LUX­URY WE­B­CAM

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

Cam­era qual­ity is im­prov­ing across the board, not just in DSLRs or point-and-shoots. At a time when even reg­u­lar smart­phones have 8MP cam­eras, Log­itech’s top of the line we­b­cam boasts a Full HD video record­ing and 15 MP photo qual­ity. The Log­itech c920 is a plug-and-play HD we­b­cam. But re­mem­ber with a hi-def we­b­cam you will need a good broad­band con­nec­tion to get your im­ages to the other side. With the c920 you will see the dif­fer­ence in video qual­ity right away. The pic­tures are sharp and don’t have the VGA feel that we are so used to with we­b­cams. The other stand­out fea­ture is the aut­o­fo­cus, as the sub­ject is al­ways in fo­cus within the frame. Even in low light the lag is in­signif­i­cant, that must the Carl Zeiss lens at work.

How­ever, we were not too im­pressed with the 15MP photo cap­ture as the pic­tures were saved in 640x480p res­o­lu­tion at a file size of around 60kb. We could not find any­thing in the set­tings to im­prove this. With video and au­dio, you have the op­tion of im­prov­ing qual­ity.
