Ezonics EZPhone Cam
by Rick Smith (November 27, 2000)


Want to video chat with a friend? Don’t like those dull rectangular video cams? Want something cooler and trendier? Ezonics has the solution - their new EZPhone Cam. It’s a USB camera, mounted in a slick chassis that looks like a wildly colored cell phone.

After installation, all it takes is one push of the “One Touch Call Button” and your buddy list is launched. When you see that your friend is online, simply double click and you’re calling them. If they have an EZPhone Cam, it “rings” and the antenna flashes, to let them know that you are calling. They simply press their “One Touch Call Button” - and Voila! - You’re connected!

The EZPhone Cam is compatible with Microsoft Netmeeting and other major video conferencing programs. With the included software, you can E-mail a full motion video, complete with audio, as well. You can even take still pictures, with just a push of a single button. Ezonics even includes software to helps you make cards and calendars with these pictures. Retails for about $120.

The EZPhone Cam also:

  • uses a 320,000 pixel CMOS sensor capable of 24 bit color

  • has five different resolutions ranging from 160x120 to 640x480

  • has manual focus from 10 cm to infinity

  • includes a 2 meter cable

  • has shutter speed, video modes, brightness and contrast which are software controlled

  • has TWAIN compatibility for still images

  • supports Windows 98, ME, 2000 (this is a USB device)

  • includes 8 software titles including Ulead iPhoto Express 3.0, Ezonics EZSuite and Live Express Snapshot.
