    - Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX ~ £35.78

    - Logitech Quickcam Pro 5000 ~ £36.30

    - Logitech Quickcam Fusion ~ £47.93

    All good, I'm gonna be getting the Pro 5000 next time I'm up at Scan HQ - check this out for photo and video examples.

    EDIT: The Creative Live! Cam Optia ~ £32.04 + £7 cashback, looks pretty good (see here)... although it has no mic.
