YES YOU CAN. GE CAMERAS COME WITH VIDEO AND AUDIO RCA OUT CABLES. YOU HAVE TO GET A MINI VIDEO RECORDER for your PC and channel that to your WEBCAM APP

No, none of the GE digital cameras have a webcam function. However I personally own a Vimicro webcam, purchased from Ebay, and I love it. The resolution and frame rate are wonderful and it was only 20 bucks.

I did some research on GE's web site and found no evidence at all that this model supports webcam function. Not alot of digital cameras do anymore-may be cheaper and easier to just buy a dedicated web cam and you also get the right software included

I want to use olympus c-160 as webcam?is that possible???if yes then plz tell me


It is not possible to use any Olympus camera as a webcam. The cameras are not designed with this kind of functionality. Buy a webcam from Logitech that is made exclusively for this purpose.

It would rust the metal and solder points in the camera and probably dilute the grease in the gears.

LZ7 As A Webcam


Hi,
I'm afraid it's not possible with this camera out of the box.
There *might* be some way to route video-out from the camera into your web application (if you have a video-in input in your computer), but it wouldn't be exactly easy and could prove problematic to get to work within webcam applications (msn, skype, aim, etc)

Webcam


With the camera focus away from press the left curved button to record video. To use as a webcam hook the usb cable to your computer, and open the software that came with your computer. Press that same button and in the software you will see the webcam. Or you can use your chat program to access the webcam.
