Default About to get a vostro A90 have a webcam question - 06-06-2010, 05:32 PM

So from reading the specs it looks like the vostro im about to buy has the .3 megapixel webcam. This is the same as the camera resolution of cellphones from the 1990s. Dont see why they would put such a low res cam on there but oh well. Id like to upgrade it to the 1.3 but I havent been able to find any replacement webcams on the net. Does anyone know where I can get one to upgrade?

You can buy it as a part from Dell. Some people say that the .3MP is better in low light.

The 0.3 webcam in my A90 works much better in low light than the 1.3 webcam in my 10V and another laptop. Even in a evenly lit indoor setting, the lower resolution cam seems to be more sensitive when compared to the higher resolution component. It really depends on how you're using the cam. For skype or online chatting, the 0.3 at 640x480 works great. I think it also has better fps than the higher res 1.3 (1280x1024).
