The 40HFL2829 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other televisions of a similar spec and age to this TV also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other TVs which also have a built-in camera to this television and we think the Samsung UN46ES8000F which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
