Connect to laptop

Is there any way to connect this older style camera to my laptop?  It was from purchased here http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MXILRAE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and is pictured below.  I want to connect it to my laptop and use this open-source software http://www.ispyconnect.com/ to control it?

There is no such product for a laptop to supply the 12V needed to operate the camera.


If you scroll down in the link you gave in your question: ( It was from purchased here) to Customer Questions & Answers, the first is:

"what cable can i buy that will connect this to my computer?

A:  This camera is not designed to be connected directly to a computer. As it has RCA-type jacks it is designed to be plugged in to a recording hard drive. It also requires a power supply.
"

"Is there any way to connect this older style camera to my laptop?"
No there is not.

You can get a RCA to USB adapter, but then. you would also need to hook up a Power Supply: DC12V/500mA ...
Ultimately it could be done if your technically skilled to connect the power adapter (cutting and joining wires will be required) and willing to pay for a RCA to USB adapter and a DC12V/500mA power adapter.
