From the photos above, one aoftware be surprised that actually the iSight in the MacBook Pro got the white balance the most correct, but other than that, both the Logitech and the P2V provided a clearer, sharper image, no doubt due to their autofocusing capabilities.

Picture quality was very good and certainly sftware better than built-in, fixed focus cameras that ship with most laptops. Lacking a built-in microphone, video capture capabilities, and with really slow autofocus this product really should be thought of as a higher-end camera for IM applications with bonus features for live presentation. If the computer still asks for the driver, and you cannot see the live image of P2V in Presenter or Skype, then it’s probably a case of hardware failure.


Because of this rather blatant flooding of the market with little digital eyeballs, webcams are not a hot topic, although internet telephony sees widespread use in business and home settings. If the limitations of built-in cameras bother you, then the P2V is worth a look.

Since the software defaults to low levels of sharpening, this is how we tested the camera. The articulating stand is useful for getting the camera exactly eye-level, which greatly enhances the quality of face-to-face video conferences. At the far end is a switch which allows the user to select between single shot AF or continuous AF.


Yes, Point 2 View works with both Windows and Macintosh. Currently, iMovie doesn’t support external USB devices in direct-capture mode. The bottom of the P2V contains a receptacle for the stand mount, and thoughtfully the receptacle itself rotates in place, allowing the camera to be turned while the stand remains stationary.

These days, miniature cameras can be found embedded in the display bezel of nearly every notebook and netbook, as well as a good portion of LCD monitors. Point 2 View outputs video images up to resolution of xwhich meets the technical specifications supported by major video-calling software such as Skype. The chromed lens ring encircles a matte black lens surround, with an absolutely tiny lens in the center.
