How do i use as web cam?

The manual talks about F5 and F6, but does not actually tell you how to use web cam. It says it can be used as web cam, but there is no button. Can't get other programs like Trillian to recognize that the camera is there. Please E-mail at

Re: how do i use as web cam?

I have one of these cameras and I can tell you that they should be sold in bubblegum machines for $1.00. There really isn't any practical uses for it other than very low grade pics. The manual was very roughly translated into English and hard to understand. As for using as a webcam, you will be very disappointed in lack of picture quality. I tried it through MSN with minimal success. It simply does not get recognized 90% of the time because of the poor electronic interface. Sorry

I will need to know the make and the model number to assist you better with this issue.

Want to use my camera as a web cam

It is actually impossible to use a digital camera as a web cam. Being that you can not use the camera when it's connected to your computer. When you connect your camera to your computer, your computer only sees it as a storage device. Like a hard drive or flash. What you can do, is make a video on your camera, connect it to your computer, then send it to who you'd like.

No Web Cam

I e-mailed the company and they gave me an answer. It works because the manual that comes with the camera doesn't tell you how to put the camera in Web Mode. This is a strait copy and paste of their answer:

Please note that you will have to set the camera to PC Camera mode before using the webcam function.

1. Press POWER/MENU.

2. Press FLASH/SET or showletter?box=inbox&msgid=3629_1629343_4317_1647_12263_0_114552_28869_2428414296&bodypart=2&yy=51794&y5beta=yes&y5beta=yes&order=down&sort=date&pos=0&view=a&head=b&idx=0

You do not actually need any software to use the Cam Corder.
Window Moviemaker[Part of XP] will handle the downloads.
Go to the makers web side- here you may be able to download a PDF of the manual.
