To deliver image-perfect detail and clarity, the Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro webcam combines Logitech's premium autofocus technology with Carl Zeiss optics. The Logitech webcam uses a voice coil motor for its autofocus system, instead of a stepper motor. Focusing is fast and fluid - crisp even in extreme close-ups only 10 cm from the camera lens. Logitech's autofocus system compensates for changes in image-edge sharpness and refocuses images in less than three seconds. And through its exclusive collaboration with Carl Zeiss, Logitech ensures that the lens meets the world-renowned Zeiss standards for design and manufacturing to achieve superior sharpness in a compact, lightweight design.The 2-megapixel sensor helps the Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro webcam capture video images in high resolution. It is assisted by Logitech's RightLight 2 technology, which enables the webcam to adjust intelligently in dim or harshly backlighted situations.
- High-definition video
- 2-megapixel sensor
- Built-in microphone
- Up to 30 frames per second live video on Skype and iChat
- High-Speed USB 2.0
- Good webcam
Works fine with my 1.33 GHZ PowerBook G4. Truly is "plug and play." Excessive motion creates a pretty serious lag, but otherwise, no big complaints. For me, the camera works better with iChat than Skype. May be a little expensive for some, but I caved because there aren't too many Mac compatible webcams now that the iSights are all built in....more info
- not that great
This is my second webcam of the same model. I stupidly bought this one again because I thought the malfunctioning of the first one might have been a fluke. I researched the heck out of this model and made sure it was compatible with my computer system (mac pro), but I now have problems with the new one. The cam goes in and out and bounces around on my screen (which makes for sea sickness on the other end). The camera will work, but it gets a bit tedious unplugging and plugging it in every time someone Skypes me. And I don't know if it's Skype, but the preferences will change without notice. I know there are other much less expensive models out there that work a lot better...so I would pass on this one.

- Logitech QuickCam
I bought this for my 14 year old daughter to use for her iBook since I read that the cheaper cameras usually won't work with a lot of Mac products. Before I had a chance to set it up she had plugged it in and was video chatting with friends. The quality seems excellent and it is super easy to set-up and use. So far so good. No complaints....more info
- Great unit... even on an older Mac... compared to the competition
Truly "plug & play," with excellent results... even on an older Mac iBook G4 notebook, 1.42 GHz, with 1 GB DDR SDRAM, running Tiger OS 10.4.11, using Skype. I was a bit apprehensive about purchasing this webcam because of some reports about questionable performance on older, "lower horsepower" Macs... but I was pleasantly surprised when it worked flawlessly on mine. The Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro for Mac is far superior to the Macally IceCam2 Webcam. (I have two Mcally Icecam2 units.) In my estimation, images on the Logitech are three to four time clearer than those on the Mcally. To me, the approximately $70 difference is well worth the additional cost. ...more info
- Satisfied customer
I am pleased that it was all so simple. After downloading Skype all I needed do was attach, follow the prompts, and suddenly I am having face to face talk with my 6 year old grandson. I brings people at a distance together. Doesn't get better than that.

- QuickCam is great!
I bought this Webcam so I can talk to my newest granddaughter. She is now five months old. My daughter and I talk almost everyday. I love it and think it's wonderful, but, the picture is a little blurred and because the baby moves around so much, the picture breaks up. It was the best buy to be compatible with my daughter's IMac. I would do it again and again. I love seeing my granddaughter. She is a cutie....more info
- Not bad but not great. Should be cheaper
Worked great for the first couple of weeks but by week 3 it started to act a little wonky. More often than not we need to unplug the device and plug it back in for it to work. It's almost like we have to reset it about every other time. This is a pain because as I am sure most of us don't have the back of a computer that is accessible very easily.
The video quality is great and it captures the sound very well. ...more info
- Sure beats the old iSight
I have to say I can't find anything to fault. It does a fantastic job in low light. The colors are the most accurate I've seen from a webcam... and sharp. I'm using it on a Mac Pro (Early 2009) and it's the best. Just plug it into your USB port and open iChat or Skype and you're ready to go. I just bought another one for my mom....more info
- Very happy with this webcam
This webcam was extremely easy to set up. It is a true plug and play. Have had it for a month and have really enjoyed it. I have even used it to create small video's to send to our family....more info
- Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro fro MAC
The web cam works very well. A simple plugin of the USB cable and it's ready to go. The picture is very clear and the sound is good from what I have been told by the people I have used it with. All in all it is a great web cam.
I do have two small issues but they do not effect the use of the web cam. They are just a nuisance and I am not saying it is an issue with the web cam.
The first is that when I wake the computer from sleep mode it will not see the web cam. I was having to unplug and then plug back in the USB cable for the computer to see it. Then I plugged the web cam into my USB expansion device and I don't have that issue any more. I am assuming this issue was due to the computer shutting off the power to the built in USB port and the USB expansion device is powered continuously.
The second is that while using the web cam every so often the video shuts off for a couple of seconds and then comes back on. I have done a web search on this and it appears there are a lot of comments about this but no reasons for it yet....more info
- Question about the camera
I just got this camera to use with Skype, however is there any way you can use it for snapshots? I didn't really realize when purchasing it that it didn't include that feature....more info
- Video Cam
This video cam is very good. Easy to install. I was up and running in 10 minutes. Does everything it is advertised to do. Clear and precise image....more info
- Great cam
Easy to set up, excellent picture quality, easy to mount to any size screen and/or stand on it's own....more info
- Excellent product but expensive, equal quality cheaper option is...
Logitech quickcam pro 9000 is the same thing as vision pro for mac !!! and it is 30 USD cheaper !!!!! both are plug and play. they do not work with yahoo messenger (MAC OS X 10.4) but works with AIM/ichat....more info
- Excelent option for Mac users
Nice web cam to be used with Mac computers that don't have isight like old Macs and Mac Mini.
Good: Carl Zeiss lens; 2 megapixel; 100% mac compatible (ichat, skype, aim, ....)
Bad: no lens cover. You can forget that it is on and streaming. :-)...more info

