Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 42LY761 does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as this television also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other televisions which also have a built-in camera to this TV and we think the UN46ES8000F, or the UN46F8000BF both from Samsung are also worth considering.
