J. Baugh (Member of this mailing list and employee of the FSF (please
forgive me if I'm wrong on that) said on this mailing list before:

There are several newer, higher quality webcams that rely on the
linux-uvc driver (implementing the USB Video Class standard), which is
free software. It is not in the kernel, but you can get it from .

I purchased a Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 and it works fine with this
driver, using gNewSense, for rms's use. I tested it with Ekiga - worked
great, even under low light. They have really great quality, but they
are a little bit more expensive (we paid $60 for the QuickCam).

It seems that this is the direction I too will go. Not only for a libre
webcam, but he's saying that quality ain't bad either. :)
