    Noooooo!!! Don't get the Creative Webcam Notebook!

    This damn thing bugged me for a year! The cam does not survive windows suspend mode. Sometime it delivers a picture, sometimes it just stays black. That's realy annoying!

    Automatic focus? Thats not true for this camera...
    Manually adjustable focus lens for sharper close-up images

    Wow, thanks for the heads up!
    Just browsed the local store website and it listed autofocus in its specs. What cam are you using? Or any hints for a small sized webcam? Doesn't have to survive suspend though, my carputer is on hibernate.

    That one also has a bad auto exposure range. It could handle indoor lighting fine, but take it outside and it washes out. The frame rate was really slow too, but I was sharing USB 1.1 and 2.0 devices on the hub, so that's not a fair test (edit: tested directly on a 2.0 port and still very slow). The Logitech quickcam pro for notebooks has worked the best for me. 2nd best was the cheapest one on pricewatch (ETT).
