Canon VC-C4 connection problem

I am attempting to connect a canon VC-C4 webcam to my laptop. It connects through RS232 and I have connected it to the COM port on the back of my laptop. When i boot the control software it gives an error saying CoM1 open error. Can you help me solve this? Should there be a driver that I have to download? I am clueless...

DO you realize that this camera cost around 900 US$? - Might be a little overkill for VOIP.
Apart form that it is an excellent camera. Have look at the manual here.
The camera connects via RS232 (9DSub) or 8pin DSub and you can/have to download the software form Canon's web page.

SOURCE: Look to find remote and power supply for vc-c4

The VC-C4 uses a Canon WL-V5 remote control, available at B&H Photo here. They also have a power supply for the VC-C50 here. The VC-C50 is almost identical in specification to the VC-C4, it's just a newer model. The electrical power requirements are the same.

I need a laptop with RS232 port. What model should I get?


RS232 is now not being fitted to laptops This has become old technology. If you have devices that require connecting via an RS232 There are USB cables that emulate the connections of an RS232 that can be set to a com port to fool the device that it has the rightr connection. Look on Ebay there are quite a few at various prices, most from Hong Kong. I have bought aqnd used them to connect my radio scanners and Scancat software to program Amateur radios quite succesfully, as well as to run my old HP A3 scanner

Make sure you are connecting with the video link icon and not the teleophone green icon when calling the other person. This is so you are making a video connection not just making a call.

Hope it works!
