Genius Cam Mouse review

on Monday, October 14th, 2013

I like working in a mixed-media environment with my computer, paper notebook, and mobile phone all at my desk.  Sometimes I’ll jot down notes in my notebook with a pen, since it’s easier to do, as I take a phone call, or when someone is speaking.  After I write down a bunch of notes, sometimesRead More…

Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 Review

on Friday, April 8th, 2011

Logitech HD Pro Webcam. Whoopity doo.  Honestly, I hate to sound negative but I just do not get what the big deal is.   I get HD.  I do.  Maybe not in the same obsession as anyone with a television or cellphone or video camera.  That group is a whole different breed.   I’ve seenRead More…

Tandberg PrecisionHD USB Video Camera Review

on Friday, March 26th, 2010

The Tandberg PrecisionHD USB Video Camera is a high quality camera that captures 30 frame per second full 720p (1280×720) video and mono audio. This would be the ideal camera for corporate desktop video conferencing, or for casual or mobile video podcasting. It’s large size and decent heft make it less appealing for the businessRead More…

Wirelessly stream video with a Vue Personal Video Network

Posted in: Home, Kitchen, News

I enjoyed reviewing the Wi-Spi EX30 security camera from Brickhouse Security, it is missing one important feature – remote viewing from the internet. I think I may have found a better solution for those times when I would like to see what’s going on in my home while I’m at work. It’s the Avaak VueRead More…

Microsoft LifeCam Cinema – a Webcam with True 720p HD

By: Krista Crowell
on Monday, October 5th, 2009

I’ve had the pleasure of getting to play with the new Microsoft LifeCam Cinema and I am impressed.  I haven’t tried any other HD webcams but compared to my previous webcam, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema is far superior.  To make this review simple, I compared the QuickCam Pro 9000 that I purchased in March 2009Read More…

Who had the first 720p webcam? Microsoft LifeCam or Hercules DualPix?

on Thursday, August 27th, 2009
Posted in: Laptops and Gear

We’ve got another webcam claiming to be the first one with 720p capability. Late last week it was Microsoft’s LifeCam. Today it’s the Hercules DualPix. The DualPix comes in at a better price point ($59.99) than the LifeCam ($80.00) and appears to be more adjustable with two axes that can rotate for capturing pictures.

Scare people even more – 3D web cam

on Sunday, August 9th, 2009

I’m not a big fan of web cams and don’t use them very often. I like the fact that I can roll out of bed with crazy hair and mismatched pajamas, chat with people and they can’t see me. If I weren’t so self-conscience, I might be tempted to check out what might be theRead More…

Rovio Mobile Webcam Review

By: Sean Carroll
on Tuesday, November 4th, 2008
Posted in: Geek Toys, Wireless

I have a dog at home and I have a mounted webcam to check in on him. This system works fairly well but occasionally he isn’t on the couch in the living room and it is at times like that, that I’ve wished for a camera that I could pan and tilt. I was really excited when I heard about Rovio, I thought it would be the perfect solution! Forget pan and tilt, I could actually go find my dog and check in on him where ever he might be.

Brando IP Security Camera Review

on Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

I’m a big fan of webcams. Once I figured out how to broadcast a webcam stream on a webpage,
I started broadcasting from work so that my mom and friends could see me. One idea I had related to this was setting up a little home
surveillance system with my two Logitech QuickCams and my eeePC 701′s integrated webcam. I’m mostly just curious to see what my cats do
all day while I’m at work. While setting up such a stream is pretty easy, it requires running a computer 24/7 and can be a little power and
bandwidth hungry.

IPEVO PoV Webcam Review

on Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

I’m a bit of a webcam aficionado. I have several – my Dell XPS M1330 and eeePC 701 have integrated webcams, plus I have an older
VGA Logitech QuickCam and a new 2MP QuickCam Orbit AF. Video chatting can be a lot of fun when your friends live out-of-state – or on the
other side of the globe. Julie sent over a couple webcams for me to review – the
IPEVO PoV and a networked security camera from Brando.

This is a story that does not end well…

A webcam with a telescope lens attachment! How could I, an aficionado of webcams, resist the opportunity to try one of these?

I knew I was in for an adventure with a non-brand product with the intriguing name on the box of “Digital Product PC Camera”.
