We also have a C910 and it works great. We’ve recorded several 1080p videos with no problems, and framerates have been totally smooth. We used a PC with an Intel 965 quad-core processor running at 3.2GHz and 6GB of RAM memory. Also, we recorded our 1080p videos in good lighting, sitting indoors with a large window in front of us providing plenty of daylight. Finally, we made sure to not run any programs other than Logitech’s webcam software and our usual anti-virus program (Avast free edition) while recording. When we tried recording in low light on a 3.0GHz Intel dual-core the results were rather grainy and the framerate slowed to around 10 – 15 frames per second. With good lighting the dual-core managed to record fairly smooth but not perfect. In summary, if you want smooth 1080p video be sure to use a powerful quad-core cpu and have plenty of good bright light on your subject.

I’m really thankful for social media in general, especially before buying anything at all. I have and 2010 i7 Macbook Pro with 8GB Ram (and iSight), and
I wanted to get na HD webcam in order to video chat over Skype with may family. Is this the best choice in this case? I know that
Skype 5.8 for Windows supports Full HD, but I’m not able to confirm this for the Mac version! Thanks!
EDIT: I just saw that “the Mac version of the Skype client has supported full HD video since version 5.3, released back in August 2011” 🙂

It works fine in 720p, no idea if I can try a 1080p video though. Audio is great too.

I haven’t had any trouble recording, so maybe they’ve improved the software. My version is 2.25 build 13.25.1016.

I guess for business purposes the parties may be watching on a 102” LCD screen, but not in my world. I just want to make video calls to my friends iPhones from my home computer since my iPhone 3 doesn’t have video calling capabilities. I use my Google TV and integrated DISH Network employee service to make video calls, and also for home security in the living room. It works great but I was wanting a new camera for still pictures too.

I installed it on my MacBook Pro (8GB RAM) and at anything other than 480, the image swims and curtains. It’s terrible. I’ve installed it on my MacBook Air, strangely the first launch and recording the 720 was great – after relaunching it’s just the same as on the MacBook Pro. Logitech said I need to make sure it’s not in UVC mode – but, as I asked them, how do you do that? The software has NO controls. It’s lame. Waste of money.

The software has proven to be anything but good, and I’ve had the same issue on two separate machines. I have clipped videos to prove “it,” but you might be correct in the assertion that I have a faulty piece of hardware – which doesn’t exactly inspire confidence.

Based on his review, I figured it was going to be a bust. Took it out of the box, installed the software for Mac, and it runs perfectly in 1080p. It didn’t crash at all–I let it record for about 7 minutes and got bored waiting for the crash that didn’t happen.

I’m running a MacPro 3,1 2.8 GHZ single quadcore with 2GB Ram, Snow Leopard, C910 plugged into the open USB port on the Mac Keyboard. May be Pirillo has issues with his hardware (the camera or his USB.

I love my Logitech 9000, but was thinking of upgrading. Now I’ll be waiting until they get better software or somebody writes some.

Whenever I build a new machine, I’m amused at the size of the install of the Logitech package just to run a freaking webcam. (Not the bloatware for photo management they offer, just the basic driver package.) You’d think it was Echelon or something.
