Firstly, this webcam is being sold as the first webcam to support 1080p on Skype and 720p on other video services. It's received some rave reviews already and is said to be hard to beat on quality...
Logitech's HD Pro Webcam C920 has a really impressive picture, it has to be said. It has a Carl Zeiss lens which means that it boasts great quality. The resolution is 1080p. It can take photos at 15 megapixels. It has two built-in stereo mics. The USB cable is nice and long and attached to the unit itself which is modern and sleek. It can be mounted on the top of your computer/laptop monitor or it can be used with a tripod if that's more practical for your needs.
You can start doing HD recording straight away. You just wait for the pair of blue lights to illuminate and you are ready ro roll. It comes with some amazing software - Logitech Vid HD. This offers some fun features such a motion detecting recording (see what your dog really does whilst you are at work!). You can also pan, tilt and zoom. There is a very useful auto-correction mode as well as a 'Follow My Face' feature for auto-tracking. You also have some fun effects like avatars, accessories, video masks etc most of which are ace for kids (and silly adults!).
The sound recording works really well without you having to be right up next to the unit which is a bonus.
It's really easy to set-up and you can get going straight away - it doesn't come with a CD as it's not needed. I use Windows 7 and this works a dream with that OS.
Go and treat yourself!
I am in a long distance relationship and just by saying that you will guess how important it is to skype properly to keep the romance alive. Having complete understanding of that, we decided to get the best means for us to keep in touch as much as we could. So for the very crucial skyping I decided to get the logitech HD pro webcam. It attaches to the laptop by the moveable flat parts underneath the webcam which kind of balances and rests on the back and the from of your laptop without actually clipping it or causing it any damage.
I was hooked by the HD feature because I wanted to be in a very good resolution so that my boyfriend could not forget what I look like, and so that we can see each other moving fluidly. And that was the case with this webcam.
In the box it comes with the manual, an installation CD and the Hi-speed USB cable. The design is really cool, when you look at it, you know it is a top quality product and knowing how good logitech makes things, I knew it was going to be a winning choice. The camera itself includes a powerful microphone, so that you do not have to keep leaning forward to say things over and over, because they cannot hear you properly.
If you combine this amazing camera with a very fast broadband, I can assure you that you will not think you are skyping. Eventually you kind of think the other person is literally in front of you.
