I just spotted this new camera from Logitech:
QuickCam Orbit

Here are the specs:

Easily add live video to MSN® Messenger... now with fast video and large 320 x 240 image size
Also works with video-enabled Yahoo!® Messenger and Windows® Messenger
Make live video calls using the built-in microphone
Always stay in the frame thanks to the automatic face-tracking software and mechanical pan and tilt feature
Record high quality videos at true 640 x 480 resolution with the high-quality CCD sensor
Get closer with the digital zoom
Capture 1.3 megapixel photos
Send a video e-mail with one click
Set up a webcam to update images to your website
Works with both USB 2.0 and 1.1

I wonder if I could get this to work with iChat?

You can make almost any USB webcam work with iSight using this shareware (and possibly IOXpert or macam driver):


BTW, that webcam's software is Windows only, the Mac OSX version is very basic (no tracking, etc.).

The tracking is software based? Are you positive on this? Logetic told me the tracking would work fine on my mac with iChat(AIM based) video chats?

Anyone have any mac reviews on this?
