The Spotter™ Webcam is the latest addition to the Cyber Snipa family of hi-tech, cutting edge products. Sporting a detachable 7 to 18 times zoom lens, the Webcam is ideal for a variety of uses, including personal security, chatting on the net, multimedia presentations and web broadcasts such as SKYPE. Mounted on a sturdy adjustable tripod, the Spotter™ Webcam can be placed anywhere in the room for accurate and stable broadcasting.
PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
One unmistakable trend I've noticed after reviewing Cyber Snipa's products is the packaging. It's never boring, and compared to the packaging of most PC peripherals actually quite cool. In typical Snipa fashion, the Spotter Webcam's box art sports the futuristic Halo-esque soldier and crosshair graphic. I'm not sure what to think about the peculiar spelling of “lense” though.
The back of the box explains the features of the camera. Specs, system requirements, and box contents are listed on the side of the box. System requirements are pretty darn low - 300Mhz CPU, 32MB DRAM, 10MB hard disk space, 16-bit true color display card, sound card, and a USB port.
For around $50USD you get the USB camera, zoom lens, tripod, software CD, manual, carrying pouch, and wrist strap. Inside the carrying pouch is a small yellow cloth for cleaning the lens.
