i would expect either to work just fine, but you have a camera ribbon connector may as well use it and keep the usb slot open

Hi Shun Jian Lee,

I've used C615 and C525 with my RasPi 2.

I have a live demo up for them on my site if you want to take a test drive for yourself. Bear in mind I'm not using full resolution at all, because I've optimized video for speed rather than quality.

Talking about local cost here, those are both more expensive than the new RPi camera module, and require a very precious USB port on your RPi.

The RPi camera as linked above should in most situations, be a better choice, but not all.
