Live feed from webcam? Gopro?

    Hi there, big bank of knowledge on the internet!
    I'm building a video sampler to use in a show with a dance company. Now I want to move on from using my built-in isight cam to a USB cam that I can point at other stuff than my face ;-)
    Do you have any advice on:
    - Which camera I might use? Preferably a cam that I could use even if the lighting isn't really great - Do I need any special software to be able to get a live stream from my cam into jit.grab?

      no idea on the camera, but if it's standard enough it should work straightaway wiht jit(.qt?).grab

      I got myself a cheap one, 149 SEK, about $20 - Trust Exis. Works excellent without any drivers, plug and play.
