Any webcam made by the "bigger" companies (Microsoft, Logitech, etc) in that price range are decent cameras.

Some have built in microphones, and some don't. It all depends on your needs.

Most have adjustable feet or clamps for flat panel monitors.

I don't know what kind of stores are around you, but Best Buy or any other electronics stores usually sell these brands.

I believe Walmart even carries some now.

We have a logitech blue webcam, and the only thing we know how to do on it is take pictures. My friend and I want to chat together when we are at home, but it says that we need to connect to the internet...


If you wish to chat using webcams. You can try downloading Skype and using that as a medium for your webcams to connect to each other over. You can also use MSN messenger to chat with the webcams as well.

I hope this helps you.

Follow the instructions hopefully this solves for you
let me know

Open AIM
then click setup
then live video
Then "Audio and Video Tuning Wizard" opens.
Click Next
Be sure to enter the right camera. If no camera shows up, your camera is not properly connected or configured.
Click Next
Here you will see a video window with your camera in action.
Click Next
Click Next
Enter the right microphone. Some cameras have a microphone built in.
Some other cameras need a separate microphone. In this case be sure that your mike is properly connected.
Select your speakers and be sure they work properly.
Next
"Click to Test Speakers"
Adjust the speaker volume as needed.
Click Next
Make a mike test and observe the volume bars moving to the right.
Adjust the mike sensitivity so you have a good meter movement when speaking normally
without peaking to yellow or red.
Click Next
Click Finish
Close the "IM Preferences" Window by clicking OK.
Close the "Instant Message" Window.
Your SETUP is complete.



On the "Buddies List" click the SCREEN NAME of a user you wish to chat with.

might check if your buddy is ready to receive your video chat invitation.
Click the Camera Icon. You are ready to chat. Your buddy still has to accept your invitation.
