Another reason I would prefer the webcam over the digital for brickfilming is because you can see what you’re doing on the screen. You can see how much a fig needs moving or put it back where you accidentally bumped it. what i’m trying to say is, is that you can see exactly how the frame will look before you take the pic.

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

A digital still cam can work extremely well for brickfilms, as you can have HD quality. The only problem is that you need quite an expensive camera if you want it to have the streaming function. I believe the Canon G-3 (and higher such cameras) lets you connect the camera to the computer like a webcam or camcorder. For me, that’s the only reason I didn’t buy a still camera: You’re limited to how many images you can get onto their storage card. Once it’s full, you have to then transfer them to your computer. That also means no onion skinning/rotoscope/etc. Since I’m a lazy person, that’s a big factor.
