Number of Web Cam hosts
The number of host is around 44,600, but this really is estimation because chances are that while we had this conversation a few extra hundreds signed up. That being said, many are offline or not active at all, and in many days there will be no more than 300 relevant adult performers online.
Cam Contacts varies a lot in price, because the hosts really do decide how much they charge. It is a bit difficult to evaluate cost with so many options from so many countries, but competition must be healthy for consumers because prices here are very low. And believe me: When I say low prices, it really is an understatement. On Cam Contacts you can easily find video chat rooms for as low as 0.65 per minute, which is literally unheard of. But before you jump on this wagon, I have to play the devil's advocate for a second here and confess that while I like this website, it needs some serious quality-check. You can and will find decent and even excellent webcam shows with HQ cams and reasonable audio, but you'll also run in to a lot of junk on the way. That's what happens when the global cams are really open for anyone, anywhere in the world. You get some fun, interesting results and unbelievable prices, but the system is not without its risks. Here is a rough estimation of cost, but really, it's no more than a sample.
- Private chats 1on1 with a women that define themselves as “Not So Shy” is:
- Public Chat - $0.65 - $2.50 per minute
- Private Chat $1.10 -$ 4.99 for each minute.
- Instant Action Cam Shows (the name kind of gives it away)
- Public - $1.70 - $3.00 a minute
- Private - $2.00-$5.00 for a minute
- Group Live Shows - This means that 3 performers or more appear on the screen
- Public - $2.50 - $3.75 per minute
- Private Show - $2.50 - $3.75 per minute.
- Two Women Performing on 1 Webcam
- Public Sessions - $0.85 - $3.00
- Private Shows -$ 1.29 - $4.50
For more specific prices the only suggestion I have is that you go to real live chat rooms and get a better estimation. There are so many options that trying to make an average is really a guess at best.Credit on CamContacts.com
This is a good time to explain a bit about the strange payment system they have on CamConatcts. Here you don't need to buy credit (AKA tokens) that you later on use to purchase live show minutes. Here the sum of each show is deducted directly from your bank account, once you give in your billing info that is. This is called "Continuous Billing", but really all it means is that you're paying for each show according to its length and price. The advantages are that you don't have to pause in the middle of a show to get more credit and a lot let hassle. The minuses are the longer payment approval procedure and of course that you end up spending more due to the lack of restrictions. You do have a spending limit, but it's relatively high and fixed according to your personal account.Paying for Cam Videos
Unlike other websites, where recorded videos are free or cost significantly less than webcam shows, on CamContacts they can be a bit expensive at times. Sure, you can still find plenty for rock bottom prices, but I am telling you in advance: You better check before you start watching. Recorded vids of public sessions are between $0.60 and $4.80 per minute and for private videochat sessions you can be paying anywhere between $0.78 and $6.00.Payment Methods
I wasn't ecstatic to find out that only Visa and MasterCard were accepted here. Sure, they are the most common credit cards on the face of the planet, but I don't see a reason for a website not to accept other major firms like Maestro or even accept Debit.

Don't expect to find many exclusive video chat features on CamContacts. The website is composed of real amateurs and as such relies on whatever features the varied models have, which very often means nothing at all. That being said, with such a huge selection of live webcams online you can certainly find high-quality ones and meet models that do have some nice webcam options. Here are a few examples:User Features
- Photos - Offered both on the profile pages and on the site's archives.

The host profiles on CamContacts are simple but have all the needed information. They could be a bit more interesting and offer more options, but if you're looking for some general info about specific women, this is just fine. The info found on the performers' profiles includes:
- Category - Is the host here “to meet new friends”, “Home Alone”, “Instant Action”, etc.
- Webcam Option (such as HD webcams and such).
- Cam Viewer Ratings.
- General Physical Features - Eye color, hair, etc.

The Customer Support on Cam Contact is certainly one of the most detailed ones ever seen on the net. You can make an inquiry in just about any communication method known to man, and here they are, listed to your convenience:

- Contact via phone - there are a few options for different countries.

Live Cam Contacts Leads the Mobile Chat Revolution
Mobile cams are the next big thing, there is just no arguing this point. Many video chat websites are now advertizing their so called iphone chats and Android webcams, but in many cases it's not much more than false pretences. Let's be honest: Any site that can be seen on PC can also be browsed using mobile phone, but this doesn't mean it has convenient mobile platform. Only a few of the major adultcam communities actually took the leap and made themselves fully cell phone compatible. Guess what? Cam Contacts is one of them. The online web cameras can all be seen in excellent streaming quality and the right size from any smartphone and while I for one wills tick to chatting on my computer (old fashion guy I am), it's great to know this website is moving forward and staying updated.
Pros & Cons
I'd recommend this massive site if for no other reason than because of its endless number of choices. You will never run out of live webcams here and there are so many video chat rooms in every category that it seems as though you can be camming forever. Many chat rooms have fair and even low prices and the new mobile platform is absolutely fantastic.
I wish this website will offer some more guarantee as to the quality of live shows offered by the various hosts. There is no way of knowing what the amateurs really include on their chats and the only real way of knowing that you won't be disappointed is to find several performers that you like and return to their chatrooms again and again.
If you don't mind amateur graphics and a relative lack of interesting features, CamContacts is a good choice. The only edgy thing about it is the mobile webcams, but all the basics are covered with proficiency.
