Overall and Final Verdict

The F100 is a well-made product with the versatility to act as either a personal webcam or a video conferencing tool however many of the features intended for the latter really hamper the performance of the device on a personal level. The wide field of view the F100 provides is great in a setting where you have more than one person vying for screen presence but when used as a personal device much of the captured picture seems wasted. The stereo microphone is great in an environment when more than one person would be talking at the same time but the microphone is far too sensitive and picks up on many random sounds and noises that tend to not be important in a personal setting such as a Skype conversation.

F100 1

As a personal webcam, the F100 is a perfectly functional, mid-range video capture device with a decent software suite packaged in with it. More advanced users will likely require more robust software for what they need but for the novice the ARCSoft Webcam Companion software will be more than necessary. As a video conferencing tool for businesses or round table discussions, however, there aren’t many other options in this price range that have the amount of features the Widecam F100 can offer.
