Product Description

Product Description

Logitech's QuickCam Zoom is a fun and trendy webcam that offers true 640 x 480 high-resolution VGA videos and still images. Change the way you have been communicating: e-mail photos and videos, add video to your Yahoo! Messenger, even add live video to MS

Manufacturer's Description

Bring your instant messages--and your drab desktop--to life with the stunning silver QuickCam Zoom. With just one click, you can add live video to your instant messages and share a smile with anyone, anywhere in the world. The QuickCam Zoom delivers true VGA (640x480) photos and videos and, as its name suggests, includes digital zoom software, which offers the option to pan, tilt and zoom up to three times the normal viewing size. Logitech face-tracking software, included in the package, takes digital zoom to a new level by automatically enabling the camera to pan, tilt and zoom-in on a person's face, keeping it centered during a video instant messaging session or when recording a video e-mail. QuickCam Zoom includes a built-in microphone, making it easy for people to add audio while they are instant messaging or creating video clips.

Logitech's new QuickCam 8.0 software is bundled with QuickCam Zoom. This software offers an easy-to-use interface, and includes an intuitive feature layout for first time WebCam users. The camera works with Mac OS X and Windows 98 or higher. And with its new titanium finish, QuickCam Zoom brings a fresh new look to the desktop.

After trying out a couple of Creative NX cams I tried the Logitech QuickCam Zoom. I was really surprised at what you get for around 40 quid.
PROS:
Excellent image quality - the focus range is wide and the image is sharp and clear. The lens assembly on this cam has been well designed, the thread used for the focus is fine and has no slop whatsoever - it won't suddenly shift annoyingly if the cam gets a knock. The image is really clean too - sharp right to the edges with no colour fringing (chromatic abberitions) on contrasting objects anywhere in the frame - whether focused or not.
Built in microphone with software gain control is handy.
Software allows image adjustment (zoom, brightness, contrast, white balance, frame rate, gain) even whilst the cam is capturing live video within an application.
Cool chrome visor that flips down to cover the lens to ensure privacy. The visor can be easily removed.
Shutter button on the top of the cam lets you use it as a digital camera.
The base can be easily taken off, and surprisingly the threaded hole under the ball part of the cam is exactly the same size as a standard camera tripod mount - this cam can be mounted on a tripod!
CONS:
The image seems to have a slight 'un-sharp' filter applied to it. Although it is not imposing it would have been nice to have the option of disabling it.
Sometimes it can take up to 5 seconds for the cam to start or for the image adjustment setting controls to appear.
The shutter button only seems to work within the QuickCapture utility to take photos - I expected it to fire up the software automatically when the button was pressed when no applications were running.
Conclusion: If I lost or broke this cam I'd have no hesitation in buying another one. 5 star *****

The Logitech QuickCam Zoom is yet another quality product from Logitech, I installed this product on a Windows XP system and after having problems with other makes conflicting with my TV card I was a little concerned the same would happen again.
The smart looking webcam comes with a handy 2.1 metre USB lead which made locating it much easier than other models I've had in the past. The whole installation process was very easy with minimal prompts however it's maybe worth noting you are required to install the software and drivers first. After restarting the computer I was prompted to connect the webcam to the pc, automatically Windows detected it and completed the installation.
Setting up the software settings was also made very easy being able to adjust colour, white balance and many other settings along with being able to enable or disable the smart "face tracking feature", the face tracking is a very smart idea although different at first and strange to see it accurately follow your face as you move and automatically zooming in and out to ensure your face is correctly in frame.
The picture quality is good for a webcam although sorry its not good enough for photo's other than fun quick snaps, the type you take, show once and then delete, located on the front of the lens is a white ring which allows you to manually adjust the focus and a cover which slides over the lens to protect it and to allow for those moments of privacy.
The built in microphone is very powerful and produces very clear results, in fact it is that good I've removed my head set and sole rely on the Logitech QuickCam Zoom's built in microphone, however I must point out unless you are in a completely sound proof room it wouldn't be suitable for use with talk n type programs such as Via Voice etc as it picks up everything in the room very clearly.
All in all this is a very clever good looking webcam at a very sensible price and one to go for.

Having read the great reviews on this webcam I chose it to complement my new computer running Windows XP. I followed the installation instructions to the letter i.e. install software first and wait for the prompt before connecting the camera to the USB port. Despite this the setup wizard could not find the drivers. I tried the browse option and showed Windows where the required files were - it then came up with the message that XP did not recognise the "logo" and did not recommend proceeding with the installation. I uninstalled the software and tried connecting the camera first and then clicking the "have disk" route. Same problems.
Before giving up and boxing the camera up for a return I visited the Logitech website ([...]) and found the drivers specific to Windows XP. It offered a version 8.2 (the camera came with Version 8). This worked perfectly!
So...the camera is now worthy of 5 stars (it does everything as promised), but it has to lose a star for the software (perhaps my setup disk was faulty!)

The Logi' Zoom is the first web camera I have used so my review is of the experience not of comparison. I chose it as it seemed to be the start of the good quality end of the market where after, the prices soar.
Firstly it looks great, and has an excellent grade USB cable so I was confident that I bought a quality camera. The software took a while to install, but was simple enough on XP. However, it didn't work on my older, troubled, PC with win 98.
Using the camera has been fantastic; I couldn't expect anything better even from the higher end products. Best use of its capabilities is seen in Yahoo 'super mode' rather than MSN messenger for which it is integrated with. And the microphone is also as much joy, if you want to be seen conversing naturally, but if you want to use chat only a £10 headset is much more practical. There is a little problem with echo, which can be eliminated with headphones but then you have to sit close to the whirring PC and because the mic is so good it picks this up. I reguarly plug and unplug it from the PC and yet it is ready to use instantly as the messengers allow. I haven't used the quick capture or the video recorder but it's a good feature to have at hand.
The only downside is that the piece is very flimsy. It quite easily unwinds from the base to become jiggily loose and tilted and the lens cover is always being pulled off by curious friends. But then again, that makes me glad that I didn't go for an even cheaper one.

In all, it's the start of the 'good' cameras and I don't see need to spend more for home use only. Don't be dissuaded by the ~£40 price - you will not be dissapointed. But deffinately consider it's equivalents.
