to choose suitable camera depends on some specs you did not provide.
will be used in interior or exterior?
do you need night vision?
motion detection?
what is desired resolution?
static or movable?
sound recording or not?
powered by AC or POE?
etc
etc

there is a lot of specs to choose.
I personally have good experience with Vivotek products

then e,g, Vivotek IP8133:
it has decent resolution 1280x800, move detection, and audio input, supports H.264 compresion, LED, built-in microphone, supports POE if needed but can be standard AC

I do not know what is a reasonable price for you, this model when I am looking on local market is for 170€ with VAT (140€ without VAT)

A bit cheaper is AirLive AirCam CU-720PIR (about 145€ with VAT here

Thanks, but I was hoping for a more discrete camera. These ones really say: "smile, you re on camera". Goal is to put them next to my television in the livingroom so a small unnoticable grey camera would do. Unless there is a camera which I could integrate into the light at my frontdoor.
