    Depends on your budget/intent but I use the Logitech Cams are good enough for me (mostly because they're cheap and i'm poor :p)

    Doesnt matter to us now does it? :p If (s)he wants one that's good enough :p

    Plenty of uses; just consider long distance communiqu├ęs for example

    webcams are way cool, I dont have one, so I cant recommend one.
    Best way is to maybe check yahoo and look at a few webcams, and if you see one with a good quality picture, just ask them what kind of webcam they are using.
    My favourite webcams to check out are these ones.

    I'd reccomend that you dont get a webcam with a native resolution less than 640x480 .. many webcams are marketed as 640x480 but they are really 320x240 native and interpolated as such :)

    Translation: buy a webcam. Something we've already noted

    Yeah typical creative webcams are 640x480 native... try to stay away from the 640x480 capable ones which are actually 320x240 native :)

    Im going to pick up the Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000. A buddy of mine has it and it works really well. I just have to figure out how I'm going to put the feed onto my web site. Any ideas?

    I'm not sure about that one but I have the Logitech ClickSmart 420 which has motion detection monitoring and allows you to set up web site as well as a few other things. Each part is set up step by step through the Camera Control Centre. Good luck with yours!
