Logitech 3000 and 4000
Both work very well. Driver: pwc/pwcx.
- 15 Sep 2004
The new pwc-only driver works well with my 4000 at 640x480. A great improvement over the Labtec listed below. Note that the 5000 is not yet supported by the pwc driver.

There seems to be no actual driver available for kernel >2.6.28. :-/ -- NikolaiBerlin

Pan and tilt is supported by Motion. You need a faily new pwc/pwcx driver to use pan/tilt. See also this FAQ entry: FrequentlyAskedQuestions#I_get_errors_with_Logitech_Spher

Logitech Quickcam Zoom (New Model)
Works quite well with the pwc driver. When loading the module, use the parameter:
in order for the camera to work. Picture quality and light sensitivity are much better than my previous Creative Webcam Pro.

It works perfect using the driver from http://home.mag.cx/messenger/

Another Fry's special ($22.99 with $20 rebate on 12/26/06). I had a bit of a hassle getting /dev/video0 to appear - apparently the camera needed the gspca driver, not the spca5xx driver (lsusb gives ID 046d:092e Logitech, Inc.). Although the box states "Video capture: 640x480 pixels (SW enhanced)" and also "Quality CIF (352x288) CMOS webcam", setting the resolution to 640x480 in motion.conf crashes motion, and 352x288 gives no image - 320x240 works. Here is my mascot:

Logitech OrbitMP ( 2006 model, 046d:08cc )
This webcam is a new "evolution" of logitech sphere/orbit that works with pwc. It supports MPJEG and YUYV palettes using uvcvision driver ( svn -r79 ).
Tested with motion svn r164.

Logitech Quickcam Fusion
Works wonderfully. Some caveats during running: only appears to work with SVN release of uvcvideo, in non-daemon (-n) mode. Also a little spotty with the driver.
My workflow for running the device looks something like:
# rmmod uvcvideo
# modprobe uvcvideo
# chmod 664 /usr/v4l/video0
$ screen -dmS motion motion -n
Which reinitializes uvcvideo, changes the permissions such that a regular user can read the device, then starts motion in a screen session as a normal user.

Logitech Quickcam Ultra
.. had to use mjpg-streamer to make it into a netcam. Uses lots more cpu this way.

Logitech 1080p C910
.. works well out of the box, no custom config required. Using Ubuntu 9.10, motion 3.2.11. Only issue is that I cannot get 1600x1200 resolution to work yet, I simply get a black image. 1280x720 works perfectly - very nice image from this camera with Zeiss optics.

Works on a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian Wheezy and motion 3.2.12. (didn't test it on a real machine)
I had to rebuild libjpeg8 to get MJPEG to work without echoing the "Corrupt JPEG data: X extraneous bytes before marker" error.
