I don't know if it would be fit for purpose or work with Morae but my
husband purchased a very small and mobile video camera that was very cheap.
It can even mounted it on the side of his head when we went skiing (it is
that small).  I don't see why it wouldn't work with Morae as it connects
with USB. Might be good as so small and light and easy to attached to

Hi - I am in the process of purchasing a camera that I can use for mobile
device usability studies. It needs to work with Morae. What I want is a
camera that can catch the user's hand and finger movements over a mobile

a camera that attaches to the device. 

I have other cameras that can take longer range shots - it is the closeup
view that I need, but a close up that does not get in the way of using the

Are folks on the list using a camera they are particularly happy with? Which
cameras should be avoided for this purpose? I prefer to know about cameras
that are not pricey but still do the job. 

I will C&S for the list -
