If you have ever been to a party where they say to BYOB - bring your own beer, then you'll understand the concept of the Cammy IP camera cloud viewing app that requires you to BYOC - bring your own camera. As a diehard fan of Dropcam cameras, I was intrigued by Cammy for one important [...]
Have you ever accidentally started a video chat with someone when you were looking less than your best? Or maybe you're a little paranoid that THEY may be watching your every move through the webcam on your MacBook? An easy way to solve that problem would be to stick a piece of tape over the [...]
I like working in a mixed-media environment with my computer, paper notebook, and mobile phone all at my desk. Sometimes I'll jot down notes in my notebook with a pen, since it's easier to do, as I take a phone call, or when someone is speaking. After I write down a bunch of notes, sometimes [...]
Hercules announced their new HD Twist webcam during CES this past January in Las Vegas. With a suggested retail price of only $34.99, this webcam features 30fps, a 720p sensor that provides 1280x720 video resolution, 5 megapixel photo resolution, and a built in microphone with noise reduction. The unique thing about this webcam is its flexible [...]
Logitech HD Pro Webcam. Whoopity doo. Honestly, I hate to sound negative but I just do not get what the big deal is. I get HD. I do. Maybe not in the same obsession as anyone with a television or cellphone or video camera. That group is a whole different breed. I've seen [...]
Are you a fan of sending webcam films of little Wanda and her loose tooth to Aunt Millie in Iowa, or any other webcam uses? Genius, a Florida company with an extensive line of webcams has just released what looks to be a pretty cool new webcam, the eFACE 2025 which is bundled with CrazyTalk [...]
Logitech has a made a pledge to bring HD video to anyone, anywhere, and has taken another step toward that goal by unveiling a full lineup of HD webcams and the recently announced Logitech Vid HD, the free and easy way to make an HD video call. A few of the new features include HD [...]
The Tandberg PrecisionHD USB Video Camera is a high quality camera that captures 30 frame per second full 720p (1280x720) video and mono audio. This would be the ideal camera for corporate desktop video conferencing, or for casual or mobile video podcasting. It's large size and decent heft make it less appealing for the business [...]
I enjoyed reviewing the Wi-Spi EX30 security camera from Brickhouse Security, it is missing one important feature - remote viewing from the internet. I think I may have found a better solution for those times when I would like to see what's going on in my home while I'm at work. It's the Avaak Vue [...]
I've had the pleasure of getting to play with the new Microsoft LifeCam Cinema and I am impressed. I haven't tried any other HD webcams but compared to my previous webcam, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema is far superior. To make this review simple, I compared the QuickCam Pro 9000 that I purchased in March 2009 [...]
I became a big fan of BlueMic products after reviewing thei BlueMic Snowflake microphone. Today they are announcing the Eyeball 2.0 - its next generation Web camera with built-in microphone.

We've got another webcam claiming to be the first one with 720p capability. Late last week it was Microsoft's LifeCam. Today it's the Hercules DualPix. The DualPix comes in at a better price point ($59.99) than the LifeCam ($80.00) and appears to be more adjustable with two axes that can rotate for capturing pictures.
I'm not a big fan of web cams and don't use them very often. I like the fact that I can roll out of bed with crazy hair and mismatched pajamas, chat with people and they can't see me. :) If I weren't so self-conscience, I might be tempted to check out what might be [...]
I have a dog at home and I have a mounted webcam to check in on him. This system works fairly well but occasionally he isn't on the couch in the living room and it is at times like that, that I've wished for a camera that I could pan and tilt. I was really excited when I heard about Rovio, I thought it would be the perfect solution! Forget pan and tilt, I could actually go find my dog and check in on him where ever he might be.
I'm a big fan of webcams. Once I figured out how to broadcast a webcam stream on a webpage,
I started broadcasting from work so that my mom and friends could see me. One idea I had related to this was setting up a little home
surveillance system with my two Logitech QuickCams and my eeePC 701's integrated webcam. I'm mostly just curious to see what my cats do
all day while I'm at work. While setting up such a stream is pretty easy, it requires running a computer 24/7 and can be a little power and
I'm a bit of a webcam aficionado. I have several - my Dell XPS M1330 and eeePC 701 have integrated webcams, plus I have an older
VGA Logitech QuickCam and a new 2MP QuickCam Orbit AF. Video chatting can be a lot of fun when your friends live out-of-state - or on the
other side of the globe. Julie sent over a couple webcams for me to review - the
IPEVO PoV and a networked security camera from Brando.
This is a story that does not end well…
A webcam with a telescope lens attachment! How could I, an aficionado of webcams, resist the opportunity to try one of these?
I knew I was in for an adventure with a non-brand product with the intriguing name on the box of "Digital Product PC Camera".
