Customer Reviews of Logitech QuickCam Orbit AF Webcam
Easy Setup and Clear, Crisp Photos and Videos6/3/2013
Great webcam. Easy setup and great picture.
Worked very well1/9/2013
Downloading the software was very easy, the web site was able to determine which software version was right for the software and hardware I was installing it on. Connection was almost immediate after installing software.
Feature Packed, but a little weird7/9/2012
it is indeed a good webcam, but it falls flat with the drivers sometimes - if there is any kind of screw up in the drivers - either initially or later on due to whatever reason - the webcam refuses to work and while this is not specific to this device a little bit of developer attention would be appreciated. All in all one of the best webcams ever, just a bit weird for non tech people to troubleshoot
Great Features, Great Price, Great Cam...Works as5/2/2012
I use this camera to scope out my back yard during the night. Within the included software, you can set the Motion Sensor to capture people, objects or anything else that moves. When the object or person crosses within the field of vision of the camera, it will automatically start recording onto your computer. Now, I suggest using a motion censor light to brighten the area you would like to view because the Auto Bright setting on the camera is just ok. The camera does not see in the dark well if not at all. Now thats my personal use. Obviously you can use this camera to chat with friends, or post videos on youtube. I use this camera for so many different things its amazing!
High-End webcam for a reasonable price5/2/2012
This is a fantastic webcam with a great set of software tools. I use it for conference calls where we share whiteboards and the picture quality is fantastic. Also Skype allows you to do high-def video calls with this camera. Highly recommended with very good price / quality ratio!
Super clear video. Love the way the cam follows my face, I am surprised it did not crack the lens (ha ha).I would recommend the web cam to anyone.
I decided to purchase a webcam, and as long as I was going to get one I figured I might as well get a good one. I had a dinky one many years ago, so old it wouldn't even work with today's operating systems. One feature I knew I wanted the new cam to have is autofocus. This Logitech Orbit delivers a beautiful picture indeed. I've read just about all the previous reviews, the positive and the negative. Yes, the servo that controls the "follow me" movement of the camera isn't perfect, but it's good and I'll learn how to work with it. The manual controls are easy to use anyway and they work fine. The built in microphone is excellent. All the other commenters that said how easy the driver is to install are all correct. Setup was a piece of cake (you do have to disable any security software prior to installation.) For me, the most pleasant surprise was all the little features like avatars etc. They are really fun! In sum, great pictures, great sound, easy install, great extras. I love it! I wish I had enough technical expertise to know how to set the webcam away from the computer, to use like a security cam. I'd appreciate any suggestions.
Good picture, good sound7/8/2011
The hardware and software installed flawlessly and it has been used with Skype and Windows Live Messenger. I am happy with the video and audio quality. The auto exposure works well in dim light. The face following feature prefers to follow bright lights if your face is in shadow so I had to turn if off. Bad lighting also fooled the auto focus once; so for best results make sure you face is lit. The stalk raises the camera for showing more than the underside of your chin. The mic does not cause feedback and ringing when used with speakers so you don't need to use headphones.
Auto focus, auto track, nice software, easy to install, best camera I've ever used.
Great Product and easy to use5/27/2009
I am new to video messaging. This was highly recommended to me from a friend. He was absolutely right. This camera works very well and is plug and play. We just started "Skyping" and what a treat it is with this product! It is wonderfull to see the grandchildren when we talk to them. I will recommend it to all of my friends and family.
The quality is good and the mic sounds great. The face tracking works well.
Absolutely Awsome Product!!!2/28/2009
One of the best products I have ever purchased. The quality of the product is amazing. the quality of the images and even the sound captured by the microphone is amazing. Don't hesitate on this one. Get it!
What I can say this is just "Logitech" and they just proved they are the Best.
Exactly what we needed10/21/2008
We bought a web cam to connect with out of town family using Skype. This works perfect and has features that we love (like the face-tracking) ... so when we move, the camera follows us. Other features like "capture still" or "capture video" work well, but we have no use for them. 5 stars for this one!
My first webcam since 1999, so I don't have any newer gen models to compare with, but I was absolutely stunned with the high definition quality video and stills. The software is pretty cool too with the different effects and animations you can do. Great for kids to play with! As stated before, the face tracking is a little buggy and somewhat slow, but I kind of expected that. Though as I said, I'm not sure what other newer but lower quality cams are like so I don't know if the price vs. quality is there so I give value a 4 rating. Otherwise I have no regrets about my purchase.
Best Webcam, Great Pictures. Love - Love - Love
Overal Great Camera. Very easy to setup. Microphone audio is incredible. Adjustable resolution is terrific. Face tracking works but is a little slow and slightly jerky. Face animations also slightly buggy. However, I don't intend to use either of those features.
Very Nice...Happy with it7/10/2008
The webcam is very clear. The person tracking is Ok. Can improve. Overall, I like it.
Use on Mac OSX6/22/2008
I manage a small software company. Recently we switched to the Mac for our development team of 9 programmers. Because we work from home the iChat video conference function of OSX is an important feature. Only three of the new Macs came with cameras. I had one Orbit from a Windows system that functioned on the Mac without the need of any special drivers. Although the advanced fieatures of this camera are not avialable (Pan & Tilt), the tall stalk that positions the camera at eye level combined with the video & audio quality made this a good choice for the 6 Macs that did not have cameras.
This camera works really well. High resolution video, easy to use software, and excellent built in microphone. The camera was easy to set up -- but go to the Logitech website to download the most current software. I've been very satisfied with every Logitech product I've ever bought. Great quality, performance and support.
Logitech QuickCam Orbit AF - 960-0001115/13/2008
Great Service Great Product Thanks
great camera, great delivery5/13/2008
Buy.com delivered the camera very very quickly. The camera itself is a doddle to set up and works great. Now, assuming that Logitech come through with the rebate everything will be bonzer! ta Norm
continue: note that all those filter/face accessories can only be used with 320x240 or 680x480. maybe its gonna lag for higher resolutions? The 9 inch stance is also very useful. So ppl can see you face to face. Not from the top or bottom. which looks weird. The brightlight technology is also very clever. even in a dark room, you can see yourself clearly. This thing runs very smooth. Easy to upload videos to Youtube due to the image size. For 2mins of video capturing under 680x480 only came out to be 10mb. OH! it also has a built-in microphone. Even better, you can use that mircophone with games, i use it with Call of Duty 4. Easy set up. 1 last thing is that.. you can set it to 'face-detection-mode' which means while the camera is on. It will follow you face. oh you can also set it to 'motion capturing mode' so whenever something moves in front of the webcam. It takes a pictures/video by itself. So you can kinda use it as a security camera? lol. Overall I'm very satisfied with this product. And i love how i always pick the 5-10 days shipping & the products come the next day or the day after. BUT THIS! its worth your money(if they have the rebate promotion again haha)
It's a very nice webcam with outstanding picture quality due to the Carl Zeiss optics. Breeze to install. The only real drawback is the software. While it performs basic functions well enough, this camera has a lot of potential that Logitech seems uninterested in exploring. Not providing a way to control pan, tilt and zoom remotely is a major shortcoming.
The best camera for Skype5/11/2008
I owned several Logitech cameras and this one is by far the best from quality and value point of view. The list price high but I was able to buy it recently for $59 after rebate which represents a superb value. It is not worth messing with cheaper ones. Wait for good price and get it! It took me few tries to get it seamlessly incorporated into Skype but after that it is totally problem free
I love it. Best webcam I've ever owned. Face tracking works well. Face overlays are pretty funny. Great resolution.
I love this thing great audio great video great stills.
