wxCam is a lightweight application that allows users to record video or take snapshots from their computer or laptop built-in webcam. The recorded video will be saved in the avi format (uncompressed format); can be changed in the preferences window. wxCam comes with some interesting video effects including the ability to adjust video colors, adding negative color effects, mirror effects, blur video, etc.
