Sharp Viewcam VN-EZ1S: Great gadget


The camera is a great little toy, and if you love gadgets - this is perfect for you. The images are clear enough on the stills, but video does lack decent image resolution, but you can trade this off against files size, and gain some improvement....

Small, flexible, light, easy to use

eats batteries, balancing image quality against file size

Product Specifications

Introducing Sharp's new Internet Viewcam, the VN-EZ1H. It's the world's first digital motion picture and sound camera designed specifically for the Internet. With it, you can capture all the sights and sounds around you and easily transfer them to your PC. From there, they are yours to share with the world through Web pages, e-mail, Internet broadcasting, corporate Intranet, or playback on your PC. The VN-EZ1H is the first digital video recorder to incorporate the MPEG-4 moving picture compression standard. This means your videos take up much less space on your PC and can be sent that much faster. Because the Internet Viewcam uses Microsoft's Advanced Streaming Format (ASF), your recordings can be viewed and heard at virtually the same time they're being downloaded. All of this by a camera literally the size of a bar of soap. Magic? No. Just another Sharp innovation!
