      Saved my Zoom access

      When trying to set up Zoom I discovered that my integral webcam (which I rarely used) had died some time ago. A common problem with an aging laptop I discovered. But I was desperate to set up and use Zoom for an important meeting. This webcam had good reviews AND was still in stock (many didn't and/or weren't).I was so pleased that despite a delivery date at least a week hence it actually came the next day. It was dead simple to set up in minutes EXCEPT be warned that if you are in a similar situation, it may well try to use the existing driver for the dead webcam - and fail of course. I needed to find and download a suitable generic driver before it worked. But from then onwards, great.

      Seems ok *if* you can get it work

      When it works it's good for the price, but it was almost random in when this camera would and wouldn't activate. I tried it on a couple of PCs with Windows 10 and both of them identified the camera and installed the drivers automatically, so far so good.

      However, when I went to a couple of "test my webcam" sites in Chrome on my desktop they both detected the camera but captured no image. I tried the same two sites in IE and one of them showed an image but the other nothing. I tried again on my laptop and got the reverse here it worked on one website in Chrome but neither in IE. Went back to the desktop and tried again and none of the sites worked in either browser.

      Because it intermittently works then I can't solely blame the camera and it must have some incompatibility with "something" on my PCs, but they are vanilla Windows 10 builds that I only use for email and browsing ( and had planned to use with Skype!) so not really a lot of tweaking I can apply to get it to consistently work so only 3 starts for me I'm afraid.

      Webcams have come on a long way

      We use this webcam mainly for making skype calls from our desktop PC. Previously we had a Microsoft lifecam VX-2000 - a VGA (640x480) webcam about 3 years old - but the cable had been severely abused and was no longer working. There were of course HD webcams around at the time we bought it but the price seemed excessive. (And long before that I owned a logitech quickcam zoom (from 2004) - but let's not go there!)

      so being relatively happy with the other microsoft webcam I decided to plump for another one, just a few pounds more than we originally paid for the VX. On receiving it, though, the difference is night and day.

      First of all, the size was smaller than I expected. From the picture I expected it to be wider than the VX, but actually it turned out to be shorter and about the same width. This is a good thing (I thought it would be ugly at the size I was expecting it to be, but the design suits the size it actually is)
      The stand is not just stuck in one position like it looks in the picture - it's flexible so that you can easily adjust it and get it into position, which means you can get it to stand up well either on its own or on top of a screen - without resorting to it intruding on the screen. It's quite a clever thing actually.

      Picture quality is another level compared to an old VGA webcam.

      What I was most impressed by is the improved dynamic range. With the VX webcam, if there was a TV in the background, the rest of the picture would dim slightly to accommodate, but of course the TV would still be a glowing blob (a lose lose situation!). With this webcam, the improved dynamic range means that the room does not appear dim, and yet the picture on the tv is visible. Not that I'm spending time watching TV with our skype contacts, but it's a good example of how a newer webcam cuts out problems with the background interfering with the brightness of your picture.

      Of course being an 'HD' webcam the picture detail and clarity are also improved - that is to be expected, and our contacts have commented on how much better it is that they can actually see us. I should add that It's also far superior to the picture from the (old) nexus 7 which we use for skype calls around the house.

      There is not a great deal more to say. We don't use whatever software may come with such devices to add funny effects or whatever to your video.
      And there are of course features in more expensive models that you may be missing - but if you don't know what those features are, you probably don't need them and won't miss them. If you are looking to shoot professional videos - well you should probably just buy a proper video camera. If you just want a webcam for making calls, maybe youtube videos etc. this is a very good combination of budget and quality.

      Very easy to install and use

      Very easy to install and use, video is very clear and the provided software is simple to use for adjusting settings. Has a nice strong, weighted base that holds its shape well so that it sits perfectly on top of my monitor with barely a wobble. Have had two of these for years now and haven't noticed any issues.

      Level99games review

      This is a review for level99games service as opposed to the camera itself.It was my first time purchasing a streaming camera and during lockdown so wasn’t able to test or know what to expect. On first trying the camera it wasn’t as clear as what I would have liked for streaming (fine for general webcamming or streaming if you’re not too bothered about the picture quality). I had used for 5 minutes and was concerned my refund wouldn’t be accepted as I’d opened the box. I tried anyway and level99games were great and fully refunded me. Very thankful that they would do this and would happily use them again in the future.

      Decent for the price

      This camera is well situated for its price and functionality. It is certainly a capable camera and produces a high quality image, noticeably better than others in its price range that I have used in recent years. My only issue is that I tend to use this camera in relatively dark rooms as I chat/record videos late in the evening.

      I am by no means saying that the image is terrible in lower light but it is grainier than I would like. Admittedly for the price I should not be complaining but given the current state of camera technology this unit is rather basic and lacking features that should be widely available in competitively priced packages by now.

      It's easy to set up, includes a microphone (although I have not used it as I have a high quality mic for this purpose) and produces a more than serviceable image in bright light. If you do use it in low light whilst recording or streaming I would consider splashing out a little more on something fit for purpose. If you just use it for chats then this is the webcam for you.

      good value for money

      the video and camera quality is very nice for the price range. The only slight problem I have with it is the auto focus which keeps zooming in and out to balance the focus, in particular when you are not in plain light or if it is bright only in front of the computer and the background is dark.

      Broke after 4 months

      The webcam is great when it works. It started misbehaving ac ouple of months back, requiring removal and re-insertion into port. Now it's dead, tried on 2 laptops, this error:Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)A request for the USB device descriptor failed.

      Good unit but some issues that do not make it perfect.

      The LifeCam Studio webcam.
      Pros:
      1. Neat unit - appears to be well constructed.
      2. Good base that will sit in different monitors, laptops etc. Being able to mount on a tripod or microphone stand is a useful facility.
      3. The picture quality is - like many cameras of this type - superior in natural light. In other situations it is good for Internet conversations but not good enough to make quality recordings. (Manual and autofocus are quite slow in lower light conditions.
      4. Audio is adequate.
      5. The ability to pan and tilt has some use but is dependent on how far the camera lens is 'zoomed'.
      Cons:
      1. The packing box says Windows 10 but when the drivers are downloaded you currently read that not all functions will work.
      2. The camera does work with Windows 10 OS but the gimmick stuff does not on my PC. (Putting silly animated hats overlays is no interest to me - or most others buying a camera of this type).
      3. The software allows adjustment of zoom, pan, tilt, focus - but response is slow.
      4. Software allows the user to change modes e.g. focus and auto focus etc.
      5. The lens cap us useless and consistently falls off!
      Thus unit has the potential to be very useful but is let down in a number of areas.
      I hope my review is useful for those considering purchase.

      Easy to install and good quality

      The Microsoft Life-Cam is, by comparison with other webcams, compact. It grips neatly to the top of the screen and whilst the lead is not long if your computer is on the same desk it should reach easily. The picture quality is good, although the microphone does to come up to the same standard.I have installed it on an HP desktop running Windows 10 and it connected immediately, with no need to download external drivers. This was bought specifically to be used with Zoom which it does easily.Overall good value for money, good quality.
