    Webcam Xt

    I have a minolta Dimage Xt, and I think it should work as a webcam too, but there isn't anything helpful on the booklet. How do I know if it can be used as a webcam and how do I put it to work as one? Thanks in advance.

    Re: Webcam Xt

    Given that you can buy a decent Webcam for $20 these days - that would be what I would do (and in fact did).

    That will yield better results, and be cheaper in the end, than trying to adapt the Xt for unintended uses.

    Re: Webcam Xt

    Thanks Clemmie, I probably will buy one of those cameras, it's just that when I bought the Xt ( a long time ago ) I tought it would be cool to use the webcam function, obviously it wasn't anywhere near a priority, but it would be nice tough.

    You should be able to use the Xt as a webcam - you need to install the Remote Camera driver. Check pg98 of the manual.

    Good luck!

    My manual only has 32 pages, and I can't find anything related to that online.

    Sorry - thought the online one and the one you had would be the same. Check here. You want page 50 of the pdf which is 98 of the manual.

    I can't believe this, I read the pdf but I can't find the cd anywhere. Sorry to bother you again Mig, but do you know where I can get the driver? Thanks

    That will generate better outcomes, and be less expensive in the end, than trying to evolve the Xt for random uses.
