As a PS, I have looked at the Creative Live! Cam Socialize HD - cheap enough at £20, and there's always eBay if it doesn't work. Creative's website <i>says </i> its compatible with Leopard or later, but I am aware that there's compatible and there's compatible...

Thanks Peter, I have looked there - but their advice re Logitech cameras etc. seems at variance with some of the experiences reported in these discussions i.e. they rate Logitech's C910 highly, yet I've read on these discussions that users have found these virtually useless with "Messages" as no controls (AF etc.,) seem to work with Macs. I really don't know what to believe.

The webcam built into my 24" Apple LED Cinema Display is FULLY FUNCTIONAL with Messages in Lion. Perhaps you could find a used Apple LED display. If possible, try before you buy to be certain it works as you expect with your system.
If that does not meet your needs, choose a compatible cam from http://www.mac-compatible-web-cam.com/. Don't install any software that comes with the cam. The necessary software is already on your Mac.
