SOURCE: Powershot SD1000 as webcam

I tired to do this with my SD600 and could not figure it out but I think it is possible with some changes to the camera like this

anyway I have not tried it because they don't support the sd600 so I have no idea if this is safe or works.

SOURCE: i want take canon powershot as a webcam

The camera has a video output, if I remember correctly. Most of the models come with the video output adaptor cable. With some models that have the option, the cable has to be purchased separately.

For the computer you need a video capture card with the capture software, and that your web conference program would be compatible with.

When using the camera as a live video camera, it is best to have the optional AC power supply. You will find that the batteries will not last very long. This camera was designed primarily to be used as a photo camera.

You cannot use the USB output of the camera for live video. The USB output can only transfer recorded video and photos from the memory card. It is not able to stream a live output as like a webcam.

By-the-way, Canon will not support using a camera of this type for a web cam. They actualy take it as an insult.

It is best to get a dedicated webcam. These are very low in cost, and are appropriate for the application. The video bandwidth will be very large when using a photo camera as a webcam. You better make sure you have unlimited data usage with a good high speed ISP. There may be delays during high traffic times, and if someone wants to communicate with you using a dialup modem, it will probably be impossible.

SOURCE: CANON PowerShot A430 4.0mp Digital Camera eating batteries

The A430 is a 2 battery camera, and is known for being power hungry. Alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pictures in a digital camera (especially a 2 battery camera). Lithiums can also have problems. Some may also have reached their shelf life, and though right out of the package may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. If you read the camera's instruction manual concerning batteries, you may see the same recommendation. Modern NiMH batteries have over five times the energy concentration of the average alkaline (yep over five times more power!).

Keep in mind rechargeable NiMH batteries will save you money in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may be angry with yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

The A430 is prone to fatigue failure of a flex cable internal to the camera that causes these symptoms. Please see this other Fixya article.

The Canon A430 uses MMC and SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Canon Powershot A430 - can i charge batteries through AC


The A430 is a camera, not a battery charger. If you want to use rechargeable batteries then you must use a separate charger. Battery chargers should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.
