    Webcam recommendation?

    Looking for any and all feedback on a webcam to go with. I'll be buying two, so I'd like to keep the cost low but I've always been one to pay for better quality and features.

    The only use will be for video chat. Also, any recommendations on a good site to use for that?

    Thanks much!

    Re: Webcam recommendation?

    I've done video chat before I just used my Sony Handycam Mini DV camera. I don't know if you have a camcorder but they work great as webcams.

    I just got the Microsoft VX-3000 on sale for 30$ at staples. I does okay for how much I would actually use it.

    Re: Webcam recommendation?

    I got a Logitech. Does anybody know why my Skype software is very blurry when I chat with my family back in Iowa. Really disapointed in the quality of the picture.

    Any other recommendations for Web Cam software?
