Logitech QuickCam Fusion

£83 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Logitech

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

It doesn't matter how hard you try; when you sit down in front of a webcam you end up looking like you’ve been dragged through a hedge 50 or 60 times on a very hot day. Well, Logitech is doing its best to remedy this situation with the QuickCam Fusion.

It doesn't matter how hard you try; when you sit down in front of a webcam you end up looking like you've been dragged through a hedge 50 or 60 times on a very hot day. Well, Logitech is doing its best to remedy this situation with the QuickCam Fusion.

A petite 1.6in of greatness, Logitech's flagship webcam and its RightLight technology set a new benchmark for performance. While the cost may be prohibitive for most, if you need a high-quality webcam, it's worth paying out the extra cash. Well built and with a great bundle in the box, the QuickCam is a top buy.

This beautifully designed piece of hardware delivers 1.3Mp (megapixel) images, complemented by amazing video quality and echo-free audio. You can bump the quality up to 4Mp with software enhancements, although we recommend staying in the native hardware resolution for the best results. At the touch of a button the lighting is perfect and you can use the flexible base to angle it in any position you like.The built-in microphone with Logitech's own RightSound technology means you don't even need to wear a headset, although the webcam does come with a set of headphones and a microphone. What's more, there's an ultra-wide view field of 78 degrees – excellent for viewing everything in the room.

Logitech has bundled the Video Effects 3D software package, which creates animated avatars that imitate your facial expressions or head movements, or 2D face accessories.

The QuickCam also has some excellent security features, and Intelligent Face Tracking, which keeps your face in the centre of the frame.

    Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000

    The Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 is, quite simply, an excellent webcam.

  • Creative Live Cam Voice

    Creative Live Cam Voice

    Despite its lauded audio options and Adaptive Array Microphone technology, we can't help thinking that the Creative Live doesn't represent much of a leap forward.

    The FaceVsion TouchCam N1 is not just for casual video chatting - at £89, this camera means business, too. In our hands-on testing, this high-definition webcam delivered excellent sound capture and solid picture quality.
