Hello.
is there any programme out there which connected to a camera will automatically take the image without having to press any buttons and than its coverted to an image in the computer and flashed out through a projecter onto a screen.

Thanks in advance.

Basically you're describing a webcam. Does your camera have a webcam mode? If not you can just get one, they aren't that expensive.

You can do A LOT better on prices than that. At least... in the US you can. The only thing is, a webcam captures video. What WizMaster is saying sounds like still images.

You can take photos with a webcam.

You can do better than £3.99 in the US? I'm impressed.

Thats what threw me off. I guess I'm confused as to what WisMaster wants.

Hmm, maybe something with a self-timer?

Any generic camera with CoffeeCup software would work, wouldn't it?

I guess so, I've never bothered with web cams or anything so I'm not sure...

I guess that would work. Come to think of it, this post was started on the first of September :) I didn't realize I had revived such an old thread, I doubt the author is interested any more.
