    Macally's IceCam2 provides the Mac user with an extremely affordable, versatile and well-designed web camera. In a couple of ways I think it is superior to the Mac's current built-in iSight camera. For one, it's obviously more mobile (if you're trying to show something from a book or on your desk). A second advantage is that it will focus down to 1 inch (the Mac's built-in camera holds focus to about 4 inches).

    While slightly less sensitive in low-light conditions than the built-in Mac web cam, it is certainly adequate and I've used it often with not more than a table lamp three feet away (40 watt bulb).

    With very few web cameras out there for the Mac, the Macally IceCam2 deserves high praise.

    OK, so I have a Macbook Pro and one day my iSight(little camera) turns off and my computer says it no longer even has a camera. I didn't want to spend alot of money and it needed to be Mac compatible so all that led me the the IceCam. The regular IceCam looked weak but the IceCam II looked legit it has everything you need from a webcam which is a big turn on. i decided to go to B&H which was interesting(my first time going) and i got my webcam. I plugged it in and noticed that the my webscreen was incredibly dark, like to the point were you couldn't even see my face. You literally have to be bathed in light for it to look good, which is really lame. But its also the best thing cheap people can get for macs, which is also lame. Overall, i'd say if you have a mac and your going to really use a web cam spend a little more money and get something better.

      If you don't need a super-duper "broadcast quality" webcam, this one is excellent. I wanted a cam, but couldn't justify [$] and I couldn't find decent inexpesnive ones compatible with Mac. This one is both inexpensive and Mac-compatible, and setup took about 30 seconds - just plug it in, stretch out the cable, and sit the thing on your desk.

                Surprisingly, it was a bit difficult finding a web cam for my Mac mini. This is a very simple plug and play web cam that works great with Mac OS 10.6. We needed it for Skype and it seems to work just fine. No bells or whistles, but for under $20 worth it.

                    For the amount you pay it can't get any better.

                    This was my first web cam purchase. I am really surprised by how well it works and the quality of the picture.

                    Using it on a 2010 Mac Mini.

                      The camera is a good value for the price. It was very easy to install on my Mac Mini. Just plug in the USB cord and select to use the camera's microphone in the System Preferences pane. It was that easy. The picture quality in Skype is good considering neither internet connection is blazingly fast. The color is good and video quality seems to be good in average to low light. I would recommend this for anyone wanting to save $30 to $50 on an expensive webcam.

                              I use the IceCam2 for webchat and the picture quality is very clear and the color accurate. This cam easily beats cameras I have seen in this price range. The sound is really clear and the mic is pretty sensitive. You can talk softly and carry a big stick lol and the other party will be able to see the stick clearly and hear every word you are whispering. In all seriousness, this camera is much more than I was expecting. I was pleasantly surprised... Five Stars!!

                                      We wanted an inexpesive and easy way to Skype with out of town relatives. This cam was literally plug in and go. According to those viewing us on the other end, it takes a few minutes for the picture to warm up and become clear, but the end result is a great picture -- better than those using a PC version. The cam is white and matches our white eMac perfectly. We have a desktop system and it was difficult to find a base bigger than the ones for a laptop. It looks cool and modern -- reminds me of the Pixar lamp!
