    I’ll probably also visit several electronic stores to test the all the cameras before making a final decision. How many megapixels are web cams?

    They can’t be over 640 x 480, cause of the technoglogy they use, but when I film with the Logitech 4000, I can watch it on full screen on our 21 inch high defintion Tv… and it looks great. You really don’t need higher then that resolution if you have a good webcam, Digicams just have that high resolution because you print out the pics. 8)

    Its greedy because you are asking your parents to pay that much for the gift. 400 is toooooo much!

    Actually it will be $350 and under because of the rebates. I get what you mean though.

    I’m by no means an expert on this(only been at it for a few months) and I will have to guess that what you are considering is a digital camera(the link is not working). We have been working with these and to tell the truth, the uploading of pictures is not that bad. I think like a 96mb CF card holds close to 100 pics(on a 2 or 3 megapixel camera). If you decide to film away from your computer, the cards are not that expensive to have more than one. One drawback is that depending how you have your filming rig set up, it may be hard to position the camera. A tripod works great but for closer shots we just stick alot of sticky tac on the base and it stays put. Most of these cameras have more auto focus and auto whatsits than any webcams. You aren’t tethered to your computer though. I am looking at buying a new camera and would like to get a digital one so I can use it for other things than brickfilming. However, I doubt my financial situation will allow for that. If you would use it for other stuff, I would suggest to at least look at some of the cheaper digital cameras. Just my .02

    Yea thats true and there would be more chance of moving the cam and you can use onion skinning…

    I would suggest you NOT to do that.
    Perhaps, you could coerce your parents into forking out more money for perhaps a dv or a digital camera.

    That digital camera you listed there, is a Kodak. Generally, kodaks are pretty bad. Although they are simple to use, you sacrifice many features.
    What you’re looking for in a digital camera is Macro mode and super macro mode. Also, try to find one with manual focus, as this is a plus, because on some of the cheaper dodgier cameras, the auto focus is not consistent, and several frames may be out of focus.
    Another thing is you would want a remote. (although only found on the pretty expensive cameras) so you dont have to press the shutter button.
    :d my 2c

    do a good job and listen to them. get a webcam and not a digicam. there is not much diff because both get compressed when you use a codec. i may be a cave troll but i am sane enough to have common sense
