Hello folks!

I have one Logitech Pro Webcam C910 and one Logitech HD Webcam C510 to giveaway.

The Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910 (pictured) offers high definition 720p video calling, full HD 1080p video recording, as well as Logitech Fluid Crystal technology, giving you crystal-clear images with rich, true-to-life colours. The C510 complements the HD range, also with high definitions 720p video calling capabilities.

You can find out more in the  Logitech New Zealand Facebook page.

This would make a great prize for those who want to keep in touch with their loved ones after Valentines Day.

The competition runs from now until the 18th February 12pm, when I will lock this thread and draw two winners. The first one will receive the Logitech Pro Webcam C910 and the second winner will receive the Logitech HD Webcam C510.

You have two ways to enter this competition:

1.You can reply once to this thread with some more information about what you have now (if anything) and what you want to do with your new Logitech HD camera. Anything, from "placing a video call to my parents" to "create the best YouTube video ever". Make it entertaining. Just a "Me too!" is not enough. A photo entry will add a bonus point!

2.Use the Retweet button to send a tweet about this competition. You can enter once a day only and each tweet until the closing of the competition is an extra chance to win. Only tweets sent from the Retweet button are valid entries.

Somethings you must know: users who have been previously banned are not entitled to enter this competition. No purchase is necessary and it's only valid for New Zealand residents and will only be delivered to New Zealand addresses. The Logitech webcams are brand new unit and will be sent directly from Logitech PR after we inform them the winners' details. Retweet button entries are only valid if you have a Geekzone account created before the end of this competition.

Currently using Microsoft and Logitech webcams.

Would probably mainly use for Skyping - many relatives around NZ and the world and great to video call with good quality images.

I desperately need a high def webcam.  You see, a week ago, I broke the only mirror in my house.  I've nothing that reflects an image at home at all now.  And you know about breaking mirrors - yet another 7 years of bad luck.

So rather than tempt fate yet again and purchase yet another mirror, I need a web cam so I can see to comb my hair, pluck my ears and squeeze my zits before my hot date on sunday night (the over 50's dance down at the local RSA......'s just down the road from you Mauricio - I might see you there....).  

And you all *must* know how difficult it is to pluck your ears with a mirror.  You can either reflect the cavern that is your ear canal, or see in, not both, not simultaneously.  Lets face it, mirrors don't always cut the mustard when it comes to personal grooming.

And it needs to be high def, because theres well.....lots and lots of .... things to be attended to.

But of course, with the seven years of purgatory I've just got myself into, I'm not holding out much hope here.

Yours hopefully not in vain,

Replacing my current webcam purchased in 2001 (a logitech - still going strong), and being able to use it in motion sesnor mode to try and figure out which of the neighbours cats are sneaking into the house in the middle of the night, and harassing our cats!

Hmmm... the only webcam we have is an old VGA one which I got free with a magazine subscription.

It's so bad that all I use it for is the led lights, so I can check what's happened to the cabling behind the stereo/tv. It's currently hanging off our Crunchbang Linux #! fileserver/media PC (which runs well, despite having only 1GB of RAM and a Pentium 4 CPU, oh and 1.5 TB of storage, but I digress...). Smile

So, yeah, I'd use it for Skype, Cheesy webcam shots, with a big screen!

This would be perfect for an Internet "show" that I have come up with and would love to start filming.

Nothing huge basically a small Internet news show about tech/movies/news/boobs.

This would be a perfect step forward for me :).

I only have a crappy built-in webcam on my laptop.

I'd use a new Logitech cam mainly for Skype calling to various countries - relatives all over the place!

The kids would use it to record themselves play-acting :-)

I would love to have a new HD webcam - my previous one was a cheap'o DSE one that only did 640x480 at 12fps.

This would be awesome to accompany my new mac book pro and iMovie studio for creating some cool videos.

:) Thanks to Logitech, Mauricio and Geekzone for this competition!

Goodluck to everyone entering!

I only have the built-in webcam on my laptop which sits on a docking station with the lid closed most of the time!
So a webcam I can sit on the LCD monitor, which is attached to the docking station, would be awesome.
