Lindy USB MiniCam Pro
Lindy this morning started shipping the USB MiniCam Pro. It tackles the low lighting problems that affect many webcams, the company says, by integrating two sets of lighting into the camera body. Separate infrared and white-light LEDs illuminate the subject without washing out the resuling picture. The device also plugs into a Mac or Windows PC's USB port with a bendable neck to provide a more natural viewing angle for video recipients. An optional model with a permanent stand is also available. Lindy ships the MiniCam Pro immediately for £22 ($43).
