    I haven't used this beyond a day and I normally wait awhile to write a review but I wanted to get this up here now since there seems to be some confusion about this working with Mac Computers. This camera works without the driver automatically within the apps of Skype and Facetime if you select the C525 cam and mic in the Preferences of those programs. But what you really want to do is go online and download a driver since with it the quality isn't that good as most of that is managed by the driver. Even though the C525 doesn't have a driver download on it's product page, the drivers for Logitech's webcams are interchangeable so you can go to [...] then click on Webcams, then click on the model HD Webcam C615, select your Mac OS operating system and download the driver.

    Once it downloads you just double click it open, install, and double click the App Logitech Icon and you will see the light come on the camera. You can record from the software that will display once this app is open then import it into iMovie and edit as usual. Unfortunately you can't select this camera for recording directly with iMovie but I don't mind the extra step. I believe if you were using this camera with a PC you would have a lot more options to use within the logitech software such as uploading directly to YouTube and other recording adjustments so I hope that logitech will be updating the Mac software soon but with the limits to Mac options at this price point this camera is worth it.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    Length: 5:16 Mins
    The logitech HD webcam c525 is a great quality webcam at a very affordable price. I have enjoyed using it, learning the different features, and playing around with options. The webcam is very easy to use, plug it in, hang the camera on your Monitor and have fun! Highly recommended.

    *edited to add, I've been having a lot of fun with my webcam, making videos and spamming friends and family:) The controls are easy to use and adjust. We actually did send my mom the other camera, and my son walked her through it. I was right, it was so easy even she could use it! We are now on Skype and the quality for what we want, being able to talk "face to face" is great.

    Any out of focus issues are mine, later video shot with the webcam are much better but I wanted to do my first impression video, warts and all, to give a good sample of someone totally non-tech using and enjoying the webcam.

    After borrowing a friends Logitech C510, I decided to buy the C525 since it came with the auto-focus feature. However, I was extremely disappointed upon finding that when not using the auto-focus feature, the C525 has much worse image quality than the C510, i.e. the image appears fuzzy and out of focus. 'Focusing' in simply makes the image even fuzzier. Since I don't plan on using the auto-focus feature much anyway, I'd just as soon buy the C510. Logitech made this model with more features but with worse quality than the C510 predecessor.

    I just got it today. Installation was breeze.
    But it could not update by itself even after selecting the option (simply told my software was up to date). I had to manually update and quickly click the 'install when ready' kind of button before download was complete (otherwise it was downloading a lot and without installing just told again that the software was up to date).
    It looks like the users have been asking for image flip option in the software for years and the company does not seem to be interested. From what I read in their support forum they seem to think it is not done (I am currently using a software in work place that can do any flips of live feed under same XP, but not 90 degree rotation which some users asked for). Also, it seems that this option was there in some of their older sofware and not there anymore.
    I find it very inconvenient to remove and attach/adjust each time I close the laptop. I cannot attach it to the top of my computer table (just above the screen) because of the software problem. I attached upside at the top and then only found this problem (I did not think it is a big deal to flip). I will have to do some carptenter work to keep it above (hi-tech forces us not to forget low tech!).
    I took some high resolution images and they were not good (the medium resolution photos were clean and the high resolution photos were dirty with too many spots all over)! So, I am going to stick with VGA quality.
    I have not yet used videochat, though skype recognized and tested fine.
    *****
    ADDITION: I just found that ManyCam (a free software) can rotate/flip live stream, including 90 degrees left or right! I think I don't need the LogiTech software as long as the ManyCam is there (then I will need the carpentry and LogiTech!).

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    Length: 0:42 Mins
    A couple of the Vine members already did good video reviews for this webcam so I don't see any point in doing yet another video review saying the same "only good" things. With that said I'll be talking about what I've used it for and my own experiences with it.

    First I tested this webcam using Skype...making a video call to an iPhone 4 running the Skype mobile app. My desktop PC is a Core 2 Duo 2.5GHz + 4GB RAM + WinXP. This is the computer I used to initiate a Skype video call to an iPhone 4. The iPhone was connected to the internet via WiFi while the PC was connected via ethernet. Both were sharing a DSL with 2.5Mbps download/0.5Mbps upload of total bandwidth.

    The video call worked very well similar to Apple's FaceTime. Audio and video quality was pretty good considering the available shared bandwidth. The webcam has good light sensitivity only needing a single ceiling light to get very good exposure. Color rendition was also pretty good.

    As far as full quality video capture, I was a little disappointed with the framerate. I estimate it's around 20 frames per second but it's using some kind of frame interpolation to try and smooth out the transition between frames as evidenced by the motion blur. What this means is if you want "true" 30 frames per sec 720P resolution video (without motion blur), you'll have to use some other more capable device like a digital camera that can also shoot video.

    Even at "lossless" video quality settings the video still ended up looking softer than a 720P recording from my digital camera, however color rendering was surprisingly good for a "webcam". The slightly soft video is expected given that my digital camera has a larger and better lense.
