Target PC brengt ons een review van de IBM PC Camera met USB aansluiting. Dit geinige apparaatje kost slechts $49 dollar en wordt geleverd met een erg groot softwarepakket. Hieronder wat meer info:
Adjustments and tweaks abound in the cameraís control panel. For the video nut like me, I had all the relevant control necessary to grab high quality stills and movies. Yep, you can make your own movies too. Of course the 6-foot USB cable limits you, but Iíve seen up to 25-foot USB extenders in the store if a portable laptop isnít handy. Donít expect digital camera still image quality, as this piece is limited to 352x288 pixelsófar less than the 2000x1500, 3+ Megapixel jobs that can be had today. This camera is meant for casual picture taking/movie making and Internet use. Hey, itís also only 49 bucks.
I had some concerns regarding the lack of a manual zoom, although it does have a very good adjustable focus. When the box says from "close up to infinity", itís not just bogus advertising. The next samples are best case scenarios with good lighting and high-resolution (352x288). The first is a normal shot and the second is of a resistor--kudos to anyone identifying the actual value and tolerance. The resistor still was captured at a distance of less than Ĺ inch. I think that qualifies as a good macro focus.
