    A very good Camera. Pleased with purchase. Easy to operate. The picture is sharp and of good quality. So is the micro-phone:
    The quality of the audio output is by far more superior compared to the previous built-in micro-phones I’ve tried and tested.

    One thing though: The Quick Guide doesn’t provide you with a link to download the required software.
    All it says is: Your webcam offers plug-and-play connection. Just insert the webcam USB cable into a computer USB port.
    So, I still had to do the following:
    I went into Logitech webcam support and downloaded the software for this camera.
    Steps >
    Point the cursor to Support and click on:
    1. Support + Downloads
    2. Webcams
    3. Quick Cam Pro 9000 (M/N: V-UBM46, UBM46)
    4. Downloads (Read Download Instructions)
    5. Download Software and Install

    The Camera works fine once the installation is complete.

    The Quickcam Pro 9000 is probably the best webcam on the market, and Logitech has done a great job making it both high-quality, and easy to use. Granted, the camera is one of more expensive out there, but you’ll be getting your money’s worth.

    When you first get the box home you’ll be able to see the camera sitting at the very top of the box encased in plastic. The box opens from the bottom, and all of the packaging slides easily out. Inside you’ll find: the camera, installation Disc, a quick start guide, and an “Important Information” slip. The quick start guide will walk you through the installation in 12 easy steps in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese, as well as providing support numbers should anything go wrong. The Information slip has some FCC warnings, and Warranty Information inside. No true “manual” but I hardly read those anyway. The camera itself was still inside it’s plastic enclosure, and once that was removed, the camera easily came out.

    The camera itself seems very sturdy. All of the hinges seems strong, and have a very stiff rotation, something thats nice considering that this will be sitting on top of my monitor. On one half you have the camera, with a small button which takes pictures automatically, on the other side you have a microphone. Everything seems to be of the highest build quality, and I would fully expect this thing to last for a very long time.
    In terms of setup, I messed around with a few different configurations to see what was the best way to actually set the camera up. Logitech has made a nice system to use the camera on top of monitors. A small catch sits on the front of the monitor, while the hinged leg props it up to the proper angle. Even with my hefty 2″ thick monitor, I found that the camera sat stably. I also tried to use the camera as a stand, and attempted to use it sitting on my desk, this did not go so well. A combination of the single leg, and the bulging camera made almost every setup on my desk unstable. The leg does not have enough width to keep the camera from falling over, and even when I tried using the camera to stabilize against the desk, the bulging camera caused it to still tilt slightly. In the end I had to resort back to the standard top of the monitor setup, a tad bit disappointing, but absolutely nothing deal breaking.

    Just as a test, I plugged the camera right into my system, just to see how well it works as a Plug and Play. At the time, I am running Windows 7, and found that within a moment, my camera was up and ready to use. Starting up Skype to double check, the camera was indeed working. I then unplugged it and decided to run the instalation disc to see what it included. The disc came with drivers, Logitech Webcam Software, and a program called Logitech Vid (essentially Logitech’s version of Skype). The included software was excellent, far exceeding my expectations. The Webcam Software will be your main way to access anything to do with you camera. That includes settings, camera, video, video effects, as well as links to programs (like Skype, GMail video, video editing software, and even YouTube). I was overall impressed with the ease of use of the software, as well as the many settings that can be changed. Also a fun side note is just how fantastic the video effects are.
    Logitech included effects that change the way the video outputs. The video filters will pinch, twist and warp the video like a fun house mirror, as well as invert colors, or posterize the image, something Mac’s have done for a while with photobooth. However Logitech has also included filters that go a bit further then that. The first one adds props to the image, such as add glasses, hats, eye patches, and other fun things to whomever is in the frame. Also added are Avatars, which tracks your facial movements and transfers those movements to a 3D character, such as a shark or a stick figure, then overlays that character over the video, making it seem like the avatar is the one making the video. And the last filter Logitech added is one that cuts your eyes and mouth out of the video and places them on a still image, such as the Mona Lisa. The result is a talking, blinking Mona Lisa. I should mention that some of these filters worked best with one person, centered in the shot, with good lighting. They did work with multiple people, but the camera had a little bit of a hard time deciding who to put the props on, or where the face actually was. However in the end, It still worked fantastically well. These are great little toys, and I enjoyed messing around with all of them, especially with friends around.

