Integrates with iPhoto, iMovie, other Mac software
Logitech announced that its flagship HD Pro Webcam C910 is now fully Mac-compatible. The HD Pro Webcam 910 is plug-and-play ready for Photo Booth, iChat and FaceTime. A free download provides integration with iPhoto and IMovie and enable video calling at HD 720p resolution. The HD Pro Webcam can be used with common video calling clients such as Skype, Yahoo! Messenger, and Gmail Voice and Video Chat.
The HD Pro Webcam C910 claims autofocus up to extreme close-up range (7 cm). The webcam can also take 10-megapixel still photos. Stereo audio is provided with two mics, one on either side of the webcam lens.
As noted when it was introduced last August, the HD Pro Webcam does not stream 1080p video. The same utiilty that allows 720p video calling also enables recording of HD 1080p video and one-button uploading to Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 retails for $100. Software to enable full Mac functionality is available for free at the Logitech website.
