    Comments about Logitech Broadcaster Wi-Fi Webcam for Mac / iOS:

    Key points are this wi-fi webcam:
    Mac and ioS
    Needs sufficient wi-fi to broadcast (Not suitable for your wi-fi cafe)

    My purpose was to have a second webcam, something more affordable than a camcorder but with a microphone jack input for my Zoom H4N.

    In my home, I get excellent reception with my wi-fi network.
    With my iPad, the options are only record to iPad or stream to UStream.
    With my Mac Mini, I can use it as a secondary camera for other native Mac apps, but not every app that uses a camera, so read Logitech's description specifics.

    Not considering potential software upgrades to work differently, There are a few comments I have read by other users that should be dismissed.

    First, The setup is simple and allow the app either on the iPad or the Mac to automatically update the firmware. It does this automatically.

    Second, LISTEN FOR THE BEEP. The beeps tell you when you scan the QR code that you have a connection. Don't just hold it for x seconds and assume you are connected.

    Third, Audio sounds pretty good (If you have adequate wi-fi). I suspect people complaining of canny audio were compromised by their wi-fi bandwith as audio deteriorates and then video deteriorates when streaming wirelessly with many services and this is nothing new.

    Fourth, The battery is removable. It has disposal instructions in the manual. Many reviews said "No removable battery" presumably meaning that you cannot easily take one battery out and plug another battery in. I haven't researched the cost of the internal battery, but knowing it is not built in like some electronics, I feel the Logitech Wi-Fi Webcam is not a life of the battery device.

    If you recognize this is not a camcorder, will not work necessarily in crowded coffee shops where bandwidth is already low, you will find that it works well in the places you have sufficient bandwidth and provide adequate light. It is not a baby monitor as it does not have night vision anything.
