Great lens for a cheap webcam – 2.1mm 160-Degree Wide Angle Lens for Security Cameras and Webcams Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
I used this lens with a very cheap logitech webcam. The original image quality was very very poor, the image was very dark, with lots of grain due to the poor quality plastic (I guess) optics. When I put this lens on the webcam the difference was astronomical! it now has better quality than most of the very expensive webcams! And I can even focus it on very VERY small distances to take a huge macro shot of the tip of a pen.. Also the build quality is very good, very sturdy. it's made of metal
Cons:
none really.. except that when it says wide angle, they don't mean it on the small sensors of cheap webcams, so the field of view was just like it was before
Other:
I recommend it :)
Bottomline:
Good optics for cheapo diyers :)
