    Hi, I have iChat, and my friend wants a cheap webcam that he can use to talk and speak to me with. He has a PC and I have a Mac. I want to know of any camera that is the best and compatible with iChat (he uses AOL), and is a very reasonable price. He is saving up for a an iMac, but he wants a webcam in the meantime.

    I guess what Im trying to say, is that can my friend use any webcam with his AOL and be compatible with my built-in iSight on my Mac though iChat?

    Have any of you PC users(......I know, its a Mac forum, sue me) bought a cheap webcam? Can anyone recommend oone?

    thanks. My friend is planning to out tomorrow to get one. :)

    The type of webcam he gets has no bearing on whether or not you're on a Mac. It's all about what's compatible with his machine. Since he's on a PC, I'd imagine any junky USB webcam would be fine.
