Webcam Software?

Hey guys and gals, I am playing around with a old Pentax 110 camera and I noticed that my cheap Labtec webcam fits almost perfect in the backing of the camera. This works VERY well because I have numerous lenses that I can switch out. I immediatly noticed the quality of the image is many time better doing this. The main problem I have is the webcam fits perfect rotated sideways. When I use the cam the video/pics are all rotated. Is there any software that will run on a PC that will rotate this for me? Also out of curiosity is there anyway via firmware update, software etc... to increase the overall size of the image or is it hardware dependant? I appreciate any help I can get. Thanks, Jester

Underground Webcam

I have a problem with the city Department of Public Works. There is a collapsed culvert in my backyard, which causes my yard and basement to flood. I am trying to come up with some footage to prove to the city that the culvert is (FOR SURE) collapsed in the middle somewhere. I am thinking of constructing some sort of wireless web cam / led light setup that i can push up the length of the culvert to record what is actually going on to prove to the city that they DO have a problem and where exactly it can be found. I am thinking of a rugged sort of wire (similar to a coat hanger) and a 2 liter bottle (or similar) to house the cam and some small led flashlights. The device will need to be pretty small... have light and be able to stay somewhat upright so it won't flip upside down once in the "tunnel". I am looking for some ideas on how to execute this. If you have any recommendations, please send a shout my way. I would love to get some great proof to head straight down to the DPW and see what they have to say then.I have even called the local news team to help me with exposing the problem. To see the story that was on the news, go here...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpjGmS9GJ_wThe photo shows the receiver and the wireless cam i am thinking of using.Or maybe i would be better off using a wired cam, due to the signal loss of being underground, either way, i have some really small cameras i can use, it is just a matter of the housing and the lighting... and a way to push it and make sure i can get it back later.

Webcam and object?

Hello experts, I have this code which works so perfect while detecting square objects from images which are downloaded from internet. However, when I am taking the image of a square object from my webcam and processing, its not turning out to be as expected. I am suspecting, the reason could be due to the green and pink hues which are dominantly captured from webcam. The actual output which is being obtained is that there are squares distributed at random places. What do you all suggest? PS http://i49.tinypic.com/2lw8xw0_th.jpg here, only one circle should be there around the white circular object thats being held.

webcam with cad software?

Ok, so I have to do some engineering drawings of our robot arm for science olympaid. For now I can just make stuff really easily in paint in like 10min. But part of our score is in the quality of paperwork if there is a tie for operation. We are building a new arm that will be much more complicated. I happen to have a webcam above a white panel for creating things for a video game development thing my little bro got. (software is nothing impressive, probably not even as good as ms paint). I do have auto cad software, but havent used it much (my grandpa gave the pc to me and he had it on here). Is there any sort of program or feature in cad that allows you to kind of scan things in? I think that our bimba pnumatic cylinders are worthy of being accurately rendered in cad. But I dont have the knowledge of how to do it "free hand"

Add a battery to a USB Webcam? Answered

So what I am doing is extending the cable of a webcam and the computer no longer recognize the Camera. So everything I have found suggests I use a power USB hub to give it the extra oofh needed to make the distance. But what I am doing makes that not possible because I will be outside far from any outlets. What I plan to do is place a battery on the camera is self and only transfer the data of USB. My thoughts were to connect a battery to the power lines of the USB cable but the Diagram says that red is DC, that's fine but the black is listed as a GROUND. That implies I couldn't just hook the negative the the black wire. Is this so? If it is how could I complete the circuit?
