Webcam for viewing papers
We're wanting to do a video chat like Skype/Google, and using webcams to point down on our papers with the math/engineering work. I don't think the online whiteboard things would work and He won't be interested in that, we need to look at the actual assignments and work.
What would you recommend for an inexpensive webcam that would give readable images? A couple I've seen are the Microsoft Lifecam HD-3000 and Logitech C270, both around $30. We could spend a little more if worthwhile, but not hundreds. Any other suggestions for doing this are welcome!
