MICROPHONE COMPARISON_ iSight vs Logitech Pro 9000 vs SONY CMU-BR100 vs Playstation Eye
Playstation EYE (PS3) UNBOXING!

3 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

Based on two expert reviews from sites including brighthub.com and M3.idg.se this webcam has an average expert rating of 75 out of 100.

Very High Maximum Frame Rate

With a maximum frame rate of 120 frames per second, the PlayStation Eye has a very high maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams that have been available for around the same time as the PlayStation Eye. The lowest maximum frame rate of webcams that were launched around the same time as the PlayStation Eye is 8fps, the highest is 120fps, and the average maximum frame rate is 31fps.

Chart Edit

Has a Zoom Capability

The PlayStation Eye has a zoom capability, which is unusual. Most of the other webcams of a comparable age and spec to the PlayStation Eye do not have a zoom capability.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative webcams with a zoom capability currently available including cheaper webcams such as the L-Link LL-4186[plb_2285710_price].

Alternative webcams which also have a zoom capability that you might also want to consider include the Genius FaceCam 1000X[plb_2585528_price].

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The PlayStation Eye does not have a motion detector. Most of the other webcams of this age and spec also do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The PlayStation Eye is not USB powered. Most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been around for a similar time to the PlayStation Eye are also not USB powered.

Webcams which are USB powered that might be worth considering include the Logitech C110[plb_326943_price], or the HP HD 2300[plb_1396772_price].

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

The Sony PlayStation Eye does not feature face tracking. Most of the other built-in microphone webcams that were released more than two years ago also do not feature face tracking.

We think you might also be interested in other webcams which also feature face tracking including the Logitech C110[plb_326943_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not Mac Compatibility

Like most of the other built-in microphone webcams that were released more than two years ago, the Sony PlayStation Eye is not mac compatibility.

Webcams which are mac compatibility that might be worth considering include the Genius FaceCam 320[plb_1719586_price].

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

The PlayStation Eye does not have a snapshot button. Most of the other similar spec webcams that have been on the market for around the same time as the PlayStation Eye also do not have a snapshot button.

Other webcams which also have a snapshot button that you might also want to look at include the C110[pl_326943_price], or the QuickCam Deluxe[pl_459547_price] both from Logitech which also has a higher rating.

Like most of the other webcams of a similar age and spec to the PlayStation Eye, the PlayStation Eye is not full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Most webcams of a comparable age and type to the PlayStation Eye do not have a night mode. The PlayStation Eye is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.
