I bought it because I wanted the sensor and not to use as a webcam but did try it out and it seems like a nice webcam, Good quality images, autofocus seems to work without a lot of hunting, good for low-light.
It works fine out of the box, software installs automatically on both 32 and 64 bit Windows 7. 360 degree rotatable about the horizontal. About 30 degree rotatable about the vertical. Autofocus can get annoying because it can be slow sometimes. Like the long usb cable, about 1.7m. Can price match to about $55.
I purchased 8 of these web cams for our offices in order to be able to host video conferences. The video these cameras produce look nice. The microphone works well. The camera also works well with Skype. Just go in and change the audio and video settings to point to the camera. The auto-focus should be disabled (as other users have pointed out), but other than that, it's a good purchase.
I make a lot of videos but was only using my laptop's webcam. Moving your laptop arround to get the right angle isn't that great and I bought a monitor so my laptop stays closed (so no more cam) so I bought this one thinking it would be a good thing. When I received it, it was just a random box with the camera in a small bag in it, nothing more, no softwares or manuals ; not even the microsoft's box. I tried it, was pretty good except the autofocus was annoying as hell since the only thing it does is blurring the image. Thinking it would be a good thing, I updated the firmware and the software -> Worse thing to do. Now the camera works at like 15 fps only. But, I must say the image looks good and the sound quality really surpised me. But, I did a video afterwards of an unboxing and the microphone stopped working after like 1-2 minutes and restarted maybe 4 minutes after and my voice was distorted. It was in a 8 minutes video. I didn't really check it out after, but really what I can say is plug it, restart your computer and leave it like that. My laptop's camera gets like 5 fps in its software but with sony vegas it works with 30 fps. I tried with this camera and any software looks pretty much the same -> the firmware screw it I think. I'll give it 4 stars, but after updating I would give 2 stars.
Autofocus - what junk. It will sit there with the entire frame in focus, then randomly decide to try and auto-focus, making the picture blurry and unuseable for 3-4 seconds. The only time I've ever seen the camera not in focus, is when it's doing the autofocus, which it likes to do rather frequently.
Great webcam, much smalled than I expected but still puts out great quality video. I have no complaints about the product and can use it in low light settings without much of a drop in quality, very happy.
Ive had this webcam for 2 months now and I still love it. I use it mainly for skype and my friends love the quality of the video the webcam presents. The webcam has a built in mic and the quality of the sound is "like as if I'm right there beside my friends talking into their ears." The webcam runs smoothly throughout the hours of chatting.
