iSight vs Live! Cam Optia
iSight vs Live! Cam Optia - Originally uploaded on flickr by stevegarfield.
More testing with the Live! Cam Optia Creative sent me. This is a picture of the difference between the iSight webcam and the Live! Cam Optia. Pretty amazing.
It's the only thing I could get to work this morning since Windows VISTA is unable to install the driver for the camera on my HP Pavilion laptop that Microsoft sent over for evaluation.
I've contacted Creative with all the error messages I've been getting. I couldn't get the camera to be recognized by the laptop.
Windows VISTA can't find the driver even though I put the CD in the computer.
I'd really like to try it on UStream.TV, Operator11, blog.tv and Justin.tv on the PC.
Update to the update:
The webcam can work on Mac OS 10.4.9 and above. Previous version of Mac OS do not support UVC properly. However, Creative does not officially claim support for Mac. It has been tested to work well with iChat.
I'm continuing to test to see if I can get the webcam to work on a Mac. Stay tuned.
