The Microsoft LifeCam VX-800 has an integrated noise-cancelling microphone and is optimized for Windows Live. It also works seamlessly with Yahoo Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger and Skype for video calls in full colour and messaging.
The LifeCam VX-800 costs only R157 and is really easy to use. Simply plug it into an USB port – it is Plug & Play and will set itself up automatically. Attach the webcam with its unique folding base (see video below) to your laptop or LCD screen or make it stand wherever you feel you’ll get the best capturing angle.
Video resolution is 640 x 480 and is surprisingly good in low light. It auto-adjusts for low-light conditions.
As you’ll notice in the video, the LifeCam VX-800 is small and easy to handle. It weighs 68 gram and measures 5.22 x 5.23 x 6.24cm.
