I want to use the canon sx 50 as a webcam. How can I do that? What software do I need to load on my laptop?
Thanks for the question about the Canon SX50HS. It's an interesting choice to use as a web cam because of its size. One of the accessories available to DSLR owners that is often overlooked is software to make their cameras more useful.
