    Accord to the list of known working configurations, 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.

    In a false sense of reality...My Mind!
    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.
