Just a simple question about internal laptop webcams.

A friend of mine and I are in an argument right now as to weather or not internal laptop webcams are listed as usb cameras, I say they are not he says they are, can anyone clear this up for us?

Don't have a camera so I can't test but you should be able to go to Device Manager and see what it is listed under.

Depends. On my Win 8 Lenovo Laptop its listed as a Lenovo Easy Camera. The drivers are unique and don't use the USB bus.
