Great but Refocuses Alot

Summary: The camera is nice. Beats the quality of built in laptop camera's. Software and drivers Installs once you plug in the USB. It has built in microphone which is pretty nice. They only problem I found was it tend to refocuses itself alot, other than that ii is a great web camera for its price
Summary: Every 10 seconds the autofocus makes a full sweep from near to far. This makes it impossible to watch the video feed for more than a couple minutes. After doing some research, it turns out this is a well-known flaw. Would not buy again.
great camera with better sound quality than most hd cams in it's pricerange

Summary: it is used but workd better than my old logitech camera. it successfully streams in HD and wih bright lighting makes the image look flawless. The auto focus needs to be switched off but it stayed off for me after multiple uses after i clicked "apply' in the advanced settings console by Auto focus...
Summary: Image quality is great, but I had to disable the auto-focus, as it tried to refocus every time I move more than an inch. No delay in the video feed, and lighting quality is better than expected.
Summary: This is my first Microsoft product that i've bought in YEARS since I switched to Apple. However this cam had received great reviews online & you can't beat it for the price. So I snatched it up. Its very good quality for sure. Great for a YouTube vlog.
