camera turn off by itself

By CMHCustomer1

from CMH

Comments about Sony Skype Camera and Microphone:

When it works, its good. But lots of time the camera shut offs itself while i was skyping with family and I have to reset the camera many times. Sony seems to be good in inventing but not very good in maintaining or support/update the product firmware.

Comments about Sony Skype Camera and Microphone:

Webcam is attached to my web-enabled Sony flatscreen TV. Sits near modem and wireless router, with very hi-speed signal. The result is a great picture, which my Skype partners have all commented on.

Only downside is I wish there was a way to zoom in on image. The TV remote itself works fine otherwise.

Not limited to Sony TVs

By OsoBud

from Columbia, MD

Pros

  • Very easy to set up. Very good video and sound.

Cons

  • None yet. Have only used one day.

Best Uses

    Comments about Sony Skype Camera and Microphone:

    Plugged web cam into the USB slot of a Sony S790 BluRay player. The player uses WiFi to connect to the internet through a DSL modem. Updated player system software using an iPhone 4 as a wireless WiFi remote, Strongly recommend an iPhone as a remote to get the querty keyboard and cursor. The S790 is connected through an old Sony STR 995 AV receiver to a 2005 JVC DLP TV. Selected Skype, entered ID and Password, chose a Contact, and connected on first try. Picture and sound were great on the JVC and a MacPro laptop on the other end of the connection.

    Bad picture quality on other end

    By Shaji

    from NJ

    Comments about Sony Skype Camera and Microphone:

    Picture quality is too bad on the other end. Looks like it sending a very low quality video over Skype, even if we see good quality video in our TV.

    Very good Sony Skype Camera

    By LBJ2

    from Orlando, FL

    Pros

    • Very good video and audio quality

    Cons

    • A little too expensive

    Best Uses

      Comments about Sony Skype Camera and Microphone:

      This camera works very well with the Sony Skype app. I am very happy with the video and sound quality particularly since this camera has to cover about 14 feet between my TV and the seating area ( unlike the regular PC webcam set-up where you sit inches away from the webcam). I tried to to use a few of the less expensive compatible webcams and while they worked-- they seemed to struggle to keep focus over the distance in my room. I think the higher quality but more expensive components like the Carl Zeiss lense and built in CMOS Sensor may be the reason for the superior performance of the CMUBR100 over the other Sony Skype compatible webcams that I tried.
