      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Have you ever thought it would be nice to let people see who they are chatting with on a chat page,Yes. Then you need a web cam. This little package is enables you to have a video and voice conference with anyone from anywhere around the world, and is pretty affordable. It may look like a large eyeball sitting on your PC, But it does work as good as it looks. The ZoomCam is a full colour USB video camera for Windows 95 & 98 computers giving you live motion video, And comes with some free software including Smith Micro, Video Link, JASC PaintShop Pro SE, Microsoft "NetMeeting" and I visit. It features still image capture, variable focus and auto adjust to lighting, Digital Zoom, pan and tilt and a frame rate of up to 30 frames per second. It is a sturdy and compact design and looks good sitting by your computer. It is very easy to install to a USB port and only takes a few minutes. We mainly use ours on Paltalk to chat around the world and have been told we have had a very clear and colourful image on screen, And they can see clearly what is happening. The microphone included is also giving a clear signal. ZoomCam could be ideal for many reasons including talking to your children at college if they have a cam set-up, Or a works conference so you can see and be seen, You can send a Video mail to family and friends or you could even set up the cam as a cctv camera to watch your home or see who is at the front door. There could be many ways to use the ZoomCam and it would soon pay for itself. And you'll soon be watching them, watching you watching them.

        I needed a WEbcam and being one for trying to save money I bought this from PC World. For the price I have got a webcam that allows me to do all the things I need. Now for the Buts.... When I use it and the software that comes with it the PC tends to crash and/or freeze. The resolution on the Camera is not that high, but then what did I expect for the price, I paid £35 but the normal retail is £70. Also on it is a freeze frame button allowing me to take stills with it, I must admit that I have not tried to use it for that as I do not consider the resolution of a high enough standard to warrant taking still pics with it. It does connect via the USB (but then so do most of them) I would not recommend purchasing this product, unfortunately I do not know enough about webcams to recommend a good one.
