Regarding Firewire DV cameras (the ones with the avc1394 plugin), you
could explicitly mention that they work, period (or "should work" if you
so prefer). Right now the wiki says "Firewire camera supported by Linux
should work".  No maker is going to put a "Linux compatible" logo on a
DV camera, so it may be a good idea to mention these. Oh, and such
cameras hardly fit in the Webcams category (or you could rename the
category to "Cameras").

I have personally used these two: SONY TRV-20[1] and a Canon IXY DV
S1[2].  On Linux, Firewire interface, AVC1394 plugin, no special driver
(in kernel firewire drivers are enough). Oldest tested version is kernel

I am curious, has anyone has used a High Definition DV camera? I am
pretty sure that it won't work in HD mode, but I'd still like to hear
people's experience.
