I'm still trying to figure out what to do with my camera. My monitor is mounted so close to the wall that I can't put the camera on it anymore. There is roughly 1/2" between the wall and the back of the monitor.
If it's a flat-panel, use a clip-on mount - most modern cameras include them for precisely this mounting option. (The bigger surprise was that my Communicate STX had the option - and it predated the Rise of the Flat-Panel by a few years.).
However, it's about time that my STX retires - the one flaw it has is non-support for OS X beyond Leopard. (I'm looking at one of four cameras that are in the right price range that are absolutely plug-in replacements that are supported by any OS under the moon, not merely the sun. Two from Logitech (C-515 and C-625; the 625 superceded the 515)) and two from Microsoft (LifeCam and LifeCam Studio). I don't need fancy - however, I DO need solid Skype and Facetime support, and without costing a mint. (Fortunately, even the highest-priced of the four is $70USD - off-sale and brick and mortar.)
