Hi, i 've Olympus CAMEDIA 470 Zoom digital camera. i want to use it as webcam. let me know if it can be used and how? will it really damage zoom or not/


If your has an A/V-out port and a cable that lets you output to a TV, you should be fine. If your computer already has a video input-many do, particularly ones marketed as media PCs-then you're all set: You can just plug the camera into your computer and turn on the camera.
If your computer doesn't have a video input, you can buy an inexpensive USB capture device for $5 to $10 on eBay, or a brand new EasyCap Video Capture Adapter for $15. The same device can let you watch TV on your computer, too, since the encoding hardware is the same-look for a TV-tuner-plus-video-capture USB adapter for $30 to $50 instead. You'll need to install the driver that comes with the device, but not the video-editing software. Simply run your favorite IM client; with the capture device's driver installed; the IM client should find your camera and let you use it as your webcam for video conferences.

I hooked up my Canon PowerShot to a desktop PC using a $15 video-capture dongle and simply ran iChat, selecting the video device as my input. I was videoconferencing within minutes.
With some cameras the audio will be sent along with the video. If that's not the case with yours, set your computer's audio input to its microphone.

Unfortunately you can't use the L19 as a webcam. It was designed to store images (and incidentally, videos) to memory. It was not designed to stream live video to another device.

I wanna download n install webcam driver how to do it?


http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/customersupport/

I would input the digital camera model number in the above site to view instructions for using it as a webcam.

I'm not sure if it is able to be used as a webcam, though, so don't be disappointed if it can't.

Webcam?


If you download the twain driver, your computer can manage the camera as any other optical input device, therefore , in that way you may use it as a webcamers.
However this camera had not been built to be a webcam and will not be recognised by messengers and similar software.

Better getting a cheap webcam instead.

Can i use a fuji f480 digital camera as a webcam? I dont have the cable or manuals to hand. thanks


Your camera has the video output port for this operation, but your computer will need to have a video input port (a yellow round hole). 
Check out this website for more info on your camera: http://www.steves-digicams.com/2007_reviews/fuji_f480.html

LZ7 As A Webcam


Hi,
I'm afraid it's not possible with this camera out of the box.
There *might* be some way to route video-out from the camera into your web application (if you have a video-in input in your computer), but it wouldn't be exactly easy and could prove problematic to get to work within webcam applications (msn, skype, aim, etc)

Using the Dsc - F505 as a Web Cam!?


I use my F505 as a webcam sometimes. Software you need can be downloaded from http://surveyorcorp.com/webcam32/ (supports simple FTP transfer of pictures to the webserver, or "direct" stream using an java applet connecting to your machine) You also need video input in your PC. Some (few) video cards can do this, or purchase a tv card (i am using haupauge). This all runs smoothly
