hey ya'll, i did a search but nothing came up for this...i was wondering if it is possible to hook up my own camcorder to my 360 to act as an alternative to the vision camera?

perhaps, but it would've been nice to not force us to pay for their crappy webcam when i already own a nice camcorder.

Yeah I know, it sucks. You should be able to use your own USB webcam or something, like how we're able to use our own headsets if we so desire. Lame. :mad:

I didnt bother to click the link but i think you can hook up a webcam through the usb port and use that...?

I have looked for alternatives, even the Microsoft LifeCam series of webcams are incompatible with the Xbox 360... but for some reason the 360 camera works with your PC. It's a pretty crappy deal but if you'd like to video chat you'll need that I'm afraid.
