OK so my birthday is comeing up soon and I have decided a webcamera is what I want wink.gif I wish to use it for recording my guitarplaying, video confrencing on msn with all my gmc buddys etc. So it has to be a high quality camera! I currently have a Creative NX pro which to be fair is not a bad camera, but its pretty slow when it comes to recording fast fingers and its not amaizingly clear.

I was thinking something around the £50-£60 range (about $120 usd I think ). I really want to make sure I get the best I can as I dont want blurry recordings / latency when im online!

thanks for your help wink.gif biggrin.gif

Well, you still will have problems with the fast fingers thing. Self explanitory there..

But really with my experiance with web cameras there was not a huge difference between one's i've used I dont think a new web cam will help with your fast finger problem because even at 30fps your fingers would probably still move faster. I'm not even sure if it will make it "amazingly clear".

But who knows. wink.gif

And happy birthday man!

happy birthday mattecuk , as i see til now there is no special cam can follow the fast fingers or any thing fast the camera can focus and follow that . so as your fingers so closed to cam it will work good but not the best
have a nice day

Thanks guys these cameras look great! It would be good to just have a clearer picture if nothing else - I know webcams have come along alot in recent years wink.gif
