    actually, when you ask me if i am Ling Nightsky, i immediately thought of isomers007 before i turned and look
    It was a very nice surprise... anyway, the moon shot didn't turn out good..... i still need to take lots of pix to improve. My cam is not good enough to take details of the moon, it just appears as a ball of bright light.

    Hey Ling i actually have the same situation as you noe! I bought a lousy 40i yesterday at AP (for 635 with pouch and 64mb) n after reading this tread i quickly went to AP and change another model. Haha thank got they allow me to change and now i'm using the D 2030. really love it alot, much much much nicer.

    -=Using of Digicam as webcam=-
    Is it advisable?
    An assay reply by Flare

    Pop it on the docking bay, and all in the wired world can see me dig my nose and scratch my chest (pics I see from my firend's webcam). Other than the issue of forgetting to switch it off when the weather is too hot and showing your curves to the wired world while changing into something more comfortable, There are some more technical issues. Life spend of the CCD.

    Someone in the forum mentioned that CCD lifespendnis typically around 40k images. And based on my timing, Ling, your are refreshing the webcam image at one every 10 seconds (or am I wrong?) That would be 6 images a minute, 360 images in an hour. And a typical day of surfing is of around 2 hours (I get glued to clubsnap for an hour everydy), that would be 720 images a day. In a month, that will reach 21600 images. You would hit 40k images in just 2 months... Though I believe a CCD is capable of surving for more than 40k images, are you willing to risk the electronic wear and tear of using it as a web cam?

    Though, I don't think any of us would mind seeing you everyday but, this is something I just want to mention. Why not get a dedicated webcam that 5typically cost less than S$100.

    P/S: All the old birds, does my analysis hold truth?

    Haha and the service they provide is pretty good, but i think they are trying very hard to sell 40i, cos they are pushing very hard and even dare to tell me its 3.3mp true CCD! what nonsense.

    Anyway i just post a nite shot i'd taken just now. This is debte for my C2040 so my hands shake alot. but i'll try to improve my skills very time.

    yes, i've heard it's not good to use digital cam as webcam... but i don't leave my webcam on for more than an hour... i usually just grab a few images and then upload via ftp.... which takes a few minutes. usually i don't go "live" coz i feel it's weird to have people watching me... that's why i don't tell people if i'm on cam or not.. haha!
