Philips Toucam Pro II
« on: May 11, 2006, 18:42:20 »
hi
just to let anyone know if anyone is interested that i've just seen a Philips Toucam Pro II on QVC for £30.10 plus p&p.
The item no. is 554 630 and the phone no. is 0800504030
this is a really good price for someone looking at starting astrophotography or as a second camera so adaptions can be made without costing a fortune to the camera (SC3)

Hi Tony, This is not the PRO - It's just the FUN Toucam - I think this has a CMOS sensor not a CCD - It is not as sensitive & will not be as good for planets etc..  I also don't think you can mod this to SC3 - You need to make sure you have the CCD model...

The Toucam Pro II is no longer available....

Cheers,  John

Doh!!!
Looks like the daughters have got a new webcam for MSN. :-?
I think I should ask questions and then buy and not the other way round.

anyone want to buy a webcam??????
