This webcam was a huge step-up from using my phone, especially when it came to audio! When recording my sample video, the video seemed slightly out of sync, but this was not a problem I experienced with Skype or other recording programs, so I'm certain it was the software I was using rather than the camera.
Here are some things I love about this little webcam. It has lovely crisp, high quality HD picture. Don't forget to adjust the lens to focus like I did the first time (I thought it was blurry, but it was basically my own fault). Once focused the image is really nice and clear and details can be seen. The audio is so much better than the audio on a smartphone, so this is going to be amazing for recording my youtube videos. I love the style, a lot of webcams come in that circular shape that reminds me of a creepy little eye, but this one looks like a little mini camera. It has a nice sleek black and silver design too.
But hands down my fave feature of this is how it attaches to the screen. I've found many webcams have a really old fashioned way of attaching, or don't work well with modern thin monitors, but the Ausdom cam has a flexi-bendable foot that can be positioned into a stand, or used to grip onto a flatter screen like mine. This means it should work with any type of monitor and I loved that it was so easy to attach to mine compared to other webcams which want you to balance them on top.
The only con I had with this product is the software it came with. I found it wasn't very easy to navigate and didn't seem to have a way to start recording (only snapshot). That being said, it's very easy to install your own software and if using for Skype, you don't even need one.
- Bendable leg allows attaching to any screen.
- Great audio and crisp video.
- Cool autofocus mode.
- Easy install.
- Included software is not the best for beginners.
