The In-Your-Face Webcam

 

Expert review by:

Logitech QuickCam Orbit

 

This unusual Webcam is sure to turn heads--literally. Logitech's QuickCam Orbit's camera lens internally pans and tilts so that it can automatically follow your face. The design is cool, too: a thin, nine-inch extension rod that resembles a robot arm...

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

Pretty cool if you're an avid webcam user

 

I got this at Best Buy for $50 off the regular price (it was a return).I was really just looking for something decent to use for video chatting... I find myself using it a lot less than anticipated. The tracking gets annoying sometimes-- especially if...

Sleek, all the bells and whistles, software is decent

wish it didn't take up precious desk space, tracking gets annoying

This very expensive Webcam WILL NOT allow the user to save user defined preferences

 

When it works as advertised, this is a great product BUT, it does not save the user defined settings. AND, when used with Skype, you will often lose the microphone input which causes you to have to remove the Webcam software, and the Webcam driver...

When it works, it's a great product but, when used with Skype, you will often, very often lose the microphone input

When used with Skype, because there is no ability to save the user defined preferences, you will often, very often lose the microphone input

"Good product, little bit pricy"

 

I actually got the Orbit MP on Black Friday for $20, so for that, it was a magnificent deal. Though if I were to pay the MSRP of $110, I'd be a little put off, though I don't use it as often as other people. But the product is a good one; it'd still be...

Nice design, good functions, novel idea, hi-res

A bit pricy, the cam movements can be a little jerky and on the loud side

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.
