5 Reasons For

Genius Has Good Reviews for Its Webcams

Genius built-in microphone webcams have good ratings on average and across all webcams Genius is one of the superior brands.

Fairly High Megapixel

With a megapixel of 8 megapixels, the FaceCam 322 has a quite high megapixel compared to most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been available for a similar time to the FaceCam 322. The megapixels of webcams of a comparable spec and age to the FaceCam 322 range from 0.1MP to 20MP, and the average megapixel is 3.2MP.

We compared all the other 8MP webcams to this webcam and we think because of it's better review score, the Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD (£48.99) is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a webcam with a higher megapixel then you might want to consider the A4Tech PK-950H (16MP).

USB Powered

The Genius FaceCam 322 is USB powered, unlike most of the other webcams of a comparable type and age to the FaceCam 322 which are not USB powered.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other USB powered webcams currently available including the HP KQ245AA which has better reviews.

Has a Zoom Capability

The Genius FaceCam 322 has a zoom capability. Most of the other webcams of this spec and age do not have a zoom capability.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The average weight of built-in microphone webcams that have been around for more than two years is 140g. The Genius FaceCam 322 is one of the lighter similar spec webcams that came out around the same time as the FaceCam 322 (only 50 grams) amongst built-in microphone webcams of this age.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The Genius FaceCam 322 does not have a motion detector, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other built-in microphone webcams that came out around the same time as the FaceCam 322 also do not have a motion detector.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a motion detector to this webcam and we think the Logitech C615 is also worth considering.

Only 640 X 480 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The Genius FaceCam 322 has a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. That's 67% less video resolution than the most common maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.

A 640 x 480 pixels maximum video resolution is in fact the worst video resolution amongst all similar spec webcams that are a comparable age to the FaceCam 322.

A 1920 x 1080 pixels maximum video resolution is the best video resolution amongst comparable types of webcam.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Like most of the other webcams of this age and type, the FaceCam 322 does not feature face tracking.

It is worth also looking at alternative webcams which also feature face tracking including the C310, or the C910 both from Logitech or the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000 which also has a higher rating.

Not Mac Compatibility

Most built-in microphone webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the FaceCam 322 are not mac compatibility. The Genius FaceCam 322 is no exception to this as it too is not mac compatibility.

If you want a webcam that is mac compatibility then you might also want to look at the C910, or the C615 both from Logitech which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button
