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.

        Comments about Microsoft LifeCam Cinema:

        The quality is not bad could be just a tad better but for the price its better than most webcams. It takes real good still pictures and does real good video and has awesome low light pickup so you dont need all the lights on in the room to use it. If you manulay control the focus in the software you can zoom in on objects 1 inch away

        Cons.. It focuses too much.. I beleive its due to its software.

        LifeCam performs well in all areas. The software running on Win 8 is incomplete. Runs complete on Win 7. Download software from Microsoft for Win 7 to run on Win 8, almost perfect. It allows adjustment of resolution and camera settings. Then download Windows Essentials 2012 to complete software.

            I hastily bought this without researching if it would be mac compatible. I've only been an Apple user for a short time and haven't learned that only Apple is compatible with Apple. However downloading special software and hacking my computer to shut off facetime I managed to make this camera work at least once. It was very clear, beautiful feed back. I love the way the base is designed, very versatile- I could point it in any direction, swivel it, attach is different places. And the cord is very long. Overall great design.

                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.
