Undoubtedly one of the best offerings on the market right now, The Logitech C270 Web Camera combines an attractive design with an impressive set of features enough to satisfy even the most demanding of web cam users. This is yet another release from Logitech stable, which has become a household name on the international Web Camera scene. Released in 2010, together with the Logitech HD Pro Webcams C910, C510 & C310, it delivers good graphics (video and photo) together with excellent sound quality and all this for just under $40.00. It might not get the same rave reviews as some of the other big names in the Logitech stable, but this camera is no lightweight.
Although it is positioned last in the HD camera hierarchy that was released by Logitech, it does hold its own against the big guns. When you look at it closely, there really is very little separating these cameras. The Logitech C270 HD Web Camera surely holds its own against other higher priced models available on the market today. It provides seamless integration with a host of Instant Messengers including Skype, Windows Live ™ Messenger, Yahoo! ® Messenger, AOL ® Instant Messenger (AIM ® and a host of other Instant Messengers that support High Definition Video Conferencing. The C270 is really a steal, combining a good features set with affordability and user friendliness. Just like its sister models released in the same year, the Logitech C270 HD Pro Webcam utilises Logitech’s Vid HD as the native software. Vid HD is Logitech’s High Definition Instant Messenger which is easy to install and use and runs across platforms including windows and Apple operating systems.
One of the best innovations to come from Logitech is the Logitech Fluid Crystal technology which they have implemented on all their cameras. It is an algorithm that allows for clear picture and audio quality. It automatically balances out sound and video thereby removing any crackling audio and choppy pictures. It works by balancing out light and colours thereby giving true to life images in still photos and on video. It also enables clear picture quality in cases where there is not sufficient lighting.
The Logitech C270 comes bundled with the MAGIX Video and Photo Editing Suites.
The video editing suite (MAGIX Video easy) is, as the name implies, very easy to use. In comparison with other video editing software, it comes with very easy functions and you can produce stunning home videos with it. You can cut, edit and combine different clips, add music, images and transitions. MAGIX Video Easy comes with full Facebook and YouTube integration allowing you to upload videos directly from the application.
Photo Manager 9 is a photo editing suite that allows you edit and organise your digital photo library on your computer. Once installed, Photo Manager 9 will not only automatically import all your pictures, but will also sort all your photos by date and time enabling you to find that particular photo even amongst thousands.
