Talking webcam question - 05-24-2009, 09:03 PM

I just bought the mini 9.. and I'm getting it in about a week or so (soo excited!!). I really wanted a computer with a built in webcam. I got the mini 9 with the 0.3 webcam, and just wondering how that works for people.. most for video chat. I chose not upgrading the camera to the 1.3, and I'm just wondering if I made the right decision. A friend of mine said that the 0.3 should be fine, for vid chats and everything.

Anyone have the 0.3 on their's? and how do they like it?

I have the vostro A90, which comes with the .3 webcam. I haven't used it for chat purposes, but just played around with the video capture cam program in ubuntu. I think the video is perfectly suited for video chatting. It's nothing amazing, but it gets the job done. No idea on the microphone, which is the other half of the equation.

The .3 cam works great, better than 1.3 that I have in my asus. 0.3 is more light sensitive. Another thing is that Skype can't use greater than 640x480. The 1.3 is 1280x1024 which exceeds the dell screen resolution anyway.

I personally think the 0. cam on my Mini is horrible!
