I'm looking for reccomendations for affordable and versatile web cams that would capture verything from written text on a whiteboard to color and phase changes in an Ehrlenmeyer flask.  Suggestions for products that have worked for you would be very much appreciated as I gear up fast for an entire online Inorganic Chemistry experience.   Thanks!

Tom, I have two Logitech web cams (C270 and QuickCam Pro 9000) and they have been great. They are not very cheap but are both under $100. The cheaper ones are not as good in terms of their video quality.

I have also had luck just using my camera on my iPhone. You would then just have to get a tripod to hold it.

Thanks, Anthony.  Just ordered a tripod and phone mount to use with a loaner Logitech camera.  You helped bring my search to a quick conclusion!
