CONCLUSIONS AND AFTERTHOUGHTS
For $20, the Scout webcam is worth the purchase. It takes good still shots, decent video, and has a built in microphone. Its small size makes it ultra portable and I would have liked to see Cyber Snipa include a carrying case. It stays put when clipped onto an LCD monitor but can also stand on its own and be moved around with a five foot cord to work with. On the downside, the included software isn't the best and the onboard lights are pretty much useless, but don't let that discourage you from giving the Scout a closer look. For basic webcam functions it works great.
- Good image quality
- Small size, portable
- Built in mic
- Onboard lights are not bright enough
- Software leaves a lot to be desired
