    Hi everyone,

    I'm thinking about getting the USB camera connection kit, but was wondering if it would work with a webcam.

    I have an app called timelapse for my iphone 3gs, and was hoping there would be a way to connect my logitech 9000 webcam and take timelapse videos.

    This camera has a much better lens than my 3GS and allows for 8 mp photos to be taken, this would make for much nicer timelapse videos than through my 3GS.


    Jailbreaking is not a problem if needed for software, just looking for confirmation that this might work before I spend the money on the camera connector. I haven't been able to find anyone talking specifically about attaching a USB webcam to an Ipad after extensive google searching, so I thought I'd ask.

    It won't work because the webcam needs drivers installed and you can't do that on the iPad.

    Wonder if I'd be able to use their software + my webcam and a usb camera connect kit. That webcam is not nearly as nice as the logitech (actually, doesn't really even look better than the built in camera in the Iphone 3gs)

    Doubtful. I don't think their camera uses the USB connect kit.

    It just might work with UVC cameras (and a powered hub)

    In fact, if the camera is a USB Video Class (UVC) camera, no camera specific drivers are necessary (or maybe just a built-in one, that honors the UVC standard). Automatically recognized by OSX, Vista, Win7. On the Mac, UVC cameras just work, even with iChat. Don't know if iOS includes the UVC driver.
