Color QuickCam plugs into a Macintosh serial port and requires no hardware, according to Connectix officials. Installation takes less than five minutes, after which color images can be taken at 640 by 480 pixels in 24-bit color. Color QuickCam features include a manually adjustable focus lens, Auto-Capture for live Web images, and a self-timer mode.
Color QuickCam is available for $199. A Windows version is in beta testing and is expected to be available in May with the same pricing and features.
