    Webcam

    I'm the proud new owner of the ASUS TRANSFORMER TF300T and love it! However, there's a problem. When I use SKYPE I can see the person I'm video calling perfectly but the quality of the picture from my Tablet is very poor. Will I need to buy a webcam and, if so, which one's best? Also, would I need special software to I link it to my Tablet? Excuse all the lay person's terms but I'm not an expert with computers. Hope you can help me. Thanks.

    Welcome to the forum. Do you have the dock that attaches to the TF 300? If so if will have a USB port and you can probably pick up a better webcam from Bestbuy but you'll need to make sure that it will operate on an Android ICS OS.

    You may have to do some research on Google to see if such a webcam exists as I'm to sure. Good luck!

    Welcome to the forum!

    I have used the front facing camera (1.2 MP) via Skype as well as Talk. The picture is quite clear, unless I have upload bandwidth speed issues.

    Run a speedtest (SpeedTest.net app). See what your download and upload speeds are. If it is less than 1 Mbps upload, it may cause quality issues for your picture quality.

    Also, an external webcam is not going to help, there are no drivers. You could also try the front facing (8 MP 1080p) camera to see if that improves your quality. I doubt it will.

    Do you mean the rear facing 8mp camera? I guess she could try skyping backwards just to see if whoever she is talking to could see her better even though from the back side of the tablet she wouldn't be able to see who she is talking to but at least she would then know if the problem is camera quality or not.

    I was so gonna suggest that, and I see you've beat me to it.

    I got the idea from The Chive's frequent photo essay of people taking self-portraits with their camera phone in a mirror...
    TF101 B70 series, USA running Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3, rooted. 64gb microSDXC, keyboard dock with 32gb microSDHC in an adapter
    Dell Streak 7 running Honeycomb 3.2, rooted. 64gb SDXC. Mainly used as a music player.
    Virgin Mobile Optimus Slider, rooted -- frequently used as WiFi hotspot. 16gb microSDHC.
