I've heard that the camcorder can operate as a webcam over USB. Perhaps going that route and setting up some sort of cam software to take snapshots at intervals would accomplish that task. I've yet to try this device in that manner myself and you'd be advised to be plugged into a socket since the battery only lasts 2 hours. And in cam mode it might only do 720p or something odd.
Broke out the cable. And tried....
Menu pops up
- card reader
- screen capture
- pc camera
select pc camera
v4l-info in linux says.....
640x480 mjpeg - colorspace SRGB
Looks like resolutions between 48x32 to 640x480 are supported in that mode. Not exactly HD, but probably better at webcam stuff than your typical $50 BB special. I'm unfamiliar with MTP or Screen Capture, maybe they work in that regard. Or not.
