Creative's latest in a series, this time the case is new. This version of the Notebook Pro performs much better than the last two. Image is fair in low light, pretty good in bright light, and, for a change, the camera works well in very low light, however you have to go into the manual controls to get a decent image a dark room.
The mount is better, will mount on slightly thicker notebook screens than the previous version. The focus ring is much easer to move than the earlier ones.
This camera still doesn't come up to the more expensive Ultra for Notebooks but is a much needed improvement.
Creative has set up a special site for software updates and added features for their newer cameras at www.MyLiveCam.com
