Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 test and footage

Always bugs me when companies provide limited support for Mac OS. Logitech is such a company with limited support for the Mac or none at all. As a service to internet, because it's not easy to find whether the Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 will work on the Mac my quick observations:
- Supported in Mac OS X 10.5.7 without any drivers.
- No support for autofocus.
- Native resolution of 640 x 480 can be accessed via Quicktime player (Movie recording) but slow with 7fps record speed.
- I tested 7 seconds at 640 x 480 and got a 135MB file.
- AE / Auto Exposure is really good.
- Supported in iChat. Video and audio.
So to round up. Camera works with Mac OS X, but not fully supported or fast.
This movie was recorded with Quicktime player (Good setting of 320 x 240 pixels). The clipping comes from ah-ing too close to the microphone.
FWIW: This camera is officially not supported for Mac OS X or Linux by Logitech. So don't blame me.. This camera is only to be used for off-laptop purposes or custom purposes where a built-in iSight from Apple won't suffice. It's just difficult to find a nice external webcam for Mac OS X nowadays with the prominence of Apple's iSight in most of their mobile products. When you need a webcam for your MacPro or desktop you're dependent of third party products, of which there aren't many for Mac OS X.
