The Best Webcam For Beginner Cam Girl

by Alex Shwarz on March 23, 2009 · 6 comments

Every beginner cam girl faces this question – which webcam model is the best? With huge selection of webcams in the market and with various opinions it’s really hard to decide. Another problem is the budget. Many beginner cam girls don’t have much money to spend on webcam. So what is the best balance between price and quality.

First of all don’t get crazy about buying expensive webcam (if you can afford it of course). You won’t really need all those fat features at the beginning. So save a buck for some other stuff you might need. The cheap webcam is not a solution either. If you have some old or “built in” webcam into your laptop don’t assume it would be enough for the beginning.

Many webcam models have confirmed that the best webcam to invest in is Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000.

logitech_quickcampro90001It’s relatively cheap ($75) and its video quality rocks! And it supports zoom feature that your members will appreciate.  Although you will need to spend some time to set it up properly so that you get the best image quality. Some things to consider are:

  • Lightening: try to play with different light set up. It can play a big role in image quality. The more light is better but too much light is not good
  • If you don’t get sharp image especially during close zooms try to turn off the autofocus and RightLight features

Another advantage of this webcam over other professional camcorders is that it looks like regular webcam. If you have some visitors at your house who unaware that you work as camgirl, they won’t suspect anything as opposite to if they see a more expensive camcorder on tripod in your room.

Once you start getting more experience and ready to invest in professional webcam, the best choice would be Sony EVI D100 – CCTV camera:


This camera is being used in most webcam studios and very popular among professional webcam models. It produces high quality color video and you can operate it with remote control. The price is pretty high though (around $880).

If you have any other suggestions about the best webcam for the beginner cam girl please share in the comments.

I am about to start webcam modeling. I am happy to see the Logitech 9000 listed because that is the one I am going to purchase when I get paid from my regular job. I will be working part time at first and hope to make $400-$500 per week for starters. I know i have to learn the business, and the amazing thing is I understand not all days will be great days, but I have the desire and zeal to make this work. I even have longterm plans once I learn the business to help others. On a final note, you responded well to criticism. Keep making positive comments! You are doing a great job. Can we get an updated post? :)

How about selecting a stage/screen name? Also I have viewed a few models videos and they have these cute backgrounds that look like draperies—how does one get one or make their own? Do tell…….

A great new site is WickVid.Com. Goes live on 1.1.11 and pays 50% – 70%!!!
Plus we have a great new feature you won’t find anywhere else which is guaranteed to bring all the boys to the YARD! It is called 3v….it allows models to broadcast across 3 different webcams….giving the viewer a very special show! Check out the demo now!!!

I love the Logitech 9000 I find it is a good start for newcomers into the industry that may have limited funds. Also be mindful if you have a Mac computer and what the cams support as far as operating system!

There are LOTS more better webcams on the market now, which are better than the Logitech and the Sony one (which no camgirl I know uses).

Here is a link to the list:
