7 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Foscam low megapixel count webcams have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all webcams produced by Foscam.

Has a Motion Detector

The Foscam FI9821EP has a motion detector, which is unusual. Most of the other low megapixel count webcams that are a comparable age to the FI9821EP do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Price Drop of £7.79

In the last 37 days the FI9821EP has dropped in price by £7.79.

Quite High Maximum Frame Rate

The lowest maximum frame rate of webcams of a comparable spec and age to the FI9821EP is 25fps, the highest is 60fps, and the average maximum frame rate is 36fps. The Foscam FI9821EP has one of the higher maximum frame rates (60 frames per second) amongst low megapixel count webcams of this age.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Foscam FI9821EP has a built-in microphone. Most of the other webcams of a comparable age and type to the FI9821EP also have a built-in microphone.

There are a number of alternative webcams which also have a built-in microphone which you might want to look at including the Digicom IPC331-T01[plb_3430068_price].

Has a Night Mode

The FI9821EP has a night mode, which is unusual. Most of the other low megapixel count webcams that were released around the same time as the FI9821EP do not have a night mode.

Chart Edit

1280x720@30fps Resolution At Capture Speed

This webcam has a resolution at capture speed of 1280x720@30fps, which is typical of many similar spec webcams that were released around the same time as it.

11 Reasons Against

Difficult to Use

One person who reviewed it thought it was not easy to setup. Brendan Comerford wrote on Amazon “The product itself is promising although not as easy to set-up port forwarding as claimed” and rated it 60 out of 100.

Poor Connectivity

One Foscam FI9821EP reviewer who reviewed it reckoned that it was not wifi compatible. Last year Brendan Comerford scored it 60 out of 100 and he said on Amazon “When delivered I found that it has no WiFi capability” in his review of the Foscam FI9821EP.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The FI9821EP does not feature face tracking, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other low megapixel count webcams that are a similar age to the FI9821EP also do not feature face tracking.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

Like most of the other webcams that were launched around the same time as the FI9821EP, the Foscam FI9821EP is not USB powered.

Chart Edit

Not Mac Compatible

Most low megapixel count webcams that came out around the same time as the FI9821EP are not Mac compatible. The FI9821EP is no exception to this as it too is not Mac compatible.

Chart Edit

Only RJ-45 Interface

The FI9821EP has an RJ-45 interface which is better than most webcams of a similar age and spec to it. Most webcams of this type and age have a USB interface.

This webcam's interface (RJ-45) is in fact the worst interface across all webcams of a similar spec and age to the FI9821EP.

Across comparable types of webcam the best interface is USB 2.

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The highest video resolution of the FI9821EP is 1280 x 720 pixels. That's 56% less video resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels webcam, which is the most common video resolution. Webcams of a comparable spec and age to the FI9821EP maximum video resolutions range from 640 x 480 pixels to 2560 x 1920 pixels.

Chart Edit

Not Full HD

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

The Foscam FI9821EP does not have a zoom capability, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec webcams that came out around the same time as the FI9821EP also do not have a zoom capability.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

Most similar spec webcams that were launched around the same time as the FI9821EP do not have a snapshot button. The FI9821EP is no exception to this as it too does not have a snapshot button.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow Diagonal Field of View

At only 75 degrees, the Foscam FI9821EP has a quite narrow diagonal field of view compared to most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been available for more than a year. The narrowest diagonal field of view of webcams that were released one year ago is 75°, the widest is 140°, and the average diagonal field of view is 100°.
