About Microsoft

The LifeCam Studio USB WebCam from Microsoft is a compact USB 2.0 camera with a wide-angle, high-quality glass lens. This autofocus camera can shoot 1080p HD widescreen video at its highest resolution or 720p HD widescreen. For 1080p HD resolution, you will need the right commercial video software not included with the camera while the software included with this camera -Windows Live Movie Maker and Live Photo Gallery- supports 720p HD.

Beyond the lens, the camera also features an integrated high-fidelity microphone for capturing natural, detailed audio. It is set on a flexible stand so that you can position it with ease on your desk or laptop, or you can use the built-in threading for setting it on a tripod. Along with the camera and microphone, you can use the built-in Windows Live Call button to launch your favorite chat software with ease.

The button works with Windows Live, Microsoft Office Communicator, Yahoo! Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger and Skype. Aside from chatting or conferencing, you can also use the software included with the camera to manage your videos and photos. More specifically, with Windows Live Movie Maker software, you can start a movie project with one click, then upload widescreen video to social networking sites.

Also, with Windows Live Photo Gallery, you can easily upload, edit, tag and share your photos with friends and family. No matter the program that you use, the camera utilizes ClearFrame technology to enhance video recorded in poorly-lit environments and TrueColor technology for automatically controlling exposure for bright and colorful video. All told, this camera has all the features you need for snagging and experiencing the vivid sights, sounds and colors of real life.

Shopper  Hope you are not a set up and really an employee or friend of this company so that I can get an unbiased option from you. What was your experience with this camera?
RONALD G  I am not an employee of Adorama or Microsoft. I own a business. The camera was easy to set up and considering its cost it is worth the money. It provides multiple exposures and while it is not a professional camcorder it just the job for my purposes which is to use it for skype and other web based video/audio communications.
