This new webcam has a huge lens that lets you zoom in on tour subjects from far away. While they don’t say what the zoom ratio is, it’s clear that the telephoto lens increases the range substantially over most webcams.
Like a giant cyclops sitting on your desk, the USB Big Eye Webcam not only has a big lens, it’s got some pretty nice other features for an inexpensive cam.
It’s got an 8-LED ring that provides nighttime illumination, and can swivel all the way around on its clip-on base. Image resolution is very good at 1280×960 and it can capture up to 30fps. The camera also has a built-in microphone so it’s good for video conferencing and chat applications.
The Big Eye Webcam is available now from Brando.
