Cheap camera to take ecommerce products photos from the computer (preview)


Hello,

I was looking for a cheap camera and software that would allow me to preview on my computer the photos (of my ecommerce shop products) that I want to take.

On this page it seems that the only cheap device (less than $100) is Xiaomi Yi Action Camera*
http://www.digicamcontrol.com/cameras

Can you confirm that all other cameras are expensive dslr, or do you know any cheap camera that I could use with your software ?

And if Xiaomi Yi Action Camera is the only cheap one, can you confirm that I will be able to preview the photos on my computer as Canon EOS utility software ?

Thank you so much for your reply.

Hi,
If you use the latest beta version you can use any webcamera to capture a photo, but i don't know if the image quality will be good enough

Thank you. I am still searching for a compact cheap camera that would be good enough, but cannot find any working with preview softwares as yours. If I cannot find I will try the xiaomi because it's cheap. Thanks again.

For webcam you need to use the latest beta version...

I use the 2.0.76.1
I've checked the "webcam support" option in advanced settings.
But I can't detect my webcam (integrated to the computer).
I've tried on 2 différents devices

I'm using the 2.0.76.1 version.
I've tried on 2 différents devices (Windows 7 and Windows 10) and the internal webcam isn't recignized as a camera. I've also tried launching in administrator mode.
In advanced settings, the webcam parameter is checked.
Maybe I need to activate some plugin ?
