Re: help

I believe you need the USB cable and you hook it to the computer and install the software that came with the camera and it should work, I have an A520 and at one time I had it hooked to my computer and really never hooked it up as webcam but I believe the option was there

Can i use Kodak EasyShare C613 a web cam for pc ?

The short answer is "No". This camera does not have a Web Cam Mode. You can record short movie clips but it doesn't support Live View or a Hardware-based Web-Cam operating mode.

Sorry. :(

But you can find web cams for around $20 USD.

Hope this answers your question.

Can kodak m863 can be used as a web cam& if yes then how to install it

The camera has to support streaming. If there is a streaming setting in the menu, then it will work as a web cam. If not, no, it will not work as a web cam. Most movie cameras have streaming, most still cameras do not (The image resolution is WAY too high, makes the camera really slow as a web cam)

Setting up Digital Camera as web cam

I can't get mine to run as web cam either, but run it from mains power with an adapter I got.

Its a small transformer with variable voltage and I set it to 3volts or whatever and then plug in the appropriate connection out of the range of connectors that came with the transformer (its thin and long).
Even then the connection is not very good and I need to make sure the camera stays still or it looses power.
