Accord to the list of known working configurations (http://www.ecamm.com/mac/ichatusbcam/configs.html), finding a digital still camera to suit your needs will be difficult. You'd be better off to buy a decent ($150 or more) digital camera and a $50 webcam. Just be sure to get a webcam from that list.

Additionally, FYI, any digital camera that *would* work is going to feast on batteries or require an AC adapter.

Good luck.

This works as a web cam or is that not what your implying?
I'm glad my iMac has an iSight yet my miniDV was a great thing to have for a web cam, the few times I did use it :cool:
Good luck finding a camera that will let you do that with iChat.
