Nood.tv – New Camgirl-Run Camsite: Information and Review


nood tv get started

There is an exciting new camsite on the horizon that promises to be better than Myfreecams and Chaturbate and aims to disrupt the camming industry. Twitter is abuzz with the news of the soon-to-be-launching Nood!

Nood.tv promises site features that are geared toward the well-being and success of models, not site owners. Its creator is Chloe Lewis, who is a cam model herself, who decided to take on the massive task of creating a brand new cam site. Nood will be rolling out its Beta version later this month and inviting a handful of models to test out the features and give feedback, to then open it up to the public.

One of their biggest draws is their payout percentage – 70%+(!) according to their official Twitter (NoodApp). This is the highest payout percentage of any cam site, as far as I’m aware.

Another major draw is the broadcast quality: 1920×1080 up to 8mbps with 320kbps audio, so your viewers can watch you in very high definition. You will also be able to stream not only via webcam, but also with a DSLR camera! (Along with an OBS or Wirecast software, if you want to use them). No other camsite has this functionality!

More Features of Nood.tv:

 

  • Two options for streams: General and Restricted. One for non-sexual chatting, painting, playing music, etc. and the other for sexual streams including nudity and cumshows.
  • Models can buy tokens. You are not restricted to only receiving them, and you can also re-tip those tokens to another model!
  • You will be able to resell your recordings right on the site – A great way to make passive income off your cam shifts!
  • No ads, and an aesthetically pleasing design.
  • Will have bots and apps, just like Chaturbate.
  • There will be chat room admins and moderators, who can moderate the chat while the model is busy and have the ability to ban users.
  • No camscore, unlike MFC, and models will be shown in chronological order.

 

To get started with Nood, head over to their main page to sign up. You will not be able to stream yet until the beta testing is complete, but you can reserve your username.

All in all, I am VERY excited to see a new camsite with some incredible features and pleasant and highly responsive support. Look for Nood to make some serious waves in the camming world!

Camgirl Lighting Tips – 3 Best Lights for Camming

In addition to having a great webcam, you need to remember that lighting is a REALLY important factor in looking your best on cam (and making that cash!). If you ever see a girl who’s ‘glowing’ and looking beautiful and clear, it’s likely that she is using special studio lightsNo worries, they are not that complicated and can be bought on Amazon! So, what are the best lights to use while camming? This diagram shows that you ideally need 3 lights to light yourself with, also called the “3 Point Lighting Setup”.

LIGHTING SETUP

 

I would say that 2 specialty umbrella lights (“key” light and “fill” light) and your room’s overheard light or sunlight from a window (“back” light) will be enough and will give you a GREAT advantage over someone without extra equipment. Don’t overthink it too much, just make sure you’ve got a few umbrella lights illuminating you.

Here is my Number 1 suggestion for lights to use on cam:

 

LimoStudio-Photography Photo Portrait Studio 600W Day Light Umbrella Continuous Lighting Kit

As I mentioned, the difference will be amazing! These umbrella lights showcase your features, and all the shadows that make you look old, dull and not as attractive will disappear! It’s the investment that will give you the most return for the money.

This kit includes everything seen in the photo above:

  • 2 Tall stands with bulbs & umbrellas
  • 1 Short stand with bulb
  • Umbrella carrying case
  • Bulb carrying case

 

A very popular choice for camgirls are softboxes! They create beautifully diffused light and are used by professional photographers, so you know they’ll be great for cam.

My recommendation is this set by Limo Studio:

LimoStudio 700W Photography Softbox Light Lighting Kit Photo Equipment Soft Studio Light Softbox 24″X24

I would say that the most useful and versatile light (not to mention, easily set up and transported) is a Ring Light (also called the “Selfie Light”)

Ring Light Kit 55W Bluetooth LED Ringlight Lighting with Tripod Stand Dimmable 3200K/5500K

camming ring light

  • 3 Color & 10 Brightness: 14 inches ring light can switching 3 different types of light and match your mood and preferences with 10 brightness levels. It use power-saving LED beads and SMD technology, the soft lighting will make your face and skin more beauty. The circle light comes with a Bluetooth remote.
  • Wireness Remote Control and Phone Holder: Wireness remote control for convenient access to brightness and color temperature settings, channel / group selection, as well as reliable and accurate control over dimming parameters in real time; Bluetooth Selfie remote makes you selfie more easily.
  • Lightweight & Stable Stand: The ringlight is constructed from aluminum alloy, giving it exceptional strength. The ring stand can be adjusted from 38.5cm/15in to 152cm/60in and is very portable to take in anywhere.

