A digital camera will be more useful for non-brickfilming activities like going out with family and stuff, but a webcam will be much, much easier to work with when making brickfilms.

You can use digital cameras to get nice effects, but you need one that allows you full manual control and it tends to be only the more expensive cameras that do that.

If you are making a brickfilm that you want to watch on a television, then so long as you can take a photo that is 640 x 480 pixels then that will let you make a decent looking film. You don’t need multi-megapixel images since you’ll have to crush them down to standard definition or high definition anyway.

With a digital camera, you need to take the photos, get them out of the camera and into the computer, stitch them together into a video file and then you can see what you’ve shot.

With a webam you can hook the camera direct to the computer and if you have stop-motion software with onion skinning then you can see what you are shooting as you are shooting it.
