    Can you show me the book?

    Hi,

    Suppose than I am chatting to a girl on the Internet.
    We are talking about a special scientific book. I wants to see the book which she has and I say to her:

    1. Can I see the book through the webcam?
    2. Can I see the book by webcam?
    3. Can I see the book into the webcam?
    4. Can I see the book from the webcam?
    5. Can I see the book off the webcam?

    (I don't know which one fits well)
    Would you please help me to make the question correctly? What's your opinion about my above examples?
    How would you say if you were me?

    Thank you

    Re: Can you show me the book?

    I'd use #1 or say 'Can you hold up the book to the webcam?'

    Thank you. Can this sentence be correct as well? "Can you show me the book on your cam?"
    Can it be correct as well?
