Question about Canon PowerShot G2 Digital Camera
It depends if you want real time video or not -many of the applications that can deal with a webcam will not cope with the file size and quality produced by a "proper" digital camera. The simplest solution is to go and get a webcam - cheap ones are less than $15 and you can even get a very basic one free in some areas if you register with skype (www.skype.com) or other communications agencies. Although your camera may possibly be able to transfer video to your pc in real time - no connection speed currently available in the world over the internet will be able to deal with this in real time unless you drop the quality of video in your camera to a level that it does not permit. wait about two years or less and the answer to your question should be yes. No bets, maybe 5 years, but not much longer. Your particular model should be able to work in a "webcam" type way over a direct private network, such as security camera setups.

Hope this helps :)
