    What should I charge for a 'private show'... errr

    No- really- I am considering a webcam to broadcast my kiln firings. Not super exciting, but potters will like it. Maybe during kiln opening we could get a shot of each pot as it comes out of the kiln.

    Anyway- it's outside, but a covered location (open-sided shed).
    I need something that works in less than bright light.
    Wireless would be great, but may not be 100% necessary.
    Of course- I don't want to break da bank- can I get a good one for under $100?
    I'm not sure about hosting services. There are lots of facebook applications- I suppose I could go that way. How easy would it be to drop it on my own webpage?

    If you already have a camcorder, you may be better off using it as a webcam, especially if have one with lighting.
