Cowboy has a great review of webcameras

http://cowboyfrank.net/webcams/

Is a website that has an up-to-date review of just about every web camera out there. Web cameras are great for using in inexpensive photobooths and programs like www.snapstrip.com

They are not as good as digital cameras as far as quality goes, but if you light the people correctly inside the booth the results will be nearly indistringuishable. People often don’t understand why web cameras that tout 2 to 8 megapixel image resolutions dont’ look as good as a simple 1 megapixel digital camera.  The reason is simple they have cheap lenses and sensors. In my experience Logitech creates the best web cameras.  They have just come out with a couple of web cameras that have autofocus and I’m excited about testing these out.
