    Hi, What would be a good equivelent to an iSight camera, good quality, works with all the apple stuff, and looks similar - or would fit-in with everything else.

    Any response would be great.

    Thanks in advance!:apple:

    Almost any USB camera that is compatible with Vista works with any version of OSX past 10.4.9, my personal favorite is actually the XBOX360 vision camera, cheap, looks good, and works great. If you are looking at something with a bit more sustenance the Logitech Quickcam Ultra Vision is quite Macish.

    ^ Agreed, I have heard very good things about the Xbox live Vision camera. Cheap price, good quality, although it doesn't look like an isight, but nothing a little modding can't fix :cool:

    Thanks for the responses.
    I should have said - I'm running panther.
    I have looked at it on google, and it looks good - will I need any additional drivers to run this or not?

    No mic built in, but that's what the $5 PS2 USB headset is for :D
