I've been looking into a camcorder for use as a webcam, since all the webcams I have found don't seem to be up to the task I have in mind.
My biggest issue is finding camcorders can can even be used as a webcam, either natively or through a 3rd party software such as DVDriver. DVDriver requires that the camera have an IEEE 1394 port, but it seems that this is not a common thing on camcorders now like it was years ago.
Capability to record in 1080p and a wide angle lens would also be useful.
Does anyone know of any camcorders that are capable of this, or a resource where I can find more information on camcorders? My searches of the Sony, Canon and other manufactures websites has turned up very little in the way of useful information.
