This webcam was a gift to me last year. From the moment I saw it from it's packaging, I knew immediately that I have a great product. Just from the looks of this particular Logitech webcam, you will get the feel of the technology incorporated in it. It's very easy to use, just install the compact disc that comes with it and you're ready to go. It easily clips to the top portion of the screen of your notebook or you could simply mount it to the stand that comes with it. The software installed is user friendly as well. Packed with capabilities that you don't get on you're regular webcam. It has video effects to add fun in using it and a privacy shade should you decide anytime that you don't want to be seen in a certain moment while you are using it. It has a high performance 2 megapixel Carl Zeiss Lens that delivers image in such great detail and clarity. The autofocus adjusts almost immediately when the object in focus moves. But it's not very composed in focusing in close range. Like, for instance you want to focus on a document--it will be hard to read. It has a face tracking capability to make sure that you are always in focus of the camera even when you are moving. It also has RightLight feature that adjusts the lighting in the video to optimize visibility and clarity even in dim or back light conditions. After using it, you can easily put it in its protective pouch that comes with it. It is compatible with Yahoo Messenger, Skype, Windows Live Messenger, AOL, and other instant messaging application.
