set Up
Summary: Being able to see the people you are talking to on a 55" screen is a daunting thought and this model did exactly as it said it would, Dead easy to put in place, great to use - but let down by the technology of superslow narrowband communications (although I hope that this will be fixed in the next couple of months. Would recommend this camera to anyone with a Sony TV (but check its compatibility first).
Summary: Got this for my wife to use to Skype family abroad and she absolutely loves it!! Only prob is can't get her away from the telly now!!missing all my football!!!!amd house is a tip!!!Works great,and easy to set up!!
