Logitech Orbit AF : Features/Overview
Review on the Logitech QuickCam Orbit AF

5 Reasons For

Good Expert Reviews

Expert review site Howstuffworks.com scored this webcam 80 out of 100.

Logitech Has Excellent Reviews for Its Webcams

On average Logitech low megapixel count webcams have excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all webcams built by Logitech.

Has a Built-In Microphone

Like most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Orbit AF, the Logitech Orbit AF has a built-in microphone.

It may also be worth considering one of the other webcams with a built-in microphone currently available including the Logitech 960-000842-981-000094[plb_3238822_price], the LogiLink UA0161[plb_1756643_price], or the Advent AWC213[plb_2665931_price] which has better reviews.

1600 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The highest video resolution of the Orbit AF is 1600 x 1200 pixels. That's over six times the video resolution of the most common maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels.

This webcam's video resolution (1600 x 1200 pixels) is in fact the best video resolution amongst all webcams of a comparable spec and age to the Orbit AF.

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

Quite Small Minimum RAM

The smallest minimum RAM of webcams of this age and spec is 32MB and the biggest is 1.1GB. With a minimum RAM of only 256 megabytes, the Logitech Orbit AF has one of the smaller minimum RAM amongst similar spec webcams of this age.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The Orbit AF does not have a motion detector. Most of the other webcams that were released more than two years ago also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The Orbit AF is not USB powered, although it is worth noting that most of the other webcams of this age and type are also not USB powered.

If you want a webcam that is USB powered then you might want to consider the C300[pl_446165_price], or the 3000[pl_961324_price] both from Logitech or the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Most comparable spec webcams that came out more than two years ago do not feature face tracking. The Orbit AF is no exception to this as it too 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], the Thrustmaster Optical Glass[plb_1043509_price], or the Sweex WC350[plb_1842912_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Not Mac Compatible

The Orbit AF is not Mac compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec webcams that came out more than two years ago are also not Mac compatible.

If you would prefer a webcam that is Mac compatible then you might also want to consider the LogiLink UA0075[plb_141810_price], the Logitech C300[plb_446165_price], or the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD[plb_1350894_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The Orbit AF does not have a snapshot button, although this is within the context that most of the other webcams of this type and age also do not have a snapshot button.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a snapshot button and we think the C250[pl_101761_price], or the C600[pl_497439_price] both from Logitech or the Tracer Gizmo[plb_1994550_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Most webcams that were released around the same time as the Orbit AF do not have a zoom capability. The Orbit AF is no exception to this as it too does not have a zoom capability.

There are a number of alternative webcams which also have a zoom capability which you might also want to consider including the iMicro CAM-IMC626[plb_2269735_price], the Advent AWC213[plb_2665931_price], or the HP KQ245AA[plb_1479494_price].

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The Orbit AF does not have a night mode. Most of the other webcams of this type and age also do not have a night mode.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a night mode to this webcam and we think the PLCM19[pl_101449_price], the PLCM21[pl_101453_price], or the PLCM22IR[pl_101457_price] all from Pyle which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Not Full HD

The Logitech Orbit AF is not Full HD. Most of the other similar spec webcams that have been on the market for more than two years are also not Full HD.

Webcams which are Full HD that might be worth considering include the Thrustmaster Link[plb_1043506_price], the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD[plb_1350894_price], or the Logitech TV Cam HD[plb_1515821_price] which also has a higher rating.

3 Other reasons to consider the Logitech Orbit AF

Average Maximum Frame Rate

With a maximum frame rate of 30 frames per second, the Orbit AF has a pretty average maximum frame rate compared to most of the other low megapixel count webcams that were launched around the same time as the Orbit AF.

Alternative 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available which you might want to consider include the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema[plb_85750_price], the MSI StarCam Clip[plb_637711_price], or the HP NG855AA[plb_493365_price] which has better reviews.

If this Logitech webcam maximum frame rate is too low for you then you might also want to look at the Gembird CAM0360U-1[plb_1284889_price] (60fps), or the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10[plb_1343171_price] (60fps) which also has a higher rating.
