To be honest, it's like using a Rolls Royce to haul manure.

There's no video out on this camera which you could hook up to a digitizer that's webcam compatible...but the thing is with better digital cameras is the CCDs do heat up over time which produces noise, and you can get hot/stuck/dead pixels over extended use.

Better to just get a high quality CMOS based (instead of CCD based) webcam.
