Digital Camera for Webcam use?

Is it possible to use my existing DC as a Webcam?
I don't really want to spend more money on a Webcam if I can set up my DC in XP to do the same thing.

Yep can appparently do it on my Olympus...never bothered. Could also do it on a camcorder, never bothered. Easiest just to get a webcam £30 NX Pro £60 Logitech 4000 saves messing around.

I'd have to agree with byfordr.
I have a mini dv and digital camera and looked into the possibility of useing them.
Then I saw the NX Pro for £30 on Amazon and though...Nahhh, I'll just buy that and save messing around.

It's not the camera that's the problem you need a good fast computer and Broadband to send and receive
