Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The VG-STC3000 does not feature face tracking, although keep in mind that most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the VG-STC3000 also do not feature face tracking.

It is worth considering alternative webcams which also feature face tracking including the Logitech C310[plb_265576_price].

Not Mac Compatibility

The Samsung VG-STC3000 is not mac compatibility, although this is within the context that most of the other webcams of this age and type are also not mac compatibility.

If you want a webcam that is mac compatibility then you might want to consider the Genius FaceCam 321[plb_1787710_price], or the Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD[plb_1350894_price].

Very Small Digital Zoom

At only 2 times zoom factor, the VG-STC3000 has a quite small digital zoom compared to most of the other similar spec webcams that are a comparable age to the VG-STC3000. Across all the webcams of this age and type the digital zooms range from 2x to 10x, and the average digital zoom is 3.9x.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Most medium megapixel webcams that have been on the market for more than two years do not have a zoom capability. The Samsung VG-STC3000 is no exception to this as it too does not have a zoom capability.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

Most webcams of a comparable age and type to the VG-STC3000 do not have a snapshot button. The VG-STC3000 is no exception to this as it too does not have a snapshot button.

It is worth considering other webcams which also have a snapshot button including the Logitech C310[plb_265576_price], or the HP HD 3110[plb_706617_price] which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The VG-STC3000 does not have a night mode. Most of the other webcams of a comparable type and age to the VG-STC3000 also do not have a night mode.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a night mode and we think the Atlantis Land MagicView 350 Chat Pack[plb_1796403_price] is also worth considering.