Play around with them and you will not regret this purchase. Along with a good webcam, lighting will make or break your camming, and good lighting will help you get started on the right foot! Good luck!

 

⋆ MFC vs Chaturbate: Which Cam Site Should You Join?

myfreecams chaturbate review best camsite

 

Myfreecams has been a popular choice for camgirls everywhere who wanted to make money in a social, hangout type of camsite that didn’t require them to put on extra sexual shows and generally had very few restrictions on what was allowed to be broadcast compared to other camsites. However, in the last few months MFC’s traffic has gone down considerably according to Alexa rankings and the general perception. Multiple unannounced site outages definitely did not help their case, and many girls have been trying out other sites.

myfreecams traffic stats

Chaturbate has been shaping up as a very serious contender for the best camsite on the net, and many girls have been switching to Chaturbate despite having been totally loyal to MFC for years. Diversifying your income is never a bad idea, so trying out different camsites and finding one that works best for you is something everyone should do.

Here is  a comparison between MFC and CB and a review of the pros and cons of each, so you can decide which one is better suited for you.

 

Myfreecams Review

myfreecams vs chaturbate review

PROS

  • Less overtly sexual (although cum shows definitely happen a lot), more social, low key atmosphere in a lot of the rooms.
  • Girls only site. No men allowed on or off camera, which adds to the hangout/social feel.
  • Fairly good and consistent customer service. Not so much lately.
  • Payout percentage: An average of about 61.4% of all (gross) money spent. 1 token tipped = $0.05 for the model.
  • Highest earning potential out of all camsites. Guys seem to tip largest single tips compared to other sites. (See my post on the highest tips on MFC). Top girls make $xx,xxx a month. (See my post on how much MFC models make).
  • Few rules and restrictions. One big one is the no camming in public rule.

CONS

  • Outdated user interface, very few useful site additions are made despite girls asking for them.
  • Poor company communication about site downtime, glitches, etc. Girls are left in the dark.
  • Popular rooms are sorted by camscore, which could make it harder for new models to rank well from the start.
  • Lower traffic as of late and no attempt to fix it by spending more money on marketing.
  • Nonexistent Affiliate or Referral Program, aside from their Bring-a-Friend program for members.

Chaturbate Review

chaturbate vs myfreecams review

PROS

  • Traffic and popularity is on the rise = more members in your room to tip you. See the traffic stats below.
  • Allows couples to stream (in addition to guys and trans), which can add to your earnings.
  • Good social media presence and customer service.
  • Payout percentage: 50%+ depending on the value of the token package the member buys. You receive $0.05 per 1 token tipped, like you do on MFC.
  • Lots of useful site updates, including room bots and apps that are really helpful and fun during broadcasts.
  • Rooms ranked by the numbers of viewers unlike on MFC, so in theory, a newbie can reach the top row with a crazy show.
  • Great Affiliate Program that both models and non-members can use for a passive income stream.

chaturbate traffic stats

CONS

  • More sexual atmosphere, you’ll likely have to put on sexual shows to do well on the site.
  • Lower average earnings. Members are not as likely to give large single tips to models as much as they do on MFC.
  • Bans can be frequent due to rule-breaking or even seemingly ‘just because’. Very inconsistent in terms of what is allowed on cam.

⋆ Best Tip-Controlled Vibrators for Camming: OhMiBod vs Lovense

best tip controlled vibrators

There has been a lot of interest in tip and sound-activated toys and using them for cam shows. There has also been talk of them being a scam with girls faking their orgasms and lying about the strength of the vibrations from the tips they get (Particularly on Chaturbate). Hopefully this post will clear this up!

