4.0 out of 5 stars Good addition to your TV, 16 Oct 2012
This review is from: LG Video Camera for Skype Calls (Electronics)
I have bought this camera as soon as the new update for my TV 47LM860 had a Skype on it. I did not buy it from Amazon. Camera came in a nice box, similar design to the 3d glasses box. It is a very good quality item, matching the silver TV design. It has a magnetic holder (bottom bar) that you can stick to the back of the edge of the TV all around the perimeter and USB plug (over 1m long) in to the dedicated USB socket marked (Apps) on my TV. But the top edge is the dedicated place for you camera as you can not change orientation of the camera display in settings (yet??). camera lens is in the middle of the top bar and 2 microphones on both sides of the lens.
I am using Skype quite a lot. Quality of the picture is very good. Very wide angle, but has 4 zoom settings to magnify the picture. 2m away from the TV 3 people can comfortably fit in to the picture at widest setting.
The other side did not complain about bad sound quality nor picture quality.
When camera is transmitting the picture it ll have a red light on it.
you can only use Skype application when you have camera connected to your TV.
If you exit from the Skype by using the Home button it will not log you out from Skype and you will see people trying to call you any time when you are watching your TV. And you will not have to log in again in to the Skype.
I wish the cost of the camera was a bit less.
The camera is suitable to use on your PC (tested on windows 7) but with Skype i could not get the red light to work...
Recommended if you will use Skype on your TV. LG TV...
