Those days of grainy webcam images belong in the dark ages of the internet and yet we still come across them even though out broadband existence deserves much more. Enter Microsoft to save the day (for a price, of course) with the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema HD Webcam.
The Microsoft LifeCam Cinema HD Webcam allows you to shoot your personal (and not so personal) shenanigans in a respectable 720p HD quality video. Other features include USB 2.0, 1280 x 720 HD resolution at 30 frames per second, auto focus, 4x digital zoom, a noise-canceling mic on top, and the expected proprietary Microsoft software ‘ClearFrame’ for smoother video, allegedly.
Windows 7 compatibe straight out of the box, the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema HD Webcam will set you back $80 when it is released come September 9th.
