    A camera saves the photo to memory. A webcam is different in the way that it captures photos and then sends it to the computer in a steady stream... So the internal working is different. Sometimes its possible to do what you are suggesting but it depends heavily on the way the processor works in the original firmware. The speed of the processor also comes into play. I'll look things up on the net but... I wouldn't hold my breath. Its a tall order. Given that a webcam costs about $15 or so, retail, I doubt if someone is going to spend their time and work up a driver for it.
