I had a look at Dr Grumps' thread just now.
I want to set up my home office with a webcam that can also function as a digital camera so that my wife can take and email photos when I am abroad, plus, of course, the device should facilitate video-conferencing, even over connections less perfect that first world (I spend much time abroad in C/S America and sub-Saharan Africa).
Any recommendations? My own camera is a Fuji that doubles up as a webcam at my end. I've seen Logitech and Philips models at PCW.
Cheers and Happy New Year.
