With the prevalence of Skype and the rise of personal YouTube and TwitchTV channels, the webcam is becoming as necessary as the keyboard and mouse and much like other accessories there is a wide array of options for the user to choose. Today we take a look at the Widecam F100 from Genius which boasts to be the world’s first full HD 1080p ultra wide angle webcam. Boasting many useful features for video conferencing as well as personal use, will the F100 prove itself or simply be just another webcam with just another gimmick? Join me to find out.

titleLogitech has gone back to the drawing board and decided to redesign their latest line of webcams. Today's consumer demand great HD videos and photos, whether they are at home or on the go. Logitech certainly has the type of reputation of a company that could be expected to step up and deliver that kind of product. Today we are going to take a look at the Logitech C615 HD webcam. The C615 is a mobile HD webcam that has many features that you would expect and some that are brand new. Let's check it out. 

titleWith High Definition being all the rage recently it’s no surprise that there is a demand for high definition webcams. Microsoft released their LifeCam Cinema with a 720p resolution last fall, they now carry four different models with HD capability’s. Today I will be taking a look at their LifeCam HD-5000. I will compare it to the last webcam we tested, and see if it really deserves its HD name.

titleSome times when you are taking photographs, you run into a situation where you cannot get that perfect shot. Sometimes it’s just a matter of not being able to hold the camera still while holding it in a weird position. The Gorillapod from Joby is designed to help in that situation, and with a price under 20 bucks it won’t even break the bank. Today we will be taking a closer look at it, we can finally perfect our myspace angles without worrying about hurting ourself!

titleBeing a geek you tend to collect interesting gadgets and toys, and being into gaming that collection of toys turns into a high dollar collection of games, equipment, TV’s, PC’s, and computer parts. If you were to lose everything it would be almost irrecoverable. Our friends over at Geeks.com not only have a solution to help you keep an eye on everything, it’s also another toy to play with. In fact they carry an entire selection of Wireless Infrared Motion Cameras. Today we are going to take a closer look at their Airlink Skyipcam777w, a wireless IP camera with full motion capabilities.

IMG_5662_lrWe recently took a look at a new product that has become really popular in the YouTube community called the Flip UltraHD. After my review I was looking into similar products and found out a few other companies make similar products. One of those is the Zx1 from Kodak that was announced at CES this past January. Today I have a chance to take a look at the Zx1 to see how it compares against the Flip UltraHD. The Zx1 doesn’t have ultra or HD in its name but it does record in 720p and its name sounds like a sport bike so it should be an interesting comparison.

IMG_4871 [lr]Ever sense Sony introduced Betamax there has been some variation of a camcorder device on the market. Over the past 8 years most of those devices have started to move to recording to digital media hard drives, flash cards, and even saving digital files on small dvd's. With the popularity of YouTube and other video websites the demand for cheap, easy to use, and portable recording devices has grown. In 2007, Pure Digital Technologies Unveiled the Flip Video. Over the past two years they have released a few different versions, most recently their Flip Ultra HD. With the ability to record 120 minutes of high definition video the Ultra HD will be a great fit with YouTube's HD upgrade. I had the chance to take the Flip UltraHD with me to Million Man Lan in Louisville Ky this past weekend, this gave me a chance to experience the UltraHD's portability and performance.

img_44942-lr-lrsmFor years the idea of video conferencing and video phones was only a pipe dream or a prop in low budget Sci-Fi films. When the internet came around this dream started to become a reality but with many limitations. More recently the idea of video phones has gained a little more traction with the inclusion of microphones and web cams on almost every laptop and some home pc's (in fact I type this right now on a low budget netbook with the features needed to do this). Of course not everyone has this ability and this is where Microsoft comes in with their LifeCam series, specifically the VX-5500. With programs like MSN(windows) messenger and Skype along with the VX-5500 you have the ability to let people see you while they talk (of course this depends on if they really want to see you). Today I'm going to take a look at the VX-5500 to see how it performs at home and on the go to keep in touch with friends and family.
