Reviews and Problems with Microsoft LifeCam Studio
Showing 1-10 of 47
Good quality camera, USB 3.0 issues
5 September 2014
Summary: The camera and microphone work well and have great quality picture and sound to them. I paired this with a small tripod that fits on a desk, and it's been great for our office. We have used this camera for interviews and meetings in professional settings. The product has one major flaw: It doesn't play nice with USB 3.0. I experience what can only be described as static in both the audio and video port if I plug this device into a USB 3.0 slot.
Summary: Well, I think it is ridiculous that currently this LifeCam studio is not 100% compatible with windows 8.1. After installing the lastest 4.25 LifeCam software, I didn't find any exe file to run LifeCam software. Unlike its Win7 software in which I can record video, take picture and record sounds, currently in Win8.1, I have no access to this LifeCam at all! I can only use third party software to do those recording things using this LifeCam.
never buy a MS cam again. Useing three pc's, same problems. Drivers fails off and on and it don't work.

Summary: 3 stars.. This cam does not work very well on my two PC's. Win7. For some reason I get a error with it's drivers. I have three pc's and tryd it on them all. Same thing. It's a pain. I will not waste my time in the future. I will buy other brands. But it came in the mail as said. That part was fine.
Summary: I was hoping to get better quality HD video than the built-in 720p HD camera in my pc... This cam works but it's constantly auto-focusing and never stays focused, so either is broken or just isn't what I was expecting it to be... Oh well.
Summary: Nice camera, works well with my old laptop running Windows 7, however I bought this to run on my new laptop which runs on Windows 8 updated to 8.1. The softwear downloaded from Microsoft does not work at all, won't ever boot up. I have searched for softwear from third parties but so for have only come up with one freebie and it is hard to near impossible to use and does not exploit the capabilities of this camera. Bottom line, great camera, lousy softwear.
Not a Bad webcam, I like it. But the Cable has problems after 6months...

Summary: I bought this webcam since it was really the higher end of the product line. I loved it when I first opened the box and tried it! I used to have a rocketfish one for my mac, but I recently bought a PC laptop, and the rocketfish didn't work on it, so I purchased this one. For the software part, it took like forever to run on my Lenovo 510P...but after I replaced the hard drive with 500GB SSD, it was not a problem.
Summary: Conflicts with software, always. You have to use there their software. I don't use Live, Internet Explorer, or Outlook. This was a waste of money. Microsoft is the bully on the block, if, you don't use their bat and ball you can't call Home. E.T. HELP.
