ABOUT WEB CAMERAS:
Web cameras or web cams (also known as spy cams) are linked to a computer with
special software and hardware which enables the camera to transmit a picture or
moving image digitally, and then via an Internet connection, onto the Web. Some
web cameras are video cameras which update their screen images in a matter of
seconds, or a few minutes; others are still digital cameras programmed by the
operator to take pictures at regular intervals.
Images may be live and continuous, or selectively transmitted several times
a day, depending upon the operator, the camera, and the Internet connection.
TIME YOUR VISIT TO WEB CAMS!
Often, web cams are not operative after dark, show only a black image, or post
a representative image from the preceding daytime images. For maximum
enjoyment, plan your travels during the daytime in the localities you visit!
