SOURCE: Can I use my little

Many people ask if they can use their digital camera as a webcam. In the early days of digital imaging, it made sense to dual-function a camera because a webcam was a serious investment. However, webcams are now so inexpensive that manufacturers are not considering this functionality important in their digital cameras. In fact even the word 'webcam' creates the impression of bad imaging, so associating this function with a camera actually makes the camera seem 'cheap'.

So, why do so many people ask if they can do this? I believe it's caused by the 'grandfathered camera' problem. Advances in camera design have been so stunning in the last few years that it makes no sense to use an old camera when you could use a new one and get better pictures. But what do you do with the old camera? This is where people start thinking "I wonder if I can use this as a webcam?".

So, can your camera be used as a webcam? Probably not, but here's how you can tell. Make sure you've installed all the software you can find for your camera, power it up, and plug it in. Windows will tell you if it has a webcam function. If it's a webcam, then it will appear in "My Computer" as a device, right along with all the disk drives. To be sure, go to your control panel and select "Scanners and Cameras". Is your camera listed? If not... it's not a webcam.

In the unlikely event that you have a 'video in' on your computer, and that your camera has a 'video out' then you can follow the instructions on the sony site ("how to use a digital still camera as a webcam"); but most people will not have that yellow 'video in' connection. Also, in the case of your DSC-W170 you'll have to use the 'multi-use connector' to get the video out signal.

Can i use Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 as webcam and how?


Yes you can use DCS-S700 sony cybershot as a webcam but you must first have the TV tuner card that accepts AV input from an RCA cable (red, yellow and white wire) which is free when you buy the camera (included in the BOX). Sets your TV tuning software (I've used "honestech" software) to receive Composite Input. After setting, close the TV tuning software. Then sets your messenger or any net conferencing software to accept the TV tuner card as your webcam.Yurika!!! It works for me and the videos are very clear. Except only that the focus box of the camera don't disappear.
Even I've used it to document my birthday party from morning to afternoon recording the video directly to my computer without any problem.

Oppss. Dont forget to rate me.
