Palm Presentations

Another solution for demoing Palm PDAs to a group is to use a document camera attached to your powerbook/desktop tat is then connected to a video projector. An iSight camera works ok - easiest to use powerbook monitor clip to hold the iSight in place, then pull up a video preview window in iChat, and resize to fit screen. Downside is: picture is REVERSED! To get around this, use the new direct video recording feature of QuikTime Pro7 - the display video is not reversed as in iChat, however you can't resize the preview window, BUT using 'zoom' feature of OSX (alt+command+'=") you can zoom in on the video window - PRESTO!.
