I saw this webcam, A4Tech PK636MA, at my friend's house and it has a nice quality. In the specifications, it's written that it takes photos at 1.3mega pixels, but has 350k at CMOS 640X480 (I don't understand what that means, but I guess it's the number of pixels during a video convo.?)

Anyway, in this webcam's specifications, V-Gear TalkCam1.1, it's written that it has 350k. The question is: is this webcam's 350k is equal to the 1st camera where it also has 350k? Or are they talking about taking regular photos (whereas the 1st one has 1.3 mega pixels)??? If the first-mentioned option is right, then what is the number of pixels when taking regular photos in the second webcam (comparing to the 1.3 mega in the first webcam)?

Thanks in advance.

The first one (the A4Tech) has a maximum video size of 640 x 480 pixels which adds up to a total of roughly 350k pixels. But it can also be used like a still digital camera when it can take a much better quality pic of 1.3 Megapixels.

The second one however (the V-Gear), although having the same video quality (maximum size 640 x 480 which again adds up to roughly 350k pixels) cannot take a still picture at higher quality -- it will only be 350k pixels same as the video mode.
