Number of Models
There are more than 14,000 registered models on Cams.com, so you can always expect hundreds to be online whenever you visit.
Both Guest and Basic membership options are completely free. Guests can see photos from live chats and check out bios as well as view public galleries. Basic members can do the same, plus interact in non-nude chats, view models’ public galleries and check out fan clubs. Basic members can also add funds to join nude and private chats.
Live chat costs approximately $2.99 per minute, but the price varies according to the credit package you purchase and the webcam model you choose. There are usually excellent discounts, but you can enjoy relatively inexpensive chat shows even if you don’t like to watch the same model over and over again. As always, the price of a live chat depends on many factors, this will give you a general perspective:
- Private 1 on 1 video chatting costs approximately $3.99 per minute on average, but there are chat rooms which cost less
- Public Video Chat – this is the same idea as a private video chat, only with additional members sharing the experience with you. This costs between $0.99 to $5.99 or a little more, depending on the model.
- Spy Cam Mode, where you can see another user’s show, costs $2.99 per minute
- Group Live Shows are offered for a special fixed rate of $9.90 for the first 10 minutes. If the show continues after this time and you feel like staying, you will be billed $0.99/minute.
- Party Chat rates are available between 3:00 and 6:00pm and they are only $0.99 per minute
Usually on adult webcam sites the more you buy the less you pay. On Cams.com this is not true, credit goes for a standard rate of $1, no matter how many you purchase. These are your options:
- Standard Packages
- 250 + 100 free tokens: $26
- 500 + 100 free tokens: $50
- 1000 + + 100 free tokens: $99
- 1500 + 100 free tokens: $150
- High-roller Packages
- 2000 + 100 free tokens: $198
- 3000 + 100 free tokens: $297
- 4000 + 100 free tokens: $396
- 5000 + 100 free tokens: $495
- 10000 + 100 free tokens: $990
- Credit Cards: Visa and MasterCard
There is also a limited offer for first-time signups: you can get the lowest price package (100 = 100 free tokens) only for $12.
Cams.com offers members all kinds of shows. You can watch 7 types of live performances: Cam 2 Cam, Free Chats, Private Chats, Nude Chats, Tipping Show (you can spy on others’ private shows with the host for a set amount). Many webcams streams are HD and of course, all of them have audio. There’s a mobile site and you can find recorded shows as well.
Paying for Videos
"Videos" are prerecorded live chats and shows. The quality of these depends on the models, but you can usually find nice clips that are worth your time and money. Watching a recorded live chat session is not cheap starting at $4.99, which is pretty pricy for a service that is really no match for an actual 1on1 live show. You can also purchase photos and albums too.
Top Admirer and Fan Club Cost
It’s always nice to join a model’s fan club, this too comes with a price. Joining a performer’s Fan Club is $14.99 for one month only or $10.99 per month for 3 months (billed at approximately $32.97). This will give you access to 10% off the model’s live shows and free access to her recorded videos.
As for becoming a Top Admirer, the model must have a minimum of 200 tokens in Tips and Virtual Gifts before the benefits (free access to the model’s pre-recorded shows and premium content) are available to Admirers.
- Free Chat Rooms
- Buzzmode shows at $0.10 per click
- $15 in Free Credits for New Members

Cams.com is a veteran video web cam website, but surprisingly, there are few exclusive features. Sure, you still get all the standard options, but there is nothing that’s really unforgettable or a "must-have".
- Photo Galleries – Featuring the webcam models doing all sorts of interesting things.
- Instant Notifications – Which tell you when a specific cam host is online.
- Videos – Basically the same as recorded shows that you can watch on your own free time, for a price.
- Members’ Bio Pages – Where members are free to upload their personal information.
- Favorite List and Recently Viewed – That includes webcam models you like and want to watch again.
- Fan Club – See above. Gives you special discounts for specific hosts and their online content.
Video Chat Features
- Cam 2 Cam – View a webcam performer while you too are visible on your webcam. You MUST have a webcam for this option.
- HD web Cams
Users who find the desktop site cumbersome and want to continue chatting with their favorite webcam models “on the go”, can use the Cams.com mobile version. It’s pretty professional and can be accessed from any smart phone.
The Cams.com models’ profile pages could possibly be more organized. They are full of useful facts, but they look as unorganized and the information isn’t really listed in any clear fashion. The data you can find on their personal pages include:
- About the Host – Some general information added by the model about herself.
- Awards the Webcam Host Received
- Number of Fans
- Turn-Ons and Turn-Offs
- Physical attributes - physical features, ethnicity, etc.
- Kinks and Fetishes
- Unique Physical Traits – Tattoos, for example.
- Live Show Previews, these are snapshots taken from private shows. Not especially wild, but they give a good indication of what the model really looks like.
- Links to Private Chat, Fan Club, Recorded Live Shows and Cam Show Pictures. As the profiles are not very organized, these are sometime hard to find, so to save you the trouble of looking, we will tell you that they are located on the left side, right above the "My Schedule" section.
- Superbuzz – a special token boost you can send to the model, to make sure she pays special attention to you
- You can spin the Wheel in certain performers’ rooms, and the wheel can land on special performances like ass shaking.
- You can buzz the performer’s toy provided she has one at hand – or somewhere else.
- What surprised me is that they make it really hard to leave a model’s room – you have to confirm with a click that you want to leave, and even after that, the site can loop you back into the performer’s room. Which is fortunate if you really liked the model in the first place. If not, keep clicking.
It’s not hard to find your way around on Cams.com, and all the important locations are clearly marked. The top bar lists:
- Online Models
- Join Now
- Member Login
- Various Model Categories
And really, that’s all you need to get started.
Models can be searched for according to specific categories, features or via the free search option. Just about any criteria can be searched for, either through the list of popular categories or through the more specialized search tool that can easily be reached through the "search" box.
You can also use the Filter tool, which is a quick way of locating models of a specific type. You’ll find it to the left of the live chat room main page and can simply click on whatever category that interests you, to narrow down the results.
This is where the site gets pretty laconic and after all the convenient ’Contact us!’ buttons on other sites, I had to dig deep to find any kind of contact option. Which is as follows: „Contact us at 888 575 8383 (US toll free), 0800 098 8311 (UK toll-free), 1800 954 608 (AU toll-free) or 1 (669)208-0370 (worldwide).” That’s all.
FAQ pages do not exist anymore. Fortunately, it’s highly unlikely that you will get lost on the site.
Cams.com is only in English, Spanish and Chinese, but the models speak many other languages. Models speaking the following languages can be found, but it doesn’t guarantee that the model of your choice will speak your preferred language:
- Chinese (Mandarin)
- Chinese (Cantonese)
A professional webcam site that features all the live shows you could want.
Tons of basic features such as galleries, recorded shows and HD webcams.
Lacks the basic necessities of a cam site: thorough search options and feature lists.
At first, feels like the only performers you can watch are those listed right on the home page.
Takes some digging around to figure out all the options.
Private room streams can take over a minute to load.
