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 A495 the memory

Good day,

This tip will explain how to remove the write protect from your SD Card.

This is a easy fix and won't take a minute.

First remove your SD Card from your device. You will see on the side of the SD Card that there is a small switch. If your SD Card complains about being write protected simply put the switch in the opposite position. Some of the SD Cards even have the word LOCK on near the switch indicating the direction the switch must be to LOCK the card.



Once the switch is changed you can put the SD Card back into your device and the problem of write protection would be solved.

Please feel free to let me know if this tip was able to help you!

Your camera almost certainly has a lens error, this is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!

Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Canon service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.

If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Good luck, I hope you manage to use this information to fix your camera, or at least are able to use the information to help decide whether to buy another camera. If you do decide that you have to throw your camera away then don't forget to remove the memory card as it can be used in other devices. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome.

I havent drivers for canon A495


Hi Sadia Exactly what kind of drivers are you looking for? All the software etc. that you normally need is bundled on a CD when you buy the camera. Failing that, you can go to www.powershot.com where there is a vast library of downloadable drivers and software available.
Hope this helps

How to unlock my memory card of Canon PowerShot A495 Digital Camera


Take your memory card out of the camera and switch the position of the "lock" tab. One position is for "locked" (i.e., "Write Protected") and the other position will allow the card to be written to (unlocked). Some cameras have image protection built into the on-camera software and you may need to configure this there.

On my canon powershot A495 my camera says lens error restart camera but i havent mistreated it how can i fix this myself


Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

I have a canon powershort A495 camera now it shows "memory card is locked" let me know how it can be cure?


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
