this is to be expanded but I remember wehn I was selling cameras in 2001 and how canon cameras were now able to be used as a webcam. amazing! now try and find one ;( — why? sure, webcams are cheap and everywhere but it is a stupid FIRMWARE hack that is ALREADY THERE! plus, they quality of my $300 digicam surely outshines my $20 logitech piece o crap with its plastic distorted lens and crappy signal to noise ratio….why???
