Everything is going HD these days, it seems, and the latest gadget to take advantage of high-def imaging is Logitech's latest line of QuickCam Pro webcams.

The Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 and Logitech QuickCam Pro for notebooks video capture at 720p HD resolution at up to 30 frames per second.

Both models have Carl Zeiss Tessar lenses to make images exceedingly sharp, apparently. Each is also capable of taking up to two-megapixel still s and include specialist technology to help you sound just right on that video call.

The 9000 comes on a flexible universal base, which Logitech claim allows it to be positioned on nearly any monitor, while the QuickCam Pro for notebooks is has a spring-loaded clip for attaching to laptop lids - and LCD monitors of any kind, we expect.
