Editor's Note: This review has been removed from our side-by-side comparison because it no longer ranks as a top 10 product.
The original review is below, but check out our current top 10 about Webcams here.
The Digital Innovations Chat Cam HD 1080P is a basic webcam with all the features that you need, but none of the advanced tools that we look for in the best webcams.
Fortunately, it works with any webcam software, but you have to buy the software separately.
That said, we prefer webcams that give you all the tools you need rather than those requiring an extra purchase.
We've come to expect high-definition video resolution in a webcam, and the Chat Cam HD 1080p films in full high definition.
In fact, it is capable of filming in 1080p at 30 frames per second, a smooth frame rate for the human eye.
However, if you have webcam software that has any of these tools built in, you should be able to access these features.
We weren't impressed with this webcam's physical design. In fact, if the cord gets bumped or pulled, it moves the camera.
The webcam's base is among the worst that we tested.
Unfortunately, when you take photos with this webcam, they tend to come out pixelated, since it does not interpolate the images for your computer.
Since the Chat Cam does not come with its own capture software, you must use a third-party program.
