The QuickCam Toolbar is loaded with a lot of features. The primary use is to take images and video. However, when I first started it up, it noticed that the lighting in my room was strange and asked if I would like to enable an enhancement called "RightLight". I went ahead and enabled it because, well, it looked a lot better than with it disabled. In the preview pane itself, a drop down list of image size (or quality) is present. The selector allows you to select video from VGA to HD quality and images from 1.3 Megapixel to 8 Megapixel. The size of the preview image does its best to match the real resolution that is selected by the user, allowing you to get a better sense of what the final picture or video might look like.
The pull-out bars next to the 'take image' buttons, allow you to fine-tune the settings to help you get the exact result you want.
The options pane further allows you to control how every little piece of the webcam operates, right down to the operation of the LED on the front of it (that lets you know it's on).
Working with other programs:
The QuickCam Pro also has the option to interface with many other programs. A simple pull-out menu in the QuickCam Toolbar allows you to select from several different programs that you can use for video conferencing. There is also the option for you to upload video to online auctions, YouTube and more. Even if another program is needed for the webcam to be able to interface right, the QuickCam Toolbar will give you the download link, making life simple.
