4.0 out of 5 stars Worked fine, although tv was not supported, 22 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Logitech Skype Camera for Panasonic TV (Accessory)
Well, my parents got a european Panasonic, 2011 model, TX-L42E30 connected to a broadband connection. Thought I could buy them the Panasonic skype camera, but cost was rather high/prohibitive. Then I stumbled upon this camera, which also featured Carl Zeiss lens. Bad news: it was supposed to work only on specific Panasonic TVs, that is:
* only US and Japanese models and
* all made 2012 and later

However there was an Amazon customer review of this item, suggesting that one could use it succesfully on European and/or 2011 models. Firmware of my folks TX-L42E30 telly was the latest at the time (1.323). So I decided to try my luck and buy this thing.

It was success at first try! This camera worked, although Logitech did not have this Panasonic in the supported models list.

Pros:
-----
+ Quality of the video *sent* to the others was outstanding.
+ Setup and usage is also extremely simple: once configured, calls made to the tv can be automatically answered. Big deal if the folks have trouble with all this techno wizardry...

Cons:
-----
- There's one or two things though, that might be related to the fact that this is an unsupported model. The camera is motorized and allows zoom and pan/tilt to be controlled via software. Although there were controls in the embedded Skype software of the panasonic, pan/tilt did not work. Zoom did work though.

All in all: at around 90 euros, I consider this to be definitely a good purchase, very satisfied here!
