I have a 2500 and I'm trying to work out if I can use it as a webcam...? If that's possible could you please link me to the drivers or whatever I would need?


Sorry, you can't use this camera as a webcam. Most digital cameras cannot be used as webcams, you can buy an inexpensive webcam for about $25.

Can i use my canon digital ixus 75 camera as a web cam?


Many people ask if they can use their digital camera as a webcam. In the early days of digital imaging, it made sense to dual-function a camera because a webcam was a serious investment. However, webcams are now so inexpensive that manufacturers are not considering this functionality important in their digital cameras. In fact even the word 'webcam' creates the impression of bad imaging, so associating this function with a camera actually makes the camera seem 'cheap'.

Your camera is actually quite a new, and a nice camera. It doesn't make a lot of sense for Canon to make it work as a webcam, because it's a waste. And in any case, you'd expect a webcam to be powered by a wall outlet or the USB... but most modern cameras like yours don't come with adapter-power, they have battery chargers instead. And they take too much current to use the USB power. By the time they'd added the extras to make it work properly as a webcam, you could BUY a USB webcam separately.

Anyway, back to your question... so, can your camera be used as a webcam? Probably not, but here's how you can tell. Make sure you've installed all the software you can find for your camera, power it up, and plug it in. Windows will tell you if it has a webcam function. If it's a webcam, then it will appear in "My Computer" as a device, right along with all the disk drives. To be sure, go to your control panel and select "Scanners and Cameras". Is your camera listed? If not... it's not a webcam.

In the unlikely event that you have a 'video in' on your computer, and that your camera has a 'video out' then you can follow the instructions on the sony site ("how to use a digital still camera as a webcam"); but most people will not have that yellow 'video in' connection.

Sorry this wasn't the news you really wanted.

Can it be a webcam?


No, you cannot use the Canon SX100 camera as a webcam device under the Canon software.

It has hardware/software limitations to used it as one webcam, mainly because it was not designed as one.

There are some 3rd party applications that claim that can be used it to have a digital camera ans some Canon PowerShot models simulating a WebCam. The issue is that such applications cost money ($50.00 average). You can try at your own risk in the following web link:

http://www.filebuzz.com/findsoftware/Canon_PowerShot_Sx100_webcam/1.html

I am seeing that you can check at your own risk because there are several variables that may arise and cause a conflict (USB drivers, applicartions drivers for Xp, Mac, Vista, incompatibility with your camera, etc).

I do recommend you to have debugged your webcam so it's working properly.

Best regards,

Use a digital camera like a webcam


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

Digital Camera BenQ DC C500 as a webcam


Digital camera's do not normally operate as a webcam however I have come across the odd one that can do this. Cameras usually appear as a removable disk to the opperating system. Are you sure your camera can work in this way?
