It’s hard to dispute the LifeCam Cinema as a great webcam offering from Microsoft, at least in its intended video role, the company has combined excellent moving image quality with a well-designed hardware concept. quote

The very best feature on this is the incredible auto-focus. I have placed a book no more than an inch from the lens and it was able to focus to a point where the book was easily readable in hardly any time. The video quality is very nice as well.
