Q: What camera do you recommend with Connect & View?

A: Any camera that connects via USB 2.0, that uses a standard Window’s driver and has video capability.  As a general rule of thumb, if your camera works with Skype, it will work with SuperNova Connect & View.  For optimum results, choose an HD camera with autofocus, delivering 1080p video resolution with automatic low-light correction. To ensure your camera always remains stable, we also recommend using a camera stand.
