Ever since I got a MacBook Pro I haven’t had to worry about a webcam for Skype or some random need to capture video quickly. The built-in iSight camera does a great job for what I needed. When my Aunt moved into an assisted living facility, I decided it would be neat if we could get her to use Skype to chat with us. We tested it out for the first time last weekend, and it turned out great. Click here to see the call in action She enjoyed it, and we plan on doing it in the future. While preparing these plans I looked around for a nice webcam for my workstation. I found the H5D which had nice reviews so I picked one up at TigerDirect. The reason I pulled the trigger on it was the compatibility with both Windows and OS X. The video on my blog shows it running on my MacBook Pro. The picture quality was great (720P), and I would recommend this unit to someone wanting a better quality Skype call than a less-expensive webcam would get you. I also bought a Logitech C250 for $19.99, also at TigerDirect, and while it works fine with her Windows 7 laptop, the video quality is definitely much more grainy than the LifeCam.
