The IXUS 850 IS is designed to store still images (and incidentally, videos) to memory. It is not designed to stream live video to another device.

I know that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

I understand that it takes a maximum of 2GB. Still loads of photo/video capability. Don't make the mistake I did of buying a 4GB SDHC card for it. It won't take it.

SOURCE: Can the canon ixus 80 is be used as a webcam?

It may be able to be used that way (but its pretty iffy)...you would have to have to have a computer with an RCA-type video in jack (or an installed TV tuner card with the same RCA-type video in jack).

And if you have that setup on your computer, then you could use the AV cable that is supplied with this camera to send video out (either what is being shown on the screen in shooting mode, or already taken pictures/videos in playback mode) to your PC.

You would then need to point whatever software you are using to broadcast your webcam stream to the "video in" jack as the source of your webcam video (if it even allows for that option).

If you can do all that, it MIGHT be possible, but its probably a pretty long shot.

Use a separate card reader to transfer the video to a folder you create on your desktop. Try using Quicktime to open it.

My camera just says "card locked" and I have no idea what to do! Can you please help me? Canon IXUS 850 IS


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts write-protects the card, locking it. The position nearest the contacts enables write, unlocking it. If the slide is already near the contacts, try sliding it fully away and then fully back.

If that doesn't work, try a different card.

Canon ixus camera says my movie clip is an error


The video files your particular camera makes should be AVI format. What media player are you using? I've heard of problems playing AVI files with Windows Media Player.
Try using a different media player like VLC or Winamp. There are also video format conversion programs out there for free. I use anyvideoconverter for that. You can get all of those programs from cnet.com's download center.

Batteries


Hey, the IXUS 850 IS doesn't take the standard AA batteries! It has a proprietary Li-ion battery pack that can be charged using the provided external battery charger unit.
