Canon VIZCAM 1000

I recently purchased a used VIZCAM on e-bay to use in my classroom. It only came with the camera and the power supply. I want to use it with my Laptop and a SmartBoard. What type of cables do I need? Are ther any instruction manuals (or copies) available. I would also like to know how other teachers us the VIZCAM in the classroom.

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.

My web cam wont work

No, most likely some resident software is accessing the camera, or the camera needs updated drivers. try updating to the newest software and make sure the cam software isnt booting up before the MSN client

Recently bought the VX-1000. It shows up great on the camera in "My Computer" but anything else it does not get recognized. In fact even on the "my computer" it shows up as camera #3. I only have 1 camera...

I have the same model. I enjoyed some 'opportunities' getting it installed and working properly. Start by disconnecting the camera. Since you have downloaded the latest version of the software, uninstall the existing software. Open Device Manager. I image that is where you are seeing the multiple cameras. Right click on each camera and uninstall it. The computer should now be free of cameras and software. Turn the computer off and leave it off for at least 30 seconds. Restart the computer and let it start-up completely. Now install the new software. At the end of the installation you will be prompted to connect the camera and do some configuration.

I found it worked better for me to use a different microphone, but that's optional.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works out for you!

Canon Vizcam 1000 fading fast

Hello Pelota, Here is what is happening, most web cams are charge-coupled device CCD type image devices they work by caturing the image as it changes the charge along the surface of a capacitive matrix. Over time this matrix begins to break down. This is what you are experiencing. The cheaper the camera the faster the breakdown of the matrix. It can not be helped. The fact is as all of these digital cameras get older they will begin the dim and have poor color resolution due to the CCD matrix decaying. I hope this helps.

There must be a driver conflict with the graphics, try uninstalling the cam software and re installing and use a different usb port. I assume there are no lines after a reboot so update your pc's graphics card driver and the latest driver for the cam. If you are having general graphic problems, go to My computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and in the list look for graphics adapter, click on the '+' sign to your graphics adapter and right click and select uninstal. reboot pc and the graphics controller will be re installed and the driver also automatically
