Anybody have a beach cam?

Hi,

Does anyone have a beach cam for web hookup. I am trying to figure out what is
involved in putting one together, cost, techinical hurdles, etc.

I wanted to do this once, and put the phrase "how to set up a web cam"
into google. Got more information than I could use.

There are kits available that come with basically everything that you
need except the pc and continuous internet connection. They include
the camera and software needed to upload the images. They can be
pretty affordable, the key is having the continuous connection.

Randy,

Check out my surfcam on the west coast of Scotland:

I use Conquercam, which cost about $10 to register. Conquercam is
relatively easy to configure. The camera itself is an inexpensive Precision
camera (about $15). I often shoot through x10 binoculars which provide a
very good close up of the state of the water and the sailing action here on
the Gareloch in Scotland - check out the webcam archive for examples.
