Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Mount

Mount:
"The first problem is a bump either of the surface or the camera mount itself causes the entire thing to fall over because the system is top-heavy (the case (cylinder) is now empty with the camera resting on top)."
_
"Unfortunately that does not help because the camera adheres to the mount using a magnet in the cover of the cylinder."
_
"My only real complaint is that this thing is hard to mount."
_
"It just works and the magnetic mount is a very nice touch as is the self storing canister"
_
"The black cylinder is the mount (also a protective case, a great feature, but...) that sits on a surface, as shown in the picture."
_
"I wish, though, they'd also included a screw mount on the bottom of the camera, because that would allow for even greater flexibility -- say if you wanted to mount this to a gorillapod mount and mount that to a lamp on the top of the ceiling."
_
"The camera can either mount directly, via a magnetized swivel ball on the bottom, to the top of its carrying case, or, for even greater flexibility you can remove the lid of the case and mount that to a tripod (or gorillapod) via a standard 1 4 mounting screw."

Network

Network:
"Tried a few other more expensive attempts at network transmission without a computer with no success."
_
"It'll automatically reconnect and start broadcasting again all on it's own if your wifi signal is a bit weak and it loses connection to the wifi network."
_
"While this is presumably the fault of the rejecting networks and not of the camera, Logitech clearly knows that its camera is essentially incompatible in the marketplace, yet does not warm prospective buyers and users."
_
"I also have a 5Ghz wireless N network and it was not seen so apparently the camera is incapable of 5 GHz operation."
_
"When I contacted logitech for support they assured me it was not a fault of the device but the network just wasnt fast enough."
_
"Once set up with a computer on a particular wireless network, the best part of these cameras is the ability to stream HD Live video (AND have it saved for further viewing and uploading), just by waiting for the green light and then press the button."
_
"So, for instance, I can use it just fine at home -- but in virtually every out-of-home location (all with excellent wi-fi networks, where my laptop and iphone are easily recognized and where large-file streaming is accomplished seamlessly) this camera is not permitted onto the network."
_
"Unlike some of the other reviewers, I didn't have any problems at all hooking it up with my wifi network, however your experiences may be different."

Quality

Quality:
"Unfortunately the video quality isn't as good as the in-built camera on my Macbook Pro, so I hardly ever use it."
_
"This webcam is very well built and amazing quality for a logitech wifi camera."
_
"Excellent very good quality HD"
_
"Also it would be nice if this streamed into YouTube live as well as Ustream but overall this product is of good quality and function"
_
"It works well and when connected to LTE could stream at the medium quality setting without dropping frames (I use low quality to not burn through my monthly data quota)."
_
"I haven't used this as much as I thought I would, but it is easy to use and I prefer the video quality to my Mac's Facetime HD built in camera."

Video

Video:
"Unfortunately the video quality isn't as good as the in-built camera on my Macbook Pro, so I hardly ever use it."
_
"Video rates or sizes cannot really be configured, the choices are pretty much just grainy video."
_
"I was trying for a long time to get my Micro 4 3s camera to act as a high-powered webcam, but was stymied by it only having HDMI-out, and not wanting to shell out close to $300 to get a decent video converter...Then I saw this cam, and was inspired."
_
"I haven't used this as much as I thought I would, but it is easy to use and I prefer the video quality to my Mac's Facetime HD built in camera."
_
"Good video quality."
_
"I used my iPad to set the camera up, but after that, the camera broadcast directly to UStream without the need for the iPad; nice video and audio."

Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi:
"Checking the support forums, I'm not the only one who wished that a direct wireless streaming option was available (this unit is basically useless for, say, a camping trip - you MUST have an intermediary wifi router between your desktop laptop iOS, a missed opportunity).Since I purchased this unit, I discovered a reasonably cheap alternative to streaming from my m43 camera, which is what I'll be shooting with most of the time..."
_
"It'll automatically reconnect and start broadcasting again all on it's own if your wifi signal is a bit weak and it loses connection to the wifi network."
_
"Even when I managed to get this webcam working before I updated the OS on my Mac, the WiFi connection was intermittent at best - wound up using my phone for a webcam."
_
"This webcam is very well built and amazing quality for a logitech wifi camera."
_
"Just got this and was able to quickly connect to the wifi thru both iphone and ipad (Broadcaster app)."
_
"need support for enterprise wifi.. but other than that it works good."
_
"A few bumps along the way:My AT&T Uverse had been supplying my wifi signal for the house adequately..."

Wireless

Wireless:
"Once set up with a computer on a particular wireless network, the best part of these cameras is the ability to stream HD Live video (AND have it saved for further viewing and uploading), just by waiting for the green light and then press the button."
_
"If anybody has any ideas of which way to go, and which mic to use (wireless preferred) please comment on this review."
_
"and its wireless ..very easy to use and set up."
_
"It's nice that it's wireless but I wouldn't think of it as a sport cam."
_
"Picture quality is very good and I didn't have any issues setting up the wireless connection or getting the camera through my router."
