    Take a look at http://rasterweb.net/raster/2011/05/19/the-photo-booth/

    He used an external webcam instead of the iSight because of better quality
    video.

    The only issue is getting the application to recognize the USB webcam
    instead of the iSight. But here is some help on that

    Worst case, you will have to disable to the iSight hardware.

    Hi Hoyu,

    Better, although you should adjust the settings as suggested in the link that john has posted.

    All features remain.

    I've found that the only issues are lighting ones. If you don't get that right it can be a very precocious piece of hardware.

    Will the photo look blurry if the person being photographed is moving even under good lighting condition. Thats the problem i found I'm having with the built-in isight on a mac.

    Yes,

    That really won't make a difference no matter what camera you use though. Although you don't have to be perfectly still to get a good picture.

    Here's 2 examples of shots I got using a Logitech C910 webcam with a single fluorescent light tube. neither are "perfectly still" and one has a guy who quickly moved as the shot was being taken.
