Question about Digital Cameras

5 Answers

I have had my Philips webcam for 2 years. My son gave it to me and he installed it. I was not very up on these things and I have used it for 2 years without a problem. a couple of months ago I had a virus on my computer and we had to complete un load it and my daughter reinstalled everything but the cam. Because I didn't install it in the first place I had no installing dist or any other information to reinstall without a disc. I need to know who can help me install without a disc.

It is not recognised by Skype even though the camera is lit. I have no handbook or instructions of any kind. I'm running on XP and have no idea if drivers are needed.


Unless you've got a good reason for thinking that this camera can work as a webcam, it probably can't.

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 http://esupport.sony.com/perl/model-tutorials.pl?mdl=DSCp200 on the sony site; but most people will not have that yellow 'video in' connection.

Your camera doesn't work as a webcam? No, I thought not. Here's a different suggestion for what to do with that old camera: keep it in a different place. Seriously, keep it in the car, at work, or at the cottage. One day, something interesting will happen there, and you'll be grateful of a camera with ANY resolution, even that old one!

Samsung Digimax as a webcam??


I know this isn't the answer you wanted to see, but no. The V800 was designed as a camera, storing images (and videos) to a memory card, not to stream them live to another device.

I keep getting "Battery Exhausted" messages, with new batteries


you have to use only very good quality batteries ...I have a philips..and if I do not put alcaline quality bateries in it ..it do not even power up ....and even with this expensive ones it eats 'em like snacks...
by the way ...keep the batteries inside only when you shoot cause all this new cameras with display and so ...consumes the batteries even when they are powered off ..
my advise is to buy some accumulators the kind you charge on the home power plug.....so in this way .. you will always have strong power into them ..and the cost its worthily ..

I have a Kodak Easy Share Camera ANd I have a charger, had this for 2 years and now the charger shows green when charged but will not open the lense


Mine did the same thing and I found out that the battery door was not completely closing. I put a rubber band around it to put pressure on the little battery door and it worked. My son's camera did the same thing.

Xp Installation disk Have Vista...


I did some more searching, and discovered that apparently Sakar produced a Vista driver for this camera shortly after I gave up on it last year. (Their support staff said they would notify me if a Vista driver became available, but oh well.)

In any case, there is now a Vista driver for the Crayola camera available on the Sakar website:
