Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
Hi, just bought a Canon digital camera and I was wondering if it can also be used as a webcam and how to do it?
From what I managed to find out this is the situation:
It is possible to use it as a webcam if you connect camera video out to some video capture card (if you have any) in the computer. Also you must have software to support this connection.
The reason I wasn't more specific about how to connect the camera and what software to use is because no one recommends using this camera for that purpose. First you would need external power source (AC/DC adaptor), because your batteries won't last long when continously recording video. Other, much more important thing is that camera is heating and can be seriously damaged if it's used like this for longer time.
Advice is to buy some cheap USB webcam and use that one.
