      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.

      Comments about Microsoft LifeCam Cinema:

      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.

          Comments about Microsoft LifeCam Cinema:

          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.

              Comments about Microsoft LifeCam Cinema:

              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.

                It's everything you'd want it to be. Great picture quality and works well with minimal lighting. Easily perches on top of the computer. I dig it!

                      Dont be cheep. Spend a bit more and get this quality product that you and the viewer on the other side will appreciate and enjoy. Plus you'll look great! Good news, it is much smaller than it appears on the box.
