I have the same question. Before I buy a new camera, I would like to know if it will work with OpenCV.

Opencv could work with almost every video device because internally it could use GStreamer, FFMPEG, V4L2 on linux DS on Windows, and other video capturing backends! You can safely take any modern webcam.
