I am going to purchase my first webcam soon and I was wondering if
there is a "ONE" out there I need to get or if there are several I can
choose from to get the most for my money. Any product advice would be
much appreciated. Keep in mind, I know nothing about webcams!!!
Thanks.

I have the Quickcam Orbit form Logitec. I really like it. The face
tracking is a little goofy. The nice thing is the extension that
allows you to put the camera right in front of your monitor. This
works well because you can put the viewing window of the person your
viewing right next to the camera so that it looks like your looking
right at them instead of like your looking down when you have the
camera on top of the monitor. I also have to say that Logitec is a
great company! I have 2 Logitech cordless keyboards and had one go
belly up and it was out of warranty. Called them and they replaced it
free and did not even require the old one get sent back! They said
that they have been known to honor the warranty up to 5 years!
Something to think About! You also get to talk to a real technician
instead of none or a machine like other companies! That's getting rare
these days! I like my Orbit! Logitech also tends to keep their drivers
and programs up to date regularly.

see it depends on what you want to do with the webcam......

for a good quality all rounder i used a creative pc cam 550

http://www.creative.com/products/welcome.asp?cat=5

its good as a stand alone camera and excellent as a webcam.....

in fact the quality i have not matched with more expensive cameras since...



i now use a smilecam as a main webcam and thats does a really good job and
is functional too....

http://www.smilecam.co.uk/

but for a multi purpose good quality webcam/digital camera that has very
good battery life i would suggest one of the creative range mentioned
earlier

in fact now im interested in getting another one of these multi function
cameras again....
one shame is that creative dont do the 750 model or the 600 .. i wanted to
try these....

maybe ill try the 850 even tho its quite ugly
