As the COVID-19 pandemic struck with increasing demand for video conferencing, camera manufacturers were allowing these devices to act as webcams. Now, Nikon has introduced a new software that can turn a DSLR or mirrorless camera into a webcam for Mac and Windows PC.
With Nikon Webcam Utility Software (via Engadget), users can connect several Nikon cameras to the computer via USB connection to use them as a real webcam. This is extremely useful for those without a webcam or for those who only have a low-quality webcam – such as the 480p and 720p front-facing cameras built into the Mac.
If you have a compatible camera, all you have to do is install Nikon̵7;s software and then connect the device to your computer. It works with most video conferencing services and other webcam-compatible software.
By installing Webcam Utility and connecting a compatible camera to a computer, users can enjoy outstanding picture quality and beautiful depth of field during live streaming, remote conferencing, or gaming.
Check out the list of compatible Nikon cameras below:
- Nikon Z 7II, Z 7, Z 6II and Z 6
- Nikon Z 5 and Z 50
- Nikon D6 and D5
- Nikon D850 and D810
- Nikon D780 and D750
- Nikon D500
- Nikon D7500 and D7200
- Nikon D5600, D5500, D5300 and D3500
The Nikon Webcam Utility software is available for free on the Nikon website and requires a Mac running macOS High Sierra or later or a Windows 10 computer.
