by Ronshep / November 10, 2005 3:38 AM PST

I would like to connect my camera to the laptop (Dell Inspiron 8200 running XP)so I can see the subject on the screen before I take the picture. Is this possible and if so how ? Thank you. Ronshep.

a camcorder is the only way I know of. If your camera has a video function it might. Check out the Olympus website.

Remote Capture

Looking at the available features, I would think you can do remote capture with that camera.

After 30 minutes of searching, I can not prove it.

It will take a software program for the computer.

You might try some Google searches.
"remote capture" should be included in your search string.
