Equipment: What Every Camgirl Needs

In order to be a cam girl you need a webcam, a good lighting system, a fairly up-to-date computer and a decent internet upload speed.

The top webcam choices amongst camgirls include the Logitech 9000, the Logitech C920, and the Logitech C615. Notice a theme? The Logitech is king amongst webcam options for good reason; the webcams are high quality, durable and come at a reasonable cost. In the case of the 9000 you can purchase one for under $100 USD. Related to that, you need a decent lighting system in order to portray yourself on cam in as flattering a manner as is possible. Even supermodels need decent lighting!! Heavy shadows and dark rooms do not excite your potential customers, so play around with lighting options in front of the camera until you arrive at an arrangement that presents you best. The most popular lighting system is a ‘three point system’, with one light source positioned to the left, one to the right, and one lighting source directly in front of you. This system evens out unflattering shadows and grants your customers the highest quality view of your private shows together.

In terms of computers, do not try to cam on a netbook, as these types of computers are simply too lightweight to perform well. A powerful i5 or i7 Mac laptop will perform well, as will any decent desktop. Equally vital however is a good internet upload speed. Most internet users are more concerned with download speed rather than upload speed, but since camgirls ‘upload’ their video stream during broadcast the upload speed of an internet connection is most important to our purposes. 1 mbps is generally considered the bare minimum for a decent quality video stream, but a 3 mbps and above connection is ideal.

In order to cam you also need a private space from which to work, or alternatively you can seek out a physical cam studio (location from which several different camgirls who cannot cam from their homes use as their work environment). Physical cam studios either charge a flat rate or take a percentage of your earnings in order to cover the costs of running the physical studio

  1. Hello; here are a few tips for new girls (and for bi-boyz)… Supplies!
    1-Towels, one for under your butt, a couple more for wiping what ever drippy stuff is around.
    2-Wet Wash cloth also close at hand.
    3-small dish with oil/ lube in it… a dish rather than a bottle, so you don’t have to pick it up/ take cap off… just dip fingers and toys in real quick, and continue to play.
    4-Also a bottle of lotion or babyoil… as the dripping onto your body is a nice feature; so pouring oil on you is good…
    5-paper/ pen note pad… write down a tipping fans name/ email/ real name/ postal address. Write down some thing, as taking a screen shot sometimes is too time consuming; as you take the screen shot/ then paste to Paint, then save paint with a name on it… well maybe do both.
    6-Water/ apple cider/ gatoraide in a glass… pretty glass is nice, lifting your arms up to drink is always a nice way to accentuate your nicer curves. Same to with drinking cover-up alchohol… no beer bottles or wine glasses… say you drink sparkling apple cider, or put it in a coffee mug… and you drink Tea!
    7-Hiar brush, lipstick/chap stick… again preening and brushing… lifting your arms up makes your breasts look so nice; move hair off Neck, as many men like the neck kiss/ romantic ear kiss…

    This is Fantasy after all, you are a movie star in your own movie! Be any sexy star you want to be…

    PS: I would suggest not saying you have a husband/ BF/ Lover unless he is a real stud muffin… most fans want to perceive you are available… and will tip accordingly. Say you are looking; trying different things, exploring bi and group play… any thing to get the fan excited, get him to buy you wish list gifts, etc.

    PSS: Have a wish list with many gifts/ price points… I like to buy gifts for my lady friends; more so than just tip toks… I think I have a more bigger impact; and she will remember me more!

    PSSS: You can do it! Chaturbate model Lovely Anne got a 130,000 token tip (=$6,500 dollars in ONE Tip!).

    • Amazon lets you create wishlists that other people can buy items off of without showing them your address. It does show your name however, so I recommend registering under your model name/alias. Many online sex shops have wishlists you can share, but I’m not sure if they will keep your address hidden. I would definitely check out Babeland for that, since they are very discreet (and only sell nontoxic toys!).
