"Hi there,

I would like to know if there's any way I can use my Canon Powershot sx420-IS as a webcam to do live stream on FB or Youtube?"


Thanks for your question about using Your Canon Powershot SX420 IS as a webcam for live streaming. That seems to be a hot topic now that the restrictions from the Covid-19 pandemic are affecting how we meet and socialize.

Canon makes software specifically for some of its cameras to be used as webcams. The SX420 IS is not listed as one of them. You'll find related posts that will help you:

"i am basicl just a girl whole REALLY wants to make this hobbie into a n escape for myself. bfehind the linds is an awesome feeling of completeness. So my question is this.is $125 to much to pay or a SX420IS. i plan on keeping this, but its came from the pawn shop with none off the accessories. and dose anyone want to sell their old stuff to me?
thaks so much!"


Hi Wendy,

Thanks for your question about the 420SX IS camera and a good price for a used one. The price you quoted of $125 is probably inline with what you'll find elsewhere, but it really depends on what condition it's in.

The best strategy when buying a used camera is to make sure you can test it after you buy and still return it in a reasonable amount of time. I just bought a used lens for my Canon 70D, have tested it thoroughly over the last 3 days, and am quite happy with both the price and the condition it's in.

The SX420 IS fairly new (2016) so it has some nice technology built into it. Canon's SX Cameras have been very popular to "bridge" the gap between point and shoot cameras and Canon DSLR cameras.

Canon SX420 IS Best Specs


*20 Megapixel Sensor
*42x Zoom Lens
*Shutter Speeds of 1/4000 to 15 Seconds.

Wendy, You should check ebay for prices on both new and used SX420 IS camera to get a feel for what prices are appropriate. Some offers will include accessories and some won't.

Good Luck
Bruce
