    Default Connect and External Camera to and Android?

    Anyone know if it is possible to connect and external USB camera to an Android? I found Ustream and have stared to use that application but I would like to connect a Microsoft USB web cam to to my phone so that I can use that to capture images with. I would like to mount the camera on a helmet (for live stream of a sporting event) and keep the phone in my pocket.
    Any suggestions?

    Assume I have an adapter that makes the USB mate with the mini USB port on the phone...

    I am looking of the exact same thing.

    I have a Muvi Veho mini that doesn't have a viewfinder.

    I'd like to connect it to my Android when it's mounted on my bike helmet and use the phone as viewfinder.

    Have you found anything since posting the query?

    I'm assuming these activities would require the phone to act as a USB host, which any version of Android below 3.1 can't do.
