Bleeding Edge TV 385: Logitech C910 HD Pro Webcam review FAIL

In this episode, we attempt to review the Logitech C910 HD Pro webcam. According to the package, it's a webcam that records in up to 1080p, and is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems. We start recording using the iSight camera built right in to the Apple Cinema Display, and then we decide to switch recording to the C910 to show the difference in video quality. We were running Mac OS X Lion, the day after it was released. Witness the failure.

We asked Logitech what was up, and all they could tell us was that a future software upgrade would be released, however, they couldn't give any sort of timeframe for when we should expect it.

World’s smallest camera is the size of a grain of salt

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Cameras, Design, Science

fraunhofer microcamera

Think your webcam is small? Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany have developed a camera that's no larger than a grain of salt. The "microcamera" (shown below next to a syringe) has the potential to re-invent medical cameras used to navigate surgeries as well as some aspects of cars and consumer electronics.

"At 1x1x1 millimeters, this camera is as small as coarsely ground grain of salt—the smallest camera that we are aware of," Stephan Voltz, CEO of image-sensor developer Awaiba, said in a Fraunhofer press release.

Part of the challenge for creating effective microcameras is the manufacturing process, which requires that image sensors be created in bulk on a single wafer, then separated and attached to individual lenses. Fraunhofer says it's found a way to mount lenses in bulk on top of the sensor wafer, simplifying—and cheapening—the process, at least for this microcamera.
