I've been using this webcam for about a year now and I am satisfied with its design and performance so I find it worth to recommend. This webcam is very usable at home because we use yahoo instant messenger to communicate with our relatives abroad. Before, we are using email, 3G phone, or text messaging to communicate. But using this A4 tech webcam which also features its built-in microphone we can now see and talk to our love ones real-time, with no other extra cost on phone calls. My family can now stay in-touch as often as we want.
What I like in this web camera is its bendable, so you can rotate it at any direction. You can easily adjust the camera itself for a better view. Just rotate or bend the adjustable and bendable camera handle. I can also hide my camera if needed because of its sliding cover. It has a snapshot button dedicated to take picture in just one click.
With regards to the image quality, it has a built-in auto adjust image feature which means the camera automatically adjust itself to be able to display best image possible. Like what I said earlier, it has a built-in microphone, so you don't need to have a separate microphone when using a voice chat online. Just plug the camera to the USB and the microphone jack on slot.
The package contains a mini CD containing the product driver/installer. You must connect first camera to the USB slot and it will automatically prompt you to install the new found hardware. Just specify on the file location of the needed file. In this case, select the CD drive then click â€œconfirmâ€ to complete the manual installation. Another way to install is open the installation CD and click the setup folder and run setup file. After successful installation, a window prompt will appear and ask you to click the â€œfinishâ€ button and replug the camera.
Camera Type is Colour Still Image 640 x 480. Features auto white balance with CMOS640Ã—480, 350K Pixels Image Sensor, Min Focus Range10 cm Angular Field of View (degree)54 Lens Construction. Overall I find my A4 tech webcam worth recommending. Itâ€™s easy to setup, the camera resolution and speed is okay.
