Got Logitech Quickcam Orbit AF

I already had the Orbit MP, which I was quite happy with.
But I recently discovered that Skype supported what they are calling “High Quality Video”. Now this only works on select Logitech hardware, but not the MP version of the Orbit.

I am kinda drooling over the posible pictuer quality this offers though, and considdering me and Lia’s relationship is currently very heavily reliant on Skype, it makes sense we get the most possible out of it.

So as a present to myself for my recent promotion, I bought the AF version on Saterday, here they are side by side:

Left is the MP, right is the AF version.

AF stands for Auto Focus, and the feature works quite well. Its got a far better lense, made by Carl Zeiss, which is another cool branding victory for them.

Now I was gonna give my MP to Lia, but we actually want to do High Quality Video both ways, so she is now considdering getting the Pro 9000

Anyhow, I am very happy with it so far. Its capable of very high quality streaming video, and although its only a 2mp sensor, it can extrapolate to 8pm resolution.
