amazon Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000 reviews
Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000, which records 720p HD video at 30fps and HD stills if your PC runs Windows XP Service Pack 2 or higher, Intel Dual-core 1.6GHz or higher, and at least 1GB of RAM. If configured lower, the webcam only captures 4-megapixel still images.
The Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000, like the Microsoft LifeCam HD-6000, has a button on top to power on and boot Windows Live Messenger. The webcam’s grip is not tight enough on top of a slim laptop screen, but it fits snugly against the desktop screen. The device is neat, rectangular, with autofocus and microphone noise. You can rotate the HD-5000 webcam from left to right in small angles, but can not fold up or down. You must also install the Microsoft LifeCam and Windows Live Messenger software for the HD-5000 from the accompanying CD-ROM.
For HD video chatting with the HD-5000, in addition to the above system configuration, Microsoft requires a broadband Internet connection. The HD-5000 does not have an onboard video processor, so it does not support HD video chat over Skype, but works well with Skype in standard definition: You can use special effects of the program when chatting over Skype. Zoom in / zoom out and panning capabilities also work well.
The Microsoft LifeCam software’s TrueColor feature adjusts to ambient brightness for optimal color. As with the HD-6000, you can manually adjust the various modes after the TrueColor feature is disabled. If this feature is enabled, you can only manually adjust the brightness. The controls for zoom and panning in the LifeCam display window can be used for both the HD-6000 and the HD-5000.
where can you get a Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000 online
You must use the Microsoft LifeCam software display window to adjust the settings of the HD-5000, so you should select the setting before you start chatting. This webcam can shoot video resolutions from 160×120 to 1,280×720 HD.
The webcam’s motion control feature is quite smooth, but the image has dots and graininess, even when recording 720p HD video. At the standard brightness setting, the image is slightly green but can be re-calibrated. If the manual setting is too high or too low, the camera will automatically adjust to make the settings more accurate.
The camera looks constantly sharp, even when not moving. When moving fast, the image blurts out, as if autofocus must be adjusted to capture both motion and brightness. You can use the button in the LifeCam software to minimize blurring, but it’s not really effective.
Micro noise reduction features, easy to catch from different angles and distances. Your video chat is always clear.
LifeCam software supports special effects such as wig, facial deformation, clown face, etc. (can be easily applied to other video chat software). If you use the Windows Life Photo Gallery software, you can tag photos and videos with the HD-5000 for upload to Facebook or other photo sharing sites.
