The quality of video that the webcam produces is an important aspect to look for, this is called the resolution and is stated like 640×480. The higher the resolution the higher the quality of video the webcam will produce, as the video that webcams produce will normally be in a small window the resolutions are not normally that high but it’s better to get one with a higher resolution as it will still look better.

Some webcams also have a digital zoom, this means that you can zoom in when using the webcam to show items in better detail. Some webcams also have a clip that attaches to the monitor, these are great as you can aim them so that the camera is always pointing where you require and it also means that the webcam will be steady and not move or fall without you noticing.

Some webcams also double as a digital camera, this means that you can use the webcam to take photos and store them on your PC or send them to friends using the instant message software. Having a digital camera is a nice addition to the webcam, the quality of the camera is not usually as good as that found in proper digital cameras but they are usually quite good.

webcams are easy to set up, they usually have a USB adaptor which you simply plug into your computer. All you have to do then is place the webcam where you wish using the clip or base provided and then run the installation program, this normally comes on an enclosed CD.
