Question ID: 782313
I have a couple of Nikon Coolpix cameras that are frequently used for just picture taking. I want to know if it is possible to connect them to the PC as Webcams and how I do this. The Nikon website states that coolpix do not have the necessary connections. However, it states the same thing for all cameras. If this is true what is the connection that you need? I am currently connecting the camera via the digital in out port. Any help greatly appreciated.

You need a proper webcam with the appropriate driver - very few digital cameras can provide this without extreme modification (only for camera geeks with fancy SLR cameras) Either go buy yourself a £5/$10 webcam or ask me about connecting an Eyetoy for PS2 to function as a webcam (it can easily be done)
