While a relatively simple device, web-cameras are still an area on Linux that can be problematic when it comes to compatibility and the device functioning properly. The level of Linux support for USB web-cameras has improved quite a bit in recent years, and for many devices it is now a plug-and-play experience, but that is not the case for all devices. In this article we are taking a brief look at the Logitech QuickCam Communicate Deluxe. The QuickCam Communicate Deluxe has a 1.3 mega-pixel sensor with the capabilities to capture video up to a resolution of 1280 x 1024 at 30 frames per second.

Features:

- 1.3 mega-pixel sensor with RightLight 2 Technology
- Built-in microphone with RightSound Technology
- Video capture up to 1280 x 1024 (HD quality)
- Frame-rate up to 30 frames per second
- Still image capture at 5 mega-pixels (with software enhancements)
- USB 2.0 certified
- Manual focus, glass lens

The Logitech QuickCam Communicate Deluxe package included the 1.3 mega-pixel USB web-camera itself with a flexible clip that comes pre-attach, a QuickCam software CD, and a quick start guide. The USB cable length for the web-camera is 6-feet and the flexible clip makes it easy for this monitor to rest atop an LCD monitor or laptop screen. Logitech backs this product with a two-year limited warranty. The QuickCam software CD just includes various software packages for Microsoft Windows operating systems and is of no use to a Linux user.
