The In-Your-Face Webcam

Logitech QuickCam review: Logitech QuickCam

 

Lens pans and tilts to automatically track your face; innovative design places lens at eye level; excellent low-light performance; built-in microphone.

Face tracking can be temperamental; noisy mechanical movements.

Its innovative design and mechanical face-tracking capabilities make this top-of-the-line Webcam a true conversation piece.

Cool Cam

Great camera

 

I was psyched when I saw the price drop. They are probably coming out with a new orbit model, but thing thing rocks. I skype video conference daily for work and had been using the camera on my laptop (MacBookPro). My co-workers all commented on how...

Great, but NOT SUPPORTED ON WIN 7

 

I've owned this cam for years, and found it to be great. However, I now find it is NO LONGER SUPPORTED on WINDOWS 7. I only found this out after I upgraded from Vista to Win 7.

Some problems installing, but works well

 

In Windows XP Pro the web cam did not install from disc, it had to be plugged in and pc restarted. Even so, with disc present in drive, Windows went online to get drivers. In Skype, one must turn off face tracking, or the eye fixates on the ceiling....

Product Specifications

You've never seen anything like the unique combination of form and function of the QuickCam Orbit. It features a black, ball-shaped camera that sits atop a nine-inch-high stand at your eye level. Why? So that you'll get optimal face time during your video calls or video instant messaging (IM) sessions. And when you move, it actually follows you around! The QuickCam Orbit mechanically and automatically turns left and right for almost a 180-degree horizontal view or up and down for almost 90-degree top-to-bottom view. So your smiling face will always stay in the picture.
