    Great news, but 299$, ouch! (Not so much an ouch if the quality is great. I would buy it at that price)

    Wait a second, on the image it shows text that says 3K. If it is 3K resolution, they might be on to something very interesting.

    If it does what they say it will do, I'm in when the price drops. My C910 just died, and Logitech doesn't have any to replace it. The C920 is not as good of a camera, in my experience.
    Please direct all questions for me to the forum so that all can benefit.

    I'm surprised Logitech has not come up with anything at CES.

    Wanted to give you an update on the HoverCam 3PO, the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 webcam. We've been showing it at some conferences including ISE - Integrated Systems Europe - in Amsterdam last week. Yes, it's 3K resolution. Yes, the image looks great. Yes, the image is fast. About the price, yes, it's not cheap, but, I can't find anything with this performance and quality for under $1,000, so for prosummers and business users the price is looking attractive. Alas, it's not a PTZ camera - at least not yet. You can do the P & T by hand. My guess is we will include our ASR an adaptive sensor response zoom that will allow the user to zoom with the mouse and do some limited panning when zoomed in. The zoom quality is much better than traditional "digital zoom." We're looking for release in the May time frame. Stay tuned and feel free to contact me with any questions - and for you die-hard enthusiasts who were on this chat initially who want one of these but for whom price is an issue - please contact me directly and I'll make you an offer you can't refuse.
