    Default Camcorder as webcam?

    Hi Everyone

    Slightly off topic but is it possible to run my Sony PC109 as a web cam?

    I'm not starting a dodgy website or anything (honest) but I was going to buy a webcam and then thought this may be possible as the docking station has a USB streaming function on it.

    Please let me know your thoughts

    Cheers

    Matt

    Aren't all digital cameras set to switch off after five or six minutes if no buttons are pressed? Does your camera have a PC or Web Cam mode?

    all cameras have a webcam function if webcam is availble. any DV weather Fire wire or usb should work. I think in MSN messenger that it cuts out some of the picture as its a high resoluton.
