Yes but there are several major webcam chipsets that get great image
Like Philips PWC chipset that is in zillion modern webcams, Divia NV802
3-4 supported chipsets would make a great difference already.
FreeBSD should be fully suitable to run as home PC and w/out webcam
support at all it hardly can.
