Logitech rolls Mac-ready high end webcam

QuickCam Vision Pro

Logitech this morning made one of its rare webcam offerings for Macs with the advent of the QuickCam Vision Pro. A close cousin of the QuickCam Pro 9000, the USB camera is targeted at Mac mini and Mac Pro owners whose computers don't already have built-in iSight cameras but who want a better-than-average replacement for iChat, Skype, or other video apps. The Vision Pro not only has true glass optics from Carl Zeiss, rather than plastic, but also has a voice coil motor for autofocusing which is much faster and more fine-grained than the stepper motors on most webcams.

The webcam also shoots video at greater than iChat resolution, capturing live video up to 960x720 in programs that support greater than 640x480. The device also has an automatic light adjustment mechanism, is capable of mounting on Apple Cinema Displays, and is entirely plug-and-play on Mac OS X Tiger or Leopard. Logitech requires an 800MHz G4 or better and expects the camera to ship in July for $130.

    we will market

    a camera with the word "Mac" in it to you, for only $50 more than the same camera without the word "Mac" in it's name... Suckers! Seriously, this is stupidly expensive for a 'generic' camera.
