The Geekcam page: I think I need a new webcam

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 6-Jul-2006 16:57

I have just (well a few weeks ago) put up the Geekcam on-line. Nothing much there: it just sits on top of my LCD, looking at me. Mainly for use during the Geekzone Weekly On-line chats, but the camera is taking pictures all day (because it just happens that I work full time on Geekzone and in front of this desktop).

I know, the quality seems very low - alas the webcam is a cheap model, and probably not much better, technologically speaking, than the one I bought back in 1997.

I think it's time to upgrade and get a nice 1.3megapixel webcam. I wanted to try one of these Logitech Fusion models. The bad thing is that the only PR contact for Logitech I ever managed to get hold of is some grumpy person in Australia who can't be bothered replying to e-mails (and when he did it was to say something like bugger off). But that was a couple of years ago, and things change, who knows?

If you know of a good webcam, true 1.3 megapixels post in the comments and I will have a look at it.
