Logitech Webcam Review & Giveaway

Thanks to modern technology, there is a new wave of teaching and learning taking place in classrooms all over the world. Logitech webcams offer children of all ages the opportunity to explore new ideas and concepts through a whole new light. Older age kids who take online college courses can now talk to their professors. Middle school and high school kids can discuss their assignments with their classmates. Logitech Webcams make it easy for students to work on group projects without trying to find the time to meet.

The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 stands out against the growing crowd of webcams. Now you can accomplish more with breathtaking Full HD 1080p video recording. The HD Pro Webcam is easy to install, easy to use and captures crisp, vivid, crystal clear videos and photos. 

The C910 is long, slim, and rectangular. It’s sleek design is just under an inch deep. It mounts snugly on the top or side of your monitor, and remains securely in place with the attached adjustable arm.

If you don’t have video software installed, you would download the Vid HD which is included on a CD. This part of the setup only took a few minutes and once it was complete, I was ready to being using.

This webcam records in full HD 1080p and takes 10-megapixel still photos with a state of the art Carl Zeiss optics lens. The resolution can be adjusted down from 1080p to 360p. It features an autofocus lens, a dual built-in microphone for optimal video chatting, premium automatic light correction, plus more!

logitech_webcamSince I am a beginner when it comes to webcams, I chose to use automatic settings. This was very quick and simple. Auto-focus was turned on and all I needed to do was press the button to record video, take a picture, or make a call.  Advanced users may prefer to manually control the settings such as Follow My Face, Right Light, Right Sound, and Auto-Focus. Additionally, anyone can modify the advanced settings which include Exposure, Gain, Brightness, Contrast, Color Intensity, and Anti-Flicker.

The HD Pro Camera has excellent sound quality. The dual microphones picked up my  voice perfectly and everyone I have talked to via video chat says they can hear me as clear as if I was standing in the same room as them.

With the press of a button, you can easily zoom in or zoom out, and pan in any direction which are convenient for focusing on another person or object. After you’ve recorded a video or taken a photo, you can conveniently upload your video to YouTube and Facebook. The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 included Magix software which allow you to edit your photos and videos before uploading.

I cannot tell you how much I have been enjoying this webcam. The only improvement I would suggest is extending the cord length. It’s generous at 5-foot, but it is a rather tight fit with the way my computer and desk are set up. Other than that, this is the perfect webcam - the quality is superb, the price is right and it has simplified my life in so many ways!
