Product Description


The HUE USB camera is a cost-effective alternative to a standard classroom document camera/visualiser. Easy to use and portable, this camera is popular with teachers and students throughout the world.

The camera is 'plug and play' on Windows PCs and Macs (see System Requirements) and compatible with most video conferencing, streaming and web-casting software i.e. Skype, Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk, iChat, FaceTime, uStream etc.

By connecting your HUE camera to your computer and a projector you can share students' work, books, experiments and pictures.

Use the camera for real time live video and for recording sound and video. The HUE USB camera produces excellent image quality even when projected onto a whiteboard.

The built-in microphone allows you to record your presentation or a student speaking about a topic. With its weighted base and flexible neck, HUE can also be used to magnify very small items such as insects, circuit boards and more to share them with the whole classroom.

THE CAMERA DESIGN --> 5 STARS

The HUE HD Webcam is modern and has enough "style" to even appease my graphic designer senses. The camera body's construction is sturdy and the gooseneck is rigid, so stays in place when flexed. The camera attaches to the base via a USB connector (convenient if you have a monitor or laptop with a USB port and don't want to use the base). The base is weighted and has a cloth bottom so it won't scratch your desk. The overall look and construction of the camera is 5 STARS.

THE SOFTWARE --> 4 STARS

After searching for a few months I decided to get this webcam because of its claims to be fully compatible with MAC OSX, which is true. First, I went to the company's website to check if there had been any updates to the software. **The software release on the website is version 1.3 and the CD that is provided says version 1.1.** I opted to download version 1.3 instead of installing from the CD. Installation was easy. The software has a bunch of video and compression options that are useful.

COMPATIBILITY --> 2 STARS **Must read for all Mac users**

I know that there isn't much info on the product because it is relatively new and most, if not all of the support info on their website refers to PC issues. So, I contacted their technical support because I wanted to know if it would work with iChat. Turns out the HUE HD Webcam is not supported by iChat. Here is the response that I got from their technical support team.

Hello,
iChat doesn't work with HUE HD Webcam, because the software was designed
to use Firewire Webcams. Hue HD WEBCAM have a USB interface like most
webcams you can find at stores.

I just lowered my rating because I'm having problems with the stand. The webcam still works great but whenever I use the stand, if I move the cam just a little bit, the stand loses it's USB connection. Since this cam is made to be moved, this is a real problem. I've had to forego using the stand because of this problem.

Nice webcam, the stand and the "bendable" wire is great for getting the camera in the right position. Works great for on-line meetings as well as sharing paper documents.

I have a Vista and an XP computer and the HUE works great on both! I expected the worst because I got mine at a huge discount, but I was surprised. The picture and sound quality are excellent and I love the ability to twist it in multiple directions. I have plugged 3 into my computer at a time with no problem to watch video of myself and others at the same time. It's also nice to be able to look over my shoulder while working as I aim one at the door behind me. I do some singing-songwriting and have used it like a mic to record song ideas and I'm amazed at the tone accuracy. I have a Shure Dynamic 588SB from professional singing years back and the Hue Webcam sounds much better than it ever did! While it may not be the modern choice for professional music, it certainly is great for many uses. My only problem was with the use - I had to be careful to reset the file-save name every time I wanted to record something or I would write over the last save and I had to check the audio to be sure it was turned on each time - it didn't stay on. It was easy to get familiar with it though.

When I buy something new I expect it to be NEW. The one I got had careless scratches where the previous short time owner struggled to put both USBs into the jacks properly. Really HUE! Shame on you for selling something as new that has finger grease all over the driver disk. It's as though the guy was eating a pepperoni pizza while fumbling around with the unit.
This is what is killing trust with online sales!
By the way HUE HD, if I wanted to buy a used one I could have saved $20 on a $50 item.

There's a chance that you will get an OLD version of this camera that DOES NOT WORK ON SNOW LEOPARD!

You need the UVC version. The one I received was probably a couple of years old.

Too bad. It is a cool device, and exactly fits the bill for what I need.

Additionally, the vendor had a gazillion positive reviews, yet doesn't have a return policy. I'm taking that up with Amazon.

Just glad I found out with a $70 camera, and not a computer.

I had previously seen this camera at a friends house and loved it. Then I purchased one as a gift for my niece and another for myself. Very reasonably priced. Great picture clarity. Easy to use. Definitely recommend this product. Note however that most stores don't carry it, easier to find on line and Amazon has the most selection and affordable pricing.

I bought this camera for my daughter to make home videos. Unfortunately, the USB wobbles in the stand which causes it to disconnect. Since the flexible stand is made to move, this is quite a problem. I did not find anything on the HUE website that addresses this issue.
