Communication has never been as easy as today where almost everything can be done electronically. Before, to be able to talk to someone via video phone, you would need very powerful satellite equipments. But now, you can simply go onto the internet and talk via webcam. There are numerous webcams out there but only a few stands out. Among them is Logitech’s Quickcam Ultra Vision.
So what makes Logitech’s Quickcam Ultra Vision different from the others? On the top of the list would be the video and picture quality. The camera is capable of displaying and receiving 4 megapixels. Since Quickcam Ultra Vision can use the USB 2 interface, it won’t have any problems sending data between the PC and the camera. Just make sure that your computer does have USB 2 ports. Aside from the quality of the pictures, the speed and response time of the camera is excellent. The movements are really smooth and it’s not that far away from looking as if you’re actually talking to the person right in front of you. It can run at 30 frames per second.
Aside from the picture and video quality, there are other neat features such as the right light technology which automatically adjusts lighting for you. It’s very helpful if you’re just in your room with dim lights. You can take pictures as well using its snapshot feature. You can press the snapshot button at the side of the camera just like a digital still camera and your picture will automatically be saved onto your computer.
It has very clear audio input and whoever you’re speaking to can easily understand what you are saying. It does capture even background sounds but you won’t find it as disturbing as it sounds on a regular telephone.
The camera can also be easily set up using Logitech’s software. You can adjust the microphone’s sensitivity; you can set the quality of the video and test them before actually using them for transmitting videos. Plus, it’s compatible with almost any of the most famous messaging services such as Skype and Yahoo Messenger! A video call is just a few clicks away!
It can also be easily mounted on top of your monitor with its adjustable clip regardless if you have a CRT or an LCD-type monitor. As for its price, it’s available at around $85-$95. You just have to look around to see if you can find a better deal. It’s still widely available at your favorite electronics and online stores.
There are very few webcams that stand out among the myriad of available webcams out there. Logitech’s Quickcam Ultra Vision won’t disappoint if you want to have clear video transmittal using your computer. My family and I have been using this camera to communicate halfway around the globe and we’re truly impressed with its performance and quality.
