Image quality. It’s more than just megapixels.
Seeing the smile on your grandson’s face or the glitter off your daughter’s engagement ring is so much better than a phone call. And a webcam can really make these experiences possible, even when you’re separated by thousands of miles. But getting the right webcam is more than just a matter of finding the one with the most megapixels.
The truth about megapixels
A higher-megapixel sensor doesn’t equal high-quality images on its own, so it’s important not to just look at megapixels and forget about the other aspects of the camera.
The right lens
The lens is what captures the light that gets turned into the image by the sensor. If your lens isn’t good, it doesn’t matter how many megapixels you’ve got. A bad lens is going to give you a bad image.
Ready for your close-up? You’re not only going to need a good lens—you’re going to need a good focusing system. A lot of webcams have either a manual focus option or no focusing system at all. If you get too close, you can end up fuzzy.
What about HD webcams?
When it comes to video calls, the maximum resolution is 640-by-480 pixels, otherwise known as VGA resolution. Today, you can’t make an HD video call on any of the free instant-messaging applications.
Power and connections
Most computers sold today have no problem handling a video call. But if your computer is a little bit older or you’re not using a fast connection, you might run into difficulty. To get good clarity and smoothness, your computer needs to meet the minimum requirements to support a video call.

MAGIX photo organization and video editing software. Easy, smart and free with your Logitech webcam.*
You’ve said good-bye to shoeboxes full of photos and videocassettes. Now all your memories are stored on your computer.
But with thousands of photos and videos, it can sometimes be difficult to find the one you want. And once you’ve found it, you might want to crop a photo to focus on your beautiful baby cousin’s face. Or cut those last few seconds of video where your sister’s perfect wedding cake somehow ends up on the floor.
Using a webcam to record a video of your baby’s first words, a funny clip that you upload to Facebook™ or YouTube™ or a warm message to a loved one can be an art. It’s hard to figure out just when to stop—or start—recording to get the best video.
There are editing programs out there, but they’re often very complicated, taking days to learn and offering lots of features most people will never use.
That’s where MAGIX Video Easy comes in. The name says it all.
This drag-and-drop home video tool makes it easy to cut, edit and combine videos to turn fleeting memories into indelible moments you’ll be able to return to again and again.
The simple, easy-to-use interface makes editing an intuitive process rather than a chemistry project. Step-by-step instructions help you select the parts of your video that you want to include, then add a title and some music—you can even add transitions.
And when your inner auteur is satisfied, it’s easy to upload your newest creation to YouTube. Next stop: Sunset Boulevard. Or Grandma’s living room.
Digital cameras and camera phones make it easy to capture the important moments in your life.
The question, then, is how to make those photos and videos easy to find and share with your friends and family? MAGIX Photo Manager 9 does it all for you.
After you’ve downloaded and installed the software on your PC, just connect your camera. Photo Manager will automatically import your photos and videos, and then organize them by date, time and place taken.
It’s a snap to find just what you want—without the hassle of scrolling through thousands of thumbnails.
Photo Manager also lets you do basic editing like cropping, eliminating red-eye and making small color corrections. In just a few minutes, your photos will be looking their best—just like the memories they capture.
Get it now. (Because they’re free.)
The best part? Both Photo Manager and Video Easy are free with your new Logitech webcam.
RightSound technology. Sound right. Naturally.
A better way to video call
Webcams let you see and talk to your friends and family—wherever they are. But with most webcams, you need to wear a headset or you’ll get a distracting echo.
The echo explanation
You’re on a video call with your friend. You’re both using webcams with integrated microphones and typical computer speakers. Here’s where the trouble happens:
The RightSound™ fix
You use a webcam with RightSound technology. The software identifies the sound wave featuring your friend’s voice as it comes through the speakers. When your microphone picks it up, the software filters out the repeated wave so it doesn’t get sent back to your friend. And that means they don’t hear an echo.
Other webcams eliminate echo by muting your microphone when the person on the other end is speaking. It’s kind of like talking on a walkie-talkie—not a very natural way to have a chat. RightSound technology doesn’t mute your mic so you can both talk whenever you want. It makes your video calls just like talking to someone in the same room.
RightLight™ technology. Look natural. Even when you don’t have natural lighting.
Web calls get real
A webcam makes it feel like you’re right there with your family and friends—no matter where they are. But low-light or a bright window in the room can leave you looking silhouetted or surround your face with ghostly bright lighting.
Webcams and low light generally don’t get along. That’s why RightLight technology includes CMOS sensors that more precisely measure and maximize the light in any situation. Whether your face is shadowed or the whole image is dark, poorly lit areas will appear brighter and have more detail.
Goodbye, orange skin
Bright colors are pretty. Unnaturally saturated skin? Not so pretty. So we pay careful attention to how our webcams with RightLight technology reproduce light and dark skin tones. We adjust the camera’s color hues and saturation so your skin looks natural, not orange.
The true you
Not into the fun house look? Have no fear.
