    if you ask this question, it's because yours can't do it :wink:

    I know some digital camera have this function but it's not common. What model is yours?

    that's the brand, not the model!

    if you plug it in, and you try to cam, your computer should recognize it as a webcam if it has such a function. if it is a camera that can record videos, there's a better chance that it'll work. In my case, I sometimes use a camcorder as a webcam; it doesn't work if I plug it in with the usb input, only with the firewire input, though.