    Image Quality:
    This is where Logitech really hit the nail on the head. The image quality is astounding. You can take up to 8MP images, and 720p video captures. The images were sharp and clear, and the video was excellent. Color-wise, Logitech also exceeds expectations. Colors were clear and vibrant, and thanks to some clever software, lighting was always just right. The images were also always in focus. I really couldn’t ask for anything more from a webcam. Logitech also allows you to manually adjust the color levels, brightness, and focus on your own, but the software did such a great job, I found it wasn’t really necessary.
    On skype I found that I came through great. I was told the video looked great, and there was no choppy image. Also, Microphone quality was up there, they had no problem hearing, or understanding me on the other side of the line.

    Overall Logitech impressed me. With such a high price tag, my expectations were admittedly very high, but they managed to meet every expectation, and in certain areas exceed them. Image quality was top of the line, video capture was excellent, and build quality was impressive. The software was where Logitech really surprised me. rarely do the manufacture’s put so much effort into making a satisfying software suite. This will be one of the few that I will use on a day to day basis. In the end, if you can afford the price tag, and really want the best from your webcam, Logitech’s Quickcam Pro 9000 is the best choice.

    I was looking for an external camera to go with my iMac. This one does work, however you can not change any settings when using with a Mac. But it does work.

    We use this webcam for video conferencing. The video and sound quality is first rate. There is a noticeable difference in HD quality with a high quality lens.

    I use it for Skype lessons. It has a great mic built in. This is very convenient for video calls.

    If I could give this product six stars, I would. I’ve purchased a couple of webcams over the years. All turned out to be just hard enough to use and just low enough quality that they eventually went in a drawer. Then, three weeks ago, before a trip to India and China, I decided to give webcams another try so that I could stay in touch with home. Based on Amazon reviews and previous good experiences with other Logitech products, I purchased a Logitech QuickCam Pro for Notebooks for my laptop and a Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 for the home computer.

    Both cameras are beautifully designed. The notebook version is very small (even smaller than it looks in the picture) and takes up about as much space than my mobile phone in my briefcase. Both units fit onto the monitors very easily (the Notebook version clips on, while the 9000 just sits on top of the monitor with a counterweight in the back). Installation of the software was a breeze — took just a few minutes and installed without a hitch.

    The real news for me, though, is the Logitech Vid software. At first, I didn’t load the software, because it wasn’t on the CD (I had to download it). However, after trying video chat on gmail (which was a bit confusing and kept crashing my computer), I downloaded the Logitech Vid software on both my laptop and my home computer. It’s incredibly easy to use. All I had to do was register an email address on each computer, after which call from system to system was as easy as clicking on the picture of the person on the other system. No exaggeration, it was easier than dialing a phone number.

    For the last two weeks, I’ve used the Logitech Quickcam to call home nightly from both India and China, using the regular internet access from the hotels. The process was incredibly simple — a few seconds after clicking on the icon for the other computer, I was connected with home. The video quality was excellent, even in very poor lighting conditions, and the autofocus worked very well to keep us both sharp. The audio quality was also very clear; in fact, it was clearer than phone calls back to the States.

    Given that calls back to the States normally cost $1 to $3 a minute from Asia, I figure I made back the cost of the cameras in a single trip. Since the video calls involved no incremental cost, I was able to talk as long as I wanted. Also, being able to see the family, rather than just hear them, was huge.

    In a nutshell, I couldn’t be more pleased. I promptly bought two more cameras for someone who works for me and also travels a lot internationally. I’ll soon be ordering a camera for the grandparents; installation and use was simple enough that I’m confident my 80-something parents will have no problem setting it up and using it.

    As I mentioned at the outset, I’ve tried webcams several times before, without success. Maybe they’ve simply gotten better since the last time I tried, or maybe Logitech finally cracked the code of extreme ease-of-use combined with very high picture and sound quality. In any case, the outcome was a true blessing for me when traveling internationally. I highly, highly recommend this camera to anyone who wants to stay in touch with family and friends who are far away and who wants a solution that’s as easy as (or actually easier than) a phone call. I couldn’t be more pleased with this product.
