Creative Vista Plus webcam

I've recently moved and near my new apartment there's a flea market every saturday.
Today I went poking around and bought a used Creative Vista Plus webcam for 25 SEK (~2 EUR). I plugged it into my main Ubuntu 9.04 machine and it worked right of the bat with the gspca based pac207 driver. Granted, the image is crappy but that is a property of the camera and not of the driver. Kudos to Hans de Goede and the rest of the developers for getting this driver in such a good shape!
