Yeah, I got one, a Genius VideoCAM Web, and one other person was going to
as well.
Unfortunately it doesn't (seem to) work with the OV511 driver, and I
haven't had any luck finding any other drivers.  Looks like I need to
kickstart Windows to use it.
Besides that, the image quality, in a well-lit lounge was pretty dark, so
I'm not that happy all round.
If I pull my finger out, I might try and return it on the grounds of the
image quality.  We'll see.
