Didn't work as Planned

David Thomson "Davethevoice", Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: My copy of this unit would not capture motion consistently. It continued to "freeze frame" and jam up. I contacted Microsoft help desk and they agreed that the unit was defective. I will borrow several other cams now and try them before purchasing again. Thank you Amazon for making the return so very easy. It has been sent back and my account credited Done!

Pass this one up

Samuel P. Monteon, Amazon

  • Summary: It's an alright webcam. I don't like it so I'm returning it. Here's my breakdown. Pros: 1) Has a hole conveniently located so that it can be connected to a tripod 2) Has picture and video recording capabilities 3) Very little delay or choppiness to the webcam video 4) Base molds to fit the top of your screen Cons: 1) It isn't really HD 2) You can't take 1080p video, only pictures 3) Picture quality isn't much better than that of a cheap metroPCS phone say, so I laugh at...

  • Summary: Very good picture and sound quality, although only 720p in video chat. Good light sensitivity. Camera died after 6 months of use. Microsoft support hung up on me, after promissing to transfer to a "right person". No real warranty so far...

  • Summary: May be compatible with windows 8 Pro but not for basic windows 8. Several features did not work properly. If you have windows 7 , vista or xp this is an excellent and inexpensive webcam. Am returning it and buying the Logitech Pro 920 as i was able to try it and it worked a lot better with windows 8. Be aware that for the Pro 920 to work as intended, you must have a dual or quad core processor.

Microsoft Lifecam

axman, Staples

  • Excerpt: The software is weak. If the camera is supposed to take high quality video, why would there not be a fullscreen image so that you could send the video out on a projector or screen for others to see? That was the reason I bought it, and I had to use 3rd party software. High quality hardware with a sloppy interface that limits how you can use your new toy.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection, Sharp Image

For most users, better choices exist

David Arnstein, Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: Length:: 3:15 Mins I have been using a Microsoft Lifecam Cinema for several months now, with good results. The "Cinema" is quite similar to this "Studio" webcam, except that its highest resolution is 720P rather than the 1080P offered by the "Studio" webcam. First disappointment: the "Studio" webcam does not really provide 1080P video. A footnote on the box reads "1080P HD recording requires: commercial video software (not included); (...
