Review

Digital video cameras for image capture, video capture and video conferencing are very mainstream nowadays and their uses are much clearer, if still varied. They are used for quick still image capture, webcams, low-quality video capture and video conferencing. The bottom line is that cameras need to be good quality, well made, have a good, sharp image and they need to be cheap.

Intel's digital video cameras have always missed on one of these critical points -- until now. The Intel PC Camera Pro Pak is a dynamite camera with good resolution, good speed, an incredible software bundle and a good price. Part of the reason is that this is now a USB camera and it is amazingly easy to install and quick to learn. The camera has lots of extra features like a sliding lens cover; a composite video connection on the camera for capture from a VCR or other video device; a tripod mount and an optional adapter for clipping the camera to a notebook.

Resolution for video is up to 640 by 480 with a real frame rate of 5 frames per second and good image quality. Frame rates at lower resolutions, particularly the popular video conferencing resolution of 160 by 120 are at close to 30 frames per second. Still image capture is also up to 640 by 480. You get Intel Video Phone software, email postcards, a snapshot utility, a scene recorder, a gallery application and utilities for taking automatic snapshots every few seconds for webcams or security; a movie builder and a home page builder. Plus some fun interactive games that make it easy to get used to the camera.

Intel includes features like the ability to send Intel video phone software to friends so they can connect with you and you can use any kind of network or dial up connection for the video phone. Again, quality and frame rates were good in practice, even over a V.90 phone line (where they are low, but good enough to be useful).

The camera can focus exceptionally close - as near as one inch and a simple focus wheel is on top of the camera along with a pushbutton for taking instant snapshots.

Overall this is an excellent, easy-to-use camera that is convenient for video conferencing, use as a webcam and good for instant snapshots. While it isn't the best camera available for snapshots, or for overall video quality, it is a great value and replaces the Logitech QuickCam Pro on our WinList. The Vicam remains the camera of choice for top-of-the-line quality at $299. -- From Winmag®

Just a note - the software is not compatible with NT, only Win '95b or Win '98. Otherwise, picture quality is great, waiting for another family member to install to test sound.

I compared this camera with the Creative Labs Web Cam 3. Intel Pc Camera shows a better and a superior image quality. The software is A+ plus, you can create videos, take photos or send cards through the internet. Dont forget the video conference capabilities (the package include two licences of Intel video phone software). But before you install this camera in your PC, go to tech customer support site to get the correct software ID number, (this is incorrectly labeled in the package). A special note; many friends are reporting configuration problems with pcs equiped with ATIs video cards or ATIs video software.

Verified Purchase
I bought this camera to add some fun to my computer. The installation was easy, I just plugged it into an open USB port put in the CD and within 10 minutes I was using the camera. The software is great. There are some games that come with it that allow you to play basketball using the camera. Although the games are a bit cheesy, it's still a great idea. I used the software to film myself saying hi to my mom and I e-mailed it to her. She loved it. She now has it on her desktop and plays it all the time. There is also a internet phone call option which is more difficult because it requires the person you want to call to have the same software. But Intel was thinking and they included an extra CD to give to a friend. I can take great snapshots with the camera too. With the correct light, the pictures are almost as good as any digital camera. The package came with a chance to get extra free software that included a program that took a picture at certain time intervals or when it sensed motion (a lot of fun to spy on people while you're away). Also it included basic webpage building software, great for beginners. The last program allowed me to create longer movies out of pictures, movies and wavs that I had previously made. I sent the free software offer in and within a week and a half I got it (UPS!). Great product. Great price. I saw it advertised at Best Buy for more than $10 more.

I did a lot of research and I saw many positive recommmendations for this camera.
The price is very reasonable and it is very easy to install. Just load the software, reboot and plug in your USB Camera and you are ready to go. It comes with software to take snapshots and make digital videos (but you need a separate microphone because it doesn't come with one). I've made several video clips of my kids and emailed them to family. I'm not sure what the minimum PC requirements are. I have a 400 mhz Pentium II with 128 mb of ram.
The resolution isn't the greatest but I like using it with MSN Messenger and Microsoft NetMeeting. If your friends and family have MSN Messenger, you are two mouse clicks away from having a video call over your PC. I bought this for other family members and we can do a 2 way video call from across the country. The better the connection you have, the better the video stream. I have used in on Cable Modem and a 56K connection. My friends also want to buy one.
This camera is a lot of fun.

Picture quality is very good. But I have had compatibility problems with my new HP 8580C computer (purchased 8-99). When you go into program for the 1st time the computer freezes up after entering the configuration wizard, user info screen. Intel told me to download Rip2141 from Riptide. I did that and got past the config. wizard, but lost the ability to play any midi file. I was the told to download har105 and was able then to play midi files, but could not get past the video size test in the configuration wizard. Intel worked with me and also HP worked with me but each ended up blaming the other and my Intel program still doesn't work. Camera works with MS Net Meeting though.

i use this camera on win98 exclusively. you can't install it on an NT or win2000 machine (the software won't install, nor will the updated drivers); on win98, very easy to get working. you can use it with any popular videoconferencing program that you like. the included software is nice to organize photo albums or make video movies. you can also use software to create web pages, and even a web cam (download the new software from intel.com); the focus wheel is on top of the camera, which makes focusing hard if you aren't right next to it....the lens cover is nice if you want to close it and protect the lens. the base is pretty stable, and comes with a bit of sticky tape so you can firmly mount it. if you don't use the sticky tape, i recommend velcro for easy mobility to different angles, otherwise the weight of the usb cable will cause it to tip a bit if it's not firmly seated. there are two lense settings for indoor and outdoor, but i've never used the outdoor option. (it's really a setting for light balance); update your drivers from intel.com and you get the pan and zoom features, as well as fixes to some of the hue and colour balance options.
