  • Excerpt: I am impressed with this camera. Fantastic images. Great color. It even took my extreme daylight test with very little overexposure (clipping).
  • Pros: Extremely sharp image, Works very well under room to bright lighting conditions, Works fair under very low lighting conditions, Innovative magnetic mounting system, Very thin so packs neatly in a briefcase
  • Cons: Focus is only ideal between 21-60 inches

  • Summary: The Microsoft LifeCam Show is a great webcam in a very nicely sized package. The LifeCam Show has very nice video resolution range with a max setting of 800 x 600 and a min setting of 120 x 160. The still capture resolution of this camera is an amazing 8 Mega Pixels.
  • Pros: Simple Install, Small and easy to position, User friendly

Microsoft LifeCam Show

17 September 2008
  • Summary: The Microsoft LifeCam Show offers improvement over Microsoft's previous laptop Webcam, but Logitech still has the laptop Webcam to beat.
  • Pros: Decent image quality; magnetized connection options are flexible and sturdy; 2-megapixel sensor provides higher resolution than your typical Webcam; 3D video effects improve on past efforts.
  • Cons: LifeCam application remains lackluster and quirky; not compatible with Macs.

Pretty but pricey pictures.

  • Summary: The Microsoft Lifecam Show is a solid webcam offering let down by its exorbitant price tag. With the exception of its inferior stand, the Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 will do everything just as well for a more reasonable price.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, versatile mounting options, nifty 3-D features, glass element wide-angle lens
  • Cons: Prohibitive asking price, incompatible with Macs, glass element wide-angle lens

Microsoft LifeCam Show review

6 April 2009
  • Excerpt: We know what you’re thinking. Are you sure this is actually a webcam ? You’d better believe it. Despite being just over 6cm in length, the Microsoft LifeCam Show is a nifty little webcam that’ll go toe to toe with video streamers three times the size of it.
  • Pros: The small size, constructible stand, clever carry case and clip make the Microsoft LifeCam Show perfect for laptops. The 800×600 video quality is a great improvement on previous LifeCam models, and is smooth for the most part, plus a button on the side of the camera will bring up your Windows Liv...
  • Cons: Microsoft has made it quite clear that the LifeCam Show is for laptops only by supplying the shortest USB cable possible with it. If you want to use this with a desktop, you’ll need to either have your beige box right next to the monitor, or put your monitor on the floor and work and chat on the ...

Microsoft LifeCam Show [Évaluation]

  • Conclusion: Microsoft nous offre donc, une très bonne caméra qui saura bien se positionner parmi la concurrence et que nous n’aurons pas honte d’afficher fièrement sur notre écran. Les fonctionnalités sont très intéressantes pour la plupart (extrapolation 7.4 MP, quoi ?!?

Expert Review

20 October 2014
  • Summary: Microsoft LifeCam Show kan tack vare magnet monteras på flera olika sätt. Detta förutsatt att kameran står nära datorn, då sladden har begränsad räckvidd. Bilden är brusig med tydliga färgstick. Vid videobruk används inte kamerans hela upplösning vilket är synd.

Microsoft LifeCam Show, VX-700 und VX-5500

5 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Angesichts der insgesamt mäßigen Bildqualität von Webcams und der fehlenden Ausnutzung hoher Auflösungen entfällt, sollte dieser Punkt bei der Kaufentscheidung außer Acht gelassen werden. Demnach eignet sich die LifeCam VX-700 für normale Verwendung ebenso wie die rund dreimal so teure LifeCam Show.

Microsoft LifeCam Show

21 December 2010
  • Conclusion: Niewielka kamera, która z kablem zmieści się nawet w kieszeni. Wyposażona jest w dosyć nietypową podstawkę, która składa się z klipsa przyczepianego do laptopa oraz specjalnego magnesu łączącego klips z kamerą.
  • Pros: Niewielkie wymiary, Celny autofokus, Dodatkowe filtry graficzne
  • Cons: Przeciętna wydajność, Wysoka cena
