Camcontacts is one of the oldest webcam sites and it looks it too - It's design and chat interface can be most politely described as "dated". The upside to its lack of frills is that it remains one of the most affordable chat sites and still caters to all desires, from non-nude/friends chat to couples to fetish specialists.

CamContacts may have fallen behind its competitors in design, chat functionality and unique features but it does have a loyal customer base in (likely big) part to its (mostly) affordable chat rates as well as offering categories that most webcam sites don't.
The site is known for its fetish hostesses - including a large selection of pro dominatrix, non-nude/friends categories and even the amusing Strip Hi-Lo poker that some performers offer.
When you attempt to start a video chat session with a performer, if there is no Private One2One option available it usually means he/she/they are currently in an Open chat session.
If you are only interested in a Private session, I'd recommend sending the performer a text chat message and ask them to notify you either via text chat or in-site email when they are free.
CamContacts video chat sessions work a tad different than what you may be used to. While there is no free video chat, there is a free text chat that is commonly used to see if a performer is available, ask any questions about their show or just get a feel for a performer before spending money.
There are two options for video chat: Open and Private One2One. An Open chat session means that others can join the show and chat with the performer. Private One2One is exactly what it implies: You are alone with the performer and no one else can join the session.
If you do decide on an Open chat session, once it starts there is a Private button beside the text chat window that allows you to toggle whether your messages can be seen by everyone or just the performer.
Open Chat is typically cheaper than Private One2One chats and start at $1/min.
Private chats can cost up to $5/min, but most performers charge $2 to $3/min.
Note that unlike most video chat sites Camcontacts does not use a credit or token system. Rather, you simply pay-as-you-go, meaning you are automatically charged once you start a video chat session. These charges accumulate and are then billed to your credit card on file. Be careful though as there is no indication when you are in a video chat how much you have spent so far!
CamContacts accepts both Visa and Mastercard.
◊ CamContacts offers a Community Forum open to all members (though it's not surprisingly dated and not very active). Some performers have a personal forum as well.
◊ Offers friends/dating and non-nude categories.
◊ Solid selection of Fetish and Dominatrix hosts.
◊ Some performers offer a Hi-Lo Strip Poker game. It's a Flash-based game that runs while you're in a video chat. See their FAQ for more details.
CamContacts is one of the few sites that still focuses on 1-on-1 private chats and does so more affordably than any of the other major webcam sites. Sure, it's seriously dated in both look and chatroom functionality, but if you still want the intimacy of a private chat session at a reasonable price, CamContacts may be your best option.
