My 5-year Logitech Quickcam just quit on me. I used it mainly for Yahoo! Messenger and video conferencing with my old pals in the US.

Recently, I came across a 1.3MP CMOS webcam called Snappy Cam. I was quite impressed with its video image quality even at 1280x1024. This cam even has a namecard scanning capability. The only setback is it cannot be mounted on my Samsung LCD monitor. The Snappy Cam retailed at $69.

I am looking for image quality, not so much on what it can do. My budget is $200 or less. Which webcam do you recommend?

Where did you saw snappy cam ? Logitech, microsoft and creative manufacture good webcams. For video quality, you would need to look for high fps and resolution ??

Many stores in SLS carry Snappy Cams. The main distributor is Thakral-DIT.

As a photographer for so many years, I can say its image quality is one of the best I have seen in a webcam. This is in terms of color renditioning and sharpness. If only I can mount it on my LCD monitor.

CMOS webcams dont work well under low light conditions.
Not the Snappy Cam. I tried it again today. Works very well in low light. Found a place in Funan selling it for $45.
