4 Reasons For

USB Powered

Unlike most of the other webcams that were released around the same time as the CAM82U which are not USB powered, the Gembird CAM82U is USB powered.

Alternative USB powered webcams currently available which you might want to look at include the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The Gembird CAM82U has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other webcams of this type and age.

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 a 640 x 480 pixels webcam, which is the most common video resolution.

A 1600 x 1200 pixels maximum video resolution is actually the best video resolution amongst all low megapixel webcams that are a similar age to the CAM82U.

The worst video resolution across comparable types of webcam is 640 x 480 pixels.

1/3" Optical Sensor Size

The biggest optical sensor size of the Gembird CAM82U is 1/3". That's 33% more optical sensor size than a 1/4" webcam, which is the most common optical sensor size. 4.80 x 3.60mm.

This webcam's optical sensor size (1/3") is actually the best optical sensor size across all similar spec webcams that have been available for around the same time as the CAM82U.

A 1/4" optical sensor size is the worst optical sensor size across similar types of webcam.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Gembird CAM82U does not feature face tracking. Most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been available for around the same time as the CAM82U also do not feature face tracking.

There are a number of other webcams which also feature face tracking which you might also want to look at including the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 which also has a higher rating.

Not Mac Compatibility

The Gembird CAM82U is not mac compatibility. Most of the other webcams of this spec and age are also not mac compatibility.

Webcams which are mac compatibility that might be worth considering include the HP 2100 (£101.94) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The Gembird CAM82U does not have a snapshot button. Most of the other comparable spec webcams that have been available for around the same time as the CAM82U also do not have a snapshot button.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

The Gembird CAM82U does not have a zoom capability. Most of the other webcams that have been around for more than two years also do not have a zoom capability.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a zoom capability and we think the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, or the HP KQ245AA which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Other webcams which also have a night mode that you might also want to consider include the Gembird CAM0360U-1 (£14.90).

Chart Edit

Quite Short Cable Length

With a cable length of only 1.4 meters, the Gembird CAM82U has a fairly short cable length compared to most of the other webcams of a comparable age and spec to the CAM82U. The shortest cable length of webcams that are a comparable age to the CAM82U is 0.7m and the longest is 5.7m.

3 Other reasons to consider the Gembird CAM82U

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when this Gembird webcam was released.

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the Gembird CAM82U has a relatively typical maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams that were released more than two years ago.

There are a number of other 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available that you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000 (£69.99).

If this low megapixel webcam maximum frame rate is too low for you then you might want to look at the Konig CMP-WEBCAM3D10 (£10.31) (60fps).
