Web cams as action cam...

...Does anyone know if this is possible? My thoughts were to use an adaptor between USB and my camcorder.

Can't see why not, quality may be an issue though...

We have a waterproof digital camera and was pondering fitting a mount for it on the console so that videos could be taken while on the go. No idea if it would have worked and currently boatless!

Web cams mostly have no storage (they use the PC hard drive) and are powered via the PC.

Not sure about using a webcam as an "extension cam" to a cam corder.


I have a vision of a dell PC strapped to the A frame, with a petrol genny on the back deck and a 240volt 6 way extension lead connecting the 2

this looks interesting.
Water Proof cam with GPS

I have my eye on a HD Webcam for my new PC and was trying to justify the heafty pricetag. If however I could connect this to my DV Camcorder then the price would be more viable and I'd have something that would be far more flexible.

Oregon Scientific Action Cam 2 in Morrisons reduced to 29.98, bought one for my son, but won't be able to try it out before the weekend.
Waterproof to 3metres and comes with lots attachments.

Hope this helps.

Brian.

I have checked my local morrisons and no luck, i have ordered a MDV 80 clone, but noticed these after, they look more waterproof than the MDV 80 clone. Class 6 mini sd card needed.
