Canon Powershot SX 710 HS computer display

 Hi, I don't do this sort of thing ofter so please excuse the build of this post.


I want to know if it is possible to somehow connect my Powershot SX 710 HS to my computer and use it as a webcam of a sort.


There are many different software that I can use to do it via WIFI and even then it won't really fill my agenda's requirements.


Please assist if you can by telling me what I need and should do to make this goal a reality.

Hi Janes,


Thank you for posting.


None of Canon's PowerShot cameras are able to function as a webcam.

Our EOS Digital SLR and EOS M (mirrorless) cameras do offer remote capture capability.
