CamLords.com was created in 2011 from the makers of Streamate.com [review]. The company behind the sites prides itself on featuring live webcam models streaming direct to you from their homes and studios around the world. You can chat live with the performer and direct the show!
If you have used Streamate previously you may well recognise some of the girls and things will seem rather familiar. You see, Camlords uses the same models and site structure as Streamate although when you first visit the site you may not immediately recognise the connection.
The website and the content
The layout is attractive and simple, which makes it extremely user friendly very easy to navigate.
The home page has the usual quick log-in screen for your convenience in the top navigation bar, along with a quick jump link to new models. Here you will also find a search box to locate exactly what you’re looking for, or you can choose from the 24 category links below it. Categories include: Anal, Asian, BBW, Big Tits, Bondage, Co-eds, Couples, Ebony, Granny, Group Sex, Hairy, Housewives, Huge Tits, Latina, Lesbian, Mature, Petite, Pornstar, Teen 18+, Toys, Gay, Transexual, Pregnant and Feet Fetish.
Below the categories are large thumbnail previews of all the different models (40/page default). I found that the thumbs tended to be fairly poor quality however this is a minor grumble.
There are literally tens of thousands of models to choose from, however, the amount of chat hosts that are online greatly depends on the category you’re in. For example, the Granny category has over 200 models, with 14 online at the time I reviewed the site. The Couples category has over 2,500 hosts with only 21 online, so it really depends on which category you’re interested in.
Using this page as a starting point, simply choose which category you prefer, or look through the model previews. If you’re looking for something more specific, there’s a list of popular search links on the bottom that are more specific (femdom, squirt, etc.) or you can simply use the search feature to find models that perform that niche.
When you choose your category, or get to the results of your search, you’ll notice that those who are online are always at the top, which is much easier than having to search through all the models to see who’s online. The sash on their thumbnail will let you know if they’re online, offline or in a party. If the sash says “party”, they are online, but in a private show at the moment with other members. Party means you take the girl private but you share her affections with others however it’s cheaper per minute.
There are also icons on the bottom of each thumbnail showing their rating and whether or not their cam is in HD.
Live chat Rooms
To start viewing, simply click the image of the model you’d like to view and you’ll be taken to their free live cam with their personal profile underneath. You can view any cam on camlords.com for free however after a period of time your viewing will be interrupted and you will be asked to register.
Even as a guest you are very likely to see nudity, sex and masturbation however you may find viewing as a guest restrictive.
The cam quality is amazing. In fact, most of the cams I viewed were in HD. Options include: refresh, video settings (brightness, hue, contrast and saturation), volume/mute, from HD screen size, the ability to enlarge or reduce the screen, and a button to Give GOLD to the model. You can send messages as a guest however you are uinlikely to get a reply unless you join.The chat interface is very easy to use, and allows you to choose the font you want to use along with the size and color. There’s also an emoticon button and a button that’ll make your chat visible or invisible to others.
The profile pages are pretty in depth. There’s basic profile info (age, country, etc.), appearance (measurements, height weight, cup size), features like HD and language spoken. There are also blurbs about their turn ons, expertise and information about their shows. Tabs on the top allow you to view their pictures, videos, member comments and their schedule. I think the schedule tab is an awesome feature. If they’re not online or in a private show, you’ll know when they’ll be online next.
Registering an account at CamLords.com
Registration is fairly simple. They ask for a valid e-mail address (your password will be send here), the user name you’d like, name, address, etc. They do require a credit card (for verification), but you won’t be charged unless you enter a paid area that’s clearly marked. When you get to the 2nd screen, you’ll have to choose which credit card you’ll be using to verify your account with (Visa, Discover, etc.) then you’ll be taken to a 3rd screen to enter your credit card info. Once you’ve entered everything, it’ll give you your password immediately on the following screen and a link to “start browsing now”.
After registering, I was able to chat with all the models, and they were all very friendly. Private chat rates vary by model anywhere from $1.99–$4.24/minute, and yes, you are notified when you’re about to enter the paid areas. You also have the option to get full access to every model’s videos for $14.99/mo, as well as mobile notifications when your favorite models log on to the site.
At the bottom of the video window, alongside the refresh, volume and screen size tabs are options to give Gold or enter private chat. Both of these two options will automatically mean your credit card (used during registration) will be charged. The price is clearly marked.
One nice feature I noticed is that on registering they automatically do a speed test to determine your internet connection and supply video based on this. This means you can access the highest quality webcam video for your connection speed.
Camlords.com has SO many models to choose from and lots in HD. The layout is extremely easy to navigate, categories were found quickly and easily, and after registering for free you have access to free live chat with all the models. Prices are within the norm, but some models are a little more pricey for private.
I found the quality of the chat hosts to be above average, some of the cam girls available were real stunners. most, if not all of the girls seemed to be amateurs (ie; not professionals).
Some of the live shows were great, many of the hosts use cameras that can zoom in on wet pussies and get you much closer to the action.
