    My camera on my mac broke a while ago and I am not in my warranty anymore. However, I use photobooth a lot to track my exercise program. I was wondering if I bought a webcam, can I access photobooth again? I was thinking about getting this one from

    It got really good reviews. I was hoping if you guys know if I can access photobooth with webcams because 1) I don't know much about them, and 2) I dont know if they will let me access photobooth with it, and lastly, 3) I dont know if they have the "camera" function.(they just have the video function).

    Thanks for the help guys. I don't know too much about webcams :/

    In theory, yes - but not just any webcam will work. You need a so-called UVC (USB Video Class) webcam to use iChat/Photo Booth/etc. with it.
