More about which logitech quickcam 4000 logitech quickcam
  1. Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.webcam (More info?)

    both of those camera's get a little use here
    video, color, frame rate, everything picture wise is basically identical.
    Slight mfg variance maybe, side by side 4000 looks a tad better - seperate
    them you'd not know which cam was on your screen.

    don't have much light where they're used, dark furniture/carpet/walls &
    frame rate seems sloooow but they fit well into the low light environment
    here.

    Face tracking & zoom on the 4000 is usable where that feature is pretty much
    unusable with Orbit in lower light. Orbit looses you it aims out into the
    upper left blue yonder and parks - you'll want fresh paint on the ceiling in
    the shadow area's.
    4000 face tracking when enabled also does auto zooms . like it or not... I'd
    rather not have the zoom with face tracking which may have been better
    called auto portrait setting,, but it seems to do it well.

    I have a Quickcam 4000 Pro and agree with all the comments. I have yet to
    find a way, however, to superimpose text on the picture using Logitech
    software.

    The picture quality is actually better on the 4000 than the Orbit, and
    if you want to use your webcam in low light, the 4000 is much better.

    The TrackerPod/Logitech Pro 4000 combination, we have been told, also
    has better PTZ than the Orbit because it provides a wider range of
    motion and also the movements are more precise.

    Sounds like the 4000 Pro is the better one?

    Yes, the 4000 is the better camera (especially in low light). The
    Orbit is not as good a camera but it has the pan and tilt. However,
    you can get a TrackerPod to pan/tilt the Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000.

    http://members.fortunecity.com/bumtracks/Orbit4000.jpg
    about 22kb
    2- Midnight pictures acquired in psp program from exact spot best I
    could. 4000 looks to have a tad wider lens.
    Orbit on the left - 4000 on the right
    Full Automatic ... single 9watt straight fluorescent tube / enclosed under
    eave for light.
    Looks like Orbit does slightly lower light, moved them around on the
    patio looking at diff light levels - on the orbit grain starts to show as
    light levels dropdown low.
    `Yea,,, I booted & rebooted laptop because I thought something was odd with
    color too.

    They both look awful close when not side by side here in the house to my
    eyeballs.

    might have to back off the pic file name and just go to the directory,
    not sure about fortune city mythology lately ,,, just a quick upload page
    various snap shots - I think.

    And like it so far (its built quality seems a lot better than that of
    Quickcam 4000 Pro, and its image/video quality is not bad, either:-)

    You know actually my problem with my Quickcam is getting it to talk
    to my ftp server correctly. So far I haven't had any problems with
    the pictures themselves - just getting my ftp server and my Quickcam
    software to work with one another. So far I'm halfway there....
