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.

Logitech QuickCam Orbit Webcam


Overall I was very impressed with what $100 bought. All of the webcams I had seen/used before seemed cheap and had iffy picture quality. I bought this camera for use at work to help keep me in the office instead of on the road. If I had a need for one...

Good picture quality, good frame rate, good build quality

Picture is a little washed out until you tweak the colors, face track could be better, manual adjustment buttons are slow to react

Logitech QuickCam Orbit AF Webcam


The orbit mp cam itself is very good. Installing the software is another story. Quickcam software from cd never installed properly, I had to go the website and download for a newer version of the software to fix the problem.

Great Function

Software problem

Logitech QuickCam Orbit AF Webcam


Worked good at first try on my Windows XP and AMD computer. The software loads slower than I expect but once started it works good with Skype and MSN chat. Video looks much better than other webcams that were cheaper.

Good quality. Fun software that adds mustache and other effects

Movements not very smooth

Logitech QuickCam Orbit AF Webcam


Great video quality but the webcam was not supported on my 4 month old VAIO laptop w/ Vista. Tried two of these units on two identical laptops. None of the webcams worked. It worked flawlessly on my XP desktop but would eat up a bit of CPU utilization....

High quality video, tracks movements

Jerky movements, requires higher power PCs. Was not recognized on my laptop

Logitech QuickCam Orbit Webcam


I had great hopes for this camera. It has such a cool look, and when the face tracking is enabled, it's almost freaky how it follows you. But I have to say, even though it's very sleek, well designed, and **** cool, I have decided to take mine back to...

Sleek, futuristic, great picture quality

No manual focus, No privacy lid

Logitech QuickCam Orbit AF Webcam


This webcam is excellent in terms of price and its quality. Images are very clear with real color. Webcam set up is a very easy process to follow even though you are not good at computer. The size is small so it does not take up a lot of your space.

fine image quality and small size

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.
