Logitech QuickCam Deluxe

Logitech on Wednesday saw fit to announce a pair of new webcams made just for notebook users, including one it says is a truly premium model. The QuickCam Deluxe for Notebooks (pictured) is one of the few webcams to use a glass lens element, evading the cheaper and distorting plastic used by most others. It also relies upon a sharp 1.3-megapixel sensor that helps take sharper photos with the integrated snapshot button. The Deluxe clips on to most notebooks and will ship in April for $60.

Details of the basic camera and a photo follow after the break.

Less demanding users will also have the choice of the standard QuickCam for Notebooks. A plastic element and an 0.3-megapixel (VGA resolution) camera are the only trade-offs, the company says. Both it and the Deluxe share the snapshot button as well as Fun Filters that create fisheye, neon glow, and similar effects. The basic QuickCam should also be ready in April at a lower $40 price.
