As far as I know, the R-Pi cannot handle 1080p/30 webcams via USB because the USB system as implemented on the R-Pi is not fast enough. It does support that resolution with a special custom-made camera that connects via a small flex cable (see for example, http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/1254 and http://elinux.org/RPi_Low-level_peripherals#MIPI_CSI-2 ) but that device has not yet been released. It is expected at some time in 2013, but exact date unknown.

They will probably work at lower resolutions, but to get 1080p30 you will probably need to wait for the Foundations camera module - out soon.
