I was just wondering... because I don't have a web cam that is compatible with my mac (eMac OS X 10.3.9). So I thought I may be able to connect my digital camera (Nikon Coolpix 5600) and use it as a web cam through MSN messenger?
The thing is, I can't see anything around anywhere that will let me do this.
So first question... Can it be done?
Second one being... How?

Not with most cameras...
I believe some have a feature like this, but it is very rare.
You say don't don't have an OS X compatible cam - does that mean you have a PC webcam? If so you might be able to use it with your mac using the USB webcam driver for iChat.
Even if you don't already have one, it might be of interest as you could get any old cam and it should work...
Google for it...

I tried using my webcam, and it isn't recognised at all.
I don't have a camcorder either.
Oh well, nevermind. I'll just use my PC when I want to use it. Thanks anyway.
