Hercules Dualpix HD720p for Notebooks
by Mark R
Aww, Hercules! Hercules! Yes, the company has given us this Dualpix HD 720p webcam for notebooks. So if you are an owner of an laptop that doesn’t have an integrated webcam, this might be your thing.
According to the company site, this is the first 720p high definition (1280 x 800 pixels) webcam fro the PC, and it comes with a wide-angle autofocus lens. It can shoot at up to 30 frames per second, with a photo resolution of 5 Megapixels.
I found that it has a wide viewing angle, which means it can allow the user to be seen from head to toe. That is different from other webcams that can get a little too close to the face. It also has a terrific built-in microphone.
The Dualpix is probably named for the two rotation axes that can work on the side or on top of the laptop’s screen. The image an be adjusted automatically just by twisting it ninety degrees.
In addition to this feature, the Dualpix has a lot of software like Hercules Webcam Station Evolution for photo/video capture, for file conversion to iPod, PSP, or just YouTube.
You should be able to purchase the Hercules Dualpix HD720 at places like Amazon for a price of about $39.99. You can get more information about it here.
