Microsoft LifeCam Cinema Reviews

Very nice small camera

By Robert
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-09-17

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).

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.

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.
