Well, if you wanted to have a video phone like we've all seen in the movies for the last twenty years or so... But on a serious note, some people will use the camera to take a still shot of something, so it is handy to have resolutions that are better than the usual, quite crappy, webcam offerings.
Dudes and dudettes,i just noticed yesterday that even though spca driver gets my STX to work, it appears to have made my sound device unrecognized. I can't have any audio at this time. I'll probably have to uninstall it. Suppposedly, snd-usb-audio driver should pick up the webcam mic, but i'm guessing spca, and/or snd-usb-audio caused an IRQ conflict. I'll probably have to return this one, and go for QC Pro 4000 this weeekend, even though that one is about twice as expensive, w/ roughly the same features.
