4 Reasons For

USB Powered

Unlike most of the other similar spec webcams that have been around for more than two years which are not USB powered, the Gembird CAM82U is USB powered.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative USB powered webcams currently available including because of it's better review score, the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], or the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price].

Has a Built-In Microphone

Like most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been available for around the same time as the CAM82U, the Gembird CAM82U has a built-in microphone.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The highest video resolution of the Gembird CAM82U is 1600 x 1200 pixels. That's over six times the video resolution of the most frequently found maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels.

A 1600 x 1200 pixels maximum video resolution is in fact the best video resolution across all webcams that are a comparable age to the CAM82U.

The worst video resolution amongst similar types of webcam is 640 x 480 pixels.

8 Reasons Against

The Gembird CAM82U does not have a motion detector. Most of the other webcams of a similar age and type to the CAM82U also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Like most of the other low megapixel count webcams that were launched more than two years ago, the Gembird CAM82U does not feature face tracking.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a face tracking and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

The Gembird CAM82U does not have a zoom capability, although this is within the context that most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been around for around the same time as the CAM82U also do not have a zoom capability.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a zoom capability to this webcam and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price], or the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

This low megapixel count webcam was released over four years ago.

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the Gembird CAM82U has a pretty standard maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams of this age and type.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available including the LifeCam Cinema[pl_85750_price], or the LifeCam HD-5000[pl_703784_price] both from Microsoft or the Logitech Pro9000 [plb_546300_price] which has better reviews.
