LifeCam NX-6000 is a nice little webcam, but may not be all that a user may
expect. The NX-6000 is a high resolution webcam with 2.0 mega pixel video, but
the quality of the video is not all that it would seem in some of the resolution
settings. At 640x480 and 800x600 the NX-6000 performs marvelously, but other
resolution settings are not as nice. At higher resolution motion is blurry and
distorted due to low frames per second, while at the low resolution settings the
picture is out of focus. In the Intellipoint software, there is a focus
adjustment, but it was unavailable for use with this camera. Hardware Pacers
currently has a support request placed with Microsoft concerning the focus issue
and will update this review if any resolution is made.
The video quality settings are
an issue, but the design of this camera is amazing. Very small and portable,
with a retractable lens. Once the lens is out it has the ability to tilt up and
down for the perfect angle. This camera is perfect for portability; it is rugged
and the lens is protected. The camera clip on back is quite sturdy as well. In
addition to all that, this camera comes bundled with a nifty carrying case.
