I have used the Creative Optia web-cam for about 5 weeks now. I find it easy to use and very intuitive. The web-cam itself is rather small and sexy. There and numerous features that sets this web-cam in a class by itself. The photo capture allows you to capture snapshots using the live cam. Video recording allows you to record video clips using live cam. I found pictures and video both to be extremely clear and the smooth. The motion diction feature was a nice ideal, but I couldn’t get to work properly (at least to my satisfaction). The remote monitoring feature allows you to monitor your home of office using the Live cam over your internet browser. As of this writing I have not used it. However it sounds great. There are a couple other features that enhance this Web-cam all in all I thing it was worth the investment. This web-cam and the software suite is rather pricey. There and hundreds of web-cams that are much less painful on the pocket.

Features
Live! Doodling, live interaction!
Just like a real doodling board, you can use your mouse as a digital pen and doodle on your video image. Give your friends a big laugh when they see whiskers coming out of your face.
Video Effects from Creative's Advanced Video FX
Change the face of instant messaging! So you've heard all about video effects - the special effects like snowflakes, masks, eye glasses, hairdos, etc. that you add to your video image while chatting online. But wait, what about having a beautiful backdrop behind you like the Eiffel Tower or Sydney Opera House? Plus, you can morph your image into water ripples, blow bubbles out of your mouth, or simple become invisible. You can do all this with Creative's extensive, free collection of video effects and more.
Exclusive Voice Effects from Creative's Advanced Audio FX
Let them hear you, in so many ways! Don't just doodle and morph your image, do something about your voice! Now with Creative's exclusive Audio FX technology, you can talk like a chipmunk, a robot, or a duck. You can even sound like a 5 year-old kid with squeaky high-pitched voice or an 80 year-old man with quivering low-drone voice. Try it to believe it!
Exclusive Parental Control
Creative stands by safe online chat! Live! Cam Optia offers exclusive parental control that is not found on any other webcam. You can enable parental control during setup. Simply create a login and password so that the next time someone uses the webcam, it requires your password before streaming live video over the Internet. Parental control, smart face tracking, and other software features require the CD software installation.
Greater viewing flexibility and privacy
Live! Cam Optia AF's multi-axis swivel rotates to almost any viewing angle at up to 270°. Plus, the embedded image sensor detects camera rotation at 90º or above, so that your image is always upright. When you need privacy, simply rotate the camera downward (the lens faces down). This will automatically deactivate the webcam without disconnecting it from your PC.
Smooth video, uninterrupted live chat
Experience smooth, full motion 30 frames per second digital video and top quality images with hi-speed USB 2.0 throughput. Live! Cam Optia is also backward compatible and works with any USB 1.1 connection.
Say goodbye to mounting woes
Live! Cam Optia fits easily to almost anything - notebook displays, CRT monitors and flat panel displays. Or simply let it rest comfortably on a table or other flat surface.
