Hello, I sent a search for a similar thread and failed to find something significant. I will find out if there is a different one, because the pit will tear me a new one if so.


Well, I recently built interest to find a Web Cam capable of recording covers for my youtube page. I want something that has a built in microphone that has a pretty decent sound quality to it, well enough to get a pretty good idea of my tone right out of my amp speaker and through the camera microphone. Preferably at least 30 frame per second video recording. Do any of you own web cams that you do covers with? I would prefer doing this just because I don't want to mess with a Tone Port type of product in which I have to sync video and audio, and also get a computerized tone. I want it to seem authentic. Suggest and cameras or any other ideas?

You know, I had this same problem. I just opted to buy a digital camera instead of a really good web cam since I didn't have a digital camera at all. Canon 780 IS has HD video recording, so I saved up for that. So far it works really well and the sound is not bad either.

Could you provide a link to a store? I'd like to get a camera also since I don't have one, and my webcam tends to make everything green unless you have some very bright lights (It's got a night vision function that you can't turn off).

Dang, looks like I might be stuck getting a digital camera. Is there power cables for those things? My friend has a max battery life of like... 10 minutes on his..

It's $230 for the black one right now. That's about how much I got it for.

Power cord is extra I think. But the battery life is pretty good. If anything, you could always just buy another generic brand battery. Supposedly it's hit or miss with those, but even if you end up buying 3 generic batteries, it still ends up being cheaper than buying a genuine Canon battery.

I have a Logitech one. (Don't know the model)

I found it on clearance at Meijers for $15 the day after I bought a lifecam for $50.

I was happy.
