Latest Logitech Webcams Offer Hi-Res Images
- Built-in autofocus
- Can enable HD 720p Skype calls
- One-click upload to Facebook
Logitech latest webcams both have fold-and-go design, coupled with autofocus capabilities, and a 360-degree swivel rotation, allowing for easy video calling and HD recording anytime, anywhere, says Logitech.
Both the Logitech HD Webcam C615 and C525’s built-in autofocus, is claimed to help ensure picture quality will be sharp – even in extreme close-ups – and a built-in mic that helps make sure background noise won’t spoil video calls. With Logitech’s newest webcams, users can also capture software-enhanced 8-megapixel images.
Both new webcams are capable of enabling video calls in HD 720p on Skype, Logitech Vid HD and Windows Live Messenger, as well as video calls on Yahoo! Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) and other popular instant messaging applications. Logitech HD Webcam C615 also works with FaceTime for Mac and iChat. Both webcams includes one-click HD video and photo upload to Facebook, as well as HD video upload to YouTube and Twitter, so you can easily share video recordings.
The C615 webcam comes with a three-foot USB cable with an extender, and has a tripod-ready design so you can capture video from any vantage point.
With the Logitech HD Webcam C525 users can log in to their computer using a 60-day, free trial of Fast Access face-recognition software. Plug in the C525 and download the software to the PC. The webcam will take a scan of the users face and set the image as the password, using the user’s face to protect access to sites and lock the computer when away. Video effects can be used to spice up calls, including neon splashes, fish-eye distortions and a Mask Maker. Logitech has also teamed up with Magix to offer free Magix Photo Manager 9 and Magix Video Easy software for seamless editing.
