Yes it is. Here is a link to some freeware: http://jpegclub.org/cam4you/index.htm

Note: I wouldn't use a $300-$400 camera to do the job of a $30 web
cam though. :~)

G'luck -

Does this software break down the Powershots in any way??

Some people say it would wear down the sensor. Personally I doubt that and wouldn't mind being able to use my A70 as a webcam occasionally. Unfortunately, as far I understand, all that cam4you utilities can do is to take pics at certain intervals and upload them to a website.
