Quality web cam?
I'll be looking to set up skype when we get there and have had a wee trial run in UK but found the quality of the picture wasn't that great.
Does anyone know if it's best to use like a video camera rather than a specific web camera..does that make the quality any better?
Any advice gratefully received...as I'm a complete newb at the webcam lark.
Hi Carol Ann,
We got a Web Cam a few weeks ago and the picture quality is great, It must all depend on the quality of the camera the other end. I spoke to a cousin the other week and the picture I was getting wasn't that good but he said I was coming through Cristal clear.
We got a Microsoft VX6000 which has a 1.3 mega-pixel camera and costs around £70.
We use it with Windows live messenger and have no problems.

Maybe thats why the picture was rubbish then..my mum just had some inbuilt thing on her laptop..never did ask what my picture was like. There was a sort of delay / lag so just assumed she was getting it too.
