Which digital camera should I use? - click on an image for more information

Web Cameras


Web cams were developed to connect via a computer to the web and gained a notorious reputation for their association to pornographic web sites.

However they are very useful devices, that can be used to take still frames and video to send to other people over the net.




Like all cameras the quality varies and depends largely upon:

the quality of the lens, some of these lenses can be focused and also zoomed to give an enlarged image of the subject.

the image or file size

associated controls like white balance, exposure, zooming etc.


For the Timed Lapse project at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Georgia Atlanta, I used a web camera where the audience photographed themselves in front of plants growing in the gallery.
