Are you calling Bluntman, Buxton and myself clueless? Keep in mind Aaron that I personally don’t use a quickcam pro 4000, instead, I use a mini dv cam, so I didn’t know it came with a frame capture studio.

Cheers,

I have a basic question to ask.

Is the Logitech Quickcam pro 4000 any good?

And, does any one have any pics taken with the Logitech Quickcam pro 4000 so I can get an idea of how good it is?

actually i just noticed on a review that it can do video 640×320 resolution but that animation is in 320×280. Is that you editing it to get better quality? or someone reviewing it wrong?

I shot and edited it on 640, but I compressed it down to 320 for release.

The Logitech QC 4000 will do 640×480 resolution.

Just for full disclosure, I want to add that the Logitech 4000 achieves 640 x 480 through software/pixel interpolation. It isn’t true 640 x 480, but more of a digital zoom. Still, it looks pretty good! :)

*** Edit ***
Ah.. I stand corrected. Thanks, richardFrost. I guess that’s why “megapixel” and 640 x 480 are two different options on the resolution settings. I never noticed a difference in size between these 2 so I assumed they were one and the same… I could have done the math I guess… :P

You are wrong stoneSkipper. The camera has native 640 x 480 resolution. It’s the 1280 x 960 stills which are achieved througn interpolation.

through software interpolation the QC will take still images up to 1280 x 960 pixels

But you dont get to use the software interpolation through your capture program, so the 640×480 is ur limit for still images.

For a web animation, you dont want to do anything bigger than 640×480 IMO.

The video capture on the QC is 640×480 through the software interploation, but in stop-mo it’s still images not video.

EDIT: whatever Richard. /me should type faster.

Supposing you mean the DV3000 which you mentioned in another thread, I’d go for the QC4000 if stop-motion animation is your aim. While the Mustek one has more pixels (1600×1200 without interpolation), the QuickCam Pro 4000 has a CCD chip, which is way superior to the CMOS chip of the Mustek. Read our Camera article in the resources section for more information on that.

k, i did mean the dv4000 as the specks seem similar but the dv4000 costs a lot more than the logitech
