    Seen anything interesting on an IP webcam

    I've just been browsing the AXIS IP webcam hits on Google

    inurl:"view/index.shtml"

    I was wondering if anyone has ever observed a crime on a webcam? What did they do?

    On a wider note, have you seen anything interesting on a webcam? I'm thinking of unexpected events i.e. not the intended target of the camera.

    Finally, now I've got my router, I'm thinking of setting up a continuously shooting camera. Ideally, I'd want something as close to 25 fps as possible and a fairly high resolution. Will any boggo camera do, or do I need to buy an AXIS camera (or similar)? Cheers

    The Axis cameras rock, but any decent USB webcam with the right software will be good enough.

    When I had the Antfarm one of the ants escaped live on camera when I was running the hexus webcam thing.

    That's about it really. Until we get TV quaility webcams I don't bother watching them.
