    On TechTV they showed a company, AuctionDrop, which used a camera on a
    tripod and the image from the camera was displayed on the Computer
    Monitor in a Window on the screen. They were able to move the camera
    to manipulate the picture (size/position/name) on screen and take the
    picture on screen. They were nice clear pictures.

    Does anyone know of software/cameras which will work this way?

    Some have mentioned various Olympus cameras can do this with Camedia
    software.. and someone else a Canon G series camera. Do any other
    Canons do this? I have a Canon SD100 Elph.. and an HP Photosmart 850.

    What specific cameras do this? Thanks.

  2. Many digital cameras provide a video-out (NTSC/PAL) feed. If your computer has a video-in
    capability such as with an ATI All-in-One Wonder or ATI Wonder VE card you can then see the
    live video feed on the PC.

    There are about 30 - 40 Canon models that have this capability.

    Canon has some information.

    My CanonS200elf came bundled with RemoteCapture.
    maybe it would work on other canon models?

  5. Like the Rebel EOS 300D - sure does.

    In addition:
    If you post to UseNet with your TRUE, not a munged, email address then you have invited the
    swen Internet worm [aka; W32/Gibe-F] to visit you.

    The Swen is news spelled backwards. The reason it is called this is because the Swen worm
    harvests email addresses from UseNet News Groups. It has an engine that allows it to post
    itself to UseNet News Groups and well as it has its own email engine. From the list of
    email addresses that it has harvested, it will then email itself to those addresses.
