Logitech today announced two new webcams that each incorporate hot Carl Zeiss lenses. The QuickCam Pro 9000 (above) is true 2-megapixel cam intended for desktop use, while the QuickCam Pro for Notebooks incorporates the same features into compact and portable unit that includes a tripod. Both of the units carry a price point of $99 and should be available soon.
I had the opportunity to look at these a couple of weeks ago and I can attest that they have the best image quality of any webcam I’ve seen. It’s game changing sort of stuff. The interesting part though, is that Logitech now has an exclusive arrangement with Zeiss Optics that allows them to be the sole producer of Zeiss-equipped webcams.
