Not a bad little camera.
It is a bit fuzzier than the Logitech cameras with the Carl Zeiss Optics, but I guess they have to save on something to get the price down.
I was pleasantly surprised at how well this camera does in very low light. I did have to go into the manual settings and push the exposure, brightness and contrast but the result is one of the best I have seen in recent cameras. The camera doesn't seem to be able to do as well in low light when using auto settings though.
The mounting system is interesting and works well. It consists of 3 hinged platforms which will fold up into a rather convenient portable bundle and in the process protects the lens. It fits well on all my monitors and notebooks. The camera head itself rotates a full 360 degrees and tilts up and down a full 90 degrees. Overall the mount is one of the most flexible I have seen except for lack of a tripod mount as some of the more expensive Logitech cameras have.
The only real problem I have had was on my main computer and has been happening with all Logitech cameras. If I shut down while a Logitech camera is operating I get a system blue screen crash. I suspect this has something to do with some problem with my particular system and the Windows USB Video Class drivers.
A good camera for the price range, and recommended for those who don't want to spend the money for the higher cost cameras.
