Image for Taking me to my friends

I have purchased this web camera from a local mart when I first started my journey online. During those times I just keep chatting to my friends over the Yahoo chat rooms. Chatting can be more interesting when we have the video too. At least, we get to see the expressions at the other end and the virtual relationship seems to be real momentarily. I was not much aware about the quality of webcams at that time as I was totally new to the PC world or virtual world. So, I had asked the person who installed my computer set to suggest me one and he suggested me the Intex.

The webcam I am using of silvery color with its lens fitted to an adjustable zooming nozzle mounted over a slim base with a clip to fix it to a suitable location so that it focuses your image clear when connected to the net. The webcam can be connected to my PC by way of a USB port and it takes about a minute or so to get started. The adjustment of the image is simple and easy. There are two ways for adjustment. First, the nozzle where the lens is fitted can be rotated to zoom to fit and for clarity of the image. Secondly, on the menu for cam, there are options for adjusting brightness, speed, contrast, hue, etc. and one can get the maximum clarity of his / her image if he / she is accustomed to the computers and accessories. The camera comes with an installation CD and installation of the driver is very easy. Just put the disc to your CD / DVD drive and wait for the others and keep pressing next button till finally it finishes installations.

The company producing the webcam is ISO 9001:2000 certified and that is enough to speak about the quality maintenance of the products. My experience with the cam is satisfactory as the comment I get from the other end who is viewing my image, it is clear that the webcam carries a clean and quality picture of mine. As I am not much techno savvy, I had set my cam to default and I am satisfied with the quality it produces over my computer monitor. But, sometimes it really troubles me a little as my webcam does not work in AOL messenger. With Yahoo Messenger, I have a satisfactory experience in terms of using my webcam.

Apart from online chatting with my friends and family members, I use the webcam to capture my images to my hard drive. There are options for that and one can click any number of quality pictures using the webcam. I sometimes practice dancing by capturing my steps with the cam and viewing it live over the monitor screen. I also use my cam for fun, but it is very rare and especially when my younger cousins visit my place.

I recommend the camera as it is cheaper and also have satisfactory results.
