Sept. 8, 2008 - PRLog -- Finding truly Mac-compatible webcams for your Apple Macintosh computer has long been a challenge. However the UVC - 'Universal USB Video Class' USB driverless web camera standard now helps assure instant plug and play compatibiity with not only recent versions of Apple's Mac OS X Tiger and Leopard operating systems, but UVC web cams are also natively supported under Windows XP and Vista - and recent versions of Linux as well. Select models of these UVC compliant webcams are featured at:

New innovations in webcam technology are taking UVC compliant cameras to the next level: Logitech and Hewlett-Packard are the first to introduce completely HARDWARE-BASED auto-focus functions that need no additional software to enable. Improvements in low-light sensitivity, auto-white balance and lighting adaptability are also well implemented on these top-quality webcams. HP is pushing new levels of resolution with it's leading 3 Megapixel sensor. And Logitech continues to deploy absolutely high-quality glass-lens optics in its premium webcam lineup.

Even the bottom-end of the webcam market is rapidly shifting to driverless UVC compliance. Those looking for a cheap, low-cost UVC webcam - and willing to make some trade-offs in quality - may find affordable UVC compatible webcams such as those featured at: http://www.uvccompatiblewebcams.com/budget-webcams/cheap-...
Less than stellar light-sensitivity, low-quality optics and muffled built-in microphones are all too common at the low end of the market - but may be more than adequate for casual video chat needs.

Even users of Apple Computers with built-in iSight cameras, or PC users with integrated webcams in their laptops may enjoy the added flexibility and viewing angles afforded by an external webcam. The vast majority of web-cam enabled applications like iChat AV, Yahoo Messenger, ISPQ Videochat, Skype and others - allow selecting between multiple cameras as your needs dictate.
