HP premium auto focus webcam


Looks good, like the shape and size. Auto focus. Easy set up and compatible with skype.

Have to use blue tack to make sure it stays on computer screen, perhaps a thinner or smaller stand compatible with new computer screens would be useful.

HP premium auto focus webcam


It did not state the compatibility on the product pages and therefore the 3 buttons on webcam are useless as they don't work and NONE of the applications will work on my machine.

HP premium auto focus webcam


Its amazing with every respect in terms of its functionality, quality, smart design and beauty.

Suggestion For Company : Cam Software needs more improvement so that it becomes more user friendly especially with yahoo messenger. It should work on one click rather than clicking Refresh button. Secondly there is no need to start the whole software...

HP premium auto focus webcam


a lot of great features to have fun with, not just a camera!

sometimes at certain times of the day the lighting is bad, but you can just reposition yourself (if you have a laptop).
