MacVoices #21008: Jeff Carlson on Webcams (1)

Jeff Carlson recently took a look at several different webcams, and joins us to do a live demo with what are considered some of the best web cams on the market vs. an iPhone and webcam software. Jeff and Chuck discuss and debate the results from the photographer vs. average user perspectives, and note how different cameras deliver different results in quality, field of view, light handling, and color grading.
