Ad Hoc Usability Testing: Webcam Positioning

The overhead camera was proving to be an issue. The Logitech C310/C260 webcams have a 40cm minimum focus distance (infinite focus). The old setup positioned the camera too close. I converted a desk lamp into a multi-position webcam holder, allowing us to position the webcam farther from the device. The second webcam is positioned at the elbow and will point at the participant.

  1. I'm doing testing of how different image formats resolutions appear on the Nook. I remembered your blog post, so I came back to see what you did for your set up.

    I'm gonna use your trick with the desk lamp to create a station where I can take photos of the nook showing different formats.
