Using office computers as security cameras

I have an open-plan office full of computers, about 75% Macs. We're considering putting in security cameras with a DVR. It seems to me that with all these computers (and a bunch of spares, at that) we could do this with what we have instead of paying a security company for dedicated hardware. What can I use to coordinate multiple webcams and do security-DVR-type stuff with them?

Help me get the pictures from my digital camera onto my Mac

I have a Canon Ixus 65 and I want to get the photos off the camera and onto my iPhoto-less Mac (10.4.10). I tried to go to Canon's website to download their Image Browser software but I can only find an update that works if you have a previous version of Image Browser on your computer. I don't have the discs that came with my camera and Image Browser is not installed. I refuse to believe I'm screwed. [more inside]

How do I get video off of a digital camera onto my mac?

I'm attempting to take video off of my Canon SD200 digital camera (note: not camcorder) and put it onto my Mac PowerBook G4 so I can edit it in iMovie, but I can't figure out how to do it. If this were a PC, I'd have no issue, but my PC is nearly 7 years old, and probably can't handle video, let alone video editing. Do I need a program? Do I need to get my mac to register that the camera is connected? Help?

Mac OS X driver for SCM eUSB Smartmedia card reader?

I have an SCM eUSB Smartmedia card reader that I got with my Fuji MX-2900 camera a few years ago. I need to locate the Mac OS X driver for it. I had the driver installed on my laptop, but my laptop was stolen. I looked for the driver and contacted SCM directly, but the product is discontinued and not supported. Does anyone have the driver or know how to get it?

Camera for Mom

I'm helping my mother buy a digital camera for her extended trip to Thailand and have exhausted dpreview.com and the various other review sites. I need real-people recommendations: she wants something with decent resolution (at least 3 mp; I hope for 4 or better); under $300 hopefully; decent battery life (we tried a Nikon Coolpix but the batteries didn't last long enough - the Canon Powershot s50 batteries lasted for 200 shots and lots of flash, but the camera is just out of her price range); compact flash, since I have a number of cards for her, and ease of use. And it has to work with an older iMac with os9. Any ideas?
