Worked fine, although tv was not supported,
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.
+ 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...
- 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!
