TouchCam N1 vs Logitech WebCam

I love these kinds of questions. They’re short, sweet and right to the point. This caller didn’t even introduce himself. He simply wanted to know which webcam is better: the FaceVsion N1 or the Logitech 9000. These types of questions are great, because I’ve actually used these products myself and can form a good opinion.

Right now, the FaceVsion N1 camera is not available to order or buy. The Logitech camera is, though. I’ve done some work with the FaceVsion. It’s an excellent camera, I give my word on that. It works on both Windows and OS X. Everything is controlled in the hardware. It happens on the device… there’s no software involved. It’s one of the best-quality out there today.

I’m also happy with the Logitech. It, too, is controlled only in the hardware. It has virtually the same price point. The Logitech does not do HD, though. If you’re looking to record in HD, you’ll need to go with the FaceVsion model.

While covering the CES conference for us recently, Traci was astounded by the new Facevision TouchCam N1. It’s an HD video cam with an embedded H.264 codec chip, and dual microphones! This allows for crystal-clear HD video and superior audio at the same time. This little gadget is the first Skype certified video camera, and works perfectly for all of your video-conferencing needs.

The folks at Facevision believe they have developed the next generation in webcams with this TouchCam N1. It’s a natural extension to video camera users. It’s plug-and-play via USB, so it works on any operating system. This is not only the World’s first Skype certified webcam, it’s also the first HD webcam! It renders in true 720p!

Over the years, Skype has evolved into one of the premier ways to keep in touch with business contacts, family and friends. By using the Facevision TouchCam, Skype users can enjoy HD-quality video conferencing. The picture is so true-to-life that it will almost seem as though you can reach right through your screen and touch the other person!

The camera will be available in early March, 2010, and should have a retail price of around $119.00 USD.

Thanks to Creative for sending Traci the Vado 3 to use during CES!
