The LifeCam Cinema from Microsoft is a high definition web cam with a 1280 x 720 resolution allowing for 720p HD video chat. The integrated CMOS sensor helps to reduce the blooming effect to avoid overloading of the light sensor which can cause bleeding of light between pixels. As a result, you can take advantage of higher picture quality with reduced bleeding of the light source. The 73° field of view makes it easy to capture wide angle pictures and video, while the 360° rotation capability makes swiveling the camera simple. With a wideband microphone you have the ability to capture quality audio when chatting and recording video.

          The LifeCam Cinema is an excellent video camera for tasks such as videoconferencing. The color detail, sharpness and auto-light control are all excellent for a camera in this class. The base is also easily maneuverable for various installation locations. We've been very satisfied with the performance overall and cannot find any major drawbacks.
