No, digital cameras usually cannot be used as webcams unfortunately because they do not have the correct softwear to hook up to a computer.

I want to configur canon A490 power shoot digital camera as web cam of my desktop pc.Plz provide me adiquqte information for solve it out?

The Remote Capture software included on the Canon Digital Camera Solutions Disk provides the capability to take and store images remotely using your computer via the USB connection for many PowerShot cameras. This is not the same as providing real-time, live video feed to a web server. Apparently some people have been successful in using their Canon digital camera as a webcam utilizing the Audio/Video Out port (if your camera is so equipped). Canon does not recommend using your camera in this manner

Good morning can i use my canon powershot a 470 camera as a web cam ?

No, you cannot use the PowerShot as a web cam. It was designed as a camera, to store images (and incidentally, videos) to a memory card. It was not designed to stream live images to another device.

No I am afraid you cannot use this as a web cam. I have asked Canon about this and they said that it isn't capable. Sorry
