2 Reasons For

Very Big Optical Zoom

The average optical zoom of webcams of this type and age is 14x, and the optical zoom range from 1.3x to 40x. When compared to other webcams that have been around for around the same time as the VB-C60 that we have assessed the optical zoom of, the Canon VB-C60's optical zoom of 40 times zoom factor is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Very Low Minimum Illumination

The average minimum illumination of webcams that are a similar age to the VB-C60 is 0.67lx, and the minimum illumination range from 0.2lx to 1.5lx. The Canon VB-C60 has a quite low minimum illumination (only 0.2 lux) compared to most of the other webcams that were released more than two years ago.
