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


Highest tech cam I've owned. It has some really fun features and the picture quality is top notch. The tracking feature requires optimum and consitent conditions for smooth operation.

Some problems installing, but works well

Top Notch Product


I looked and looked before I purchased this web and PC Camera. It was the easiest setup and simply to operate with a nice GUI interface that is TSR. Picture quality is outstanding and the auto focus is a very nice feature.

Works well under certain conditions


Like most Logitech products, the fit, finish, and installation are perfect. However, in this case, the product doesn't fit the application. I bought it to use in conjunction with webcasts and to support speech recognition. The camera is fine, but the...

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.
