The webcam’s fold-and-go design, coupled with autofocus capabilities and a 360-degree swivel rotation, expand the possibilities of what you can capture in HD video anytime, anywhere.

So you can better stay in touch with your friends and family, the Logitech HD Webcam C525 lets you make video calls in HD 720p on Logitech Vid™ HD, as well as video calls to Skype™, Windows Live™ Messenger, Yahoo!® Messenger, AOL® Instant Messenger (AIM®) and other popular instant messaging applications.

The Logitech HD Webcam C525 features built-in autofocus, ensuring your picture quality will always be razor-sharp – even in extreme close-ups – and a built-in mic that helps make sure background noise won’t spoil your video calls. With Logitech’s newest webcam, users can also capture software-enhanced 8-megapixel images, while built-in Logitech Fluid Crystal technology gives users smoother video, sharper pictures, richer color and clearer sound in real-world conditions.
