Telecommunications have been evolving at a very fast pace since the invention of the telegraph. A huge shock was when Bell gave the little beeps that we call morse code, a voice. Now another shock has quietly arrived. Logitech and other manufactures are giving that voice a face. Webcams aren't anything new, but they are beginning to get a lot better. The Logitech QuickCam Pro for Notebooks is no such exception. With the ability to take pictures up to eight megapixels and the ability to capture video at thirty frames per second, the QuickCam definitely gives its self some high expectations. Will it be able to meet these expectations in practice?
Logitech was founded in 1981 and has since become one of the leaders in computer peripheral manufacturing. Known mostly for its mice and keyboards, it has also expanded into the areas of headphones, headsets, webcams and media center remotes.
The QuickCam Pro's packaging stays true to the standard Logitech coloring of green and a clear case that shows the product. The front of the box really doesn't show much off besides the webcam itself. The back, right side and bottom, list all the details of the product. The box lists things like the thirty frames per second and eight megapixel capacity. There is also an icon indicating the webcam's capacity to work with several popular video conferencing tools, including MSN Messenger, AIM and Yahoo! Messenger.
