    I've got an old Nikon Coolpix 5200 thats been sitting in my closet.

    Any cool/ creative uses for old cameras? :dunno:

    I wanted to turn it into a webcam for my Mac Pro but it doesn't look like thats possible.

    if you do it yourself, free :mamoru:

    just take it apart, drill down to the sensor and remove the ir cut filter in front of it

    Donate it to an elementary school.

    I work at an elementary school and am trying to do an art/photography class with kids during the summer but the school just doesn't have the budget to buy a bunch of P&S's.
