WebCam: What Kind?
« on: April 17, 2003, 10:56:26 PM »
I'd like to set up a web cam, but I'm not sure what to get. Does anyone have a recommendation as to what kind. Preferably in the $0-$200 U.S.dollar range, and runs on USB.
   TIA

Hi Cirrus,
You might like to look at these links.  They contain ‘Chatter’ about Web Cams.

I Use the Logitech Quickcam ZOOM on my page, works great and it's USB.

Good luck.

Fluxuated,                                                                                                    Have you had any problems with "white-out" in bright light? That appears to be a problem with some cams. If you don't mind, could you  post your web page link, so I can see how your webcam looks at mid-day etc.? I appreciate the reply.......THX
