hi,

I'm planning to buy one of these cameras
OLYMPUS C8080 or NIKON Coolpix 8800.

Is there a way I can connect these cameras to a laptop and operate them remotely from the laptop. Do the cameras come with a software to do this or is there any other software.

Thanks in advance

As far as I can tell from these reviews, it appears that neither camera can do what you want.

Have a look through the Olympus forum http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/view_forum.php?id=22

and the Nikon forum http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/view_forum.php?id=21

Somebody there may be able to confirm.

No consolation to you I know, but I can do this with my Dimage A2 using Dimage Capture, haven't actually done it, but know I can.

These will work with the Olympus:

This one has a free shareware mode I think:

Cam2Com is freeware
