11 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Average

Webcam expert review site clubic.com scored this webcam 68%.

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Most webcams of this type and age do not have a motion detector. The Foscam FI8910W is no exception to this as it too does not have a motion detector.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a motion detector and we think the C270[pl_37101_price], the C170[pl_824911_price], or the C615[pl_838859_price] all from Logitech which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The highest video resolution of the FI8910W is 640 x 480 pixels. That's 67% less video resolution than a 1280 x 720 pixels webcam, which is the most frequently found video resolution.

A 640 x 480 pixels maximum video resolution is in fact the worst video resolution amongst all webcams of this age and type.

The best video resolution across comparable types of webcam is 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The FI8910W is not USB powered. Most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been around for more than two years are also not USB powered.

Webcams which are USB powered that might also be worth looking at include the C270[pl_37101_price], or the B990[pl_746748_price] both from Logitech or the Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD[plb_1350894_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The FI8910W does not feature face tracking, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other webcams of this age and spec also do not feature face tracking.

Alternative webcams which also feature face tracking that you might want to consider include the C310[pl_265576_price], or the C910[pl_377024_price] both from Logitech or the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000[plb_598566_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not Mac Compatibility

The Foscam FI8910W is not mac compatibility, although this is within the context that most of the other webcams of this spec and age are also not mac compatibility.

Webcams which are mac compatibility that might also be worth looking at include the C910[pl_377024_price], the C300[pl_446165_price], or the C615[pl_838859_price] all from Logitech which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Like most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been available for around the same time as the FI8910W, the FI8910W does not have a zoom capability.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a zoom capability and we think the Zalman ZM-PC100[plb_3076718_price], the Cisco PrecisionHD[plb_1506318_price], or the iMicro CAM-IMC626[plb_2269735_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The FI8910W does not have a snapshot button. Most of the other webcams of a comparable age and spec to the FI8910W also do not have a snapshot button.

It is worth considering other webcams which also have a snapshot button including the C250[pl_101761_price], or the B905[pl_546303_price] both from Logitech or the Approx APPWC03HD[plb_2432073_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Full HD

The Foscam FI8910W is not full HD. Most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been around for more than two years are also not full HD.

If you would prefer a webcam that is full HD then you might want to look at the FaceCam 2020[pl_2797352_price], or the WideCam F100[pl_1711680_price] both from Genius or the Gembird A4-PK-920H[plb_2788244_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The FI8910W does not have a night mode. Most of the other webcams of this age and type also do not have a night mode.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also have a night mode including the LogiLink WC0022[plb_1373408_price], the Tenda C30[plb_2035291_price], or the T'nB NIGHTY480[plb_2164931_price] which also has a higher rating.
