There are quite a lot of people around who love devices which sport a very cute and funny design, and youngsters are the biggest group to be included in such a category. And since where's demand, there must be a source of supply, the Brando company offers, via its webstore, usb.brando.com.hk, a very attractive web-cam, shaped like a...lion.
Well, not really, but kind of. Besides looking so cold inside its steel casing, the web cam comes packed with a microphone, to allow the user enjoy the most when chatting with the loved ones. The best part is the camera is so versatile it would fit any type of bag. As for its capabilities, the web cam features a lens rotation system for adjusting the image quality. Not to mention the precise still image capture it can perform.
Since most users employ webcams at night, the manufacturers have packed the device with a LED light adjusting switch, which makes the face noticeable in dim light conditions. The size matters when buying such a device, mostly because it proves to be quite useful when traveling. The USB Lion web cam is great in size also, measuring only 47 x 25 x 15mm and weighing only 73 grams.
Other important technical details in the specification list are the CMOS sensor, the 1280 x 960 VGA resolution and the frame rate, of up to 30fps at 320 x 240, up to 15fps at 640 x 480, with a focus range of 20 mm to infinity adjustable and a signal to noise ratio of >55 dB.
There is also a manual focus, an auto white balance and an auto electronic exposure option. As for the pricing and availability details, the device can be purchased for a price tag around 27 bucks a pop, from Brando webstore, where else.
