MICROSOFT LIFECAM NX3000 DRIVER DOWNLOAD

The webcam connects to your computer via USB, with a spring-loaded clip specifically designed for notebook lids. This renders the NX a lot less desirable if you happen to prefer a different IM application. Apart from an injection of ‘added integration’ for specific Microsoft applications, we’re afraid the answer is next to nothing. Cons Below average in dim lighting, certain features only work with Windows Live Messenger. In stark contrast to the bloated, feature-logged LifeCam VX , the NX is a fairly basic webcam that keeps the bells and whistles to a minimum. On the plus side, we were quite impressed by the noise-cancelling microphone, which filtered out background noise with considerable success.

Diving into the Lifecam software uncovers a variety of sliders for picture optimisation; offering marginal improvements when tweaked. On the basis of these two offerings, it would seem that Microsoft has a Jekyll-and-Hyde attitude when it comes to balancing its products, but we won’t hold that against them.

In stark contrast to the microssoft, feature-logged LifeCam VXthe NX is a fairly basic webcam that keeps the bells and whistles to a minimum.

Basically, while the NX provides decent enough video, most in-built notebook cams will be able to match it in the quality stakes, which doesn’t exactly make it essential. It can also be used to capture still images at x pixels.

The webcam connects to your computer via USB, with a spring-loaded clip specifically designed for notebook lids.

Our only reservation concerns the oversized video call button, which we frequently pressed without mircosoft while repositioning the device. If your notebook is already equipped with an inbuilt camera there’s very little reason to consider this purchase.

Apart from an injection of ‘added integration’ for specific Microsoft applications, we’re afraid the answer is next to nothing.

Colours remained sharp and accurate in bright environments, but degraded quickly in dim lighting, with noise quickly coming to the fore. On the plus side, we were quite impressed by the noise-cancelling microphone, which filtered out background noise with considerable success.

The head of the cigar-shaped device can also be swivelled through 45 degrees to achieve an optimum angle. The program also allows you to capture video, audio or picture stills and then send your recordings via e-mail.

All up, we have very few qualms about the design of this webcam, which is small, stylish and functional. Bottom Line The Lifecam NX performs its primary function — and little else — to middling effect. Setting up the device is a relatively straightforward process; involving the installation of the Lifecam software and — in the unlikely event that it isn’t already installed — Windows Live Messenger.

Pros Good sound quality, sleek and functional design, affordable price. As such, several tools and features are tailor-made exclusively for Live users, such as the dedicated call button and photo-swap options. While this is below other models we’ve looked at recently, such as the QuickCam Pro for Notebooksit should be noted that the NX is slightly cheaper. I need power and lots of it.

Cons Below average in dim lighting, certain features only work with Windows Live Messenger. In terms of video mucrosoft, the NX performed averagely for a webcam in this price range.

Microsoft Lifecam NX-3000

These days, a webcam needs to be pretty damn special if it hopes to find permanent residence on your notebook. After all, most portable computers now come equipped with inbuilt cameras of their own, rendering most webcam peripherals completely superfluous. The Lifecam NX performs its primary function — and little else — to middling effect. This renders the NX a lot less desirable if you happen to prefer a different IM application.
