The Logitech ClickSmart 510 is an extraordinary and surprising versatile device that offers a great level of flexibility to everyone who needs a webcam and a digital camera. It’s clear that the digital camera mode of the ClickSmart 510 is reserved for an occasional use since the quality of the pictures is far from being near to a real “photo” quality but it is quite acceptable. Nonetheless it can be really helpful, not to say that the camera mode offers a bunch of settings you can play with. As usual with Logitech, the ClickSmart 510 features a stylish design and comes with outstanding and astonishing software that is simply the best of its class. If the price of the device seems a bit exorbitant for a web cam, it’s absolutely justified due its innovative nature and the fact it can takes photos or videos when it’s connected on the computer or when you use it on the road. The fact the camera has a SmartMedia card extension slot is a real plus over competitors.
