DOA

 

The cardboard box was nice. Even brown all the way around

DOA out of the box. No Spin. Had to pay return shipping. The price dropped 30 bucks 3 days after order

Reliable webcam

 

Some apps don't seem to take advantage of the cam's full bandwith (Skype, GTalk) and seem a little laggy. For other apps (Photobooth on Mac) that can - the cam has quite excellent response.

I bought this cam because I needed something that would reliably work with Mac, Linux and Windows and this does easily (though this is mostly thanks to Firewire IIDC). I telecommute cross-country and occasionally need to do video chat ; Manual focus...

No mic - this is the only reason I knock a star/egg ; I keep the cam and tripod on a slick desk and the (somewhat stiff) firewire cable can skew the tripod ; No monitor clip ( I could maybe tape/rig the tripod to the back - but it certainly wouldn't be...

good with max/msp/jitter

 

bought the item, because it was recommanded many times on the max/msp/jitter-list for a low cost/ high efficiency solution for interactive work.my tests so far confirmed that. can output uncompressed video, so takes some load off the processor.
