SOURCE: how to use canon a460 as web cam

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.

My Canon PowerShot A460 cam is working well until yesterday, the biggest festival here in our place took place. teh flash, the lcd screen, etc is working... but, when i took pictures, the lcd screen turns...


Please try and reset the mode of the image to see if the LCD does not go blank when shown to higher light. Also if there is no issue with the indoor pictures then it is possible that the auto light detection is giving a higher value to reset the image balancing. Shift from Auto to manual mode and try.
