Creative WebCam Go

 

The WebCam Go's long, tapered, dark grey plastic body has two curved, rubberized strips on the bottom that help keep the camera from sliding off the top of a monitor. The lens swivels 90 degrees so that you can point the camera in the correct...

Works harder to be a decent digital still camera than other Webcams.

Image quality is slightly subpar.

Try this camera on for size if you want the convenience of digital stills and a Webcam in one handy device.

Doesn't work properly!

 

If I can't extract the picures I take then what good is it. I installed, and uninstalled again and again. I wish I had the weekend back again!

Driver from hell or nowhere

 

As a webcam it is performing decent when it is working. In Windows it for no apparent reason stops working and you have to do a re-install. No support for OS X. Simply put, Creative sucks

Excellent Value for Money

 

If you expect a good webcam with the added bonus of a basic camera for a few snapshots then you won't be disappointed. If you want a good digicam then this in not for you... go get your cheque book out and spend some more $$$. I love it. I have a good...
