I have an old 5 megapixel Sony Cybershot DSC (I think it's this one) lying around somewhere, and since it is pretty much obsolete (but it shoots great quality 640x480 video) I keep wondering if I could hack it and use it as a webcam somehow.
Did anyone ever attempt to do such a thing? The camera has a usb data transfer cable and a composite video out but you probably can't screw with the software to feed video through those while you're shooting it. But how hard could it be to leech live video off of some point on it's way to the memory card or something?
I have some experience with arduinos and whatnot but I have a feeling that you shouldn't need one to pull this off.
Don't know much about how cameras are wired though. What do you guys think?
