    I need to setup some simple (read: low cost) video conferencing, anyone have any camera suggestions? Something I can run to Best Buy, Compusa or Circuit City and pick up???

    Also software? I am looking at just using Netmeeting but would like any suggestions for other software.

    (Both must be WinXP compatible!!)

    Thanks

    I am not THAT worried about costs... With 3 T1's Comcast is a little useless anyways. Forgot to mention I am going to be doing this at work. Cheap is camera is to prove of concept and I can get approval for something with a little better quality. Looking for something I can get locally because of the time frame...

    I would look at some of the Logitech webcams. It would probably be best to look at their website, and see which one would be best for your price range.
