Microsoft's (MSFT) LifeCam NX-6000

  • Microsoft's (MSFT) LifeCam NX-6000, a Webcam featuring unusually high resolution capabilities: up to 2 megapixels for video, and up to 8 megapixels for still photos.
  • To take advantage of those resolutions, you'll need a computer with USB 2.0 connection capabilities.
  • It is been tested that LifeCam on a Dell Latitude D610 Notebook with two USB 2.0 ports, but there were significant jumps in the footage when capturing video at 1.3 megapixels or higher.
  • At lower resolutions, the NX-6000 performed very well. The images are clear, and it is easy to adjust various picture characteristics, including brightness, color saturation, sharpness, and hue.
  • The 3X digital zoom is another nice feature that lets you vary the shots from full background to close-up. The zoom is easily controlled from the camera dashboard on the computer, which also lets you pan the shot right or left by clicking arrows in either direction.
  • This Life Cam also gets high marks for design. The clip fits snuggly at top of your laptop screen whether it's thick or thin. I had no problem clipping it onto a Mac Book, for instance. The camera rotates up to 71 degrees to capture both standing shots and close-ups. The camera's compact rectangular shape is attractive.
  • The NX-6000's integration with Microsoft's services is a major plus. There's a button on the top of the camera that automatically opens Microsoft's Windows Live video chat software. Videos can be automatically saved to the application for upload to a video blog. There are also built-in controls that let users post a video to a Windows Live blog with the click of a button.
