Hi Gang, my son wants a webcam for his birthday soon,anyone that can advise me as to what's to look at and also stay clear of, all help welcome as usual. I assume that it is a pretty simple task even for me to set it up. Thanks.

You can't go far wrong with any Logitech camera - I've had a couple and they have been fine, even the cheapest have done the job. If you get one with a built in microphone then it'll save you forking out for a seperate one.

It's probably worth checking which messaging program he wants to use and check the compatibility of the camera with the system.

I too use a Logitech cam picture quality is brilliant, i also hear that the new range of cams from Microsoft are good.

Pererin - you did not say what quality or purpose you are looking for - for normal everyday use you should not be spending more than £15 to £25 - there are many on the market in that price range - jarani

You can spend even less on a BOGOF basis (!):
