This webcam is pretty awesome. Once you manage to prise it out of Microsoft's iron-clad bomb-proof armored packaging (seriously, it took about seven minutes and a pair of scissors to work it out! Oh, and you might take a while to find the little black rubber lens cap, which is inside the white paper drivers-'n'-documents box), it actually seems surprisingly small and light. Getting it to work also requires Microsoft's annoying proprietary drivers and an internet connection, which I assume is because the ones on the disk are out of date and so I was treated to an agonizing 80MB download. However, once it's up and running it's easy to see why it commands the price it does and why you'll learn to put up with all the slightly annoying drivers and the impossible package.

Also of note is that new firmware is available for the camera, which is meant to make it better, faster, shinier and generally something you should do; I can't comment on whether this is true, because I installed it before I used it. Whether the result of the update or not, the camera seems to work pretty well. The drivers too aren't too bad to use if you can bear the download time; as well as letting you zoom the picture (fairly cool, and doesn't seem to affect quality either), there's a few effects you can apply to the video output even during a video call. Some of them, such as the hats, face distortions, and actually fairly cool background blurring rely on face detection (which is surprisingly reliable), while others overlay filters - black & white, sepia, posterise and so on. The driver interface isn't bad either, with a little icon in the task bar allowing you to change zoom, effects and settings quite easily.

I was very impressed with the Microsoft LifeCam studio which has now replaced my Microsoft Lifecam cinema HD. Compared to the Cinema the lower resolution look clearer and brighter. At 720p the picture is much brighter than the Cinema and the fact that it DOES stream using Nefsis at 1080p is amazing. Be warned however you do need a very good computer and at least 2.5meg up and 2.5meg down to stream 1080p at 30fps

This is the best webcam I have used. I had the HD500 before this and the Lifecam VX300 before that. The images are bright and clear even in low light. Using skype, callers say the picture quality is very clear and bright even in low light conditions. You can zoom the image add special effects to yourself, glasses etc using its recognition software. The unit has a rubber mount that securely fits to any monitor and seems the same as the cheaper H5D-00003. The sleek tubular body is elegant and is in a brushed aluminium finish. It looks big on amazon product page but is nice and compact sitting on a large monitor.

The auto focus functionality works well and is relatively quick. The webcam supports 1080p at 30fps in a 16:9 aspect.

I have not used the camera with Live Messenger as I do not use those applications.

Overall a great product. 1080p in a camera this small is nothing short of amazing!

First word came in my mind when I switched this cam on was WOW. Picture quality is just superb and much better than I can think of. Not only me but whoever watches the video and pictures taken by this cam are stunned. It works amazing on skype and other video conferencing applications. All of my friends on skype ask me which camera I am using and now everyone wants it because picture quality is extremely better than any other webcam I have seen so far. I also see the clear difference in picture quality between my webcam and my friend's webcams when I do group video chat. None of my contact has such great video quality as mine, seriously no way near it.

It works perfect in low light and its mic is also HD quality as my voice is always very clear in voice chats and my friends also has noticed it.

I am graphic designer and very very quality conscious person. I hardly compromise on quality and let me tell you if you are looking for a quality webcam then this is the best choice. I have seen many other webcams and have tried many but this is by far the best. Don't go for Logitech as it is known for less durable products and are always overpriced and hardly give you such build as well as picture quality. This webcam is really cool looking and perfect for all of your needs. Really easy to install and to adjust on the screen.

I would have given 10 out of 5 stars if that was possible.

This was very much a wing and a prayer type thing when I bought this. The high quality of the images and the design of the camera itself can't be disputed but I'm running this on my macbook and it's compatible; to an extent.
Mac only runs video chat in 4:3 and this webcam 16:9, so the picture gets distorted. However, I'm using this for animation work and am using software that accommodates any aspect ratio - so I can use this without warped images and as such this camera, though not perfect on this OS, meets my needs 100%

I had a lot of difficulty finding out whether or not this was compatible, hence my trepidation and so I hope this review will be helpful for someone in a similar boat to me.
