    Hi all,

    You know when you take pictures on photo booth it automatically uses the built in iSight Camera. Well I want to be able to plug my camera into photo booth so it takes pictures through the camera that is connected to my computer. I only have a USB cable and when I plug it in it gives me the option on my camera that says PC Connect and when I press that nothing happens.

    Please help, I need to do this for tomorrow!!

    Thanks in advance.

    Is using your camera as a webcam a feature that your camera supports?

    The SD5 should work as a webcam. But I am not able to fond anything else on how to get it to actually work. Sorry. Maybe someone else knows.
