Avoiding the megapixel marketing trap for integrated notebook webcam designs will lead to better low light sensitivity, argues an engineer from Cypress Semiconductor.

I wish I had read this before buying my $8- webcam. I would have then not been surprised by the fuzzy focus at the edges, and the poor dynamic range. However, the 640x480 pixels at 7.5, 15 or 30 fps (depending on light intensity) is a good fit for the signal processing power of my Presario F500 laptop. So with care in lighting, and by adding a semi-professional dynamic cardioid microphone for crystal-clear audio, I can still make perfectly adequate YouTube clips.
