    Hallo,

    I have just ordered a Mac Pro and I have already a 23" Cinema Display. I would like to add a web cam for video conferencing, but after some googling, I have discovered that iSight is still the best cam, while other cams are supported but not with great results.
    So, I am here looking for an advice... before looking for a used iSight on eBay, could you suggest me any new working alternative webcam which fits with the cinema display?

    Thanks to all!

    I genuinely would recommend you go with the iSight. I know they're pricey but they do also hold their value very well.

    Where can one find an Isight webcam? They're discontinued correct?

    eBay. On the marketplace. However, those are few and far between.

    mmmh... so no new alternative is comparable to iSight?

    I don't understand why Apple does not provide a web cam for those buying a Cinema Display. Or a MacPro. Maybe Apple is planning to embed the camera in the next revision of display products. But ALL the old buyers are still lacking of a reliable web cam. And I think they are a quite huge number.

    Sigh.
