NewCom E-Cam an attractive camera with a street price of about $90.00. It
is very easy to install. The picture quality is quite good for a low-cost
camera. Its printer port interface limits performance.

INSTALLATION. The camera is designed to sit
on a desktop or on top of a monitor. It can also be attached to a tripod
with a standard mount. It interfaces with an ECP, bi-directional or
normal printer port and grabs its power through a pass-through keyboard adapter. It
doesn't need an external power adapter. PS/2 and AT keyboard adapters
are supplied. I would suggest deciding where you are going to put the
camera before installing the cable.
Driver installation was very simple and didn't even require
a reboot. Windows detected the camera when booting up after the hardware
installation and found the software on the CD. The NetMeeting installation
wants to install the Internet Explorer 4.0 even if it is already installed
on the computer. Just let it continue and detect the previous IE install.
