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.

Microsoft LifeCam Cinema Reviews
Very nice small camera
My desktop computer does not have a built in camera/microphone. I've been using an older model Logitech camera for a number of years but had to replace it when my wife pre-empted it to use with a laptop for her Zoom piano lessons. This camera works very well, has higher resolution and a wider angle of view than my previous camera. (I haven't told my wife that this camera is much better than the one she's now using).
Get a grip
Good camera and mic. No complaints. The mounting is weak, ended up taping the bracket to the monitor.
Works rather spottily - blue bands and flashes in and out
What it works it is great. But it randomly sports blue bands and fuzzy static.
Good quality and picture, but it's only a wide angle lens
I ordered this without thinking through the wide angle aspect of the camera. In retrospect, I wish I had bought a camera that has a more close up image. That being said, the camera works well. The picture seems clear and the focus works well, most of the time. I believe the sound quality also is good although I do not typically use the included microphone.
Good video and audio quality. auto focus work great.
I love it
Great quality in an affordable and necessary tool for today
Set is easy, school at home became one step closer to being back in the classroom.
Great product! Excellent focus and maneuverability. The only suggestion for improvement I can make would be to incorporate a screw below the camera that would enable the operator to use a 35mm camera stand.
