Although there are fewer Mac compatible web cameras available than for the PC platform the good news is that for recent Macintosh computers there is firewire capability. The best approach to animation on the Mac is to use a firewire digital video camera as the capture device. With animation software you only need to capture still images but in using the iStopmotion software the movie camera is an ideal source of still images with real time capture.

These cameras are a lot more expensive but they can be used for conventional video production and for animation the quality and resolution is much higher than web cameras.

An MSI StarCam 370i webcam is an inexpensive option for Mac users who cannot afford the digital video camera approach. These cost around $60 and are available from Leading Digital Solutions Ph 0438 722 187
