Webcams fall into two groups, those junky kind that are built into many notebooks and just don’t work well and the aftermarket kind that can be had in up to HD resolutions. If HD resolution isn’t enough for you, you can get a webcam called the Roundshot Livecam D2 HD with a whopping 66 million pixels giving it two times the resolution of 1080p.
The camera isn’t aimed at those looking to do video chats or video blog though; it is aimed at businesses that want to showcase their location or products online. The manufacturer of the webcam, Seitz Phototechnik AG from Switzerland is aiming the product at hotels, resorts, and other business users.
The camera is round, can scan a 360-degree panorama, and has a 9-stop dynamic range for good colors and high sensitivity. The camera can be programmed to start shooting at any time of the day or night and if you have to have one, you can get it now. The thing isn’t cheap with a price starting at 6,494 euros including the camera, lens, waterproof case, and software.
