The camera in the review is a couple years old and seems to be no longer available. The current Logitech model with motorized tracking like this, is the QuickCam Sphere AF, which is £67.38 from Amazon. Most modern webcams have some form of face tracking though, although it is done using Pan and Scan techniques, rather than being motorised.

This looks like fun! So is the general consensus that with the software you can do it with any webcam? I've just bought one so don't want to buy another really!

pc world one was only about £15 and does 1.3 megapixels. Not sure if this is compatible but I'm hoping so, if only to freak a few people out!

If your's isn't one of the one listed in skipuk's post above, then you won't be able to use the logitech software.

However, if you google: Free Wecam Effects you might turn up some free software that works with any webcam.
