    P.S. A nice web camera for under $50 would be the ideal thing.

    Kind regards,

    The I-Sight is a discontinued sorta-collectors-item, priced way above its value these days. Unless you care about natural-light video color fidelity, you don't need one of those. And its a bit pesky o use with some newer tools.

    Any current-generation name-brand web cam will do you.

    What you won't get is custom drivers or video-overlay special effects.

    But as long as the camera is from the last year or so, any USB web cam will work fine.

    (Specifically it needs to support USB Video Class, and some cameras mention that on the box, but pretty much anything from the current lines from Logitech or Creative
    are just made that way.)
