The Bottom Line With great image quality and integration, the Apple iSight is the best choice for Mac owners who use iChat, but it isn't ideal for users of other messaging clients. The Dropcam Pro dramatically improves on the company's already impressive previous generation wireless home-monitoring camera. Its innovative design and mechanical face-tracking capabilities make this top-of-the-line Webcam a true conversation piece. The Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000 balances great Webcam video with an affordable price. The Eyeball Webcam is a cool-looking piece of gear for people who use VoIP or video chat services on-the-go, but there are better choices for the home.
