Anyone know of a decent webcam (Higher than VGA) that will work out of the box with the past few Ubuntu versions?

I will be looking to make it motion activated, so if there is anything special for that as well that would be good to know as well. It will probably be okay if the software handles that and the webcam is always on, as long as that won't tie up my video drive in anyway.
