S5 and a potential webcam candidate


One of our readers apa7714 (thanks!) has shared a link to the Brando website that’s selling a nice USD22 webcam. 1.3MP and 25-30fps..not bad for that price!

I reckon this befits the tiny S5 although I can’t tell from the pics if the webcam clip holder fits the thickness of the S5.  I like the idea of the retractable cable cord.  If you check out my previous post on my current webcam, the overhanging cable looks unsightly!

      FWIW, I’ve used the Logitech QuickCam for notebooks. Since I don’t have the S5 yet (no comment) I also don’t know if the QuickCam’s clip fits the thickness of the S5. The USB cord is not retractable, so I use a velcro strip to tie the code around the cam when I’m not using it. Again, FWIW.
