    After googling for god damn ages I've basically worked out that all fully Mac compatible HD webcams are rather expensive.

    The Logitech C615 is the one i've settled on at £60 but is there anything else that is cheaper and works just as well on Skype mac?

    I've currently been borrowing a mates MS HD webcam and using it in VMWare because it's waayyyy overexposed otherwise.

    Cheers!

    Ummm... have you considered just using the camera that's built in to your Macbook pro?

    It's probably for the Mac Pro clearly listed in their signature. :rolleyes:

    I figured that. I just don't know much about external webcams and so thought I was contributing when it's clear I was not... :rolleyes:

    Well, to be honest, it's irrelevant anyway because in theory I could be using the MBP in clamshell mode and therefore can't use that anyway ;)

    But yes, this is for my Mac Pro.

    I got a Logitech one recently for a Mac Mini. I am away from home at the moment or i'd like up the model number. Its does 720HD I believe. There are Mac Drivers but not all the capabilities of the Windows software that ships with it. Still works fine.

    If the OP uses an Apple Cinema Display like most Mac Pro owners, then his monitor has a built-in iSight camera.

    But I don't ;)

    Looking at some creative cameras now, no AF which makes them a lot cheaper, and I disabled it on my mates one anyway.

    Bought a Creative Live! HD non-AF for £40. Works a treat video wise, not tested the sound yet.
