World's greatest webcam??

so my sister lives in kuwait and we chat on Yahoo messenger. I thought I would be the good little brother and get us both webcams for when we chat.

Well, on a whim, I decided to hook up my XL1s via firewire and see if it would work. Sure enough, It works. Who would of thought it?

Now, I know some of you are thinking... Isn't that too much camera for such a menial task as online chatting, to which I ask you, is a HEMI to much motor for a moped? Of course not.

The possibilties are endless. Nest stop....XL-H!. That's right. High Def online chatting.

It's amazing what meaningless, triviel things you can come up with spare time on your hands. ;-)

I'm using 35mm as a web camera... works like a charm.

LOL!! I bet some use Varicams as well then!

The best video camera I've used myself for webcam was GS400.
