Say goodbye to those ol’ big eyeball-like plastic-encased webcams. As we can see from the evolutionary path of most gadgets, everything is heading towards being smaller and sleeker. Mustek’s got a new webcam coming out called the SI302A that is very small and very stylish in an aluminum casing that can clip to the top of your LCD monitor or sit on a flat surface.
The SI302A boasts an advanced ¼-inch CMOS sensor and an all-glass, auto focus lens that delivers awesomely clear videos. Natural 30fps video is achieved compression-free via the USB 2.0 interface and its 1280×1024 resolution (1.3 megapixels) is twice that of typical webcams. The SI302A also features a built-in condenser microphone for convenient video and audio chatting.
The webcam is expected to ship in March 2007, but the MSRP price has not yet been finalized.
