I would recommend this web cam to everyone looking for a high quality, easy to install web camera! My company was looking for a high quality web cam with a wide-angle lens that we could use in our conference room for meetings with our colleagues in London. We mounted the web cam on top of the television mounted on the wall at the end of the room and the web cam was able to see everyone sitting around the conference table.

This web cam works really well in low light. When we initially tested it, the lights in our conference room were turned off. The room was rather gloomy because it was overcast outside and the only light was the light coming through the windows. The image coming from the camera looked perfect and you couldn't tell that the room lights were off.

We primarily wanted to use this web cam with GoToMeeting and their new web cam sharing feature. It worked perfectly! You can definitely see the difference in quality between this web cam and the lower resolution web cams that our colleagues have built into their laptops.

Setting the web cam for 16:9 provides a wider image pick up and captures our 4 foot wide by 10 foot long conference room table and the people sitting around it with no problem. Only the two people sitting closest to the camera were cut off and this was remedied by having them slide their chairs slightly farther away from the camera.

A Mac can see the camera and use it. But cannot capture the HD aspect. The software is not made for Mac.

Wouldn't have picked it up for Mac but was okayed by several B&H staff in that department.

              Comments about Logitech C920 HD Pro Webcam:

              This was my first webcam that I bought from Logitech. I expected no less from their quality. The package only contained the device itself with a couple of manuals detailing how you can set up your webcam right out of the box. You can immediately plug it into your PC or Mac and it will install itself. The camera itself contains a Carl Zeiss lens, one of the best lens makers in the world so the quality that the camera produces is no joke! I absolutely love this piece of hardware and would buy one for a friend on the spot.

                      The C920 was super easy to install and use... We used the C920 to Live Feed an Event for Friends and Family on youtube... The Sharpness is amazing... I set the exposure and color balance to auto... The C920 made every adjustment with no problem.... I did have to set the C920 to the quality 720... if I left that resolution on auto the C920 would go to a lower setting... The C920 has a zoom feature which I did not use.... but I did run a few tests and the quality was still very good...

                          My goal in purchasing the C920 was to do "hands-free" FaceTime video calls on my Mac Mini. It turns out the video works very well. Unfornately, when using FaceTime, the built-in "omni-directional" microphone produces echo... making the unit unusable without headphones. I tried several things including working with Logitech Customer Service and finally gave up on using the built-in microphone.

                          To solve the problem, I purchased a seperate "shotgun" hypercardioid micorphone and used other equipment I already had to interface the new microphone with the computer.

                          I caution others who expect use this for hands-free FaceTime.

                                        This product has a very wide field of view, and we use it on our Skype calls to my son and my new grandson. Zooms, moves, etc., just as claimed. A good value for the $$ and I am buying one for my son. B and H as always, does a superior job of getting the product to me.

                                              Video phoning with friends & colleagues. It also works as a microscope and telescope eyepiece camera. The resolution is high enough to show very fine details. I especially enjoy the automatic focus, color, brightness and contrast control. The only downside is that the camera does not swivel unless it is mounted on a tripod head - fortunately, the webcam's base has a tripod socket.

                                                  Unable to adjust camera settings. Reverts to a factory setting when you leave the "saved' personal setting.
