Basic webcam, okay picture quality for video chat.
Jul 14, 2010
This is a basic webcam, with ok picture quality, not much better than the webcam on most newer laptops. This is meant to sit on top of the flat screen monitor or laptop screen. The performance in low-light is okay, nothing too great. This webcam is adjusted for artificial light as that is the most common scenario. The colors in bright natural light appear a little washed away but very few people use webcam in natural light. If using it on a laptop the attached cord pulls it backward a little so you'll have to adjust it so it does not fall off.
If you're looking for better picture quality go for a webcam with higher MPs.
