What webcam does everyone use for WDA and are you happy with it?
Like the title says, I'm looking to get into the online game here in the next few weeks and was wondering what yall's opinions were. Thanks!

The quicker yall respond the quicker yall get to whoop me and inflate your egos!

Works very well not had any complaints on here from who ive played so far and my board is in a area with low light. It has a stand/ 360 swivel and auto focus, would recommend although does cost a bit more than most.

i just use my phone galaxy note 3 and a webcam app called epocam. I have a plug in workers light pointed at board on a shelf in my kitchen with the phone positioned just above it.

Ive had a few nice comments about it being nice and clear so it does me.

I Dont have a laptop either so I use an app called splashtop 2 on my ipad to mirror my computer in another room lol

I have an MS life cam, forget the model it is an hd version. I never thought I was going to buy another MS product after some crappy mice and keyboards I bought years ago. But I love this cam. With the right program it will do 1080p instead of it's native 720p. Not sure why but their program limits the camera's quality. I just can't figure out how to use the second party program to work with WDA.

I have a HP 3310 HD webcam. I am very pleased with it but I only use it for DODL and WDA it is approved and had no complaints.

Best advice is, go to the links of our games, see which ones you like, ask the player which cam it is & where they got it from, so gives you an idea of which cam is best for you and cost.

Logitech C525 is what I have. But keep in mind, a webcam, no matter how good only plays a small role in the overall quality of what your opponents will see. Lighting is VERY important as shadows are the WORST thing for online darts. So make sure you have lighting that doesn't cast any shadows.

Also, try to have a nice cam position. Placing the webcam overhead or down below is rubbish!!! Try to keep a natural angle that we are used to seeing on the tele. Dead center or slightly above the bull level (5'8) and to the left or right of the board.

There's also no sense in buying a really nice webcam if your computer is junk. It won't be able to process the image as well. So get a webcam that is comparable to your computer. From everything I've seen and heard the single best cam going for online darts is the Logitech C270. It offers a clear pic and doesn't require a massive computer to keep up with the Google Hangout. But if your computer is really nice, go for the better Logitech cam like a C525 or higher.

Important note... turn OFF auto focus!!! You don't need it for online play. It just creates a blurred image for the opponent to see.

Recap...

1. Lighting - no shadows!

2. Cam position - center right of left - no overhead views

3. Auto focus off!

4. Emphasis on all aspects here. Don't worry about just a webcam. I've seen great cams that produce a terrible quality.

5. Rock big averages Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I'm definitely going to have to look into this, you might have just saved me 30 dollars Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I use this exact same one also. Works great and only paid like $20 for it.
