LQ: Recommend to me a good webcam!

I'm using the latest kernel 2.6, i'm on Debian Testing and i want one that will work with Yahoo. Currently i am using Ayttm for my Yahoo client but will switch is there is one with better webcam compatability.

I'd also like it if i could capture video and take stills. That, however is second priority.

If you take a look at the list at

and then eliminate everything that either doesn't work, is obsolete or is obscure enough that you'll never find that model anyway, you probably have a short enough list (probably mainly Logitech, Creative and Philips) that you can google for reviews and comments on individual models.
