on Wednesday announced its new US$79.95 QuickCam Zoom Webcam that’s Mac OS X compatible.
QuickCam Zoom delivers VGA (640×480 pixel) photos and videos. It includes digital zoom software, which offers the option to pan, tilt and zoom up to three times the normal viewing size. Logitech’s face-tracking software automatically enables the camera to pan, tilt and zoom-in on a person’s face, keeping it centered during a video instant messaging session or when recording a video e-mail. QuickCam Zoom, which uses a USB connection, also includes a built-in microphone.
Logitech’s new QuickCam 8.0 software is bundled with QuickCam Zoom. It’s Mac OS X compatible and works with video-enabled Yahoo! Messenger for Mac OS X. Unfortunately, the QuickCam Zoom Webcam doesn’t work with iChat AV.
