Aside from get viruses and spyware that is... Anyways, my Canon a510 when connected to an XP SP2 machine has an option to "take picture now" while connected via USB. This lets you control the camera 'remotely' which is a fairly useless feature, except when you need it... I've got use for just such a feature and can't figure out how to make it work on my mini. I'd like to be able to do this with my Canon, but if that fails some suggestions of cameras that can do it would be good (only need 1-2mp's for this), and if it's something OSX can't do at all, some recommendations of 1mp webcams would be good (cheap is better with this as well, but VGA resolution is not enough - 1mp is the minimum I'm look for). Thanks!
