computer cam?

What brand and model cam do we like for Skype and such? I can use my smart phone but not for extended conversations.

I like Logitech, Bill. This is very similar to the webcam that I had.
Logitech Webcam
It has a built in microphone but I never used that.
It's also worth noting, it only gives you 720p instead of the more expensive ones that offer 1080p.
Truthfully, I didn't notice much difference at all with the lesser high definition.
It does what it is supposed to do and works very well with Skype and the price can't be beat..

Thanks Cindy, that model gets sort of mixed reviews. But stepping up in Logitech doubles the price. Maybe someone has a second opinion.
Cindy you said "had" what are you using now?

Thanks Frank, looks impressive. I am going to try one more thing before I invest. I'm told my HTC 1 phone has a great camera, I just don't like holding it, I have an idea for a stand. But I really like the Hp HD cam.

Thanks Cindy, I have not seen that before, but a good idea.

Edit: I found a solution sitting on my desk. I have a small wooded cigar box I use to hold pens. I can place the phone in the box vertically and raise the top to the proper angle to support the phone, seems to work very well. Even allows me to adjust the angle up or down. Just saved $60.00

Cindy, it is exactly like Frank's. Bassfisher, the one I linked to above is wide screen, 1080p HD.

I looked at that one, but sort of got mixed reviews. I had a strong referral and personal recommendation for the one I bought.

I have the Logitech C920 HD PRO and although more expensive here, is not as good as Frank and Bill's web cam.
