Logitech Webcam Software
Logitech Webcam Software is a must-have application for any Logitech webcam owner who wants to benefit from all the features of the camera. It only supports the Logitech USB cameras and provides various functions for using your device to the maximum.
During the installation you need to plug in your camera in order to detect the type and automatically install the required drivers. You can only install the drivers but this prevents you from accessing the other features.
Screenshots and motion detection mode
The main menu allows you to access the Webcam Gallery and to capture images from your camera. It also provides access to the the Motion Detection feature and enables you to control the zoom level and the image pan during a video call.
Capture images and record videos
The main goal of the application is to help you configure the camera when you need to capture images or movies and is designed to satisfy both casual and experienced users.
While the first ones might settle on manually focusing and panning the image on a certain object, the latter can also adjust the brightness, white balance and anti-flickering method.
Manage the media files
The Gallery allows you to organize your captured items in order to quickly access a certain movie or image. You can also watch the multimedia files, send them by email or share them with your friends by using Facebook, YouTube or Twitter accounts.
If you want to use your camera for surveillance, the app comes with the motion detection feature which is able to automatically start the video recording. You can create a schedule for using this feature and fine tune the detection by adjusting the camera sensitivity.
Where it falls short
Although the interface is intuitive and easy to understand, the application includes an extensive documentation that fully describes each function. Unfortunately, it does not include the ability to add video effects or image frames which might be appreciated by some users.
Overall, the Logitech Webcam Software includes all the basic tools required to capture images and videos with your webcam. The sharing features recommend it for the users that are active on social network websites.
