Sorry if I speak a very bad english, first, I want to know if is posible to use the C-770 as a Webcam or scanner trought the usb.

Second if is posible to make a night shot with more than 15 seconds of exposure.

and third, do the control mode of the camera have another use than change to raw format?

and finally the fourth question and the last, why is better to have the photos in raw format?

Thanks a lot for the answers....

Hi epsiloom,

1a - It is very hard to be used as WEB camera. It could be done with the LCD monitor of the camera (very low resolution) with bad frequency < 1 frame/sec.

1b - For A4/letter format documents the resolution is OK.

2 - No, as far as I know.

3 - You can make pictures with commands from your computer. Some guys (sort of programmers) are even trying to jump over the 15s limit.

4 - RAW is better than JPG because you have to think only for aperture, shutter speed, ISO and focus. All the other parameters are tuned later.

Enjoy your 770uz - it is the best of the Oly ultra zoom series.
