In Todays internet world we revolve around digital imaging and text messaging. Webcams have been around for a while now and they are just getting better and better. Webcams in todays tech world don't glitch like they use too, they are good looking, and they serve multiple purposes.
The Microsoft Lifecam is a relitively good priced highend web camera, the first thing you notice is how sleek it is, the web cam is black with silver accents. The camera installs in seconds using web 2.0 to connect to your computer or you can get a ps/2 coverter to use the life cam on it.
The camera works well, I used it with aim and I didn't have one glitch, you can use it with MSN and most messengers. If you combine it with a microphone you can video conference people. The camera also has settings for brightness and hue and other settings.
Overall I would highly recconmend this as your webcam of choice.
