I have a pentax optio 50 digital camera. And I know it can be set up as a web cam to but I can not seem to figure out how to do it. I have windows xp. I can get it connected to download the pictures I take off of it. But I can not seem to get it to work for a web cam. Any help would be greatfully appriciated.
Thanks in advance
I can't get mine to run as web cam either, but run it from mains power with an adapter I got.
Its a small transformer with variable voltage and I set it to 3volts or whatever and then plug in the appropriate connection out of the range of connectors that came with the transformer (its thin and long). Even then the connection is not very good and I need to make sure the camera stays still or it looses power.

Thanks for posting the photos.....they tell a lot.
You need to return that camera and get a refund.
The camera is defective.
The first two photos were taken under good lighting conditions and you should have gotten good shots.
The last two were taken at low light and the camera was using 1/30th of a second shutter speeds which could account for some blurring due to camera movement.
The last one appeared to be a flash shot and it selected 1/30th second. Not a good thing for the camera to do.
But all photos have the appearance that you are shooting through a fog.
And all photos were shot with an ISO setting of 200.
There is something wrong with this camera for that to happen on the first two shots.
I checked the EXIF data that is embedded in the photos. That gives you the shutter speed, aperture setting and focal length, ISO settings, and other information.
I have not seen a review of the Pentax Optio 50. But the older S50 did not get good reviews.
If I were you, I would look for a different brand of camera.
For a few dollars more you can get a Nikon 5600.
