Well I’ve finally entered the world of webcams with a Logitech QuickCam Pro. Quite happy with the results. I’m also using this software to upload the images (which works nicely).
The only negative so far is the fact that when any software takes control of the camera Logitech enables facial zoom as default (which is pretty annoying for a webcam).
Still haven’t put the camera to work with conferencing but theres plenty of time for that.
