Re: National Geographic Web Cam

In order to get the camera to move (after you have set your magnification -
if you wish to change it) - you click on an area of the picture that you
wish to make the center of the new picture.  For instance, to view the claws
and ribs, click on the right side of the picture near the edge [ACTUALLY ON
THE PICTURE!!!].  You will get a message (if your browser is set up to
protect you) saying that the infomation that you are sending out may be
private and will be open to viewing by nearly anyone.  The new picture will
appear fairly rapidly.

    I have had occasional problems using the webcam - it says it's

        Good viewing!
