Many cameras can serve as a webcam, sure; however the A60 camera is not designed to do this. I have checked the manuals. I even have an A610 and it doesn't do it. Sorry.

In the future, here is a helpful article that describes how to accomplish this. But asking if you camera can do it, of course, is the first, and most important question. Great question.

Please mark as FIXYA, thanks.

How do i use it as web cam Kodak v350


Almost no digital camera can be used as webcam, because without the correct software the computer will not recognise it as a web cam and won't be able to put through the images that come from the camera's sensor. Most digital camera's won't allow you to put live view on, was soon as an USB cable is conneted.

I got sony cybershot dsc p 200 model digital camera. But it is not supported as web cam . Please give suggestions to set up the camera as web cam


Many digital cameras support streaming video over the USB connection, to use as a webcam. Unfortunately Sony cameras do not do this; I am confident of this, because they offer a tutorial describing how to make an analogue connection from your camera to your computer, for use as a webcam! (I feel this is a poor solution because few computers have an analogue video-in connection, and not all cameras have a video-out. They would not offer this solution if the USB streaming was possible.)

I'm sorry to tell you that unless you are really lucky and are able to follow Sony's tutorial, your best bet is to buy a webcam and forget using your camera. A whole webcam could easily be cheaper than the cable that Sony suggest you use...

Want to use digital cam as web cam and want use hard disk directy


Unfortunately, you're going to have to buy one or two more cameras.

The A470 was not designed to stream images and videos to a computer, but to record them onto a memory card. It cannot be used as a webcam. Nor cannot it be connected to a computer to save images directly to your hard disk.

Canon's digital SLRs can store images directly to your computer using dedicated software, but they cannot be used as webcams.

So, if you want a webcam, you need to acquire one. Likewise, if you want to save images directly to your computer, you need a camera that can do that. Some webcams can record and store still images, but they tend to be rather low-res, often only 640x480 (0.3 megapixels). Even HD video is only 2 megapixels. Webcams and cameras are two completely different things.

Can i use this camera as a Web Cam like some other cameras?


step 1 Check the manual of your digital camera to see if it can be used as a webcam. Many digital cameras have this functionality and even come with webcam software. If your camera didn't come with webcam software, use a third party web cam application such as SarmSoft WebCam. Find SarmSoft WebCam at ShareUp.com.
Step 2 Plug your digital camera's power adapter into the camera. Some won't function as a webcam unless they are plugged into A/C power. Even if your digital camera functions as a webcam while on batteries, A/C power saves your batteries and prevents your camera from shutting off in the middle of a broadcast.
Step 3 Connect a video cable into your digital camera's video "out" port. Your camera likely came with a cable made for connecting it to a to a video source. Plug the other end of the video cable into your video card's video "in" port.
Step 4 Set up your camera as close to your monitor as possible. This allows better face to face communication.
Step 5 Position yourself about 2 to 3 feet away from your digital camera. Most digital camera's focus best at this distance when used as a webcam.
Step 6 Use a separate microphone if your digital camera doesn't transmit sound when used as a webcam. Plug the microphone into the microphone jack of your sound card

No Web Cam


I e-mailed the company and they gave me an answer. It works because the manual that comes with the camera doesn't tell you how to put the camera in Web Mode. This is a strait copy and paste of their answer:



Please note that you will have to set the camera to PC Camera mode before using the webcam function.
