Webcams are an ever more popular way to embarrass yourself on the web, and occasionally get your 15 minutes of fame. Well, it isn't going to happen if you are using a 7 year old webcam that is on it's last legs. The Tech Zone will help you buy a new one by highlighting the important features available now.
"There is a wide range of uses of webcam technology. Some examples include personal 'Big Brother' style diaries, sharing of family events,
workplace security, video conferencing, virtual tourism, road traffic management, weather watching, event broadcast and a host of others.
Before you make a choice about any webcam equipment, it helps to decide exactly how you want to use the technology, in other words, what you
are intending to broadcast. This decision will impact upon the type of camera you use, and how you use it."
