      My webcam is not compatible with my newer computer, which is Win 10.

    I want to know if there is such a thing as a 'portable' webcam, i.e., you can use it with apps such as Skype, but can also unplug it, and use as a video cam away from computer, then upload your video when you plug it back into the computer.

    If there is such an 'animal,' I guess it would be out of my budget range anyhow--but I'm curious.

      Hi DZ,
      I record videos on my iPhone that I later upload to and view on my computer.

      So there is no way can download driver for your webcam that would work with Win10? I suppose your webcam is generic no name and really should be auto recognized but this is Windows.I am assuming that this is a USB webcam.

        I don't know; I may be able to get a driver update I think it's a Logitech camera; its shaped like a little ball.

        In any case, that does not solve the issue of portability, and being able to use it also away from the computer.

        I'll have a look at those sites; thank you for that.

          Almost all digital cameras can be used as webcams, especially SLR's. Just do a youtube search for "use normal digital camera as a webcam" and theres many that show you how!
