Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000
25 July 2014
Excerpt: I have recently acquired the LifeCam VX-3000 as a gift for stop-motion animation. The still photo quality is amazing for something its size. It is only 2″ wide and 2.75″ tall and shoots in 5 mega pixel quality. It is also capable of shooting video.
Excerpt: I bought this webcam last 12 February 2008. I really search for a webcam that is cheap but is of good quality. I bought this webcam for less than $50. Not really that cheap but it has a high quality.
Summary: Reasons I bought this camera: - it's cheap - it has a microphone - it's not a headset (I've been having a lot of trouble finding cheap microphones that aren't headsets and still have decent reviews) - I guess a camera is a nice bonus for a cheap mic that I don't have to wear on my head. The Good: 1. Camera's about as advertised. Pretty grainy on g+ hangout, but surprisingly well-adjusted to lighting. The Bad: 1. It broke as soon as I set it up.
Summary: I use this to make stop-motion movies. The picture quality is very good. The camera can easily clip onto any flat screen monitor, and it can be set on top of a CRT monitor (or the floor, or a desk, etc). The 6 foot cable is very handy when you want the camera far from the computer. The focus is slightly hard to use at first, but after you get used to it, it works well. The pan, tilt, zoom, and face-tracking can only be used on low resolutions.
Summary: Great video camera for PC. Purchased for my mom who has never used a webcam and she was able to use instantly. Quick, easy 3 step setup. Software is simple and video quality is very clear. Now she can see and talk live with her 2 year old granddaughter who lives in another state. Tip: You have the ability to manually focus the video image by using the knob on the lens so be careful handling the camera so that you do not accidently cause a blurred video.
Very good product highly recommended product and seller.

Summary: The LifeCam was bought primarily for the Birthday of a Sister at church. She had requested on of my friend and I volunteered to order it for her. I received it within good time and the packaging was excellent. She expressed satisfaction with the product in question. She gave me a run down of the features such as the clarity of the video, the ability to take out photos and so on. It has given me much pleasure doing business with BUYITLOVEIT.
Excerpt: I purchased this webcam a while ago, just before upgrading monitors. I'd had enough of the novelty Simpsons affair I had at the time, and I found this webcam online for £11 (exchange rate in price paid field is valid as of 11/11/11). At the time I hadn't had many Microsoft peripherals before, but trusted the name and went ahead with it.
Summary: This is an excellent quality entry level camera I have been using for a couple of years now, primarily for Skype. The picture quality is only average now for most newer webcams, but it works as expected. The sound quality is only so-so depending on how far away from the camera you are when talking to it. Sometimes it is worth using a separate microphone, espeically if you are going to be walking around.
