Can this be done?
i know that the camera technically acts like a full motion camera especially since it has the A/V out.
Is there an interface or card that would allow me to input that A/ into a webcame use for intenet net meetings and stuff??
i know this isnt the intention of the camera but i figure it has to be possible
please correct me if i'm wrong.

Re: Using the Dsc - F505 as a Web Cam!?
I use my F505 as a webcam sometimes. Software you need can be downloaded from
(supports simple FTP transfer of pictures to the webserver, or "direct" stream using an java applet connecting to your machine)
You also need video input in your PC. Some (few) video cards can do this, or purchase a tv card (i am using haupauge). This all runs smoothly

Had the serial port working before? If not, try this, disable the infered port and click start choose IBM Thinkpad 760 open it and locate the com1 (serial) and enable it. It should work fine.
I bought a Hama skylight filter for the express purpose of protecting the lens. I've not noticed any degradation in image quality. Of course, ultimately the filter will block some of the light that's hitting the CCD, but it's so little as to not be noticeable.
Being as the lens cap clips into the thread of the lens then yes, it does still fit perfectly into the thread of the filter, so no problem there!
SInce the only storage option on the F505 is Memorystick, you would need a memorystick reader. Sony has a MemoryStick/PCMCIA adapter card that would fit in standard PCCard slots. Once the images are in your computer they are standard JPEGs. Go to the Cybershot forum on http://www.mavican.com and ask what the F55 Mac users do. It also uses only memorysticks.
