Genius Has Good Webcam Reviews

Average reviews across all Genius webcams are good, however average reviews across just Genius's medium megapixel count webcams are poor.

The highest video resolution of the WideCam F100 is 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's over two times the video resolution of a 1280 x 720 pixels webcam, which is the most common video resolution.

A 1920 x 1080 pixels maximum video resolution is actually the best video resolution across all webcams of a comparable age and type to the WideCam F100.

A 640 x 480 pixels maximum video resolution is the worst video resolution amongst similar types of webcam.

Chart Edit

Full HD

The Genius WideCam F100 is Full HD, unlike most of the other medium megapixel count webcams that have been around for a similar time to the WideCam F100 which are not Full HD.

Chart Edit

1080p Supported Video Mode

The Genius WideCam F100 supports a 1080p supported video mode which is better than the 720p supported video mode supported by most webcams of a similar age and type to it.

This webcam's supported video mode (1080p) is actually the best supported supported video mode across all medium megapixel count webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the WideCam F100.

Across comparable types of webcam the worst supported supported video mode is 720p.

In addition, this webcam has a still image resolution of 1280 x 720. Across all comparable spec webcams that came out around the same time as the WideCam F100 the worst still image resolution is 352 x 288 and the best is 2560 x 1920.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Like most of the other similar spec webcams that have been available for more than two years, the Genius WideCam F100 does not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The WideCam F100 is not USB powered. Most of the other medium megapixel count webcams that are a similar age to the WideCam F100 are also not USB powered.

If you are looking for a webcam that is USB powered then you might want to look at the HP HD 3110[plb_706617_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Genius WideCam F100 does not feature face tracking. Most of the other webcams of a similar age and type to the WideCam F100 also do not feature face tracking.

We compared all the other webcams which also feature face tracking to this webcam and we think the Logitech C310[plb_265576_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Mac Compatible

The Genius WideCam F100 is not Mac compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec webcams that came out around the same time as the WideCam F100 are also not Mac compatible.

Webcams which are Mac compatible that might be worth looking at include the Genius FaceCam 321[plb_1787710_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The WideCam F100 does not have a snapshot button, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec webcams that came out more than two years ago also do not have a snapshot button.

There are a number of other webcams which also have a snapshot button which you might want to look at including the Logitech C310[plb_265576_price], or the HP HD 3110[plb_706617_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Most webcams of this age and type do not have a night mode. The Genius WideCam F100 is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a night mode to this webcam and we think the Speed-Link Reflect[plb_533182_price] is also worth considering.
