For my uses, a cheap one would be plenty, but I don't want it to be a security 
hole in my network...  Ideally it could do MPEG4 at VGA@30fps, too. I can do 
without the Bluetooth.

If it was a digital pocket cam rather than a cheap network cam, I definitely 
want optical finder, optical 3x (or more) zoom with decent optics, at least 6 
megapixels and very short time from hitting button to actually making picture 
(the delay disturbs me rather badly on my trusty old Powershot).
