Hi

can someone tell me if I can use the above camera as a webcam? if so, how do I go about it? I've tried just plugging into the PC but no joy. I am running XP home

Many thanks

Short Answer:

No.

Long Answer:

As with most P&S digicams, the Samsung Digimax 301 can record videos, but it can't send the video through the USB port the way a webcam does.

Also, as with most P&S digicams, it can send video to a TV. If your computer has a video capture or video-in port, then you may be able to send live video to the computer, but you'll only be able to record it or watch it on your own screen, via the software that supports your video capture or video-in port.
