    Hi folks, Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but I'm looking to buy a webcam, particularly for use with Skype. I see at the moment the Isight camera is no longer available to buy in the UK, so looking for suggestions and advice.

    macam

    macam is a driver for USB webcams on Mac OS X. It allows hundreds of USB webcams to be used by many Mac OS X video-aware applications. The aim is to support as many webcams as possible.

    Go here: http://webcam-osx.sourceforge.net/
    and find a camera that you can get locally.

    Plug the USB camera into a slot that has enough power, usually on the computer itself rather than a hub.

    Good luck!
    :D

    As noted in this thread, the Xbox Live webcam works, too.
