Microsoft Cinema overview

  • 1Description

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 Cinema reviews

    LifeCam Cinema is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't buy for mac, otherwise great 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its not bad 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Webcam - use with Windows 10 PC I bought it for use as a webcam + microphone for Cortana on a Windows 10 PC. Webcam works very well in video chats using Skype - good picture quality and wide angle of view. Mounts well on the top of a flat screen monitor. Another advantage I see with this webcam is the ability to swing the lens sideways to exactly face where you want it to.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, software incomplete... 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great webcam at a great price 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.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent set of software but poor focus Bought this to use for video calling and various photo and video projects. I like the accompanying software which seems would be very nice to go with a better camera. But the picture quality is far inferior to the older Logitech unit it replaced. It may be better on another system but is poor on my win 7 pro x64 system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Set Up Installed the camera's on 2 each Windows 10 systems. I did get a notice that I had to update a file (can't remember what it was), but all went well. We will mostly use this for Skype, with a Desktop PC. This was a good reminder for my wife to clean up her book case behind her! :)
