Question about Epson PhotoPC 3000Z Digital Camera

Is it possible to use the PC 3000z as a webcam? So need a program that takes shots with a time interval and puts them on the harddisk automatically... I already tried the programs of Epson self but nowhere i can set a picture taking with time interval.

Have you installed Sierra Image Expert, with this installed go to menue item Camera, and click on View or Get All etc.I do have a problem with this program in that it will not make a new directorey but this can be overcome by first making the new directorey with Explorer. The sound on the camera can be adjusted or turned down.

Re: Is it possible to use the PC 3000z as a webcam? So...

I bought a 3000Z but can't get it to download using USB, it works ok using the serial port, but that is very slow. I'm using Windows 98 SE. My USB ports are ok because I use other devices on them. When trying to hook up the camera I never get a new hardware found indication, I tried MS and Epson online for possible driver updates and couldn't find anything to help. I'm thinking there is a problem with the camera. It also makes a rather loud snap type sound when the shutter button is pressed, this may be normal but it seems louder than I've heard on other digital cameras. Anyone have any suggestions or should I send the camera back as defective?

I took a video on my Canon Power Shot SD1100 IS, I didn't realize it was in Time lapse mode. Is there a program I can use to switch it to standard mode once it's been downloaded onto my...


No. Time lapse takes one picture every whatever interval you set. For example, one picture every 10 seconds. Nothing is recorded for the 9 seconds inbetween so no software program can make up what was supposed to be there.

You also may have a faulty hot shoe adapter or pc cord. Check them with an ohm meter, or with an old 35 mm camera. Or just short out the hot shoe contacts with a piece of metal and see if the strobes flash.

Purple Tint Sky


auto white balance should work OK. I was thinking maybe you had accidentally switched it to the Fixed setting. Hmm. You said you were using Normal and Landscape modes. Just to see how it works, I would suggest switching from Program mode to Full Auto. See if that fixes your purple skies. I don't know why it would, but it is something to try

3000z Landscape Mode Broken!


If you are thinking you need to get to minimum aperture to maximize depth of field, keep in mind that the depth of field is determined by the PHYSICAL size of the iris, not the RELATIVE value (which is what the f-stop measures) -- for example, on a 35 mm camera, a 28 mm lens at f5.6 will have much greater dof than a 200mm lens at f5.6 - because the actual iris opening is effectively 5 mm on the wideangle, but almost 36 mm on the telephoto. The physical apertures on digital cams, with their MUCH shorter real (not 35mm equiv) focal lengths, range from effectively about 7 mm at max telephoto wide open to *less than 1mm* at wide angle stopped all the way down. The issue with digicams is not that you have too little dof, but that it is a real pain in the a$$ to try and not have too much dof for portraits and such. I'm guessing the Epson firmware deliberately tries to avoid the max aperture for two reasons - to avoid camera shake at slow shutter speeds (are you shooting at telephoto zoom lengths?) and to avoid essentially turning the camera into a pinhole Brownie, with the inherent edge distortion that will occur. You seem to have written off the epson and are looking (really hard, IMO) for reasons to make sure that you've made the right decision. If you are unhappy with it, it will be hard to swing the pendulum in the other direction (speaking from personal experience after I bought a Kodak 240 and decided I wanted something "more"). You might as well return it and move on to the next contestant.

Continous burst mode


The Movie Mode takes very low resolution frames and can be re-played frame-by-frame.

Use the Continuous Mode for resolutions 2,048x1,536 or 1,600x1,200 or 640x480 get more details than movie.

For higher frame rates, use 1,600x1,200 and you can get quite good photos.

Sony Cyber Shot,, have real video for USB? Like a Web Cam


This model is likely to overheat and fail. As such the maker does not supply a webcam software. This will be true of most digital cameras. The ones that can survive 24x7 hour operation usually come with webcam software.

I believe the 300 is the same as the 3030 in flash mode you can choose one of the slow sink modes to accomplish this, I am sure there are other ways to do this as well. You will probrably get some better answers from Barry or the other pros.
