USB webcam that can zoom for a Mac?

Question - anyone have a recommendation for a USB webcam for a Mac that can zoom in for a closer shot?   I asked this question back in January ( https://plus.google.com/u/0/+DanYork/posts/S22xHxMB1iN ) and at the time the best suggestion was to make multiple shots inside of Wirecast with one shot being cropped in tighter to give the zoom effect.  That obviously still works (and works well with the Logitech C930e - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CRJWW2G/ ) but I'm just curious if anyone has seen anything newer this year that works well.

Any newer ideas?  (Thanks in advance.)

We're Using A New Hangout On Air App Called #Crowdcast  for Today's +Lights, Camera, HOA Show!
This new Hangout On Air App let's you invite people on Facebook and Twitter and Google Plus to watch, comment, and ask questions.

You can point the crowd to the Crowdcast Site like this: https://goo.gl/TDwP66
At the same time you can also embed it on your website like this: 
 http://goo.gl/YNMU62
And this is the link to the G+ HOA: https://goo.gl/1va9H8

So, you're broadcasting on Crowdcast, Youtube, Google Plus AND your website.

You can decide if you'd like the crowd to Register (provide their email address) or not.  *For this Show registration isn't required.*

If you'll be Comment Tracking you can still do this for those commenting and asking questions on the G+ side.

For those who like watching on Google Plus but are mobile and want to ask questions the #crowdcast  Site makes it easy for them.

We won't be discussing this awesome new App on tomorrow's Show but you'll see more from me in future on this new App.

What do you think about it?

Super Excited To Share This Great News!
Tomorrow is our First Inaugural #Crowdcast  Event linked to a regular Hangout On Air - the +Lights, Camera, HOA Show!

Wondering 'Ok so what's the big deal'?
Well the big deal is this App allows people on Facebook and Twitter to join in and they don't need to watch on Youtube or have a Google Plus or Gmail account to comment or ask questions! 

You can point people to the Crowdcast Site - like this: https://goo.gl/TDwP66
Or you can embed the Crowdcast on your website like this: http://goo.gl/YNMU62
This is the link to the G+ HOA: https://goo.gl/1va9H8

We won't be discussing this awesome new App on tomorrow's Show but you'll see a lot more from me in future on this new App - because it provides unbelievable engagement and relationship-building opportunities and can be utilized in so many ways!

If you're curious check out the links and let us know what you think!

My company uses Google Apps for Work
I want to start a Hangouts on air but no invitee is able to join the event. They get an error message "You don't have access to this event."
I've enabled "Allow Hangouts On Air" in Admin section. I've read dozens of support, FAQ, Forum articles but no joy :)
Please help!

It appears Youtube doesn't support Google Apps for Work email accounts +Gregory Eid.  What you can do is make sure you have them circled using your Google Plus account, then add their Google Plus name just under the "private" area in Youtube.

I just did my third HOA yesterday for my GEG Northern VA group and it's gotten better. : )  The second HOA was bad because I lost the wifi connection halfway through, so outside viewing wasn't possible and the recording was terrible in YouTube. This last time I was hard-wired and what a difference. The only "issue" I had was one of my participants couldn't get his camera to work, so instead, while he talked, I shared my screen with his presentation....so I thought. I forgot to click the "Share With Everyone" option after choosing "Share Desktop", so for a portion of the HOA, people were just listening and couldn't see my screen. 

So, as a mental note, it was a nice work around, but remember to press all the necessary buttons! :  ) 

Ah well, live n' learn!

Oh for the love of God, WHY IS THIS SO HARD!

Trying to get first-timers into a private test hangout. It's like drawing teeth. I've spent over an hour trying to coach two new guest for my weekly HOA via email. Has the install process changed or something?

I send them a link to a private hangout. They wind up creating their own hangouts!!!

Why can't can't it be more intuitively simple for newbies?? Please, Google!

Over two hours now, and I've had to give up on one of them. NOTHING he describes (on the phone) in G+ or hangouts on his iPad bears any resemblance to normal behaviours.

I can see his profile. He can see mine. But nothing he does enables us to make contact inside a video or text hangout. 

I have been hosting weekly Hangouts on Air for over three years (today's is #170) and I've never had newbie problems like this. WTF is going on?

Is Periscope damaging HOA audiences?

"Of course I was watching your Hangout on Air! Didn't you know?"

It was a friend's remark a few days ago that made me wonder what people think about the way Hangouts on Air work.

Since then I've asked a few people and it seems many assume that the host (me) knows who is watching, just like Periscope live streams where the names of viewers pop up onscreen when they start watching.

This impression is probably only reinforced by the way Google asks Are you going to watch? Yes/No/Maybe

I'm now wondering if this puts off a lot of potential viewers.

I suspect many think: "Hmm that sounds like it might be an interesting HOA, but I'm not sure how much time I can devote to it and I don't want to 'log in' and then embarrassingly 'log out' again moments later!"

How do we get across the idea that it's anonymous, just like watching TV?

Giant project underway (far from finished) and I need the help of my incredible PLN! I'm starting a website to house all EDUCATION related Google Hangouts on Air.  I want to provide educators with one place to find previously recorded GHO and upcoming GHO events.  Please take a look, give feedback and contribute your GHO events to this site! http://gho4edu.weebly.com

I was hoping to do a hangout for the community I started a few days ago but I cannot find the community listed in the invite list. Any ideas why that would be, or how to resolve it?

Does Hangouts On Air need a broadcast only no record option? Meerkat and Periscope have been taking the world by storm. They have only been around a few months. Hangouts On Air have been around for a long time. But has never been as popular as Meerkat and Periscope. I have seen a lot of people playing tv,music and radio. Things you can not do on Hangouts. People have been asking for the ability to do Hangouts On Air from a mobile device for a long time. I hope the huge success of this new apps will get Google to change their minds. Hangouts On Air needs two things. To be able to start from a mobile device. Also a broadcast only do not record option to avoid copyright problems.

With regards to copyright, the video is broadcasted to YouTube.  Other sites don't care much about copyright protection.

HOA app developer wishlist....

Too often there are difficulties getting my guests to add +Moritz Tolxdorff 's Lower Third (via toolbox)  when they join. 

I'd love it if there was an app that allowed me, the host, to label my guests as a fall back.

YouTube's new Video Cards work in Live Streams

Seems to me that Cards will be combined with Showcase at some point.

The Showcase app, like the Q&A app, is clunky because it pops the video out into a separate window and not all viewers understand how to get to that.

Hi.  I'm wondering if anyone has any experience incorporating their Hangouts on air into their WordPress site?  Right now what I do is after scheduling a hangout,I take the YouTube url and put it into a dedicated page on my site.  I've looked at a couple of plugins but haven't been impressed.  Ideally I'd love to be able to schedule, start and stop hangouts from my site.
