    :? hmm. always a tough question. I’ve been asked this before by some friends at school, and I can never give a positive answer. I’ve had one hand held digital camera before, but at least 3 times while I was using it, the cord fell out of the camera. I eventually used tape on it to hold it in, but the cord was still pretty short. Now I use a web cam (since i’m not swimming in money, I got a cheap one from target.), and it works great. Just make sure you get on of a descent resolution. Mine has a CMOS censor, and every time I shoot a frame, i have to wait for the light to go back to what it was in the last frame.
    So, each method has it’s own drawbacks, although I would prefer to use the webcam, as it is cheaper, and less prone to accidents.
    Hope this helps!
    Cya!

    Hi cwr89,

    if you are looking for a serious digital still cam, which also can be used for animation take a look at the Canon Powershot S series (sorry for that advertisement), which is comes with full manual control and has great picture quality.

    Another reason I would prefer the web cam over a digital still cam (I knew what you meant with the batteries. I still used to have one.) is that you can see what your doing on the screen. What if you accidentally bump the digital camera in thte middle of a scene? You would never know where to put it back, and you’d probably have to start all over. With a web cam, you can quickly check the frame before and adjust the positioning appropriatly. Also, every time your digital cam was full, you would have to transfer all of the stuff to your computer, when with a web cam, it’s there as you go along.
    So, if you still can’t let go of a digital camera for a less expensive web cam, then i would suggest that you get one with an LCD screen on it that shows you what you are shooting.
    Good Luck!
    Cya!
