This is just a short review of the webcam I picked up. As lots of people know getting hardware that will work with Linux can sometimes be a real pain in the butt. I have been using this camera with Debian testing amd64 for skype and flash. This camera has really impressed me its microphone is great and the video is great quality. The only real issue I have with this camera is that it does not want to stay hooked on the top of my laptop screen, I will admit I should have gotten the laptop model.
Some specs about the Pro 9000
- Carl Zeiss optics with autofocus
- 720p HD video and 2MP sensor
- Logitech Rightlight 2 Technology
- Built in microphone
Here are a few links to check out if you are in the market for a webcam for Linux.

This application is a life saver, now I know Internet Exploder is a Linux persons worst nightmare but sometimes it is an evil we must put up with. I have shown this site to a few of my web developer friends and they just love it.
Anyways wanted to post about it to share with others and say thanks to the people who wrote it.
