    You can!

    1. Turn on camera.
    1 1/2. Open/remove lens cover.
    2. Look at display
    3. Be amazed! Whatever you're pointing it at will be displayed in the cameras tiny monitor.

    Worked for me without adapting my monitor :D amazing ;)

    By the way, I made this as a joke. The website on bored.com does't really take pictures. It just shows a random picture every time.
