Not Mac Compatible, but pretty cool little gadget

Summary: Note this WILL NOT WORK WITH A MAC -- but it's a tidy little webcam with its own carrying case and despite Amazon's attempts to get you to buy an additional microphone, it comes with one included. Have communicated with persons using one on their laptops and video is pretty decent.
Pros: Very small, pretty good image quality, inexpensive. Very good Linux support with the spca5xx driver. Comes with some neat accessories: a neoprene bag for the camera, Vel-cro strap around the cable for easy coiling, and separate earphone+microphone.
Cons: The lens is quite small and needs pretty bright ambient lighting to look good.
A tiny mobile cam, that has a great image, in good light

Summary: I bought my Creative Notebook Cam, almost 2 months ago. It was a nice small size for, the new notebook, I was getting. You can expect, a clear picture, in normal daylight, but the only con, is the picure that it produces at night, in lower light levels.
Summary: My parents really like us having this cam as they can see their only grandchild on a regular basis. Yes, the lighting is an issue, but I just move a lamp over near my baby (at night) or open the shades (during the day) so they can see him clearly. Don't expect DV Cam resolution, etc.
Summary: I got this webcam for my husband, who travels for business. (Seeing each other's faces on web chats can be very cheering.) The camera is very nice and portable. It comes with a nice travel pouch and a velcro cord wrap. The resolution is crisp and movement is fluid, as webcams go.
Summary: I have been using this thing for a couple of months now. It is not professional quality by any stretch of the imagination, but for the price is more than adequate. It clips onto my Vaio laptop very nicely and was pretty easy to install. The usb cable sits nicely behind my screen.
Decent Camera for the Money. 4 Stars for notebooks

Summary: Got it today and loved the size and the way it is attached to monitors (Dell Latitude). Get one if you need portability, ease of use, and good bundled software. If you need it for more a professional experience, get 70USD up cameras.
Summary: I was surprise as to how small the web cam is but I like that because it's easily portable. If you get enough lighting, the image is clear. I just wished the camera rotates left to right instead of just up and down. But I would recommend this product; great for its value.
