The LifeCam HD-6000 is a mid-range 720p webcam from Microsoft. It utilizes the company's TrueColor technology, which aims to produce a clearer image and more vivid color via more precise exposure controls. The webcam records 720p (widescreen) video at 30 fps with auto-focus. Compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and 7, the HD-6000 is optimized for use with Windows Live Messenger, but can be used with a variety of VoIP and other software. The HD-6000 is designed more for notebooks than the otherwise similar HD-5000 and HD-5001, with a more compact design and the ability to rotate 180 degrees in either direction for greater versatility.
