What's the difference between Logitech QCP 9000 and Vision Pro webcams?

    I note that Logitech are marketing their Vision Pro webcam as "for Mac", and yet from what I've seen of the specs, it's just a QuickCam Pro 9000 with a different colour activity light - and of course, the QCP 9000 works on a Mac just like any other UVC-compliant webcam.

    Is there actually any substantive difference between the cameras, or is it really just a marketing exercise?

    In the Vision Pro, autofocus is handled in hardware. That's the only way to get this camera to autofocus on the Mac.

    I've read conflicting accounts about whether the Vision Pro will work on a PC; I think it will, if you download the Windows software and drivers.

    I use the 9000 at work and at home on my PCs. The image quality is spectacular. I would expect the same from the Vision Pro. Once you and your distant friend see the quality, you'll be glad you paid the premium for this camera.
