I am asking this on behalf of my daughter, who has an older PowerMac G5: Are there any webcams out there that will work with her older Mac and that will work well when communicating with me when I get my new iMac? Thanks

Try these two links:

(you need to wade through a lot of dross)

Maccam is a piece of software that claims to make a number of digicams compatible with Mac. You can find out more about that through Skype.

I use a Logitech Quickcam Go, and whilst it's adequate and works with Skype, I couldn't honestly recommend it.

I have two different web cams that work with my older PowerMac G5.

1/ External iSight. Still available on eBay and still the most versatile solution for your Mac.

2/ Logitech Quickcam Pro for Notebooks. This works with Skype on my G5, but it doesn't work with any of the other programs, such as iChat.

Finally, check out www.ecamm.com. They have the iMage USB Web Cam which is Mac compatible and a great bit of software called iUSBCam that allows you to use a large list of "stock" webcams with iChat.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
I was on the Mac-Forums honor roll for September 2007
