Octoprint WebCam suggestions

Ive Got a RaspPi4 and as I stated would like to know what you guys have used with minimal issues. Nothing fancy needed btw Im just a hobbiest looking to monitor from a distance.

Thank you.

Use the Raspberry printer, it plugs into the raspberry parallel ports. Cheap and cheerful.

I am using just the standard pi camera with the ubiquitous articulating arm.  Be sure you get the camera it calls for because there are differences and they don't all fit the printed housing:

I made a collection for all the models I used in setting it up:

Would be awesome if the Insta360 Link worked with OctoPi. Considering the Link is on a gimbal, it would be great to be able to remotely move the camera angle/view!

Worth posting on Octoprint forum, see if anyone wrote a plugin to control camera movement.

Is the C920 the best webcam you can use with OctoPi, offering the highest video quality etc?
