Genius Look 316


Adding a webcam to your laptop is a great way to stay in touch with friends and family. Letting you take photos and add video to instant messaging software, the Genius Look 316 (£15 inc. VAT) is an accessible option.

Good price ; Quick to set up

Poor software

However, for such an affordable camera, it is more than adequate for basic online use, making this ideal for the whole family and suited to a life on the move
