Summary: I bought a mini camcorder in 2005, and this past Oct/10 in Fla. it got stolen out of my rental car. I didn't like the newer model, too small and not sharp picture, so I was so happy to find the mimi camcorder on E-Bay, Fran, Bellingha, Ma
Summary: I have been looking for an "older" mini-dv type camcorder for sometime now. It appears through some research that these type of camcorders with the firewire output are the only ones that can be used to stream live video for use as a webcam. This little Sony does the trick. It's output through the firewire port is instantly recognized by my MacBook Pro through various software (iMovie, Firefox, Skype, Photo Booth, etc).
