    Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R10IN7SJYC49HC Installation was a breeze, it took less than 3 minutes to install. I am using it in a Windows 7 OS environment. Unlike most webcam installations, this one was up and running in no time. It has a user-friendly and a very easy to navigate interface/menu. High Definition is pretty much the norm for resolution qualities now-a-days. The Logitech C910 I consider is the “high-end” webcam for the average user. The webacm sits on my 23 widescreen monitor, it balances perfectly on my monitor even though it does not have a clip. However, this might not work so well with laptops.

    It takes crystal clear snapshots using 10 mega pixels (software enhanced), not even my digital camera is that high in mega pixels. The webcam is not as high quality using it on video chat (HD 720p), but it still beats the other webcam I was using before. I really don’t think I will be using the video recorder feature often since I really can’t see a need to record myself sitting in front of my desktop but I decided to try it anyways. When I tested the picture quality recording a video, it was clear (HD 1080p) and the sound was superb. Check out the attached video review for yourself (please disregard my Spanglish accent). The videos are saved in .wmv format. The widescreen lens allows a wider camera view compared to the average “square box” – so much more fits in the camera’s view. The LightRight 2 technology automatically adjust the lighting conditions in the camera’s view, no need to be fusing around with the settings.

    It offers a 60-day trial of Logitech FastAccess facial recognition software. You can subscribe for this service that offers facial recognition to access Internet banking, email, etc without the hassle of remembering all your passwords. It can also lock your system to avoid use from unauthorized individuals.

    Another awesome fun feature is the Logitech Video Effects. You can use Avatars that will follow your movements and mimic your speech as you chat with your friends. Add face accessories and masks to snapshots or video chat. Distort you image by adding visual video affects like stretching your face, big buggy eyes or distorting the color. There are tons of features to choose from and you can even download additional avatars and accessories direct from Logitech free of charge.

    The webcam even offers a motion sensor feature that you can set up to record with a date and time stamp when there is any movement in front of the camera.

    Overall great webcam. Major improvement to the Logitech QuickCam Pro I was using before. The Logitech Quickcam Pro offered most of the features listed on the C910, but now I have HD widescreen quality with vivid colors and superb resolution.

    Review update– 9/11/10

    During my original review, I rated the camera with regards to Skype use. I’m elated to learn from a Logitech forum post that this camera will be supporting Skype HQ with release of Skype 5.0! Because of this great news, I have revamped my review to better reflect the camera’s use with 5.0, which I have been testing in beta.

    The positives:

    Camera & software install is easy

    Camera Size is small

    Design is attractive

    Logitech HD video chat software is a nice option for those who aren’t big into Skype or other big name branded chat programs.

    It does great in low light situations and with dual mics seems overall very capable of capturing small sounds

    Even in HD, this cam doesn’t seem to drag on my system resources and make the PC slow like the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema

    Negatives:

    Not yet Skype HQ compliant, but will be soon with the release of Skype 5.0!

    The USB cable is about 1 foot shorter than the cable on the Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 / QuickCam Pro 9000

    The clip doesn’t fit on my monitor as well as the Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 / QuickCam Pro 9000 or the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema

    Now that this cam is slated to be Skype HQ compliant, I can say this is my preferred & recommended camera. Once I get the full release of 5.0 (non-beta) I’ll update the review with my thoughts.

  3. Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R2HTUT0F5YB81N We tried out the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 and we love it. The picture quality is not quite as good as that of our Nikon video camera, and the photo editing software is not as good as the standalone program we bought — but that’s not a flaw in the camera or its software. That’s comparing it with different kinds of products.

    For video chat, it’s perfect, and as you can see from this video review, it does a very good job of creating videos. Check out an example of an edited video here: [...] We did this entirely with the webcam, edited it and uploaded it to YouTube, and embedded it into our web page. We never had to look at the documentation or help, either — it was incredibly easy. It took just about an hour, counting opening the boxes, installing the cameras, deciding on a topic for our experimental video, shooting it, editing it, and getting it onto the web page.

    In later uses, we’ve found that some situations require an additional microphone, and we’ve gone back to iMovie for most of our editing, but we’re using the camera regularly for video filming and for video chat.

    I can say with confidence that it is possible to use this camera right out of the box with no additional hardware, software, or training, and to get good results.

  4. Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/RKDZA64P77E47 The primary point is that this camera is not Skype certified, but performs better than a skype certified camera. This camera DOES DO 720p in Skype at 30FPS as opposed to the flagship certified Skype camera which does only 22FPS. This camera has great video and audio for a webcam. It does 720p in skype, Windows Live Messenger BETA, and Logitech Vid HD. I was reluctant to buy another HD webcam after the disappointment of both the Microsoft Lifecam Cinema HD and the FaceVsion Touchcam N1. But this is the first HD camera that feels like it.

    I have been using the previous model Quickcam Pro 9000 for around a year, and I decided to pass that on to someone and buy this new model for myself.

    The quality of the picture, sound, and the Logitech software is simply excellent (I use Windows 7). The Camera definition/detail is simply stunning, even in low light. I love the performance.

    So, why only 4 stars you may think?

    Well, when i first saw the C910, I liked the fact that is was considerably more compact than the Pro 9000. I travel quite a lot, and liked the idea of slightly smaller cam. I was disappointed there is no carrying case to protect the cam when in my computer bag with my ac adaptor, phone-charger and other accessories.

    However, one drawback I have discovered is that the smaller size and slightly differences in shape of the “foot” means that the C910 is a little “wobbly” when perched on top of the screen of my laptop, whereas the Pro-9000 was absolutely solid. The “grip” system of the C910 is based on the same principle as that of the Pro9000, ie it is a friction grip, and not a “spring clip” or an actual clamp. I think if the foot was about a cm longer (still smaller than the Pro 9000) it might be more stable, or possibly the Pro9000 is more stable simply because it is heavier. This is not a problem on my desktop monitor, or if my laptop is on the desk, rather then actually on my lap. On my lap, or on a train, the cam can wobble a bit with any movement of the laptop.

    To summarise:

    PRO:

    -superb cam performance, both sound and picture

    - simple and robust software installation, no conflicts or problems found with Windows 7.

    - reasonably compact size

    CON:

    - does not sit stable on laptop display

    - no carrying case to protect it in my computer bag.

    However, I still highly recommend Logitech, and this model in particular. I like it.

    POSTSCRIPT: I have improved the stability of the cam on my laptop, I have taken a blob of blu-tak about 1/2 the size of a golf-ball and added it just above the hinge simply to increase the weight of the cam. It is now perfectly stable while i use the laptop and cam on my lap. I did not want to use the blutack to “stick” the cam to the laptop. I will figure out a more aesthetically pleasing solution for the long-term now I know a slight increase in weight will do what I want.

    UPDATE 9/2010: I replaced the blu-tak with a couple of balance weights (self adhesive) from a ceiling fan kit, and wheel-balancing kit – simply because they were what I had to hand. I have uploaded photos to the product page.

    I put 2x5gm weights just above the hinge-joint. Then later added a single 5gm weight at the very end of the arm. If I was doing it again from scratch, i would install a 5gm weight at the end of the arm – and check if it was enough. Then perhaps add a 5gm weight just above the hinge joint. My feeling is that the lower of the two weights contributes the most. I bought a strip of wheel balance weights off ebay-UK for about £3.00 ($4.50), so the modification is not too onerous or expensive.
