    Now that we are joining the 21st Century and getting the exchange upgraded for broadband we have decided to go speak to our relatives in Canada and Australia via web cam rather than email and the expensive phone calls. (until the novelty wears off that is).

    Can anyone recommend a good webcam that will be suitable for sending video at bigger than 2" square without it looking horrendously low quality.

    cheers

    I've no idea about best, but I've got a Philips Toucam Pro (PCVC740K), and the image is pretty good.

    I bought it after reading about it here

    It performs quite well in low light conditions which was definitely a problem for the cheap and nasty no-name brand webcam I had previously.
