What's better? Firewire or USB?
What are the pitfalls of going to a firewire webcam and how do I make that work?
Is it easier to stay with a USB webcam set up? Is it more stable?
The price for USB-webcams are quite well known but what is a good price for a Firewire-webcam?
When I was snooping around for Linux compatible webcams I stumbled upon a couple of threads who suggested that I buy an iSight or some other firewire camera. They cost a bit more, but firewire video is basically driverless, so it's pretty much guaranteed to work (at least that was prevailing sentiment from those folks).Examples:
Unibrain Fire-i Webcam
Pyro 1394 WebCam
This is definitely a question I don't mind asking before I make any kind of major purchase. So to all those who answer, thank you ahead of time.
