Recommended webcam for MAC

Hi folks,


i'm looking to buy a webcam for my setup since i run my MBA in clamshell mode and the built in isight isn't really top notch..

But i just can't decide on which to get! I checked Amazon and most people seem to buy a logitech:

I somehow don't like the looks of that logitech webcams, this one here seems to be good as well:

http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-T3H-...eywords=webcam

Yeah i know its from microsoft Can anyone confirm that it is fully compatible with mac?

Open for any suggestions, but i don't want to pay too much for it!


Thanks in advance

Thanks for your opinion! I saw the HD Pro but it is kind of pricey..

I think most of the webcams look el cheapo in this category ^^ It is more the looks of the material used in the cheap logitech ones and the form factor..

The Logitech HD Pro doesn't work with Macs from what I have been told. I can confirm that the Logitech HD C615 does work with Macs. I know this because I use one. It's hard to find an aftermarket webcams for Macs because most Macs have them builtin. If you happen to have a firewire camcorder, you can use it as a webcam. I discovered that after I bought the C615. I'm not sure about usb camcorders?
