Has a Zoom Capability

The HP KQ245AA has a zoom capability, unlike most of the other comparable spec webcams that are a similar age to the KQ245AA which do not have a zoom capability.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a zoom capability and we think because of it's better review score, the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, and the Logitech TV Cam HD is also worth considering.

Has a Snapshot Button

The KQ245AA has a snapshot button. Most of the other webcams of a similar age and spec to the KQ245AA do not have a snapshot button.

We compared all the other webcams with a snapshot button to this webcam and we think the C250, and the C600 both from Logitech which has better reviews is also worth considering.
