6 Reasons For

Genius Has Good Webcam Reviews

Whilst Genius is one of the better rated webcam manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, Genius has poor ratings specifically for its medium megapixel count webcams.

Has a Built-In Microphone

The WideCam F100 has a built-in microphone. Most of the other similar spec webcams that have been around for a comparable time to the WideCam F100 also have a built-in microphone.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative webcams with a built-in microphone currently available including the Logitech C270 ($6.49) which has better reviews.

USB Interface

This webcam has a USB 2 interface, which is typical of many webcams of this age and type.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 Pixels Maximum Video Resolution

The WideCam F100 has a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's over two times the video resolution of a 1280 x 720 pixels webcam, which is the most common video resolution.

This webcam's video resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) is in fact the best video resolution amongst all comparable spec webcams that have been available for more than two years.

The worst video resolution amongst similar types of webcam is 640 x 480 pixels.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Full HD

Unlike most of the other medium megapixel count webcams that came out around the same time as the WideCam F100 which are not Full HD, the WideCam F100 is Full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other Full HD webcams currently available including the C270 ($6.49), or the C910 ($214.68) both from Logitech which has better reviews.

Read more Less Chart Edit

1080p Supported Video Mode

The WideCam F100 supports a 1080p supported video mode which is better than the 720p supported video mode supported by most webcams of this type and age.

A 1080p supported video mode is in fact the best supported supported video mode across all webcams of a similar age and type to the WideCam F100.

Across comparable types of webcam the worst supported supported video mode is 720p.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Motion Detector

The WideCam F100 does not have a motion detector, although this is within the context that most of the other medium megapixel count webcams that have been available for a similar time to the WideCam F100 also do not have a motion detector.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also have a motion detector including the Logitech C270 ($6.49).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The Genius WideCam F100 is not USB powered, although this is within the context that most of the other webcams of this age and spec are also not USB powered.

Webcams which are USB powered that might also be worth considering include the Logitech C270 ($6.49) which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Like most of the other webcams of this age and type, the Genius WideCam F100 does not feature face tracking.

We think you might also be interested in alternative webcams which also feature face tracking including the C270 ($6.49), the C310, or the C910 ($214.68) all from Logitech.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Mac Compatible

The WideCam F100 is not Mac compatible. Most of the other webcams that were released more than two years ago are also not Mac compatible.

Webcams which are Mac compatible that might be worth considering include the Logitech C910 ($214.68), or the Creative Labs inPerson Live Connect HD which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only 640 X 480 Still Image Resolution

The highest still image resolution of the Genius WideCam F100 is 640 x 480. That's 67% less still image resolution than the most frequently found still image resolution of 1280 x 720. Across all webcams of this age and spec the best still image resolution is 2560 x 1920 and the worst is 352 x 288.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Snapshot Button

Like most of the other webcams of a similar spec and age to the WideCam F100, the Genius WideCam F100 does not have a snapshot button.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a snapshot button to this webcam and we think the C270 ($6.49), or the C310 both from Logitech or the HP HD 3110 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Zoom Capability

Like most of the other webcams of this age and type, the WideCam F100 does not have a zoom capability.

It is worth considering alternative webcams which also have a zoom capability including the Logitech C270 ($6.49).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other similar spec webcams that have been available for around the same time as the WideCam F100, the WideCam F100 does not have a night mode.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a night mode and we think the Atlantis Land MagicView 350 Chat Pack is also worth considering.

2 Other reasons to consider the Genius WideCam F100

Released Over Four Years Ago

This webcam has been on the market for over four years.

Average Maximum Frame Rate

At 30 frames per second, the WideCam F100 has a relatively average maximum frame rate compared to most of the other webcams of a comparable type and age to the WideCam F100.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 30fps maximum frame rate webcams currently available including because of it's better review score, the Logitech C270 ($6.49), or the Creative Labs Live! Cam Connect HD ($10.00).
