hey i ant to buy a web cam, after a little research i've concluded that either "3com homeconnect webcam" or the logitech 4000 pro is best. my main concern is which can get 60fps at higher res, and who can get 30fps at higher res. any info would be great! thanks
Unless you are going to hook your home video camera up to your computer, it's very unlikely you will get anything resembling a spectacular image.
Frame rates are limited by many things... USB traffic, network bandwidth, camera limitations, resolution, etc. You may get 40 or 50 fps in self-view but the minute you put it on line it's likely to drop to 10 or even 5 depending on your bandwidth and server traffic.
My suggestion? Buy a cheapy and don't worry too much about specs. The in-use difference between a $30.00 cam and a $150.00 cam is $120.00, and that's about all.
look for the one saying CCD in the specs, the others are lower quality.
the ones with CCD give you a pretty good picture quality for a webcam, the non CCD's have problems giving decent picture quality, colors, also have problems with proper lighting.
not a bad idea looking up people with webcams and see, if you see some with the quality you like then ask which brand/model they use. nothing beats looking it up to know what you can expect and make a decision on which brand/model to buy.
