This review is from: unibrain Fire-i IEEE 1394 Digital Camera
Pros: I bought this cam because I needed something that would reliably work with Mac, Linux and Windows and this does easily (though this is mostly thanks to Firewire IIDC). I telecommute cross-country and occasionally need to do video chat.
- Manual focus (for my stationary use this is a definite plus)
- Chainable (I only have 1 - but a plus in my book)
Cons: - No mic - this is the only reason I knock a star/egg.
- I keep the cam and tripod on a slick desk and the (somewhat stiff) firewire cable can skew the tripod.
- No monitor clip ( I could maybe tape/rig the tripod to the back - but it certainly wouldn't be natural )
Other Thoughts: Some apps don't seem to take advantage of the cam's full bandwith (Skype, GTalk) and seem a little laggy. For other apps (Photobooth on Mac) that can - the cam has quite excellent response.READ FULL REVIEW
