I use a Chinese clone of the Foscam pan/tilt camera.  No problems so far, and it cost approximately $62.  It has it's own software, but I did test it with Vitamin D and it works perfectly.  Here is the link to that camera:

I use the software it came with.  It also works great with Blue Iris.  I did read somewhere not to do the firmware upgrades from Foscam on the clones.  It may brick it.  Jeff may be able to verify this.

Some people have had success upgrading the firmware on the Foscam clones, others bought themselves a brick.  To me it is not worth the risk.  It does everything that I need it to do.  I tested it with Vitamin D and it works well, so I'm sure it will work with Blue Iris and the others.  If this is a critical application, then I would go with a real Foscam or one of the other brand name cameras.  You will get a real warranty and upgrades that work.
