Greetings! I recently purchased a Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 for myself and a Logitech QuickCam Orbit AF for my mother. Everything I've read about each raves about the picture quality.
We both hooked up thru Skype and have made visual/auditory connection. The auditory is clear. But...the visual is pretty fuzzy. I am trying to figure if there is a problem w/computers or if there is a way that I can/should adjust the image size, e.g. (640 x 480) vs 2 mg as is found on the QuickCapture option, or what to do.
Note that w/the QuickCapture option I can see myself nice and clear but in the talk mode the live video we send and receive is fuzzy.
Any step-by-step ideas for a novice?

The advantage of having a logitech webcam is the support you have. I just launched my logitech toolbar and clicked on the lowest panel to see what help you have with your webcam in Skype - check this out
Yes indeed the LWS software only allows you for 30sec video, the problem with this webcam is that it needs to be power cycled, you can use software such as Webcam First, that will allow you all the function you wanted, but you will get error messages from the cam ramdomly, and you will need to power cycle the webcam to run it again.
That s a pity, because I love this pro 9000 the quality is just amazing but this issue a real problem when using the webcam for monitoring.
The other way around is to use a USB Powered hub that can be power cycled from a remote location, if you can t access the webcam for any reason.
You say you wanted to record 2/3 hours, should be fine, I use to have to reboot the webcam after some 6/7 hours.
Hope this help !
Thanks and have a nice day !