- Great Web Cam for Mac
I bought this for my soon to be step-son that lives in Washington so he can communicate with us. He even played his guitar on it to show us. Sound, quality, etc were good for the price. We went through [...] which is a free site. I didn't like yahoo messenger....more info
- Works great!
I was very impressed with the "Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro for the Mac". Its auto focus capability and its sensitivity to low light conditions are great. The color looks good also and the microphone works well. No additional software was required. It is "plug and play". I use it for iChat video on both my Macs.
a. 1.3-yr old Mac Pro (2.66 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xenon procesor) using Mac OS X version 10.5.6.
b. 6-yr old Mac laptop (PowerBook G4 with 876 MHz processor) using system version 10.4.11. This old laptop has only USB 1.0 (i.e. does not have the much faster USB 2.0) but the camera frame rate is still very good and works better than the old firewire i-Bot camera I was using. ...more info
- Don't buy it if you use Windows on your Mac
This is a nice (and expensive) camera that works fine under Mac OS X. Installation is easy and it provides excellent image quality. But DO NOT buy this camera if you plan to use it under Windows on your Mac (on BootCamp, VMwareFusion or similar products). For some reason, Logitech does not provide drivers for the QuickCam Vision Pro for Windows and it only works under Mac OS. If you need a camera that works with Mac OS and Windows (for use with Messenger for instance), you will have to look for another option....more info
- DOESN'T WORK WITH NEW MACS
Don't buy this if you have a new Mac Mini (3/09 or higher) which is what I have. It looks great, and you would think that not needing drivers would be a good thing, but after staying on the phone with Apple for 2 hours they came to the conclusion that there's an incompatibility with the internal hardware on the newer Macs. The problem being when the Mac wakes up from "sleep" it doesn't recognize that the camera is connected, so you HAVE to pull it out of the port and reinsert e-v-e-r-y s-i-n-g-l-e t-i-m-e! Brutal. The ironic thing is he said if there were drivers that might fix the problem. Yay! So in trying to make my life easier I've made it harder and a little more in debt.......more info
- Logitech Webcam
I bought this for my husband who has a MacBook G4 (i.e., no camera). The camera is mounted on a 19" LCD monitor connected to his G4. The visual aspect works very well. The audio aspect is just okay, but we're not sure if this is a fault with the microphone on the camera or on his computer. Right now the audio is "clear" but echoes as if he's in a stadium talking through a microphone. Again, we're still playing with both microphone sources. Overall, this webcam definitely serves the purpose for which we needed it - so, we're happy with it. ...more info
- Simplicity is the key
This is plug & play as it was intended. Plugged the device in, Skype immediately recognized it, as did all my other mac applications. An absolute breeze to use. ...more info
- Works Great
Worked great out of the box with iChat, but can't use the camera's microphone or it messes up the video stream. iMac mic works great for chat, so not a big deal for me, but Logitech should look into the issue....more info
- Works great on my mac
Nothing else to say, but works great on three macs as advertised. I purchased 3 and am well satisfied....more info
- Meshed great with Mac Mini
Bought a Mac Mini early 09. This webcam work great with it. All I had to do was plug it in and use it. Simple....more info
- Logitech webcam-perfect
Although a little pricier than I'd wanted, the webcam works perfectly. Easy to set up, good quality video, works with Skype and with my iMac. No complaints....more info
