CAM4 review

Summary: CAM4 offers you worldwide amateurs in various categories, all live and willing to chat and do what you want, for a decent price that matches up well to other cam sites. Girls, guys, couples, trans, solos, hardcore and all kinds of shows are there with a wide range of models. It's easy to use, technically fine and gave me no technical issues. It's also very interactive and even lets you be a performer if you want to.

First impression

Instead of finding just one set of cams to view with one theme, you can find all sorts of fun at CAM4. There are actually four main sections, girls, guys, couples and trans, and there are plenty of amateur performers listed in each one. Members can sign-up for free and receive 50 tokens, view who is online, join fan clubs and send gifts, pay to go in deeper, chat and view, and even apply to be a cam model yourself.

Our opinion

Intro
You can choose any of four areas and flit between each one at CAM4. So, if you're bi, it's going to be fun, if you only want girls, it's going to be fun and if you want guys together or straight couples, straight guys for gay eyes, girls together and even trans models you've got it all here. It's easy to handle and has all the technical features you expect from a cam site, and you only pay for what you see, though there is a lot you can do for free as well.

I was struck by the number of performers (1,200 online when I was there on a Thursday morning) and also struck by their locations. There are girls from all over the globe, and you have lots of filter options to use, and plenty of technical help. The site also featured VR cam shows if you have the goggles, and many of the performers have galleries. These are all amateur girls and guys, and so you get a huge variety of models.

I did do some research and found that not many other reviewers had reviewed CAM4, and there were a couple of disparaging forum and online comments about the site. Each to his own, and I found no hassle with it and got on really well.

Models
A quick count of who is available showed me the following: 422 female performers, 681 guys, 120 couples and 71 trans models, with the site showing me 1,280 online right now when I went in and then, a few minutes later, 1,200 - so it looks like the models are in and out as often as a dick at a party full of willing virgins.

A set of handy filters lets you find models from all over the place. The list I was looking at had defaulted to 'English', but these guys and girls weren't just from England. I guess that meant they read and write in English. I tried other languages but didn't find anyone who spoke Greek, for example, so you may not always strike lucky, but then it depends on who is online and when. You're also able to filter by ethnicity. The models were a big mix with some 18 + teen performers and some over 40, some fat and BBW, hunky guys with big dicks with their wives, some slim and cute girls, others more 'amateur' and there were Latinas and Caucasian, and black models, plus some Asians.

Technical things
You find a page of models, and there are 60 sample shots per index page. These give you the models name and a country flag and also their orientation. Then you click through to their viewing page and find a decent sized screen which runs the live cam. I wasn't sure if these really were what was happening now or short recordings. You have a profile for each model, and on the right, you can see the line of chat and comments that's going on so you can see if you are alone or not. Nothing so far had cost me anything and when I signed up, I was given 50 tokens to use.

When you want to see something other than the model sitting, smiling, maybe playing with her/himself, you have to put in your tokens. There's a 'dice' feature which you click to say what you want to see; finger, play with dildo etc., and you can play 'roll the dice' and be random. You can also request a private show, but then things start to cost tokens.

Other features on the live show pages include: send a message, full screen, enhanced chat and multi-cam. You can send tips and gifts and add the performers to your list of favourites. It looks like the streaming screen works fine, though you may need things like Java and/or Flash to stream, but there are links to support if you have any troubles.

Extras
Some models have galleries, and I found a few with more than one gallery. These were posed shots from, I assume, cam shows of the past and the pics I found came down at 1,024 x 576 in size. Image sizes vary though, and so do the numbers of pics a model has in their gallery. The site also offers some VR shows by the look of it, and there's an Explore drop-down where you can check out trending tags and shops, fan clubs and Gold CAM4.

Cost
You register for free, and I was given 50 tokens when I did this. If you want to upgrade there are three plans, and you'll see the links for Gold memberships; Exclusive, Limitless and Intimate. Limitless seemed to have the most additional features and came in at 19.99 per month. Actually, having looked at all three plans, they all came in at 19.99 per month with discounts if you signed for three months or a year, and all included 100 free tokens. Worth looking at in detail.

Conclusion

CAM4 might have had some mildly bad press of late, but it sure looked fine to me. Loads of varied amateur guys and girls and trans models, lots of interactive options, good filters and search functions, plus an easy to use interface that was also good quality, with decent quality playback and even some pics in galleries. It's what you make it, and the more you pay, the more you will see, but there are well-priced monthly plans if you want to have a more permanent and unrestricted membership - and that may well be cheaper than paying per minute.

Competitors

In the old days, live cam sites were clunky and slow and costly. Now there is more competition there is also better quality and more choice. CAM4 measures up well against the biggies like I'm Live and others, and it's a neat and intimate site that offers wide variety.

However, you may want to specialise, in which case Live Jasmine might do it for you. This is mainly Asian themed with hot amateur girls and comes in at a decent price. It also has all the interactive features you want from a cam site.

Chaturbate is taking over the world of cams and chat pretty steadily and has done well in our review section for Live Cams/Chat where you can find many others. Like most, it's free for basic use, and you pay as you go or create a planned membership. It's good quality, and there is plenty of variety in the model line-up.

My Free Cams does indeed give you something for free, and you can sit and watch what's going on without having to join in. It's a large site and recently scored well in its review. It has over 1,000 girls, guys, couples and trans models, a bit like CAM4, so you've got your work cut out trying to decide which one is best for you.
