MSI StarCam Clip

 

15 won't get you far nowadays, but MSI seems intent on proving us wrong.

This is a great camera with many features that quite frankly make it underpriced. However, the red discolouration is quite noticeable. Most people won't care about this discolouration, but there are many that will so consider this your warning....

MSI StarCam Genie webcam

 

If you're thinking of adding a webcam to your PC for video messaging it often pays to opt for a camera with a strong sensor. This 1.3-megapixel sensor offers a standard 1280 x 1024 pixels, which is more than enough for most people. However, it does...

Neat design, portable, easy to set up

Not professional quality

If you’re looking for a webcam for professional video conferencing, the MSI StarCam Genie is a little too basic but as a home monitor or simply for staying in touch with family and friends, it’s a great tool at the right price.

A webcam that offers great value for money

Cheap, extremely versatile and well-made - why can't all products be like this? The StarCam 370i is the perfect accompaniment for your desktop and essential if you want to set up live video streaming and webchatting.

MSI StarCam Clip Review

 

MSI have recently sent us the StarCam Clip to review, its a webcam with a lot of features for the Price. At £14 you can capture 1.3megapixel photos (1280 x ...

For £14 the Starcam Clip is a cracking good piece of kit. The audio quality was not great from the built in mic, but most people will use a headset anyway. Besides the picture quality was what mattered and the Starcam was more than up to the task.
