Kinobo B3 Webcam

Forget about flimsy, plastic computer accessories. This webcam is about as sturdy as they come - and with a professional-grade resolution to match!

It also features a built-in microphone for voice chat, and LED lights which can be manually adjusted using a wheel attached to the 1.3m USB lead.

We use these webcams for stop motion animation - they are great at the price (£12.99 each at time of typing). They are well made and very adjustable with a good quality image.

The Film Space | Thinking Film Resources

The Film Space | Thinking Film Resources | talkPrimaryAnimation | Scoop.it

One of the most popular resources from Film Education in the last couple of years has been the Thinking Film discs. Alas, stocks of the discs were exhausted back in March. However all five resources (English, Modern Foreign Languages, History, Primary Literacy and Film Language) are now online so that you can now download them, free of charge.

They are fairly weighty resources so can take a while to download. However, as one teacher who downloaded the resources yesterday said, “they are truly awesome”!

talkPrimaryICT's insight:

You can access not only new moving image resources but the library of over 400 online resources produced by Film Education as well. You can search for resources by title or by subject.

Happy downloading!

Miss Frost's comment, March 7, 2014 6:09 AM
Have you used the Hue webcam as a visualiser? I have heard that they can do that. How's the light and picture quality compared to the Kinobo?
talkPrimaryICT's comment, March 7, 2014 7:39 AM
Hi Miss Frost yes you can use any webcam (or Digi cam) as a visualiser but you need a stand whereas Hue is easy as it's got the goose neck. I think the Kinobo had the better image quality at close range. Neither would be great at a distance as the edge of the field of vision gets blurry. I don't think you can best the Kinobo for value if they are still about £15 on Amazon.
