When i use Skype video calls, i don't have a camera hooked up but can the other person still see me?

i use a laptop and i am confused how Skype works. do I need to have a mic and camera and if so what is the best type?

it depends if your laptop has a built in camera and mic which most laptops today have.

you should be able to see it on the top of the screen it is a small black dot and in most cases will light up when in use.

They cannot see you if you do not have a camera. You can get one at someplace like Best Buy for about 20.00.

Any Sony brand is normally good.

Of course you need a camera for the other person to see you. If your laptop has not one inbuilt, you need to connect a external one. For a low quality picture, a cheap one is enough. For a better picture get a HD type camera.
