    I would like to get on board with the rest of the world and start webcamming. How do I start?

    1. Can you recommend a camera (Mac compatible)?
    2. Any etiquette rules?
    3. Anything else I need to know?

    Thanks!
    Jett

    I have a USB one that has been discontinued, its probably 1MP or less. But I've had it for 7 years and its not bad.

    Just get the one with the most MP. JUST a camera IMO, not a camera with built-in-mic since they tend to be quite bad quality. 2-3MP should do nicely. But really whatever you feel like buying.

    Of course I don't use my cam anymore :rolleyes:
    It lives in a box with other bits and pieces like an ethernet card, keyboard etc.

    As for etiquette, I don't really know. But if the conversation is just friendly and not sexual, don't let the first thing she sees be your cock :tongue:
    Just play nice :smile:

    Thanks, SLB. I hadn't thought about the mic.

    Thanks. I was gonna check if you liked guys and changed it to 'he' but I went and made loads of poached eggs.

    Try ebay or google 'price compare mac webcam' that's what I google.

    Thanks, Ind. Sounds like the way to go, and I'll definitely check out the iChat.
