FireCams Review – A Video Chat Site With Potential
FireCams might be new in the camming industry, but it has all the potential it needs to become a leading cam site thanks to its lovely models, advanced search options and great features. In this review, we plan to elaborate on everything it has to offer you focusing on its different live show modes and emphasizing its qualities designed to maximize your user-experience. We'll also relate to aspects such as chat rates, customer support, and anything else you need know to help you make up your mind whether the site can provide you with the type and quality of entertainment you're looking for.
As a guest user, you can watch the models in their public rooms as much as you want. However, take into account that FireCams is a premium cam site. What that means is that as minimal as they may get, clothes will usually cover the girl's intimate parts while they're performing in open chat. To get a model to wear her birthday suit, you'll have to sign up, buy tokens and start a paid-for chat. In addition, some models will mute you while you're in their public room unless you have tokens in your account.

To join a Fan Club, tap on Join My Fan Club on the Model's Bio page. Membership fee is $19.99/month (or $56.97/3 months).
- Buzz Mode - You can spoil your model by pressing anywhere inside her performance window and activate her remote controlled toy for a short but pleasurable buzz. This will cost you a few tokens. If you feel generous, you can double or triple your tip and press on the Super Buzz button you'll see in the upper left corner of the performance window. The model will experience a much more intensive buzz and will be very thankful for that.

Editor's Impressions of FireCams
The cam-to-cam world is bursting at the seams. There are so many premium and freemium sites operating on the web today covering any niche you can think of, from conventional live shows with female models to gay and tranny cam chats. There are sites which specialize in specific ethnicities, like Asian webcam girls, age groups and even kinky live action. Therefore, the inevitable question arises: is there room for another cam site?
Apparently, there is. FireCams is a fresh breeze blowing in the industry. This is not because it provides any novel services you won't be able to find on other online platforms; no one is reinventing the wheel. It's simply in light of its variety of benefits and features offered mainly by top-notch cam sites.
We should start with its model selection. FireCams puts roof over the heads of 700+ stunning models available for cam shows around the clock. These models come from virtually any corner of the world and from all gender groups, including around 40 hot transgender performers waiting for you in their public chat rooms.
We've chatted with quite a few of them in a one-on-one setting, and we can say for certain that when it comes to the quality of the show, most of them were professional broadcasters who knew exactly what to do in front of the cam. But beyond that. They were highly amicable and quite talkative, so apart from watching them without their clothes, we could actually run a decent conversation with them.
As to chatting, FireCams provides you with multiple live show options that match your personal preferences and budget. If you're into an intimate experience, you can opt for a Private Chat. Brace yourself, as things will get hot and heavy faster than you probably anticipate. The girls we chatted with spared no effort giving us wild shows we'll not that easily forget.
Alternatively, if you don't mind sharing your performers with other users, there are two types of group shows available to you. The first is a Party Chat you can choose instead of the private option. The second is a Nude Chat. In both, the performer can, and will, get naked. The big plus of group performances is that they're cheaper, and so enable you to save quite a lot of money, especially if you chat a lot. Besides, sometimes it can be great fun being with other users and seeing how they interact with the model. We ran into quite a lot of funny exchanges when we took part in FireCams' Nude and Party Chats.
What makes live shows really great is their interactive features, allowing you to feel much closer to the performer even though a glass screen and many miles separate you from one another. When it comes to interactive features, FireCams doesn't lag behind its competitors. Most models use remote-controlled pleasure toys you can activate with your tips. You just have to click the screen to stimulate them without taking your eyes of the show even for one second. And, if you want to give your performer a treat, there is a super buzz button for a more prolonged stimulation.
An advanced cam-to-cam apparatus enables you to activate your camera in all chat modes, not only while you are in a private show like with most other cam sites. No other users can see you, so your privacy is protected. Of course, while you're in a free or part chat, don't expect to get exclusive attention from the model despite being with your webcam activated.
Here are the downsides to this: First, most models on FireCams enable c2c, but not all. Second, most who do charge around $1.50/minute for the pleasure. And third, FireCams unfortunately doesn't have mobile c2c, so all the fun of bidirectional video chatting is kept for your computer or laptop.
There are other wonderful features you can expect to find on FireCams. We're mainly referring to recorded private live chats you can access at prices that won't make you go broke. Most performers record their shows, so you have plenty of hot materials to watch. Moreover, joining a model's Fan Club unlocks wonderful features and benefits, significant discounts on private chats in particular.
And, we mustn't forget: FireCams is an extremely easy-to-use cam site. It's a shame that the models' thumbnails don't have a video display, but if you can ignore this flaw, you'll find that navigating the site is simple and fun. Its advanced search options will help you trace the exact type of girl you may want to chat with and the niche around which this chat will revolve. There is a main filter through which you can sort out performers based on their Gender, Orientation, Status (online/offline), Age and Origin (ethnicity). There is also a drop-down menu which presents you with the site's main features and options and chat categories.
The only thing that really bothers us is the lack of adequate payment methods available to members. You can pay for live chats on the site only with credit, debit and prepaid cards and with gift cards. On top of that, the number of card brands the site accepts is limited o Visa and Mastercard. We hope this will be remedied in the near future.
All in all, FireCams puts at your disposal an affordable online platform for watching live shows given by hot and flirtatious cam models. You should definitely give it a try. Chances are you're going to like it just as much as we did.
