LifeCam Show

Cowboy Frank

  • 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. With extremely vivid picture in a variety of lighting conditions, the LifeCam show performed remarkably well. Small and compact with huge performance make this webcam a top choice this holiday season.
  • Pros: Simple Install, Small and easy to position, User friendly
  • Cons: N/A

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

PriceRunner
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 Live contacts instantly to make a call.
  • 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 carpet. Oh, and because it’s Microsoft, it doesn’t work with Macs, natch. Can’t we all just get along?

Microsoft LifeCam Show, VX-700 und VX-5500

  • 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. Große Unterschiede gibt es jedoch bei Ausstattung und vor allem beim Lieferumfang.

  • 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. Kamerę możemy też ustawić na biurku wykorzystując specjalny stojak o wysokości 27 cm, który podobnie jak klips wyposażony jest w specjalną końcówkę z magnesem, do którego doczepiamy kamerę. LifeCam Show łączy się komputerem za pomocą interfejsu USB 2.0.
  • Pros: Niewielkie wymiary, Celny autofokus, Dodatkowe filtry graficzne
  • Cons: Przeciętna wydajność, Wysoka cena

  • Excerpt: Microsoft, internet tutkunlarının video görüşmelerini mükemmel seviyede yapabilmeleri için, standartları değiştirdi. Tüketici ile bilgisayarı arasındaki bağı güçlendirmek için yazılım haricinde ürün de geliştiren Microsoft, donanım tarafındaki sessizliğini LifeCam Show webcam ile bozdu.
  • Pros: İnce şık tasarım, 2 megapiksel sensör, yüz izleme teknolojisi, 3D efekt
  • Cons: Karşı tarafla uyuşmayan yazılım, Mac uyumlu değil

  • Conclusion: Pöytäjalusta on korkea pylväs, joka pysyy painavan alustansa ansiosta hyvin paikallaan. Näyttöklipsi on turhan pieni ja toimii vain läppäreiden näytöillä. Kolmas vaihtoehto on alusta, jonka voi liimata tarralla haluamaansa paikkaan. Kamera ...
  • Pros: Pöytäjalusta
  • Cons: Kuvien sumeus, Lyhyt liitäntäjohto, Kiinnitys monitoriin
