USB Webcam with LED Lights – Metal Finish

The right camera to get the job done — this is probably the best description for this HDE webcam. From $32.99, now it’s down to only $8.13 making it one of the best web cameras below 10 bucks! Unless you are after professional HD quality, this webcam will definitely be able to satisfy you.


This camera will surely keep you in touch with your love ones any time of the day. Depending on the lighting condition of the room you are in, its 6-LED light automatically adjusts its brightness to suit your environment.


The built-in Night Vision feature further enhances the webcam’s image and video capturing capability. With Night Vision, you can still get crisp and clear results even in considerably dark environments. If the auto-adjustments do not suit you, you can also manually adjust the LED’s brightness using a dial on the camera’s cord. You can also do the same to adjust the webcam’s focus.


The webcam also has an adjustable base and head for more precise positioning in getting your perfect angle. It also has a built-in microphone which is perfect for hands-free audio and video calling. The webcam is great for video conferencing via Skype, YM, AIM and other instant messengers.


Like other top-notch web cameras, this camera does not require any software installations too. You can just plug its cord to your computer’s USB port and you can start using it immediately. However, you can still integrate the camera to other software utilities to use it to capture images or record videos even when you are not using any instant messengers. There are a lot of video capturing/edition software utilities online which you can download for free.


However, if you are looking for a webcam that can record videos at HD-quality, I suggest that you go for Logitech HD C510. The HDE USB webcam can only capture images up to 5 megapixels but C510 can capture up to 8!

Polaroid CIA-1237RC 12MP CCD Digital Camera with 2.7-Inch LCD Display (Red)

It is almost unbelievable how Polaroid is able to manufacture a top-notch camera that has most of the features that one can only expect from an expensive model. Polaroid CIA-1237RC falls in the mid-range price category and yet it can be easily mistaken as a fairly costly digital camera by its physical appearance alone — so much more when one has already known of its sophisticated functions.

One of the most imposing features of CIA-1237RC is its auto-stabilization function which helps users do away from blurred and fuzzy shots due to mechanical tremor. This digital camera also has a “face-following” feature that allows the user to lock to a specific subject even while this subject is moving or is in the middle of a crowd.

Once the subject is caught smiling, the camera automatically takes the picture even without the user ever pressing the shutter button. Well, if these two features still cannot impress you, what do you think of an anti-red-eye feature? Sounds too good to be true for a mid-range camera? Not with Polaroid CIA-1237RC!

The camera also also equipped with a 3x optical zoom feature and if that is not enough, you can even go further by using its 4x digital zoom function. Capturing distant shots will not be much of a problem too because the camera also has a 2.7-inch LCD screen that would allow you to position your shots more precisely. Moreover, CIA-1237RC has a 32-MB internal storage capacity which can be expanded via SD or SDHC cards.

The camera runs using 2 AA batteries which can be charged using a USB cord that comes along the package.CIA-1237RC is also bundled to a software utility called Polaroid PoGo; this utility will help you sort, edit and share your photos effortlessly. It can also connect to the internet for faster sharing to any of your social networking sites.

However, if there is anything that is worth complaining about this camera, it is the complexity of some of its functions. An average user might need to spend some time to be able to really understand how these features work. The batteries are also easily depleted so users are advised to bring a lot of spare batteries with them. But beyond all these, CIA-1237RC is truly a must-have.
