Use a camera as a webcam?

I have a camera with video support on it and instead of trying to find a webcam (and having to spent money) that works with OSX86 I was wondering if I could just somehow use my camera??

Mac OS X 10.5.5 Voodoo 9.5.0 2.7 GHz AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5200+ 2 GB 1334 MHz DDR2 NVIDIA GeForce 9500M-M MB Maxtor 75 GB IDE

I dont think you`ll manage to use it as a webcam unless you have an app/drivers for it and i guess you dont have them. There are universal drivers for webcams for Mac OS but i dont think you`ll find something like that for a still camera. But i may be wrong...
