Logitech QuickCam Ultra Vision

by Rob Williams on February 14, 2007 in Peripherals

If you frequently use a webcam and are looking for the best one available, I don’t think there will be many other choices than the Ultra Vision. It’s equipped with a large lens, comprised of five glass elements for the best image quality possible. When taking everything into consideration though, is it worth your $120?

Page 2 – Installation

The manual explicitly tells you that you should install the software prior to plugging the webcam in, so for once, I listened. The first screen you will see is a standard welcome screen with “download latest installer” checked by default. Though this is a new webcam, there was already newer software for the taking, which downloaded in less than a minute.

The remainder of the installation is straight forward, with the “Logitech Messenger” feature also being checked by default. The entire process took around 4 minutes, which includes downloading of the latest installer.

Once the installation is finished, you will need to calibrate your microphone and volume dials.

That’s it! Couldn’t be simpler, really.

Quick Vision Usage

Once the install is finished, you get something like this on your screen. Minus the ugly mug, of course.

One thing I noticed right away was the fact that I could barely see my face. Where does this RightLight come in? Ahh, here we are.

The odd thing is here, is that the RightLight was on auto by default, but seemed to have done nothing. You can see in the picture above that I shifted the Spot Metering over a smidgen, which helped brighten up the frame a little. We have a nice HDR-like effect going on here as well.
