How to use my webcamera take a picture


Most web cameras come with a compact disk that includes drivers and software. After plugging in the web camera via usb, you should put the disk that is included with the camera in the computer and install the included drivers and software. Generally, depending on the which camera you have, should have software that will allow you to take pictures and videos. Also, they're are freeware programs you can download off the internet that will allow you to take pictures with you're webcam. If you lost your disk or misplaced it, you can type in the model number for the webcamera on google and the software and drivers that are needed to use the webcam should be offered to download for free.
Hope this helps...if you need further help just ask.

How to install a webcam?


After plugging it into any USB port it should pop up automatically as a new device. You can check out the Device Manager under your Computer menu to look for it as well. The webcam may come with a disk you need to run to install programs, etc.

How do I setup my LUMIX FT-1 as a WEB CAM ?


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'.

Your camera is actually quite a new, and a nice camera. It doesn't make a lot of sense for Panasonic to make it work as a webcam, because it's a waste. And in any case, you'd expect a webcam to be powered by a wall outlet or the USB... but most modern cameras like yours don't come with adapter-power, they have battery chargers instead. And they take too much current to use the USB power. By the time they'd added the extras to make it work properly as a webcam, you could BUY a USB webcam separately.

Anyway, back to your question... 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 the sony site ("how to use a digital still camera as a webcam"); but most people will not have that yellow 'video in' connection.

Sorry this wasn't the news you really wanted.

I can't find the centrios website to download drivers for my digital camera. Where did it go?


You don't say which model the camera is. There is a driver for a Centrios webcam at THIS LINK, but I don't know if that is what you are after (and I haven't downloaded or tried it myself).

My computer won't recognize my camera when I try to load photos


Two Possibilities:

1) There's no driver installed, or the installation failed. ( A notification will say so when you plug it in ). Be shure the driver is setup properly.

2) The setting on the camera is set to "WebCam" and not "USB Disk"

In the settings menu, (Not the photo menu) on the camera there will be a USB Function option; this sets the camera up to behave like a cardreader and set the plugged in camera as an aditoional disk drive.
The other setting for the USB Function is "Web Cam" or "Digital Camera"; this will set the plugged in camera to behave as a USB Web Camera accessable to tv tuners or other recording or chat software.

To test, open the "My Computer" display of available hard drives, Disc Drives, Floppy Drives, and Memory Card Drives, then plug in the camera into the USB connector. A USB signal sound will alert you and a new drive should appear on the My Computer list, that's the camera.

If you don't get a new drive, then unplug the USB connector and enter the Menu on the camera, look for a USB function menu and set it to Disk drive, or whatever is not Web Cam function.

Note: This is for PC, and not Apple type computers, but I'm shure an Apple computer would be similar.

Cheers.
Richard.

Hello


Plug the camera into the computer using the usb cable supllied. When the removable disk appears in the "My Computer" section, right click it and click "format". Format at fat32 and then click start. This may take up to 1 minute to do depending on speed of computer and size of disk. If that fails, create a folder in the removable disk.
