A killer tip for getting best quality using the built-in HP notebook webcam
This is one of the easiest, most effective tips for getting the best webcam quality from your 1.3 MP built-in web camera.
In this example, lets say that you're interested in recording a video of a subject in motion. Ordinarily, using your HP's built-in web cam for this type of task is not the most desired method.
Here's what I suggest:
First, grab an office chair from around the house or from a friend. Before continuing, there are a few details concerning the chair that you chose. If you want the very best results when using your HP laptop webcam, make sure your office chair:
1. Has no arm rests (armless)
2. Is on wheels or castors
3. 360 degree swivel motion

Simply place your HP Pavilion laptop on the chair with the web camera facing forward. Now press the record button, get behind the chair using the back of the chair as a steering wheel. Just like the professional camera men of the film industry, you're using the chair as a sort of stabilizer which prevents any unwanted camera movement.

The end result is a nice smooth video with 360 degree camera control. When done properly, the office chair, and yourself will be completely unoticable in your captured video clips. Playback will be so smooth that your friends and family will demand to know your secret.
To maximize the effectiveness of this HP Pavilion webcam tip try experimenting with different types of floor surfaces. For example, any smooth surface like a gym floor, a department store tile floor, or even a basketball court can produce an even higher quality effect sometimes making the impression that the laptop web camera is floating.
