Same price at Ebuyer, so I guess you could check the postage costs to compare?

it is slightly more expensive on ebuyer (not uch but still), thanks though!

Only problem is a friend of mine previously brought a webcam from Dabs.com and it was faulty, it was very difficult for him to get it swopped over (didnt want his money back he just wanted a swop over for a working model) the only way he got this was to threaten them with small claims court, once he did that they were more than happy to swop it over!

I bought this camera last year and would recommend it. It is small, fits in your top pocket, it can be completely automatic giving great results and it can be manual giving you full flexibility. The best price I have seen is from Digifocus (one of Amazon's independent retailers) - £227.99 + £5.01 P&P.

Or here click here they will look after you if there's a problem, it won't be so easy with the box shifters like Dabs

I couldn't possibly recommend Dabs. Past bad experiences (note plural; didn't learn my lesson!)

Go with Internet Cameras Direct, as A194 says they will sort out any problems should they arise a lot better than for example e.buyer

Had to wait 3 weeks for a refund to my credit card for goods they took money for but did have in stock. The only means of communicating is by e.mail, no phone option, and the responce time is slow,not to be recommended.
