The Labtec Notebook Webcam is a compact, lightweight multimedia video camera that is easy to take with you when you travel. It even comes with its own carrying pouch, so you dont have to worry...

Reasonably good image quality, works with most notebook displays as well as many desktop LCD displays, includes a carrying pouch, supports both USB 2.0 and 1.1
No face-tracking feature, works best in a brightly lit room at a reasonably close distance, lacks a real software bundle
