Logitech 720p Webcam C510

Gone are the days when you would simply settle for grainy, low resolution web cameras. In the dawn of modern day communication, you want nothing short of the best especially when it comes to video chatting online. And yet, as with many other things, better quality usually entails more money; but not so with Logitech HD Webcam C510. At $59.99, C510 is definitely a smart-buy.

 

720p HD-Quality

 

C510 may not be able to compete against the very expensive 1080p HD cameras in the market, but with 720p, it can already give you that ultimate user experience. The webcam can take extremely clear images — be it for your own good or not, it can capture every blemish and every facial line. It can also produce even toned and crisp videos even in moderately dim rooms.

 

However, it should be noted that a HD camera works best when used with a HD monitor. You also need to consider the hardware requirements C510 to have a true HD video calling experience (i.e. 2GD RAM along with the appropriate processor). Images captured by C510 remain to be impressive even if you are not using a HD monitor. Images are taken at 8 megapixels in maximum, pretty much like some point-and-shoot digital cameras these days.

 

Software and Sound Quality

 

C510 is a plug-and-play webcam. This means that you don’t have to install any software or application to start using the camera. However, it does come with an optional software utility which installs in a matter of minutes. The software allows you to upload to various social-networking sites with just one click. The software has some special features too. You can use it to add various effects to your videos and pictures. This feature is very popular among Facebook and YouTube users.

 

The webcam also comes with a high-quality, noise-suppressant microphone. The microphone can capture static-free sound which makes it perfect for Skype, FB Chat and some other instant messengers. If you don’t use these IMs, you can also try the video-calling program that comes with the Logitech software.

 

But if you are looking for a cheaper alternative, you may try the HDE USB webcam. It costs less than $10 each.
