Logitech today announced the portable Logitech HD Webcam C615 for easy video calling and HD recording on the go – whether you’re at a birthday party or on a business trip, on a PC or a Mac.

It also includes one-click HD video and photo upload to Facebook, as well as HD video upload to YouTube and Twitter, so you can easily share your video recordings. To bring you extra flexibility, the webcam comes with a 3-foot USB cable with an extender, and has a tripod-ready design so you can easily capture video from any vantage point.

“We know how important it is for today’s travelers to stay connected, whether they’re on the road for business or leisure, so we are pleased to offer an HD webcam that simplifies video calling and sharing videos on the go,” said Joerg Tewes, vice president and general manager of Logitech’s consumer video business unit. “The Logitech HD Webcam C615 is designed for maximum flexibility no matter what your needs may be, with the equipment necessary for HD recordings right in the box and easy-to-use editing features for both Mac and PC users.”

The Logitech HD Webcam C615 features built-in autofocus, helping ensure your picture quality will be razor sharp – even in extreme closeups – and a built-in mic that helps make sure background noise won’t spoil your video calls. With Logitech’s newest webcam, users can also capture software-enhanced 8-megapixel images, while built-in Logitech Fluid Crystal Technology gives users smoother , sharper pictures, richer color and clearer sound in real-world conditions.

The HD C615 is expected to be available in the U.S. in June for a suggested retail price of $79.99, and expects to be available in Europe and Asia in September.
