Web Cams That Make You Look Prettier


Two new web cams from Asia are promising to make you appear a little less hideous during web chats. The first of the ‘beauty cams’, the Elecom’s UCAM-E1W30TNWH states, “You come out beautiful through this Web cam. Prettier with lighter skin tone!”. This is done by using a special lens which enhances the lighting in low light areas. Furthermore, the image goes through a retouching procedure in real-time.(price: $68)

The second web cam, the Buffalo’s BHC-35H03B, has a beauty mode (I’m not making this up) when turned on, ” a bright spotlight turns on and automatic white balance adjustment kicks in.”

    “This is done by using a special lens which enhances the lighting in low light areas.”

    Well… couldn’t that could be the reason it is special? Not just brightness adjustments.

    yeah just turning up the brightness is a different thing. That brings up ALL the levels, so the darks will be brighter, but the lights will burn.

    This thing just brings up the darks.

    Now if it came with the cybyl shepard blur filter on it….

    The oil on our faces is going to reflect and concentrate back to the camera… and incinerate it.

    Are you all insane? Corndogs suck. I like Fried Chicken, some Kool-Aid and nice, warm apple pie for dessert. Crazy.

    Listen it works..When the lightwaves hit the convexed lense and integrates with the metamorphing sync chip….What am I saying this is a ripoff and Im going to buy one.

    it goes beyond just increasing brightness.

    by subtley raising certain levels of any picture, you can make it look more more beautiful, no matter what is in the picture

    also, several kinds of light (including flourescent and that which comes from a computer screen or bounces off of painted walls) is known to visually have a penetrating effect on skin, making once invisible blemishes seem to appear out of nowhere. that is why we all look really bad in the office under all those flourescent lights. what the special lense does is filter out those specific types of light and wavelengths, then brightening up the signal created by whatever quality light is present, thus achieving a more beautiful final product.

    i don’t even want this product, i think it is silly, but all the people above shouldn’t call things bullshit unless they actually know what they are talking about.
