after a couple of hours of searching on the forums and amazon, looking for a good deal on a webcam, someone gave me the friggin obvious idea of using my camcorder. it's connected by firewire, and the video seems to work great for skype. the problem is the on-board mic on my powerbook is crap and the audio is all windy on the other end.
i can't seem to get my powerbook to recognize my bluetooth headset either. i do have a couple of mics i could use but then i have to hold them or set them up somehow.
basically i'm just wondering if it's possible to get the audio from the on-board mic on the camcorder through the firewire?
thanks in advance

Maybe, go into System Preferences and look into the Sound icon.
For iChat, use it's Preferences where you can choose which mic to use in the Audio/Video tab.
Use System Preferences to first sync to your bluetooth head set.CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.
