I am using a Canon SD430 digital camera for a project.

This is a decent 5MP camera with the ability to transfer images or do remote control image capture (or previewing) via 802.11b wireless (WiFi). It is normally expensive, but Amazon is having a clearance sale and selling the camera for $159.

The link is here [www.amazon.com] but I don't know how long it will stay available.

[Update subsequent to the original post: this price only lasted a short time and the camera is now more expensive again.]

As a web-cam this is great! It provides much better quality data than a standard web cam, and also can be connected to any wireless connection you might have. The camera works with connections in either Ad Hoc or Infrastructure mode (i.e. either and access point or a laptop directly). You do need a wired connection to MacOS or WIndows to configure it, though (too bad you can't associate to any access point without that, so you could send photos while wardriving).
