Creative Live! Cam Connect HD

 

The mid-priced Creative Live! Cam Connect HD doesn't stand out on performance or features, but it's a noticeable upgrade from the built-in webcam on the average laptop lid.

Sleek, diminutive design. Plug-and-play compatible. Skype HD certified. Clear audio recordings

Noisy video recordings. Only captures mono sound. Doesn't record in 1080p

The 720p HD sensor and auto-focus lens record video at up to 30 frames per second. Built-in H.264 hardware video processing usually helps here. Alas, video quality was still a disappointment in my tests. Recorded 1280-by-720-pixel footage in H.264 mode...

Creative WebCam NX Ultra

 

Review: Available for about $70 (as of March 2004), the Creative Webcam NX Ultra has the best color quality of the cameras we've tested, and it comes with a comprehensive software package to boot. It's a little on the large side--a bit smaller than a...

Saturated color; highly adjustable; impressive software package

Pixelated and grainy images

Although this Webcam has great color and comes with a comprehensive software package, its picture quality is subpar when paired with video instant messengers.

Creative Live Cam Socialize HD AF

 

The $70 Creative Live Cam Socialize HD AF Webcam keeps you in touch with friends and family with a creative suite that includes visual and vocal overlays that add a fun, interactive element to your chats. The HD sensor can shoot 8-megapixel snapshots...

The Creative Live Cam Socialize HD AF Web camera produces impressive 8-megapixel snapshot photos and 720p video, and the engaging chat-ready visual and voice effects place this Webcam a cut above the competition.

The video lags and struggles to catch up during several of the face distortion features.

We recommend the Creative Live Cam Socialize HD AF Webcam because it directs attention to the subject while the hardware operates smoothly in the background, allowing you to freely engage in uninterrupted communication with your friends and family.

Creative Live! Cam Voice

 

Perfect for Skype users, the Live! Cam Voice shows off Creative's audio pedigree.

Adaptive-array microphones • Wide-angle lens • Headset included

Lengthy installation process • Poor low-light performance

Creative Live Cam Voice

 

Though it's fairly large, the Creative Live Cam Voice is surprisingly stable. The camera's bulbous body, which is reminiscent of E.T.'s head, sits atop a claw-like stand. The spring-loaded leg securely holds the camera in place on top of a flat-panel...

Stable stand; ample physical flexibility; impressive software bundle; three audio options; advanced image adjust options.

Noise is visible in still and moving images; fast movement in video looks blurry; must switch the driver to use video effects; occasionally fails to capture photos; features launch in separate windows instead of one main interface.

With beefed-up audio features, the Creative Live Cam Voice is one of the best overall cameras for IM and Internet-based voiceconferencing.

Creative WebCam Live! Motion Webcam (titanium)

 

Review: With an abundance of image settings and software, the Creative Live Motion Webcam is aimed at a more sophisticated Webcam user. It features remote monitoring and motion detection for the security-minded and has the impressive ability to take...

Includes software for remote monitoring and managing photos and video; takes panoramic shots; good low-light performance; large viewable area

Images have a convex appearance; fast movement is blurry in video; still images show digital noise; camera clicks when moving

The Creative Live Motion offers an innovative set of Webcam features and an extensive software package, but it falls short where it counts: photo and video performance.

Creative WebCam Live Ultra

 

Review: The latest addition to Creative's extensive line of Webcams, the Live Ultra is a novice-friendly unit that offers decent-quality photo and video in medium to high light situations, but its low-light quality leaves room for improvement. With...

Rotates 360 degrees; useful software bundle

Pixelated and dark images with video instant messaging; stand isn't compatible with CRT monitors

This Webcam provides great software and good video and picture quality for amateurs, but more-advanced users may crave additional settings and editing options.

Creative's WebCam Instant is a webcam with personality. It has a three-leg base that's designed to fit thin-panel displays, laptops, and notebooks, although you can also rest it on a flat surface. With two legs hanging over the front of your monitor...
