PRODUCT PICTORAL AND WALKTHROUGH
As always, Logitech provides a spiffy POS package. The Fusion is prominently displayed in a clear, plastic box. All the major features are listed, with the 1.3 megapixel spec listed in bold print.
Whoa. 1.3 megapixels? While certainly not astonishing in the digital camera world, for a webcam it's pretty darn spectacular.
Also listed is the RightLight feature, along with a short blurb that alludes to the built-in mic.
Color me intrigued. Let's open the box.
For a suggested retail of $99 USD, here's what you get.
Inside, you'll find the Fusion, a couple of instruction manuals, and a behind-the-head style headset. Also included is the CD which contains the drivers and the suite of software designed to work with the Fusion.
On the webcam side, the Fusion is graced with several nice features. The first is the new, flexible mount. The Fusion can sit neatly on a desk, on top of a CRT monitor, or clamp securely to an LCD display. It also provides a handy hand-hold for taking random shots around your immediate area.
The webcam itself is wider than other models, due to the built-in mic, but it's also shorter in height and shallower in depth than many others. It looks elegant on top of a desktop LCD, without being too noticeable, and is a decent size to carry with you for laptop usage. The brushed chrome surrounding the lens and covering the mic lends a touch of class.
