One neat feature of most Motorola cellphones, including that of the Motorola ROKR E6 is that it can be easily used as a web camera with your computer. This is very handy since Motorola cellphones do not need any special cables and work with the ubiquitous mini-USB-to-USB cable. To use it as a web camera:
Install the web camera driver that is present on the CD accompanying the cellphone.
On the cellphone, open Setup → USB Mode and choose Webcamera.
Connect the cellphone through USB to the computer. It should be detected by Windows as a USB Video Device.
The cellphone camera should work as a web camera from any application. Switch the cellphone camera lens between Landscape and Macro modes to suit your need.
