    Hi guys
    currently run a late 2012 mac mini, can anyone recommend a decent webcam for Skype and FaceTime calls. Most of what I see in PC World are windows based and Maplin do not give any operating system suggestions.

    There are a number of USB cams that work well, but recently I pulled on old iSight out of the closet just to see if it works, and it does just fine. I only need it for audio (screen share) but the cam still looks great. No need to get a mic just yet for my purpose.

    Never thought I'd touch the Firewire port on this 2012 Mini, but... ;)

    I use the old style Xbox cam... Almost any usb cam should work ...



    Webcam that I use .. Then use BT headset for audio since you'll get ghosting in audio if you use build-in mics on Skype etc.. :eek:

    I tried Microsoft livecam. There is a mic on it so you can use it for audio/video chat. Superb image quality. I tried in Photo Booth, FaceTime, skype.
