Are you looking for an ultra wide angle webcam for conference calls? Genus today announced the WideCam 320, which has a 100° viewing angle to make sure everything you want to captured to be in the frame. Genius says this is ideal for the board room, but it also applies to home users and everyone else that uses a web cam. The WideCam 320 has a built-in microphone and can capture 8MP photos. The only downside to this wide angle webcam is that it shoots video at 640x480, which was the standard nearly a decade ago. This is not a high-definition camera by any means, but then again the price reflects that. The WideCam 320 is now available now for the suggested retail price of US $39.99.
