The Logitech C310 is perfect for internet video calling and taking decent pictures. I purchased this camera not too long ago and it has worked perfectly for me every time. Not only does this act as a video camera, but it also acts as a microphone for recording (although it's not professional and not recommended). The only thing I don't like about this camera is that the cord from the usb port to the camera is only five feet, which isn't that long if you're not using it for a laptop. This webcam is great for just any use you have imaginable for a beginner/intermediate computer person.