Currently, there are two main companies that manufacture sound-controlled vibrators – OhMiBod (and Lovense. OhMiBod got a lot of hype with their Club Vibe that vibrated with sound, which girls used on cam to have it interact with the tip sound from the speakers. However, Lovense has gone a step above and created their vibrators to respond specifically to tips, which make them the perfect toy for camming. Girls who use OhMiBod toys are not exactly telling the truth when they say that higher tips equal stronger vibrations, but who can blame them? It’s a VERY lucrative setup for making money on cam.

 

OhMiBod Review

OhMiBod was first on the market and a few years ago, and they’ve now come out with a variety of interactive toys. In partnership with Kiiroo (#1 maker of male interactive sex toys) they’ve created two toys that will connect to other Kiiroo devices are are app-activated!

 

OhMiBod Esca 2

  • This interactive G-spot vibrator is fully compatible with one of the worlds’ most renowned sex toys for men: The Fleshlight Launch.It also syncs it to other interactive vibrators like the KIIROO Pearl2.

Buy Fuse

 


Lovense Review

 

Lovense took app-activated vibrator game to the next level by introducing a Chrome extension (in addition the Lovense smartphone app) that gives you full control of how your toy will respond to tips. Eg. If someone tips you 10 to 20 tokens, it will vibrate on a low setting. If someone tips 20-50, it will go higher, for 50+ tokens it will rotate, etc. It’s highly interactive and innovative! It’s also very easy to install and work with and really fun for the viewers. This extension is compatible with Chaturbate, Myfreecams, BongaCams, CamSoda and Flirt4Free.

There are currently 2 vibrators in the lineup and 1 buttplug:

Nora

⋆ Camgirl DMCA Takedowns: Content Protection & Anti-Piracy

cammodel protection dmca
 
This situation is dreaded by any cam model – when you google your name and find screencaps and recorded videos of your camshows online. Worse yet is when they’re reposted to major porn sites. Unfortunately, no matter how well you may try to protect your privacy (by locking down your twitter, blocking certain locations on your camsite), the more time you spend camming, the more likely you’ll find your content illegally reposted online. It’s a terrible situation to be in, because you feel like you have no control, and as these images spread, they may be found by your friends, family, or coworkers and cause a lot of heartache.

 

So, How Exactly Can You Remove your Content?

Some cam sites offer DMCA takedown services for camgirls, but they are only somewhat effective. For example, Myfreecams uses a service to help you take down the videos by having you look for and submit the links to them, which they’ll then follow up on on your behalf. Only some of these sites will actually take down your content and the majority will ignore it and will continue to host your stolen pics and videos.

That’s where Cam Model Protection comes into play.

 

cammodel protection

Anti-Piracy and Privacy Protection for Camgirls

It’s a service that will remove…

  • Illegal downloads
  • Videos on tubesites
  • Search engine results

Here is what they say:

“By using Cam Model Protection you will be using the latest technologies to locate and remove your pirated content quickly. By monitoring the internet 24/7 we locate your stolen content within no time and send DMCA takedown notices to file hosting sites, tube sites, search engines and ISP’s that are hosting or linking to your stolen content.”

**Cam Model Protection is the only DMCA takedown service that has been able to successfully remove Upstore links, which are next to impossible to take offline.**

This is an incredible service for everyone who is not having luck removing their content online or is overwhelmed with constantly having to monitor it themselves. It comes with three different packages, and even though it might seem pricey, the peace of mind you’ll get using it is worth it. Here is what they each offer:

You can also do a Free Trial to see how you like the service, which is a great feature.

And best of all, your members can donate it to you by going to this link and purchasing any type of membership package. Click on the Donate button at the top of the page.

All in all, it is a VERY useful and camgirl tried-and-tested service to check out, and I’ve been very impressed with the reviews it’s been getting so far and my own personal experience!

More Security Tips:

Here are some additional tips on how to minimize your exposure and chances of your recordings showing up online. These tips work, but they come at a cost as well – your income potential.

  • Don’t do public cumshows, and do them only in privates or groups, or not at all, so that people recording you can’t see you do them in public chat.
  • Change your cam name often, so that it’s harder for people to search for you. Not the best strategy, but some models swear by it.
  • Don’t have a huge social media presence, including Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Tumblr, so that your photos can’t be spread as easily and you’re not as visible online. Lock down your Twitter and do the same with other social media.

 

Good luck and stay safe!
