Best webcam for the price!Apr 17, 2011
By A. Yue
I make a living by working with and submitting videos to Youtube, so obviously a high quality webcam is number 1 on my priority list. I did some looking around and the Creative Live! Cam Socialize HD AF 720P,10MP Webcam caught my eye. I figured what the heck, it's affordable and it records in HD. I must say, this is by far the best webcam I've ever used. The picture is fantastic, the built in mic is great and it's all very simple to use. What more could you ask for from a webcam? Whether you'll just be using it to Skype or if you're like me and your job requires consistent high quality video production, the Creative Live! Cam Socialize HD AF 720P,10MP Webcam is the way to go. It's affordable, well made, and easy to use. Do yourself a favor and pick one up.

Gets the job done with mostly consistent clarity, nothing spectacularSep 12, 2011
By Alex Dodd
It was nice to find no drivers nor any bloatware BS software have to be installed to use this camera with my Asus Windows 7 PC. Just plug it in and let it install the drivers on it's own and Skype picked it up no problem. The wide angle lens is nice for conferences and other wide shots, but keep in mind if you are looking for just video chatting, hope you have a clean space/don't care where people are. The wide angle shows quite a bit more of your surroundings than most webcams.
The video is very sharp in good light, but so-so in low light. My MacBook Pros built in web cam definitely does better in lower lighting. My only other qualm with video is the auto-focus is slow to respond/sometimes straight up stupid. Luckily webcams don't generally require as demanding autofocusing as a normal camera would, but I caught it a couple of times completely out of focus, having to place my hand completely over the camera a couple of times to get it to refocus on me properly.
Audio quality seems fine too. I haven't tried nor will need to use it in a particularly noisy environment. Things recorded sounded clear and echo-free and people I have done video chats with have no complaints on their end with audio or video.

This webcam is awesome!Apr 19, 2011
By Ryan Rushia
Hey everyone, I've never been one of much use for a webcam, however with my sister going overseas for school soon and my father traveling alot for work, I deemed it necessary to obtain one, and found this little gem. The video quality is AWESOME, and it's nice and small so it can be stored real easy when not in use. I've used it to record videos in 720p just for fun, and been able to use it in serious scenarios as well. If you're looking for a great, high quality webcam, this is certainly the one for you!

Amazing Quality, a must buyApr 15, 2011
By Sung Min
I bought this product a couple weeks ago, and it has been performing amazing. My mom needed a webcam to video-chat with my sister/father overseas and the quality captured by this webcam is fantastic. It also has a mic with the webcam which meant I didn't have to buy another mic and deal with the cord, etc. It was very easy to use, I just plugged it in and Skype video-chat was flawless.
I also explored some other functionalities and installed the camera software and its quality is great. I was able to record videos and then put it up on YouTube. The user interface was very easy to use for first timers like myself.
Great all in one webcam (mic + webcam) for great price. Highly recommend this webcam!
