What Equipment Cam Models Need
In order to become an adult webcam model, you’ll need some equipment first. There’s a very good chance that you already have everything needed in order to get started. If not, the computer is the only real expensive part.
Once you’ve got everything you need, there’s no other costs associated to becoming a webcam model and there’s no interview or hiring process. Simply get your account and age verified and start performing! Here’s what you’ll need to get started.
Required Equipment To Get Started Camming
Here is what is absolutely required to get started as a webcam model. Without this gear, you will not be able to perform. There’s also some additional suggested items to have, which will be listed below.
Digital Copy of Photo ID – You’ll need to have a digital copy of government issued photo ID to verify your identity and age. This is a requirement with any site you sign up for. This is due to federal regulation that mandates that every adult media outlet documents the age of the performers.
Computer – You’ll need a computer to perform online. Check with the requirements of the webcam site you sign up for. Most new computers should work fine. If you’re a Mac user, make sure that the software can run on Macs, as some camming sites require Windows to operate.
Webcam – An HD webcam is highly suggested and some camming sites require it. You’ll make more money by broadcasting in HD, opposed to using a stock laptop webcam. Anything that you can do to improve the quality of your feed will ultimately lead to a better show and more profits. If you only have a stock laptop webcam and can’t afford an HD webcam, you can still get started, but it’s suggested that you upgrade ASAP.
High-Speed Internet – You’ll need high-speed internet. Dial-up is way too slow, your shows will be laggy and most networks require a certain upload speed or higher. It’s also suggested to use an ethernet cable instead of wifi, as it’ll make your connection faster and your shows better.
Place To Perform – You’ll also need a place to perform. Most models will either broadcast from their bedroom or a specific room dedicated to camming. It’s suggested that the camming area be well lit, clean and distraction free. You don’t want anyone walking in on you during a performance.
Suggested Additional Equipment and Gear For Your Cam Shows
In addition to what’s listed above, there’s a number of items that are good to have for your shows. You don’t have to have any of these, but they’ll come in handy. If you don’t have all these items, don’t let that discourage you. It’s something that you can slowly acquire over time, or put on your wishlist and let your fans spoil you with them!
Lingerie / Outfits – The more sexy outfits and lingerie you’ve got in your closet, the better. Even though you’ll probably be spending most your time naked or half naked, the ability to change up your looks helps your shows.
Toys – Having a wide range of toys to use in your shows (assuming toys will be used in your shows) helps add variety to your performances. You can change up the toys to break up the monotony. When you’re performing shows, you can always specify that you will Switch toys for X-amount of tokens. This is a great way to earn extra tokens during your shows.
Lube – Lube always comes in handy.
Cosmetics – You’ll want to look your best for every show. Having all the makeup and cosmetic items will help you look your best on webcam.
Lighting – If there’s not good natural light (or unnatural light) where you’re going to be performing, it’ll be worth setting up a lighting system. Here’s a guide on proper webcam lighting.
Props – If you’re planning on performing any shows that require props, you’ll need those items. For example; you can’t do a food fetish show without food or a baby oil show without baby oil.
Wireless Keyboard / Mouse – Having a wireless keyboard and mouse will help you type and work your computer without the awkward wires. This is useful if you show requires that you’re not constantly sitting right in front of the computer.
