Hello, I am trying to get started with OpenCV and I am trying to find a nice HD webcam to use OpenCV on Linux Ubuntu on.

I found: Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 from the other post to seem quite cool, however I don't know if it works with Linux or not.

Can anyone suggest a good, clear HD camera that they have used with OpenCV on Linux?

The most of web cameras in Linux supported by UVC driver. You can use project web page to check compatibility with UVC driver. There are several additional web camera drivers from different vendors also. If you use Ubuntu you can start from here.
