    • A. The camera plugs into a USB port. So either a laptop or desktop computer with a USB port works.

    • A. That depends on 2 things. 1. The distance the camera is placed away from you will show a wider shot. 2. How you adjust the software zoom feature. So either moving the camera towards you will give a closer shot (or vice versa) OR placing the camera in one place and use the zoom software feature to adjust the same distance. Your choice. But whatever you do make sure you comb your hair before using this camera because the HD does make a difference.

    • A. It can aim wherever you want....as long as your pc's USB port is within reach of the 5 ft cable...and/or get a 9 ft extension cable (BEST BUY is where I got mine for $30 (yikes!)) which gave me 5ft + 9 ft = 14 ft total. That way, I coudl setup the camera in the window for surveillance by having it aim out my house at where my family parks the cars, and the USB end of the camera attaches to the USB port of my pc (not located near the window) DIGI-WATCHER is the cheap great surveillance software (digi-watcher.com) that I used with this camera to detect motion and record

    • A. It works the same as most basic webcams do showing everything within the viewing area, however there is a software feature that will blur the background and focus only on your face/head during use.

    • A. Yes, in the supplied software there is the ability to zoom, pan and tilt. I've used the zoom on Skype to tighten my viewing frame to others. The pan and tilt I've set once and pretty much left them alone.

    • A. Yes The software that comes on a CD in the box with the camera installs a program called Microsoft LifeCam that shows you an image of what your camera is aimed at after you connect the USB cable attached to the camera, put the CD in the tray and run setup.exe When you double click on the Microsoft Lifecam icon on your desktop you will see the image window . Click on the blue side bar on the right and it opens up another panel for settings. Click on teh white 'gear' icon and you will see video settings in that part of the panel on the screen You can scroll down the menu drop down box to try different resolutions that adjust the size of the image you are viewing If you install other software (like I did ) for motion detection and video surveillance, it depends on the software's ability to adjust video resolution and image size...

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    This camera's price has been steadily coming down since 2011. I got mine online on Wal-Mart.com for $22!!! Free shipping if my order totaled $50 or more and I did find an additional camera, a higher end Microsoft LifeCam 5000, for $30. Great quality color video. I needed to setup home security/surveillance with 2 cameras and these were a great price for simple USB connection to my pc or laptop Nice black flexible support structure holds the camera. You can set it up just about anywhere. The MicroSoft LifeCam CD software driver is included. Easy running setup.exe but you specify your operationg system during installation. Copatible with: -Microsoft Windows 7 (32 bit or 64 bit) -Windows XP -latest Windows 8. This camera works great with a well rated, low-cost surveillance/motion detection program called DIGI-WATCHER. (free download from Digi-watcher.com, to try for 30 minute sessions and if you like, then buy it for $39) Great use with theses Microsoft cameras. which gives you a registration code)

    After comparing several webcams on youtube (unboxing) while checking prices for a comparable webcam I was excited to make this purchase. I'm certain that if you chose this mid-ranged price webcam and purchase it from Walmart on line. You'll know that you'll receive a professional capable webcam for a price far below market value. I'm so pleased I've recommended this camera to two other people who I talk to everyday on Skype because it puts there webcams to shame. Both the built in webcams and the after market webcams they are using cannot campare. Certainly you can buy many webcams for less like Logitechs starter webcam priced about $10 US dollars and more expensive models for about $75 us dollars on the average. However the more expensive the product is doesn't translate [mean] you'll be getting a better quality, a better design or functionality in your purchase. Moreover, my friends "cheap is cheap!" So you don't have to aggravate yourself because just "blown" twenty bucks for a webcam that doesn't deliver the professional quality video or sound you expected. You'll be sorry you didn't spend ten dollars more to get the very best for less. So do yourself a favor and spend a fraction of the cost of more expensive webcams that don't deliver and get professional quality webviewing and surperb sound featured in this affordable webcam.

    Parents moving to Florida, so I wanted to set up Skype to allow them to see the grandkids. Got it home, open the box, installed drivers and plugged it in and was making Skype video calls in less than 5 minutes. Video is very responsive, quality is very good, even in relatively low light. Sound quality is good as well. The only thing I don't like about the product is the included software does not work via a Remote Desktop session.

    Needed a better web cam for Skype and other uses and this one is a good fit. The price was right and the quality is pretty good. The weighted flexible base is a nice touch as it makes it easy to place to grab well framed images without moving around or slipping. I use this in my home on a home computer but it works well on the laptop too. I am using Win 7 pro and it was an easy install.
