In this article, Observer123 discusses how using our Cam to Cam functionally can greatly improve the overall experience of a private with a model, for example, how talking to the model is better than typing. Observer123 provides tips for having a better conversation, addresses privacy concerns, suggested webcams, and how to set up Cam to Cam.
Using a cam can greatly improve the enjoyment of privates. Models generally love it when a fan uses a cam, as it means they don’t have to use their imagination. I’m sure others can further elaborate on the virtues of cam to cam. The following is more of a technical guide from the point-of-view of a non-US fan of the site.
One advantage in that you can talk, so there is no need to type! However, you may get feedback or echoing if the cam is on, so it might be better to use headphones, which is not quite as convenient, or have the model call you. Note that when using phones, most such models are based in the US, and so most are only able to call within the US and maybe Canada. However, it is possible to acquire a (US) phone number through Skype, and have the model call that phone number; naturally, you have to have Skype on. You can also set up the number so that it calls your phone directly, although this costs you as the phone call is transferred from Skype to your phone, so remember to purchase Skype credit. Another tip to beating feedback is to mute the sound in the bottom right of the screen when you are in private, if the model calls you.
Something to remember is that if your voice is recorded in a private, then you may want to ensure that the private is not shared, especially if you are concerned about privacy and/or mention personal information. You can change whether a private is shared in your “Shows” section; this is in the top right hand corner of the page.
As to which webcams are best, you do not have to use a Sony EVI. These are the top of the range cameras, and obviously very expensive. Webcams that typically come with laptops aren’t very good, and it is not worth buying an ultra-cheap webcam, either, as the images will be grainy. A good webcam to use is the Logitech Pro 9000, which is of reasonable cost and some models even use that one! If you shop around, you should be able to find a good price. For instance, the webcam I mentioned currently sells for around ? 33 (roughly US $50) on the UK Amazon website.
To set up the webcam, follow the instructions provided with the webcam. It is quite easy to do so. You can test the camera image using the “Cam to Cam Chat” option at the bottom of the main F4F page, but remember to switch it off before you actually take someone private.
I hope this has been helpful, and have fun! – by Observer123
