I got sony cybershot dsc p 200 model digital camera. But it is not supported as web cam . Please give suggestions to set up the camera as web cam


Many digital cameras support streaming video over the USB connection, to use as a webcam. Unfortunately Sony cameras do not do this; I am confident of this, because they offer a tutorial describing how to make an analogue connection from your camera to your computer, for use as a webcam! (I feel this is a poor solution because few computers have an analogue video-in connection, and not all cameras have a video-out. They would not offer this solution if the USB streaming was possible.)

I'm sorry to tell you that unless you are really lucky and are able to follow Sony's tutorial, your best bet is to buy a webcam and forget using your camera. A whole webcam could easily be cheaper than the cable that Sony suggest you use...

Can i use canon sx 20 is digital camera as web cam?


No. It's not designed to be used in that way and so completely lacks the hardware to enable it to output a live video feed.

How can i use sony w35 digital camera as web cam ?


Unfortunately you can't. The DSC-W35 is designed to store images (and incidentally videos) to memory, not to stream live videos to another device.

I know that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

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)
