I like the Logitech Orbit. This thing has amasing resolutions and when you move away from the webcam, there is a sensor that senses the activity, and will follow you if you move to ofar left, it'll move by itself, and you'll always be in the pic

the instant messaging software and computer quality on both ends is going to limit your resolution in your video conversations anyway, so a higher resolution one is only going to benefit you if you record photos/video of yourself and store it on your computer to send/upload someplace.

logitech is doing something they call HQ or high quality video conversations, and here are the compatable logitech webcams:

i think it is in conjunction with skype, and both computers have to meet minimum specs to get the HQ video conversation.

here's the info on the HQ Video

I technically don't own one, but if you do a Youtube check for Logitech Orbit, you'll see what it does. It's an amazing thing to have, and I'm actually interested into taking in account to buy one...even though I don't really like webcams (I'm not using them or most of them are POS).
