QUESTION: Does anyone know if this works similarly to a standard webcam I'd like to know if I could use it in things like Google Chat or importing images directly into graphics programs like GIMP or Photoshop. by None N 8/31/2012
ANSWER: no it doesn't, it has a really high magnification on it so would not be useful for that type of use. if you really want a webcam I would suggest a Microsoft LifeCam, it has really good picture quality by Eric Z 9/24/2012
