Microsoft LifeCam Show review

PriceRunner

  • 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?

  • Pros: Decent image quality, Magnetised 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 lacklustre and quirky, Not compatible with Macs
