i've been looking online ALL DAY for a webcam that meets my requirements, im sure they do exist but i sure as heck cant find one, so i thought i'd post exactly what im looking for, as a suggestion for the start of a new webcam line, that i bet would be extremly popular.
Firtsly, Logitech, your webcams are stuck in the stone age along with all other major manufacturors. sure you may have HD now... mic's built in, software enhanced quality and lighting controlls... but there is one aspect that no one i've seen has taken into consideration. You guys touched on this concept with the logitech orbit cam line, but it looks like it was given up on pretty fast... most likly because you used facial recognition instead of a simple remote controll. i know i HATE having to be right ontop of my camera constantly to ajust tilt, pan, zoom, etc, as do 90% of the people i know that use webcams. it is encreadibly frustrating if yo're trying to record or stream something on the other side of the room and have to keep walking away from what you're doing to ajust the camera. as i said, you touched on this concept with the orbit line... but facial recognition? seriously? do you realize that MOST people that use a webcam, almost never aim them at their face?
What exactly am i looking for? An HD webcam.... prefferably 1080P (but i would settle for 720P). one that comes with a REMOTE CONTROLL that allows you to ajust tilt, pan, zoom, etc from the remote without having to physically touch the cam. you guys got way too fancy with the facial recognition stuff in the orbit line, pretty sure the reason most stores stopped selling it, is because customers complained about it auto ajusting to places they didnt want. use the same system but give the USER the controll, not a program running on a computer that has no idea what it's looking at and just focuses on anything that resembles a face.
