Just having a discussion about webcams here at work. I always thought that they gave rather crappy pictures but some people here say that there are now some that are OK.

So, what's the best webcam out there at the moment?

I thought the whole point of a webcam was to give crappy pictures. afterall how good can a 320x240 image be?

I don't know if it's the best but the new Apple webcam thing (the iSight??) is reportedly pretty nice. Expensive, too, I've heard US$300?

The best would be a regular digital video cam hooked into the computer via firewire (1394)

Files could get rather large though! :D

Even my first webcam I got years ago (Intel Web Cam) did 640x480.
