HP steps it up with the DELUXE WEBCAM (KQ246AA )

Comments about HP Deluxe Webcam:

The HP Deluxe Webcam features a 1.3 Megapixel Sensor and takes 8 (software interpolated) Megapixel photos. It can take 640 x 480 (VGA) live video at 30 frames per second. It connects to your computer via USB and has an integrated wide angle microphone. It is compatible with the major flavors of windows (XP, Vista, 7) and the included drivers worked fine is both 32 bit and 64 bit versions of those systems. Included you also receive ArcSoft Webcam Companion 3 and Magic-I Visual Effects 2 software. The camera includes the standard 1 year limited warranty common in peripherals. Setup was a breeze and the camera worked fine in Skype, Google Chat, Windows live Messenger, iChat and Yahoo Messenger. The face tracking feature works well, but stumbles if there are multiple subjects. What I was most impressed with was the light correction feature. The problem with webcams is usually that with such a small sensor, very little light actually goes in and video quality suffers unless the area is well lit. Well this camera does an excellent job of compensating for lower light and the video looks much better as a result. In this price range it's hard to get better features and software.

        Comments about HP Deluxe Webcam:

        I bought my Hewlett Packard Deluxe WebCam almost a year ago.  I used to have one of those round ball webcams from a company I won't name, and I think it had all of 0.3 megapixels.  This HP deluxe webcam has up to eight megapixels, which makes for a really nice image.  It's almost embarassing, but I can actually see a tiny pimple on my nose with this webcam.  The setup was super easy, taking about fifteen minutes of my time, and then I was in business.  The manual is easy to read, even for the most technologically challenged.  It has quick launch buttons that save valuable time, and also is compatible with most instant messaging services.  The design is really streamlined, so the webcam itself is non-intrusive.  Everything you could possibly need is inside the box, so Hewlett Packard made it easy for quick start, which is one of those things I really appreciate.  It has 5x digital zoom, face tracking, VideoImpression software, and a fantastic microphone.  If you are looking for a great webcam at a decent price, the HP Deluxe Webcam is the one to buy!
