Microsoft LifeCam HD-5001 Webcam

 

This webcam lives up to expectations and stands true to the specs provided. The few misses with the Microsoft HD-5001 Webcam – including the overactive auto-focus tool – are not bad, but other similarly priced products perform slightly better.

While the auto focus is not perfect, the picture is really great once it does focus. This camera is also easy to use and set up, even for beginners.

Purchased this for a desktop webcam. The clip/stand is --only-- useful if you clip it on to your monitor, it cannot stand on its own very well on your desk, etc. Even when clipped to my monitor, it was very loose. The 'LifeCam' software that comes with...
