Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000

» Discuss this article (0)


For the testing portion of this review I wanted to capture the every day use aspect of it. The three categories I tested were image capturing, video calls, and the visual effects that the device makes available during use. I will also test the use of the cam with external web sites such as YouTube, to see how well the webcam does.


Testing Setup:

  • Sony Viao VGN-N250E/B
  • Intel Core Duo 188GHz
  • 1536MB DDR2 Ram
  • 120GB Hard Drive
  • DVD-R/W Drive


Image Capture:

To test the image capturing ability, I took pictures in all of the resolutions that the camera offers. The resolutions are in order 1.3 megapixels, 2 megapixels, 3 megapixels, 4 megapixels, and 8 megapixels.




Video Calls:

I tested the video calls feature by having a conference call using Yahoo messenger. Yahoo easily picked up the webcam and started it for use. I connected my associate who was using the Logitech QuickCam 5000 so that there was true two-way communication. The video was clear on his end of me and the sound was exactly matched, not delayed like I have seen in some webcams. The face tracking adjusted, following me if I moved closer or away and was crisp enough for him to see text I was writing on a project board behind where I was sitting.

Visual Effects:

The software also includes the visual effects for a little fun. Visual effects transposes an avatar, which is an animated character, over your face or places add-ons, like wigs and other fun stuff, over your face to give your pics and videos a humorous side. This was fun to play around and mess with. The additions will track your movement and facial expressions.
