Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000

 

Good video quality for the price. Automatic light compensation works well. Easy-to-position rubberized mount.

No 1080p recording. Mount lacks tilt adjustment. Subpar microphone performance. Buggy live effects.

It's no stand-in for a high-end webcam, but the $40 Microsoft HD-3000 gets the job done in most situations, and is the perfect low-cost choice for anyone with a desktop PC that wants to get into video chats or basic recording.

This Microsoft camera is great. The only con is that it's a little pricier than similar models. It is really good quality, though.

Linux Compatibility

 

Worked out of the box on Ubuntu 12 ; Camera was disassembled and bare board placed in weatherproof container for outdoor monitoring. Has been running flawlessly in rain and sun for some time

As stated, the camera is fixed focused. More over the focus ring is glued into place. While this is great news for the average user who might worry about the focus drifting due to impacts, be aware if you plan on modifying it ; Extreme low-light...

Most Excellent webcam, you should buy this

 

I bought the non-business one for 24.99 a couple of weeks ago and decided to buy another, to my surprise it had gone up in price by $6. But the 'business' version was only $1 more than I originally paid for the other one. Also it is worthy to note, the...

High quality video performance ; compact design ; easy to mount anywhere, nearly ; Works on windows 2000, XP, and 7x64. Haven't tested it on other platforms ; Not the best quality in low light, but looks amazing in sunlight ; Seems pretty durable...

Does not take capture images at the advertised 1280 x 800, it is capped at 1280 x 720 ; There is no software within the unmarked package ; Good thing I know how to use the internet to find the proper software ; DHL aka USPS are not professionals and do...

Overall, I'd say this cam is great. For the price you pay you really get a good item. I'd recommend it for anyone.

Real HD, great quality ; Easy quick install ; quality built in mic ; easy to use software included ; and inexpensive

The only con I can give this is that the bendy mount can be a tad annoying, but even this is a stretch, considering I'm mounting it on a laptop. And even then it's still doable
