Webcams are interesting things, and up until recently they really haven’t been that good. High definition has finally caught up to them and they can now offer a great quality picture at a relatively low price. The new HD webcam from Genius does 720p and can capture still pictures with an 8mp sensor and it has an MSRP of $59.95. Not sure what that $60 buys you though, we’ll only know if we get some reviews of it…

Genius (www.geniusnetusa.com), a brand division of KYE Systems Corp., today announced a new addition to the company’s extensive line of webcams, the eFace 2025 High Definition 2.0M pixel Webcam. Genius’ new webcam is foldable, easily transportable and comes bundled with CrazyTalk Cam Suite Pro Software.

The eFace 2025 Webcam features 720P HD video and takes still image captures at up to 8.0 MegaPixels. The eFace 2025 Webcam has a premium multi-layer adjustable lens that allows the user to manually control focus without any blur. Easily foldable, the eFace 2025 also has a built on universal clip to attach to a notebook, LCD monitor or standalone base. The new webcam from Genius comes bundled with CrazyTalk Cam Suite Pro software that includes features such as: Image and Video Capture with a one-click YouTube upload button, Avatar Live where users become their chosen avatar that can change facial expressions and voices, Media Desktop Share so users can share video clips, photos and live desktop activity without delay, and Monitor mode where the webcam is switched into security mode with motion detection.
