Can I use my Kodak P850 as a webcam

I have a Kodak P850 digital camera and I was wondering if I could use it as a web-cam by directly plugging into the pc ... I have windows XP o/s.
Is there any additional software that I would need and only there seems not to be any mention of this in the user guide.
Many thanks in anticipation of a reply.

How do i use it as web cam Kodak v350

Almost no digital camera can be used as webcam, because without the correct software the computer will not recognise it as a web cam and won't be able to put through the images that come from the camera's sensor. Most digital camera's won't allow you to put live view on, was soon as an USB cable is conneted.

I do not think you can use this camera as a web cam unless your computer has a port for the A/V cables to plug into like on a tv.

My P850 will not turn on. It opens the flash and a motor sound and thats all. Have tried new battries nothing.

If your cam use AA batt.:
Pls. use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher).
Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery
Remove the battery
Clean the metal contacts on the battery using a clean cloth

According to Kodak, the rubber eyepiece is not available for purchase, you have to send it to them to get it fixed...I would try to take it to a local camera repair shop and let them do it.

Can it work as a webcam?

Yes---all Kodak cameras can be used as web cams by using the supplied USB cord to connect the camera, going to "My Computer", and then clicking on the camera's icon. This should enable the instantaneous viewing of the camera.
