Hi everyone, I am looking for a set up to use as a web cam toup load live (1 to 5min intrevel's) images for use on a onlinecommunity bulletin board here in Alaska. I understand there is software that would support differentolympus digital camera's for this purpose. I would like to mount the camera in a heated weather proof housing and connect to a pc that would up load the images to the web hosting company via dsl. The camera would face Kachemak Bay and the mountains due south. During the afternoon, the camera could be looking toward's the sun and am not sure if it would require a filter. I stumbled into a Olympus developement web page and found a list of there camera's that would work with remote softaware. I thought the C-750 UZ may work for this application as it had a X10 lenes and could be purchased for around $300 US on line. I have been looking for web cams for months and they all produce poor images. I finally found a internet ready 1.2Mp web cam but is priced at over $5000 Us! There are onlya few web cams here in Alaska, and none in Homer whereI live. I have A million dollar viewof the ocean and glacier's right out my front door that would look great on line.I'm quite suprised todiscover the digital camera manufacture's are not producing a mega pixel web cam?Has any one here tryed to do this? And if so, what equipment? Thank's from the frozen north.

Ask in the Olympus forum. There are a few RC software packages available... the names of which escape me... :-?
